Carbagen and Carbagen SR are out of stock in the UK

Carbagen (carbamazepine) and Carbagen SR (prolonged-release carbamazepine) are out of stock in the UK. Mylan who manufacture both drugs, say this is due to a supply constraint.

The company hopes the medication will be back in stock from June 2019. Other manufacturers' versions of both the standard and prolonged release carbamazepine are available.

If you are worried about taking a different version of your medication, please make an appointment to discuss this with your GP or epilepsy specialist.
