Update as of 21 August 2017
Accord has made more supplies of generic clobazam and distributed them to all wholesalers. So pharmacists should now be able to get it from any wholesaler.
Frisium is still out of stock. We will update this page when we know more.

The Department of Health has updated us on the situation with clobazam supply problems in the UK.
Auden McKenzie has stopped making generic clobazam tablets and passed its licence to Accord Healthcare. Clobazam tablets made by Accord are currently available. Pharmacies should be able to get supplies from the wholesaler Alliance. If your pharmacy has any trouble getting hold of Accord clobazam, they can contact Accord directly on 0800 373 573.
Supplies of liquid clobazam suspension made by Martindale Pharma (called Tapclob) and Rosemont Pharma are also available.
Frisium tablets are still temporarily out of stock. If you normally take Frisium tablets you may wish to check with your pharmacist just in case they still have supplies. If they don’t, you may wish to ask your GP, epilepsy nurse or epilepsy specialist about temporarily switching to generic clobazam tablets.
