Anon Staff asked 2 years ago

As a pharmacist I have been asked about Sclerovein 0.5%. I would like to know if a Dr can use a vial of Sclerovein for several injections to one patient or should a fresh vial be used each time a needle is used to extract contents from the vial?
Thanks

Although Sclerovein is purchased in multi-dose bottles or vials, the SPC states that they are for single patient use only so they can extract several doses from a bottle or vial but cannot use the product on other patients.
