Salovum® can be bought prescription free in pharmacies. As of December 31, 2010, Läkemedelsverket (The Medical Products Agency) has decided to include Salovum® and SPC-Flakes® in the new revised list for food for particular nutritional use for children under 16 years of age and the cost will thus be included within the national benefit scheme for prescription drugs.
For patients 16 years of age or older, dieticians and most doctors can prescribe Salovum® as “sär-när”, foods for particular nutritional uses certified by the National Food Administration (Livsmedelsverket). The cost of the products varies between the different counties (landsting).
