The new MIMS table is designed to help primary care professionals quickly prescribe or recommend treatments for women who are pregnant.
Collating advice from authoritative bodies such as NICE, CKS, the Royal College of Obstericians and Gynaecologists, and BUMPS, the table lists first- and subsequent-line treatment options for:
- minor ailments - including constipation, dyspepsia and rhinitis
- infections - eg, sinusitis, UTI and vaginal candidiasis
- chronic conditions - such as anxiety and depression, asthma, and migraine.
Drug entries are linked to the full MIMS entries for more detailed prescribing information, and advice on recommended non-pharmacological interventions such as lifestyle changes and psychological therapies is also included where relevant.
