- Just to confirm what has gone before, the British National Formulary
(together with MIMS the standard shorter drugs reference for medical
practitioners) notes under the heading 'patient packs':
''The patient information leaflet also includes details of all inactive
ingredients in the medicine''
At the next level of information comes the 'manufacturer's data sheet', in
which one expects to find more complex and, hopefully, accurate terminology.
Interesting that the PIL's don't give the corresponding E numbers, referring
to 'Green S' rather than E142, and so on.
Your very good health
