Pulvinal inhalers discontinued

Pulvinal Beclometasone and Pulvinal Salbutamol dry powder inhalers have been discontinued following a decline in demand.

Stocks of Pulvinal Beclometasone 100, 200 and 400 microgram are expected to run out by the end of 2015. A limited supply of Pulvinal Salbutamol will be available until the middle of January 2016.
