Precautions for Use

The formulations with ratio 8:1 (DORAAMOC1S6 and DORAAMOC56T) became NST due to supply issue. This ratio was previously reserved to French-speaking countries. Nevertheless, the ratio 7:1 can now be imported in French and/or English-speaking countries.

Ratios 7:1 and 8:1 are therapeutically equivalent.
