An error in the dosing information of Telfast Oral Liquid in Telfast CMI has been identified in the MIMS October data release.

Please find eTG’s position on the PBS:
Therapeutic Guidelines position on the TGA changes is that we will start work on the changes at the earliest beginning late 2017, this is well within the 4 years allowed by the TGA.
Please find AMH position on the PBS:
From July 2016, in both AMH and AMH Children’s Dosing Companion (CDC) online products, users are able to search using all the ‘new’ names as well as the ‘old’ names from the TGA’s lists that are included in AMH. For your information, this function was previously in AMH, and most of the ‘new’ names were already included. Synonyms have been part of AMH content for many years, and early this year we implemented the same feature in the CDC.
Additionally, we advised users about the name changes in the key changes section of AMH and provided a link to this section on the homepage of the online products. I have attached pictures of the relevant pages from AMH online, which is mirrored in the CDC.
