We have been in contact with Pfizer who have advised the CGF that the previously named ‘Solu-Cortef’ hydrocortisone injection has been re-named.
The previously named Solu-Cortef has been de-branded and will now be known as it’s generic name, ‘Hydrocortisone Sodium Succinate 100MG Powder for Solution for Injection or Infusion 1X2ML (vial with Diluent)’.
The generic version is identical to the branded version, Solu-Cortef, in terms of formulation and presentation. Whilst existing supplies are distributed and used there may still be ‘Solu-Cortef in supply. However, over time this branded version will be replaced by Hydrocortisone Sodium Succinate 100MG Powder for Solution for Injection or Infusion 1X2ML (vial with Diluent).
