Update on Frisium Supply

Epilepsy Ireland has been made aware of reports of difficulties with the supply of Frisium (Clobazam) 10 mg tablets recently.  We have contacted the Irish Pharmaceutical Union and also the Health Products Regulation Authority to clarify what the position is currently.

There had been a delay with production of Frisium which led to stock being made available on a case by case basis in Ireland by the manufacturers Sanofi.
