For members taking Calcichew - government drug alert
One batch apparently - check it isn't yours.
Pete doesn’t use calcichew but thank you for that information. Xxxx
Thank you so much for this 02. I have one bottle with no box or patient leaflet. Will have to check the other box.
Distributed to pharmacy level since 15 Nov 2017
Batch No. 11372123
Expiry date May 2019
Brief description of the problem
The above batch is being recalled because the product has been found to contain traces of a non-approved excipient (a Patchouli-like oil) which has inadvertently been added to the lemon flavouring used in the manufacture of the tablets. Takeda has no reason to believe that the non-approved substance poses a significant risk to public health.
Thank you Jean, I don't take them but Sharon does, her's are a different batch # though.
I don't take it any more but knew many here would do.
Having spent nearly 3 years taking drugs which as far as I am concern did little or nothing to improve...
I have the opportunity now to go onto a drug to help with IPF. My choices are Nintedanib or Esbriet (pirfenidone)...
is a benefit not a benefit you can't have it all your own way Lyn
