List of Interchangeable Medicines

The role of the HPRA under the Health (Pricing and Supply of Medical Goods) Act 2013 is to establish, publish and maintain a list of interchangeable medicines on our website. Under this legislation, interchangeable medicines are defined as those medicines that (1) contain the same active ingredient in the same strength, (2) are in the same pharmaceutical form, and (3) have the same route of administration.

Search for groups of interchangeable medicines by entering the trade name (brand name) of a medicine or an active substance below.

To get the most relevant results, you will also need to confirm the strength of the medicine and whether it is a tablet, capsule or some other pharmaceutical form.
