Nytol Liquid Caramel Flavour 10mg/5ml oral solution

A direct healthcare professional communication has been issused for Nytol Liquid Caramel Flavour 10mg/5ml oral solution. The communication provides the following information:

Diphenhydramine should not be used to sedate a child due to the possibility of respiratory depression, lethargy, sleep apnoea and cardiorespiratory arrest.

Nytol Liquid Caramel Flavour 10mg/5ml oral solution is now indicated only as a sleep aid for adults and should no longer be used in children or adults as an antihistamine.

The previous indication as an antihistamine and corresponding dosing information have been removed for newly produced products and new corresponding advice has been added to the packaging.

Current stock coming to pharmacies has been reworked to include an updated carton and leaflet; the existing label has been partially over-stickered with the updated dosing information.
