Acute Dystonia following brand confusion: where are we heading?

A child with trivial trauma was prescribed Serronak which is a Fixed Dose Combination of serratiopeptidae (10mg) and diclofenac sodium (50mg) by a treating physican. He instead received Serenace (Haloperidol 10mg) which lead to him presenting as acute dystonia to pediatric emergency department. We report this preventable adverse drug reaction and highlight the importance of avoiding such prescription errors.
