What are Specials
A Special also known as a personalised medicine, is an unlicensed medicine prescribed to meet the individual clinical need of a patient when a suitable licensed medicine is not available.
For specific patient need
It all starts with a problem: a patient who can’t tolerate a standard dose; a patient that needs a different concentration or strength; a patient who has an allergic reaction to common drug excipients; a patient with dysphagia or swallowing difficulties; a much-needed drug that’s in short supply or discontinued, a drug that is not yet licenced or only licensed in another country. For whatever reason a personalised medicine can provide a solution.
