As many of you know, there has recently been a recall of 2 batches of deflazacort. The recall is specific to deflazacort 30mg, (Marketing Authorisation Holder: Sandoz) and was recently issued by the Spanish Agency of Medicine. The batches that are affected and subject to the recall notification are J021 (expiry 30/06/2017) and J028 (expiry 30/09/2017).

Many families order deflazacort from Masters Marketing. Recent conversations with Masters indicate that, through no fault of their own, Masters is having some difficulty replenishing their deflazacort stock. This is causing delayed shipments to patients/parents. Masters has promised to keep everyone up to date with their progress in accessing medication.

Some parents have asked about alternative resources for deflazacort. Pharmaworld Professional International Pharmacy, located in Zurich, Switzerland, has been used by many US parents, and may be a viable alternative. While PPMD is not endorsing Pharmaworld, or any other online pharmacy, we would like you to know your options. Below is their contact information, as well as information regarding ordering, cost, etc.

From Pharmaworld:

All orders must include medical prescription, sent by fax, e-mail or regular mail.
Product delivered is brand name CALCORT (deflazacort), labeled in German/French language.
All prices/charges are in Swiss Francs (CHF) .
Please visit to order. Read the DISCLAIMER carefully. Pharmaworld does not have any influence in getting the medicine through US customs, but usually a 3 month supply along with a valid medical prescription is allowed.

I had lousy experience with PharmaWorld and went back to Masters. After uploading all my information on the web site, I was prompted to email an image of the prescription. Ok, that was easy.

But then, they asked me to provide my credit card information through email. Can anyone say Identity Theft?

It seems to me PharmaWorld is not terribly interested in doing business over the internet if this is how they operate. Nobody should EVER share such information by email.
