Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - The health ministry in the United Arab Emirates has issued a decision withdrawing a number of pharmaceutical products manufactured by Julphar, the Gulf Pharmaceutical Industries PSC, after being found non-compliant with the approved specifications.

The ministryinstructed all pharmacies to stop dispensing these products and return them to the supplier, urging all health care practitioners and community members to refrain from using such products if they already in their possession.

The ministry listed the medicines voluntarily recalled as forte table, Julmentin 375mg tablet Julmentin which is used for treating bacterial infections and lungs, ears and sinuses infections, in addition to Mucolyte syrup, which is prescribed for mucous secretions, Butalin 2 and 4 mg tablet for bronchospasm, asthma and pulmonary embolism, and Lipigard 10mg tablet prescribed for treating cholesterol as well as Scopinal syrup, which is used for colon disorders, Supraproct-S supp which is prescribed for haemorrhoids and rashes, and Gupisone 20 mg tablet which is used for allergies.

"The manufacturer has already been contacted and instructed to withdraw all batches of "Profinal", which is analgesics, anti inflammatories and antipyretics in children, due to non-conformity with the approved specifications in terms of the amount of the active substance, in addition to the existence of insoluble deposits on the top of the product's bottle wall that does not dissolve by shaking," the ministry clarified.

The ministry stated that the decision to voluntarily withdraw and suspend some pharmaceutical products was no more than a precautionary measure to ensure the health and safety of patients.

It also came as part of periodic tests carried out on random products that are examined at the ministry’s national reference laboratory to support the drug system in the country and monitor the quality of medicines being used.

"We are closely following up on the withdrawal process and constantly coordinating with various international, regional and local pharmaceutical authorities and companies to keep abreast of any developments related to drug warnings," the ministry said, affirming that the health and safety of the public is a top priority.
