Search methods

There are three different ways to search for products and their prices. The one you choose to use will depend on your particular situation.

Name search
Here you can enter the first few letters of a product name or the complete name, and you will get back results listing all products whose name is, or begins with, your entry.

For instance, entering “ibu” or “ibuprofen” will yield the same results. Entering “phen” will yield information on both “phenytoin” and “phenobarbital.”

Alphabetical search
This is a useful method when you are uncertain as to the exact spelling of the product you wish to find, but know the first letter.

For example, if you were looking for “piperazine,” you might be uncertain as to its complete and accurate spelling. In this case, you can click on the letter “P” which will bring you to the page listing all products  beginning with “P.” Simply scroll down this list until you find the right name and click on it. This will bring you to the full information page for that product.

Therapeutic category search
This method is helpful if you know into which therapeutic category, based the WHO EML therapeutic categories or ATC codes, the product you wish to find falls. “Antidotes and other substances used in poisonings” and “Hormones, other endocrine medicines, and contraceptives” are examples of the therapeutic categories that may be searched for available products.

Go to the search page and scroll down the list of categories and click on the one which best describes the product you are looking for.
