Some dosages of Topamax are out of stock in the UK

Some dosages of Topamax (topiramate), 25mg and 100mg are currently out of stock in the UK.

The manufacturer, Glenmark Pharma, says this is due to manufacturing constraints.

Glenmark say: "We are working our hardest to rectify this situation as quickly as possible."

Epilepsy Society will post any updates on these shortages as soon as we receive them.

Other versions of Topamax (50mg and 200mg) are currently in stock.

Please make an appointment with your GP or epilepsy specialist to discuss taking a different version of your medication.
