General leaflet Unlicensed medicines

Most medicines used in the UK have a licence that says exactly how the medicine should be used. However, this licence may not include use in children, or in a particular illness or condition. 

This leaflet explains what we mean by the unlicensed use of a medicine, why the use of many medicines in children is unlicensed, and when it is considered safe and acceptable to use unlicensed medicines.
