DRUG ALERT – Emerade Injection

If you have been prescribed with an Emerade Auto-Injector in the past year please note that it has recently been brought to our attention that a caution notice has been issued for this medication that we wish to inform you about.

A potential defect has been found with Emerade that could cause the product to fail to deliver a dose of adrenaline from the syringe due to a blockage of the needle.

The Emerade Auto-Injectors are not been recalled but we have been asked to ensure that you have the most up to date advice regarding the use of this item.

We have attached an advice sheet which should always be followed when using adrenaline auto-injectors.
