Do the MHRA just not give a toss about children

This from the Food Commission. Bupa.co.uk

Food additives linked to hyperactivity are still being used in children's medicines, a new survey by The Food Commission has found.

The Food Commission looked at 70 prescription and over-the-counter medicines for children, including painkillers (paracetamol and ibuprofen), antibiotics (amoxicillin and erythromycin) and throat syrups (linctus).

They found that 40 percent of these medicines contained at least one of the seven food additives linked to hyperactivity in children. These seven additives are currently under review by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) following a study on their effect on children's behaviour

Also, the additives were found in 20 percent of the medicines aimed at children under the age of three, even though they have already been banned from food and drink for children of this age

You want to hear what a 'spokesperson' for the MHRA said?

"It's important to remember that the quantities of additives used in medicines are not as high as those used in foods. Also, children don't consume medicines they way they consume food - they should only be taking the necessary dose for a short period of time. Preservatives and other additives play a vital role in medicines - many couldn't be produced, stored or administered without them."

He continued, "Parents and carers should read the patient information leaflets that accompany their child's medicine. This will contain details of the additives included and any known side-effects. If they are still concerned, they should talk to their pharmacist or GP."

Fiddy Rant:

The Food Commission looked at 70 prescription and over-the-counter medicines for children you incompetent fools!

Read the patient information leaflets? Would this be the same patient information leaflets that came accompanied with packets of Seroxat stating you could not get addicted?

When are you going to listen to the patients and patient support groups?

Oh, nice touch at the end of the statement: ...'If they are still concerned, they should talk to their pharmacist or GP.'

Thus leaving the MHRA in the clear eh?

Yet another failure in this so-called regulatory system.

Additives cause hyperactivity - fact

How do GP's treat hyperactivity?

Drugs, made by the very same people who fund the MHRA

Who needs Pharmaceutical Drug Reps when you have an agency doing their jobs for them?

Shocking, truly shocking!
