Muscat: Ministry of Health has issued a circular to recall and suspend the dispensation of “Profinal”, manufactured by the Gulf Pharmaceutical Industries (Julphar).

The ministry MOH asked people too stop using the medicine and “to see a physician to prescribe an alternative medicine.” Profinal Suspension is a pediatric pain-reliving, fever-lowering, and anti-inflammatory oral medicine.

In a statement, MOH said: “The withdrawn was due to noncompliance to the approved specifications concerning the limit of active ingredient and the presence of undissolved depositions accumulated on the bottle the product, which does not dissolve by shaking. Therefore, the local agent of the manufacturer has been notified to arrange the recall of the product's batches from all private and public health care institutions, noting that the same decision was made in other Gulf countries including its country of origin."
