The attention of the Agency has been drawn to the recent recall of one batch of Apo-Cabergoline (500MCG) by the Singapore Health Authority due to the desiccant present in the bottle cap of the drug which may not protect the product from moisture through the shelf-life thereby resulting to the reduction/degrading of the active ingredient overtime on long-term storage.

Apo-Cabergoline is a drug used to treat different types of medical problems that occur when too much of the hormone prolactin is produced. It can be used to treat certain menstrual problems, fertility problems in men and women, pituitary prolactinomas (Tumours of the pituitary gland)
