EPIMAX® name change and label update

Some name changes affecting part of the EPIMAX® emollient range came into effect in the March issue of the Drug Tariff. The products will occupy a dual listing on the drug tariff up until February 2021 such that prescriptions dispensed under both the new and old name can be reimbursed.

The update affects the following three products:

EPIMAX® Original Cream (previously Epimax Cream)
EPIMAX® ExCetra Cream (previously ExCetra Cream)
EPIMAX® Isomol Gel (previously Isomol Gel)

We would also like to reassure you that, despite the new names and associated change in appearance of the labels, the products themselves remain unchanged and offer the same significant cost-savings compared with similar originator brands.
