THE Therapeutic Drugs
Administration has issued a Class
III recall notice for Drixine
Paediatric Decongestant Nasal
Drops 0.25mg/mL, 15mL.
The recall also applies to Drixin
Metered Pump Decongestant Nasal
Spray & Refill 0.5mg/mL 15 mL,
with all existing batches affected.
Sponsor Schering-Plough said
that a stability issue had arisen due
to closures on some bottles being
inadequately tightened to ensure
an effective seal.
“The evaporation of liquid
components under stablity testing
conditions is resulting in higher
concentrations of active ingredient
and preservative in the products,”
the recall notice said.The above article was sent to subscribers in Pharmacy Daily's issue from 25 Jan 11 To see the full newsletter, see the embedded issue below or CLICK HERE to download Pharmacy Daily from 25 Jan 11
