    Doctors must now prescribe drugs using their chemical name, not brand names. That’s good news for patients

    From today (February 1), when you receive a prescription in Australia, it will list the name of the medication’s active ingredient rather than the brand name. So, for example, instead of receiving a prescription for Ventolin, your script will say “salbutamol”.

    This national legislation change, called active ingredient prescribing, is long overdue for Australian health care.

    Using the name of the drug — instead of the brand name, of which there are often many — will simplify how we talk about and use medications.

    This could have a range of benefits, including fewer medication errors by both doctors and patients.
