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.
