HCdrugs.ca is an unofficial database of Health Canada approved indications for pharmaceutical medications sold in Canada. Many medications are prescribed off-label in Canada, but clinicians may not be aware that what they are prescribing is in fact off-label. This website aims to provide a quick reference for clinicians to check whether a medication recieved Health Canada approval, and have informed consent discussions with their patients when off-label use occurs. The list currently only includes psychiatric and some neurologic medications. The data from this website is pulled from Health Canada's Drug Product Database (DPD).
