Buccal Midazolam- new licensed preparation (Buccolam®)

 In New Product, Pharmacy Information, Simplifying Product Supply

Buccal midazolam is recommended for rapid tranquillisation by The Maudsley Prescribing Guidelines in a dose of 10mg to 20mg, but a licensed product was not available in the UK until the launch of Buccolam®.

This is available in pre-filled colour-coded oral syringes (2.5mg, 5mg, 7.5mg and 10mg).

Buccolam® is currently licensed for paediatric seizures (3 months to 18 years).

The MHRA have provided guidance on switching from unlicensed versions of buccal midazolam.
