Correction of errors in BNF
Two dosing errors have been spotted in the British National Formulary (BNF) 70 and BNF for Children (BNFC) 2015–2016. In the printed version of BNF 70, the dosage information for oral clindamycin is incorrect, it should say the maximum dose is 450mg every six hours. In the printed BNF 70 and BNFC 2015–2016, there is an error related to pyrimethamine, the dosing schedule related to its use in congenital toxoplasmosis should be labelled “neonate”, not adult. These errors will be corrected in the updated versions of the BNF and BNFC.
