Any medicine that requires the permission, instruction or prescription of the attending physician is called a prescription medicine. Unlike medicines that can be bought over the counter, the use of prescription medicines is highly regulated by law because of the probable effects that may be harmful to consumers.

Typically, when a prescription medicine is bought, a leaflet can be found along with its packaging. This leaflet is called the Consumer Medicine Information (CMI). It is in this leaflet that detailed information about the medicine is written. A patient can refer to the leaflet for information about the substances included in the medicine, dose of the medicine as well as the different precaution and probable side effects that may come along with the intake of the drug. Always follow your doctor's instructions when it comes to prescription medicine.
