Supplies of Pred-Forte 10ml eye drops to cease through 2017


Pharmacists will see an increase in the supply of Pred-Forte 5ml steroid eye drops over March, but the 10ml measure will no longer be available, manufacturer Allergan has announced.

“Manufacturing constraints" mean the 10ml option "will cease to be available in the UK through 2017", it said.

However, Allergan said it is “committed” to the continued supply of Pred-Forte and will invest to grow its production capacity of ocular steroids.

While the 5ml option has been subject to "restricted and intermittent" supply, there will now be a "significant increase", it added.

Supplies of FML 5ml and 10ml steroid eye drops will also increase from April 1.
