Sanofi statement on Epilim (valproate) stock levels

9 Apr 2019

Sanofi has told us that although they are still experiencing low stock of some valproate products, overall stock levels are improving. Here is their statement in full:

‘Supply of valproate is available in the UK. However, due to disruption in the production of valproate at a Sanofi manufacturing site outside of the UK in the summer of 2018, stock levels for some treatments of valproate may be lower than usual. This disruption was temporary and our overall stock levels are improving every week. This temporary disruption is not related to Brexit. The Department of Health and Social Care is aware of the disruption of supply of valproate and we are in regular contact to update them on the situation. We would like to reassure patients that we are doing everything we can to manage the situation and we have systems in place to ensure there is sufficient product available across the UK. Any patients who have concerns regarding stock information should contact their pharmacists who can contact their supplier to check stock availability in their area.’
