    Australia is one of the few countries in the world that not only regulates prescription and pharmacy medicines but also regulates ‘complementary medicines’ as therapeutic goods.
    • Before you buy medicines in Australia, check that the label has the letters AUST L or AUST R followed by a number. This indicates that the product has been approved for supply in Australia. You can confirm the number by checking the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods.
    • Medicines with AUST L on the label are only to be used for managing minor conditions. They must not claim they are for treatment, prevention or cure of serious medical conditions or disorders.
