The following information is intended for healthcare professionals
Wockhardt UK has many years of experience producing pain management
products. Our portfolio contains a wide range of analgesics that
can be grouped into three major categories as follows:
Wockhardt UK offers a comprehensive range of injectable diamorphine
presentations. During 2005, the only other supplier to the UK
market has been unable to manufacture diamorphine, leading to
a chronic shortage of this important product.
In response, we have been working hard to alleviate the market
shortfall by directing capacity to additional diamorphine production.
To ensure that all available stocks are distributed as effectively
as possible, we are continuing to work closely with the Department
of Health (DoH).
Morphine, & Methadone
Wockhardt UK also produces morphine, and methadone in
injectable form. Given the current diamorphine shortage the DoH
has been sourcing additional stocks of alternative analgesics
such as morphine. We have responded by significantly increasing
our morphine output.
Well-established products such as paracetamol, ibuprofen and
naproxen are included within our pain management range.
Finally, Wockhardt UK produces an ergotamine-based
used in the management of migraine.
