SUB-TYPE: COMPANY-LED RECALL

Company Led Recall - Dermaved Sensitive Cream (Unlicensed Medicine)

Dermaved is recalling the above product from patients due to presence of clobetasol propionate (0.001% w/w). This product is supplied by Dermaved online.

 

The company’s investigation is on-going. Remaining stock of the above product should be returned to the company directly.

 

Clobetasol propionate is a strong steroid and it is an active ingredient in Prescription Only Medicines used for the treatment skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Creams containing steroids should be used sparingly and as directed by the prescriber.

 

Although the presence of clobetasol propionate in this product is low, patients are advised to stop using the cream immediately, particularly pregnant and breastfeeding women, babies and young children.

 

There have been infrequent cases of skin reactions after stopping the use of creams containing steroids. Patients are advised to consult a doctor if their skin worsens within 2 weeks of stopping this cream or if they experience any side-effects from using this product. Suspected side effects should also be reported via the Yellow Card Scheme.

SUB-TYPE: CLASS 4 CAUTION IN USE

Class 4 Drug (Caution in use) - Benylin Chesty Coughs Original and Benylin Chesty Coughs Non-Drowsy

McNeil Products Limited have identified an error relating to the stated alcohol content for batches of Benylin Chesty Coughs Original (P) and Benylin Chesty Coughs Non-Drowsy (GSL) whereby the product labels understate the ethanol values. The products comply with the defined specifications, including ethanol content and, other than the incorrect ethanol content, all other label information is correct. However, the amount of ethanol contained within the products is low and hence the related on-pack safety warning, which reads “The small amount of alcohol in this medicine will not have any noticeable effects.”, is correct.
