Why it matters: The MHRA has a clear safety direction advising that patients taking Esmya (ulipristal acetate) for uterine fibroids should STOP their treatment IMMEDIATELY.
Any prescribing on this measure should prompt investigation to identify patients and ensure the treatment is stopped and followup blood tests arranged.
Please note that this is an experimental measure to support a new type of alert. We would be grateful for any feedback at [email protected].
