Be MedWise

Be MedWise is a public education initiative by the National Council on Patient Information and Education (NCPIE) – a nonprofit coalition of over 125 consumer, government, patient advocacy and public health organizations. NCPIE serves as a trusted source of reliable information about the proper use of medicines, and Be MedWise seeks to promote a better understanding that over-the-counter (OTC) drug products are serious medicines and must be taken with care.

National Council on Patient Information and Education (NCPIE)

Formed in 1982, NCPIE is a non-profit coalition working to improve health professional - patient communicatioln about the safe, appropriate use of medicines. However, NCPIE does not supervise or endorse the activities of any group or professional. Discussion and action concerning medicines are solely the responsibility of patients and their healthcare professionals, and not NCPIE.
