Whether you use a medication to prevent or cure, it is important that you use the right medicine in the right way. To help you with this, there is a medication package insert. This leaflet contains important information about the medicine, for example what the medicine is for, how you should use the medicine and what ingredients the medicine contains. The manufacturer provides this information to prevent incorrect and unsafe use. The patient information leaflet is then checked by the Medicines Evaluation Board (MEB) and adjusted if necessary.

The information in the leaflet is also available for each medicine that is part of the Cradle to Grave artwork. Below you will discover which medicines the sample patients used, why and what the effect of these drugs is.
