Drug alert: Priadel 400mg prolonged release tablets

An error in the packaging of Priadel 400mg prolonged release tabletsdistributed since 29 October 2008 has been identified by Sanofi-aventis

An error in the packaging of Priadel 400mg prolonged release tablets distributed since 29 October 2008 has been identified by Sanofi-aventis.

On the rear panel of the packaging, above the area designated for the dispensing label, the strength is incorrectly displayed as 200mg. All other information printed on the carton, blister foil, summary of product characteristics and product information leaflets is correct.

Affected stock will continue to be distributed over the next few months, with corrected stock unlikely to be supplied until March 2009.

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency recommends that, until corrected stock is available, the dispensing label is placed so that the error is obscured in order to avoid patient confusion.
