Talk:WHO Model List of Essential Medicines
|WikiProject Medicine||(Rated List-class, Mid-importance)|
Just a note that the heading numbers generated for the sections matches that in the 14th edition. So, if you add, move, or remove headings then things won't match. Cburnett 18:07, 1 July 2007 (UTC)
What do the crosses mean?
I forget what the real name for that symbol is, but the little cross/t next to some medicines would indicate that they all belong to some group, but what that group *is* is not defined... Kailey elise (talk) 20:01, 10 January 2010 (UTC)
- Can somebody please fix the problem that Kailey was referring to? It's been seven months and the problem still hasn't been fixed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 04:43, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
- The cross is defined in the lead paragraph (and has been for a while): "A † indicates the medicine is a complementary item". I agree that it's not an obvious place for it. Perhaps a footnote type scheme would be better. I've submitted my attempt. This still leaves open the question of *which* medicine each one is complementary for, however. -- 18.104.22.168 (talk) 19:04, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
- Because its not on this page. The Hista moth is not an Essential Medicine. If you are referring to histamines, I dont think that this is ever given as a medication, as our bodies produce them naturally, so it would not be an Essential Medicine.
