Tegretol Prolonged Release stock in the UK

8 Apr 2021

We have heard that some pharmacies are having trouble getting stock of Tegretol (carbamazepine) Prolonged Release tablets.

We have contacted Novartis, the maker of Tegretol Prolonged Release tablets, about this issue. Novartis have told us this medicine is available, but that due to a number of issues many wholesalers have been running out of stock. This is affecting both the 200mg and 400mg strengths.

Novartis say that if pharmacies can’t get this medicine from their usual supplier they can order direct by contacting Novartis Customer Services on 08457 419 442 or email novartis.customercare@novartis.com.
