Nutriplen name change

Q: I have a prescription for Nutriplen compact but I can only obtain Altraplen? I have been told it is the same product can I still dispense it?

A: The manufacturer Nualtra, has indicated that from 11 April 2016, the name Nutriplen has changed to Altraplen.

Nutriplen and Nutriplen Protein will become Altraplen Compact and Altraplen Protein respectively. The packaging and product labels only differ to show the new product brand names (all product codes remain the same)

Please see the current Drug Tariff's to see the listing of Altraplen
