Drug Safety Information – Phenergan Elixir

MHRA has just posted this Drug Safety Information with respect to Phenergan Elixir PL 04425/0630, 100ml packs. The labelling may “cause confusion to diabetic patients”. This relates to the technical distinction between hydrogenated glucose (which is not considered as sugar and therefore does not carry the risks of dental caries but nonetheless not suitable for diabetics) and others such as sucrose, glucose or fructose (which are classified as sugars, which can cause dental caries and also unsuitable for diabetics).

The statement “sugar-free” is printed on the front panel and one side panel of the carton and the warning “not suitable for diabetics” is printed on the other side panel of the carton.
