Wockhardt will shortly be launching Ayendi® (diamorphine hydrochloride nasal spray) - the ONLY licensed intranasal diamorphine.

Paediatric emergencies are a challenge for effective pain management and when a child presents with severe, acute pain you need fast pain relief with minimal distress. RCEM guidelines recommend intranasal diamorphine as first line analgesia for acute, severe paediatric pain. Ayendi® is licensed for acute, severe nociceptive pain in children and adolescents 2 – 15 years of age in a hospital setting, thus avoiding the need for off-label usage.

Ayendi® is the first and only licensed intranasal diamorphine spray.

We hope you have an enjoyable conference and look forward to seeing you at the Wockhardt stand where we will be happy to answer any queries you may have about Ayendi® or any other of our products.
