HA appeals not take digestive drug Enzyplex
The following is issued on behalf of the Hospital Authority:

     Following the announcement by the Department of Health (DH) to endorse the supplier of a digestive drug "Enzyplex" to recall the drug due to quality issue, the Hospital Authority (HA) spokesperson today (June 26) appealed to the patients of public hospitals not to take the drugs prescribed to them earlier.

     The Authority has earlier ceased to dispense "Enzyplex" in all public hospitals on June 22 due to the suspected monascus contamination. According to the record, there are currently around 4 000 patients in public hospitals being prescribed with the drug. HA will start calling the patients to remind them not to take the drug concerned as a precautionary measure. Patients should seek medical advice for their signs of digestive disorder or approach healthcare staff for any related queries.
