As announced in March, Soolantra has been approved for sale in Europe.

The official prescribing information for Soolantra in the EEA has been published.

The names are all pretty obvious – making it clear why Galderma would invent a new name for their product. The only exception is that Soolantra will be known as Vastreka in Itay.
