The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has issued a medicine supply alert for lamotrigine 5mg dispersible tablets.
The DHSC said they expect lamotrigine 5mg dispersible tablets to be out of stock until late March 2023.
Branded lamotrigine (Lamictal) 2mg and 5mg dispersible tablets remain available but are unable to support the increase in demand. Pharmacies may be able to get supply of unlicensed lamotrigine 5mg dispersible/chewable tablets.
If you have any concerns about getting your usual medicine, please speak to your pharmacist or GP for advice.
