Anticoagulant Clexane batches are recalled by MHRA

The UK Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) advises patients to check if they have certain batches of the prescription-only medicine Clexane as they are being recalled.

As a precautionary measure, patients taking certain types of the prescription-only medicine Clexane for blood clots are asked to check to see if they have products from batches of medicines which are being recalled.

If patients have any of these affected products, they should continue taking their medicines and contact their GP practice to arrange a new prescription. Once they have a new prescription, patients should return the affected batches to their pharmacist. 

Patients can check their medicines by looking for the affected batch numbers on B & S Healthcare labelled packs. The affected medicines are in the original Italian packaging with the UK manufacturer’s, B & S Healthcare, label. This recall relates only to B & S Healthcare labelled products.

To check if you medication is affected, please visit the B & S Healthcare website and download the information pack.
