Medicines Classification Committee 55th agenda

By

We provided additional support for the reclassification of oral contraceptives, strongly supported the reclassification of adapalene to enable pharmacists to provide a first line acne treatment, strongly supported of the change in classification wording of many medicines available over-the-counter to allow these medicines to be repackaged by pharmacists. Raised concerns regarding the change in classification wording of benzydamine and lignocaine, as this would see an increased number of products to treat the symptoms of a sore throat to be available through general sale. Strongly opposed the proposal to allow loratadine to be available in larger pack sizes through general sale, and opposed the reclassification albendazole to a Pharmacy-Only Medicine.
