No to Nolotil: Over 500 people support the Olive Press campaign to protect Brits from lethal painkiller

OVER 500 people have signed an Olive Press petition to keep tourists and expats safe from the deadly painkiller Nolotil.

Our Kill the Drug campaign urges Spanish health professionals to agree to follow the 2018 directive banning the German-made drug for British, Scandinavian and Irish patients. 

Since launching on February 12, some 505 people have backed the campaign, with many adding comments.

One supporter wrote: “Well done for tackling this problem. Too many lives have already been lost.”

While Nolotil is now banned in 40 countries, it is still being regularly prescribed around Spain.

Campaigner Christina del Campo of the Association for Drug Affected People (ADAF) claims her group has over 100 cases of British people dying from the drug.

Others have had amputations ‘and worse’.

“Something needs to be done about this as nobody’s taking notice. It’s excellent the campaign is growing,” she said.

We now plan to contact local health facilities to urge them to comply with the official warning from Madrid that urges hospitals and clinics not to hand out the drug to foreigners.

  1. Thank you for taking on this very important issue. I noticed in another article that you have a few private hospitals that are on board to stop providing Nolotil to those who could have adverse effects. I did not see Vithas Hospitals on your list. I hope they will join the other hospitals and stop giving out Nolotil as well. I was hospitalized for a hip fracture and was given Nolotil, then prescribed it and told to take it for 6 weeks during the healing. I did not know about this at the time, so I feel VERY blessed to be ok. I now tell all doctors and hospitals I’m allergic. But I’d love to see Vithas on your list.
