Online Indian drug dictionary – Indian Pharmacopeia

By | April 24, 2007

Note: I am not a pharma student to answer your complex pharmaceutical questions.  Please do not ask me to provide some brands data names in excel sheet or the copy of electronic drug reference.  Please go to the above site and purchase it.  Whatever I can provide, I have provided here.  Need more? Then, log into MedCLIK and explore.  Thanks in advance!

When I was in medical transcription training, we were provided with Quick Look Drug Reference for medicine search and its dosage details.  I was surprised to see its features.  It was extensive with all the drug names, brand and generic names, therapeutic category, usage, dose, and dosage forms.  We learned that a generic drug can be sold with different brand names produced by different companies.  For example: aspirin is a generic drug (original formula), which is available under brand names of Ascriptin, Bayer Aspirin, Easprin, Ecotrin, Halfprin, ZORprin, etc (in USA).

After looking at this electronic drug reference for American drugs, I thought that there will be an Indian electronic drug reference.  I searched a lot over the net for nearly one month, but was unable to find it. After passing through class training and on-job training, I was put on regular roles and started searching again.  While searching the Indian Medical Association website, I came to know about the site MedCLIK, which provides an online drug reference for Indian medicines.

Go to http://www.medclik.com/medcliklan/Registration.aspx and fill out the simple form to register with your e-mail address.  Then, you will receive confirmation in your e-mail account.  Activate it and you are done.  Go to login page at http://www.medclik.com/medcliklan/Login.aspx and login.

In MedCLIK, besides the above information, they also indicate the manufacturers’ name and price.  I think it is very helpful.  If you know a brand, just key in and you can find the generic name of the drug and the list of brands available for that with price and company information.

You can see the below screenshot I have taken for brand search for “gentamicin,” an eye drops preparation.

    The sign up for Medclick doesn’t work. I tried it with 2 different emails and gave phone number and it never makes an account, always says username not valid, no confirmation is sent to email or phone number. How to do it?

    Hi Naveen,

    I have registered with medclick. I tried clicking the menu options like drug search (including generic, indexwise etc), diseases, prices etc. But, nothing is happening. The same window (as the window appears in Home) is appearing again and again. There is no search box.

    How to find out or browse the information? Please help me.

      As far as I know, there is no remedy for it other than keeping the blood sugars at desired level. Consult a renowned ayurvedic practitioner in your area to see what remedies they can offer.

    Great site and info.
    I had a query regarding purchasing the MDR database, on the site it says you provide the database in different formats, could let me know if I wanted it in the form a database – which database will it be in (mysql, ms sql, oracle etc..) and will I be getting the db to install locally. And I believe the price is 1500 for a single user license.

    The other is if I want get api access which I want to integrate in another application, how do I go about getting that setup and what are the pricing options for that.

      Sorry! I don’t know. If you come across one, let me know. Google the words “weight gain diet” and see if you find a plan that suits you.

    Hi, I’m a pharmacy student.
    Could you find for me some information about topotecan = hycamtin (pure chemical compound, not from human plasma) monography, especialy quantative & qualitative methods which may be in indian pharmacopoeia. I can’t get this pharmacopoeia anywhere in my country (Poland) and those informations are very important to me.
    Thank you for your help :)
