Bristol Myers Squibb advises that the packaging for Revlimid® and Pomalyst® has been updated as shown in the examples below.
In order to minimise selection errors, the new packaging more clearly distinguishes between the different strengths and pack sizes of these medicines.
It is estimated that distribution of stock with the new packaging will commence shortly. Please be aware that old and new packaging may be available as packs containing the current artwork will continue to be distributed until supply is exhausted. Bristol Myers Squibb do not anticipate any supply interruptions during this changeover period.
Retain this notice in a prominent position, including in other related business units for one month. Report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.
Should you require further information regarding this matter, please contact Bristol Myers Squibb on 1800 235 436 or your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies.
