A shortage of Gabitril (5, 10 & 15mg) film coated tablets has been confirmed by the Health Products Regulation Authority with manufacturing delays cited as the reason for the shortage.
The HPRA have stated that the expected return date of normal supply is October 2019.
Epilepsy Ireland have contacted both the HPRA and the manufacturers of Gabitril, TEVA, seeking further information on the shortage. As soon as we recieve further information, it will be posted on our website and our social media channels.
In the interim, please consult with your medical team or Epilepsy Nurse Specialist if you have any concerns.
