The National Agency For Food, Drug and Control (NAFDAC) has given warning about the circulation of fake Postinor 2 tablets in Nigeria.

Postinor 2 is a brand of emergency contraceptive pill containing 0.75mg levonorgestrel. It is used as an emergency contraceptive agent after unplanned sex. Postinor 2 is originally manufactured by Gedeon Richter PLC in Budapest, Hungary.

Chemical analysis of the counterfeit Postinor 2 shows it contains no pharmaceutical active ingredient whatsoever.

Product details for this counterfeit batch of Postinor 2 includes:

BATCH NUMBER:                         T38012

EXPIRY DATE:                               August 2018

These product details are an actual copy of a genuine batch of Postinor 2, but printed on the counterfeit product. Product information on the package and information leaflet is written in English, French and Spanish languages. It also has a non-usable white "scratch area'' on the reverse side of the pack.
