easier for Canadians to get Bicillin L-A for syphilis
It'll be easier for Canadians to get Bicillin L-A for syphilis.
The long-acting penicillin G benzathine is finally back...six years after being discontinued. In the interim, clinicians had to get it through Health Canada's Special Access Programme.
This is good news. Syphilis cases are up...and a single IM dose of Bicillin L-A is the treatment of choice for most patients.
