Entacapone

Entacapone 200mg made by teva seems to be out of stock. Does pduk have any news on this please

Hello @gus and thank you for your post.

I have looked at this for you and, at the moment, I can’t seem to find any current information to indicate that there is a widespread supply problem with this medication.

I am sorry I cannot give you a definitive answer at the moment however I have flagged this for one of my colleagues to see if they have any further information and I’m sure they will be in touch as soon as they can if they have anything to add.

In the meantime, if you continue to have difficulty getting hold of this medication, I would like to suggest you make contact with your health professionals to ask them for advice on how to proceed in terms of your ongoing treatment.

If you would like to discuss this with someone in more detail you can also make contact with our free helpline - our friendly advisers are ready to provide information and support on any aspect of life with Parkinson’s and can also arrange to put you in contact with a Parkinson’s Specialist nurse if required. Our helpline is available from 9am-7pm Mon-Fri and 9am-2pm Saturday. You can call us on 0808 800 0303 or email [email protected].

Take care

Thank you for your reply

Hi @gus,

Can you let me know what pharmacy you went to? Please feel free to send me this info via private message - once I have it I’ll forward it onto my colleague in our policy team who will look into this further.

Best wishes,

Thanks Gus, I have passed this information onto my colleague and will keep you posted on her response.

Hi @gus, :wave:

Hope you’re well today. :slightly_smiling_face:

As promised, my colleague has looked into this and she recommends that you encourage your pharmacist to order from AAH (a wholesalers) as they seem to have the medication you’re looking for in stock.

I hope this is helpful information to you.

Best wishes,
Reah

so maybe suggest to Gus that when he goes to his pharmacist he encourages them to order from there.

Yep done the trick :ok_hand: many thanks to you & pduk
