Two COCs discontinued

According to a report on the National Electronic Library for Medicines Minulet® and Tri-Minulet® have been discontinued with immediate effect.

Both products have been in short supply for some time and the decision has now been made to cease production entirely due to low demand and the availability of alternative treatments.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of these discontinuations and ensure that any remaining prescriptions and change to alternative treatments.
