All dosages of Epilim are now back in stock
Following on from our news story on 1 February 2019, we have been informed by Sanofi that all doses and formulations of Epilim (sodium valproate) are currently in stock in the UK.
Sanofi said: " Due to temporary disruption in the production of valproate at a Sanofi manufacturing site outside of the UK, stock levels for some treatments of valproate may be lower than usual".
Sanofi advises that patients or carers with an enquiry about sodium valproate should speak to their pharmacist or GP in the first instance.
