Generic Medicines

You may notice that the name of your medicines may change or will have changed.  This is because we use generic names.  If you are worried about the change in name or appearance of your medicines, check with the pharmacist or doctor who will be able to explain why they are different.  For example, Paracetamol is the generic name for Panadol.
