NLM is hosting a public workshop about using DailyMed data on September 18, 2014. Click here for details.
DailyMed provides high quality information about marketed drugs. This information includes FDA labels (package inserts). This Web site provides health information providers and the public with a standard, comprehensive, up-to-date, look-up and download resource of medication content and labeling as found in medication package inserts. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) provides this as a public service and does not accept advertisements.
Drug labeling and other information in the SPL is what has been most recently submitted by drug companies to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as drug listing information (See 21 CFR part 207). The drug labeling has been reformatted to make it easier to read but its content has not been altered or verified by FDA or National Library of Medicine. The drug labeling on this Web site may not be the labeling on currently distributed products or identical to the labeling that is approved. Drugs marked "OTC monograph final" or "OTC monograph not final" are not checked for conformance to the monograph. Drugs marked "unapproved" on this Web site have not been reviewed by FDA for safety and efficacy and their labeling has not been approved. For more information about unapproved drugs, visit Enforcement Activities by FDA .
Other information about drugs may also be available. NLM regularly processes data files uploaded from FDA's system and provides and maintains this Web site for the public to use in accessing the information. Additional information about medicines is available on NLM's MedlinePlus Web site http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/medicines.html.
