Epanutin 30mg/5ml oral suspension out of stock until late June 2020

We have been informed by Pfizer that there will be insufficient stocks of Epanutin 30mg/5ml oral suspension, from the week commencing 2 March 2020. This supply issue is expected to last until late June 2020.

During this period, Pfizer has been able to import sufficient supplies of the Canadian product, Dilantin-30 to fill the gap.

Epanutin (phenytoin) is a category 1 anti-epileptic medication. Anyone who is switched to Dilantin-30 should be carefully monitored and may require specialist advice or support.

If you are taking Epanutin, make sure you discuss your prescription with your doctor.
