Parents are now being advised by health officials to monitor their children if they have been treated with omeprazole recently and if any unusual symptoms develop. The authorities feel that the contamination only affected the child formulas of the drug and adults need not worry.
Most Spanish parents in the region are panic-stricken and trying their best to look for medical assistance to see if their child is at risk of the disease or if they were treated with omeprazole from the faulty batches. Reports have also come out that once the children stopped the medication, the condition decreased, so that’s a good sign and ray of hope that the issue is a temporary one.
