MHRA advice on amphotericin B

The MHRA has reminded healthcare professionals that the use of lipid-based and non-lipid-based formulations of amphotericin B is not interchangeable.

They have issued the following advice:

  • For Fungizone, do not exceed a total daily dose of 1.5mg/kg.
  • To prevent inadvertent overdose, verify the product name and dose before administration, especially if the dose prescribed exceeds 1.5mg/kg.
