Drug Prescribing in Dentistry – Update

This update to SDCEP’s  Drug Prescribing For Dentistry’ 3rd Edition, includes information on amendments to the latest edition of the British National Formulary (BNF 73) which was published in March 2017, including changes to the recommended adult dose of metronidazole.  The circumstances in which it is appropriate to prescribe metronidazole are described within the ‘Drug Prescribing For Dentistry’ guidance.  These remain unchanged and local measures should be used to manage patients in the first instance.

A copy of the update can be downloaded from the SDCEP Prescribing page
