British health authorities issue warning after drugs mix-up

London (CNN) -- British health authorities on Friday urged vigilance after packages of an over-the-counter painkiller were found to contain antipsychotic drugs.

The antipsychotic Seroquel XL was inside packets of the painkiller Nurofen Plus, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency warned.

Three defective packets have been found so far, all in pharmacies in south London, but more than 16,000 more could potentially be affected, the agency said.

Nurofen Plus, made by Reckitt Benckiser, can be bought without a prescription and has silver and black packaging. It is used for short-term relief of acute pain and contains codeine.

The Seroquel XL 50mg tablets, manufactured by AstraZeneca, are prescription only and used to treat such illnesses as schizophrenia, mania and bipolar depression.


[Below are the BATCHES identified]

Three batches of Nurofen Plus are affected by the alert, the MHRA said.

They are batch numbers 13JJ, expiry date 03/2014; 57JJ, expiry date 05/2014; and 49JJ, expiry date 05/2014.
