11. What does the medicine look like?

In section one on all med+info leaflets there is a clear description of what the medicine looks like and In addition there are images of most tablets and capsule.

Always check that your medicine fits the med+info leaflet description, if it does not then ask your pharmacist to check that you have the correct medicine that the doctor prescribed.

Sometimes the Government will change the “brand” of a particular medicine to a more cost effective brand that is just as effective. This cheaper brand will normally be a generic medicine and will probably look different from the other brand. The med+info leaflet for the generic medicine will have a clear description and image of the medicine for you to check.
