Summary of evidence and Expert Committee recommendations
The EMLc Subcommittee accepted that medicines affecting coagulation were essential for children and endorsed the inclusion of warfarin (with square box listing) on the EMLc. Because of the need for specialist supervision of the administration of warfarin in children, the Subcommittee recommended that warfarin be included in the Complementary List for Section 10.2. The Subcommittee also recommended the addition of warfarin 0.5 mg tablets to the EMLc.
