Update 9 April 2019: Epilim Chrono 500mg tablets are temporarily out of stock again, but Sanofi tells us they will be back in stock in the week beginning 15 April 2019.
Original story - 4 March 2019: We have heard that some people are having difficulty getting Epilim Chrono from their pharmacist. Sanofi has told us that 200mg and 300mg tablets are in stock. 500mg tablets have been out of stock but are expected to be available at the beginning of March. The exact date may vary according to where you live and which wholesalers your pharmacy uses.
If your pharmacist is having difficulty getting Epilim Chrono, they can contact Sanofi Customer Services for advice.
If your pharmacist can’t get your usual formulation and dose of Epilim before you run out, your doctor might prescribe you a different formulation (for example Epilim liquid or syrup). This may mean you need to take your medicine more or less frequently. Your pharmacist should make this clear if this is the case. Alternatively, your doctor might prescribe you a different manufacturer’s version of sodium valproate.
If you have any questions about taking a different formulation or version of your medicine, speak to your GP, epilepsy specialist or epilepsy specialist nurse.
