The Ministry of Health and Prevention has just given out a circular concerning a pediatric oral suspension medicine.
According to this issue, batch number 0621 of Profinal 100mg/5mL, size 110mL, has been taken out from the shelves of UAE’s pharmacies.
The product, manufactured by Gulf Pharmaceutical Industries, Julphar, did not convene UAE health standards and rules.
All packages from the abovementioned batch should be returned to the supplier and taken off the shelves of pharmacies and medical establishments in the public and private sector.
Julphar stated that this consignment was only accessible in the UAE and Saudi Arabia market and no other batches have been impacted.
“Julphar has taken out a consignment of Profinal 100mg / 5 ml suspension, as per instruction from UAE MoH. The health and safety of our customers and patients are always our uppermost priority. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us,” the company said in a statement.
Profinal Suspension is utilized to ease mild to moderate pain from a muscle ache, headache, toothache, common cold, or a backache. It can also be used in trivial injuries such as sprains and strains.
