FDB MedGuides Module™

Providing access to Medication Guides filed with the FDA.

The FDB MedGuides Module is a convenient source for all currently available Medication Guides submitted by manufacturers through the FDA Structured Product Label (SPL) file and subsequently posted to the National Library of Medicine’s (NLM) “Daily Med” website. Through validated links to the National Drug Code (NDC) in FDB MedKnowledge, the module provides a notification to pharmacists when a Medication Guide is required for a drug product and provides automated access to all electronic Medication Guides filed with the FDA, in PDF and XML format.

Since 1999, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has required that Medication Guides be issued by pharmacies to ensure that consumers who are prescribed drugs and biological products that pose serious and significant public health risks, use them appropriately.

FDB MedGuides Module Advantages:

  • Alleviates the cumbersome manual process of identifying, locating and distributing hard copy Medication Guides.
  • Helps expedite the processing time for certain high-risk drugs at the point of dispensing.
