Take care with Buccolam syringes
Pharmacists have been reminded to speak to parents and carers about carefully inspecting Buccolam pre-filled plastic syringes before giving the medicine.
Buccolam is an epilepsy medicine available in pre-filled oral syringes. A defect with some syringes means that the translucent (white) tip-cap can sometimes remain attachedÂ to the syringe after the red capÂ has been taken off, becoming a choking hazard. If you think the tip-cap is in the patientâ€™s mouth, do not attempt to remove it. Instead, turn the patient onto their side (recovery position) and make sure they spit it out when they stop fitting.Â
