Statement Regarding the Withdrawal of Dialon
On Monday, MOHAP issued a circular to medical zones, hospitals and pharmacies to withdraw diabetes medicine, Dialon 500mg, due to an issue with its solubility with the reference product. Dialon is the first-line medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and contains the active ingredient Metformin Hydrochloride. The 850mg and 1000mg strengths of Dialon are still available in the UAE and are not affected by the withdrawal.
