Canada: Demulen 30 birth control pills: Packages containing broken or chipped pills (English Only)
 
Pfizer Canada Inc. has notified Health Canada that it has received complaints of broken or chipped pills involving Demulen 30, a prescription birth control pill. Pfizer Canada has advised that it has received complaints of broken or chipped pills in packages of Demulen 30 (28 day package, DIN 00471526). Health Canada continues to remind women to check their packages of birth control pills and to report problems if they see them. If they notice anything unusual in the package, such as missing or damaged pills, they should return the package to the pharmacy for replacement as soon as possible. Skipping a dose because the pill is missing, or taking a damaged (for example, chipped or fragmented) pill, may increase the risk of pregnancy because less active ingredient may be taken. It is important to get a replacement package as soon as possible to avoid missing any doses.
