The information provided with medicines is often complex and may not always be relevant to children. This website provides easily understandable information about medicines which may be prescribed for children. The aim of this project is to provide appropriate and accurate information about medicine dosages, side-effects and general advice to those giving medicines to infants, children and young people in their care. A number of leaflets have been produced on a range of topics including pain and epilepsy.

The leaflets have been written by paediatricians and pharmacists with the help of a professional medical editor. They have also been reviewed by parents.
