Tagged: MHRA alert


Lucis Pharma Ltd has issued an alert for two batches of Oxycodone Hydrochloride 10mg/ml oral solution.

The affected batches are:

Batch numberExpiry datePack sizeFirst distributed
21050004November 2023120mL Bottle15/07/2021
22080005February 2025120mL Bottle13/10/2022

The alert relates to the rear side of the outer packaging for these lines. The text incorrectly states that: ‘Each 1ml of oxycodone hydrochloride oral solution contains 1mg of oxycodone hydrochloride.’

The correct text should state: ‘Each 1ml of oxycodone hydrochloride oral solution contains 10mg of oxycodone hydrochloride.’

The strength of the product is printed correctly on all other sides of the outer packaging, including the label on the bottle.

Affected batches are not being recalled. Patients should be referred to the correct information stated on the bottle label and in the Patient Information Leaflet inserted in the pack.
