Has anyone found they cannot get their prescription from the Pharmacy of the above mentioned drugs? Parkinson’s UK and Parkinson’s Scotland both posted information on Facebook yesterday (Thursday 6th September)
saying there was virtually no Sinemet 12.5/50mg to be had in the UK. Merck, Sharp and Dohme the manufacturer say this has been caused by current manufacturing capacity constraints and that the Sinemet products listed above are expected to sometimes be unavailable. Sinemet 25/250mg will sometimes be unavailable from the end of September and this will continue into the first quarter of next year. Sinemet Plus 25/100mg will sometimes be unavailable from the end of October and this will continue into the first quarter of next year. There are generic versions of Co-careldopa
the active ingredient in Sinemet but from my own personal experience my body does not tolerate any change in medication and the side effects are horrendous.
Would appreciate any feedback on this as many of us at our Support Group are really concerned about not being able to source Sinemet.
