Carbagen (carbamazepine) discontinued in the UK

28 Sep 2020

Mylan have discontinued their version of carbamazepine, called Carbagen.

Carbagen has been out of stock since January 2019, so most people will have already switched to a different manufacturer’s version of carbamazepine. If you are still taking Carbagen we recommend speaking to your GP or epilepsy specialist as soon as possible, as it is unlikely there will be much stock left.
