The following prolonged release acetazolamide capsules are out of stock in the UK:
- Diamox SR 250mg prolonged release capsules, made by Concordia International
- Eytazox 250mg prolonged release capsules, made by Auden McKenzie
Both companies expect to have these medicines back in stock at the end of September.
Normal release acetazolamide tablets, called Diamox without SR in the name, are still in stock.
If you take prolonged release acetazolamide, and are due to pick up your next prescription before the end of September, it may not be available. You may need to temporarily switch to the normal release tablets.
If you have any concerns about this, speak to your doctor, epilepsy nurse or pharmacist.
