Correction of dose of Ironorm? Drops in BNF for Children

The dose of Ironorm? Drops for the treatment of iron deficiency anaemia has been updated in the BNF for Children digital products.

The dose incorrectly stated a maximum volume per dose of 8mL, instead of a maximum volume per day of 8mL.

The correct dose is as follows:

This updated dose will be present in the October monthly update for all digital products of BNF for Children.
