MIMS updates the medicines data each month with at least 150 changes to the product information each month. It is very important therefore that users of eMIMS ensure that they have the latest information at their fingertips.

We send an updated eMIMS DVD three times per year – April, August and December. However, in between these release the monthly updates are provided on this site.

Full instructions on how to update the eMIMS application are detailed below.

Errata

Critical Correction eMIMS November 2018
Please be informed of a critical correction in the dosage section of Panadol (Children) Liquid Formulations.

The affected formulations are:

  • Panadol (Children) 1 month - 2 years Colourfree Baby Drops
    • Ages and dose volumes
  • Panadol (Children) 5 - 12 years Elixir
    • Ages and dose volumes

Due to the possible risk of overdosage with paracetamol and associated serious risk of hepatotoxicity, for the product Panadol (Children) Liquid Formulations, it is recommended to dose only by bodyweight (10-15 mg/kg every 4-6 hrs up to max 4 times/day if needed).

A copy of the corrected listing can be seen here.

This listing will be corrected in the December 2018 issue of eMIMS Classic. There may be other distributions of the MIMS information where this correction won't be seen immediately.

Errata eMIMS August 2018
A small number of indicator images were missing from the distribution DVD. These can be restored by running the Update for September 2018.

PBS Erratum July 2018
The PBS issued an erratum containing the revised pricing of trastuzumab, glatiramer acetate and interferon beta 1-a. There are also small increases to the Dispensed Price Maximum Quantity price which are due to the annual indexation of the Administration, Handling and Infrastructure fee. A copy of the Erratum can be seen here.
