Deferiprone Lipomed 500 mg film-coated tablets
4.1 Therapeutic indications
Deferiprone Lipomed monotherapy is indicated for the treatment of iron overload in patients with thalassaemia major when current chelation therapy is contraindicated or inadequate.
Deferiprone Lipomed in combination with another chelator (see section 4.4) is indicated in patients with thalassaemia major when monotherapy with any iron chelator is ineffective, or when prevention or treatment of life-threatening consequences of iron overload justifies rapid or intensive correction (see section 4.2).
