Drug Safety Update - October 2008

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has published Drug Safety Update for October 2008 (PDF).

This issue provides a safety update for ergot-derived dopamine agonists and antibiotics in premature labour. There is also a hot topic discussion regarding the risk of illicit use with decongestants and a stop press covering the narrow therapeutic index of theophylline and its potential for misuse.

Action: Clinicians will find this publication to be a useful review of current issues in drug safety.
