NEW Product Low Dose Lorazepam 0.5mg

BY GREG BULL  |  POSTED IN GENERAL NEWS

Lorazepam is now available in the new strength of 500 microgram tablets as a pack of 28 tablets. 

Listed in the Drug Tariff as a Category C item, your reimbursement for dispensing this item will be the manufacturer price of £10.00 per pack dispensed. 

This is good news for both prescribers and patients where the clinical decision has been made that the patient needs a 500microgram dose, there will no longer be any reason to dispense a 1mg tablet and ask the patient to split the tablet themselves. 

The product is currently available from MedRx Pharmaceuticals. 

Discounts for dispensing doctors are available from MedRx contact them directly general@med-rx.co.uk to find out more.
