The Drug Tariffs relating to specials medicines has been updated for the February edition. 

Information put out by specials manufacturers Quantum Pharmaceutical and IPS Specials indicates two new items have been added to Part VIIIB of the Drug Tariff for England and Wales:

  • theophylline 50mg/5ml oral solution;
  • theophylline 50mg/5ml oral suspension.

No products were removed, meaning that there are 254 products currently listed. Of these, 55 minimum volume prices have gone up, while 197 minimum volume prices have gone down.

In Scotland, there has been one deletion from Part 7S of the Scottish Drug Tariff, meaning the list comprises 66 products.

The next Drug Tariff Specials updates are expected for May 1.
