Benzamycin discontinued

Schwarz Pharma has discontinued Benzamycin gel (benzoyl peroxide 5%/erythromycin 3%), due to a variety of manufacturing and regulatory issues.

The gel licensed for the topical treatment of acne, was temporarily unavailable for some time as the company was unable to guarantee a regular and consistent supply. A limited amount of Benzamycin may be available through several wholesalers. However, once the stock is exhausted there will be no further supplies.
