There is a supply problem with clobazam tablets in the UK.
Auden McKenzie has stopped making its version of clobazam tablets, called Clobazam Auden. There are no stocks left.
Sanofi is temporarily out of stock of its version of clobazam tablets, called Frisium. Sanofi has told us the tablets will be back in stock in the next few weeks, but is not able to confirm the date.
You may wish to check with your pharmacist just in case they still have supplies.
If you usually take Clobazam Auden or Frisium tablets for your epilepsy, and you can’t find a local supply, you may be able to take liquid clobazam instead. Please speak to your GP, epilepsy nurse or epilepsy specialist for advice. You will need to get a prescription for liquid clobazam for a pharmacist to supply this.
Epilepsy Action has raised this issue with the Department of Health as a matter of urgency. We will update this page as soon as we have more information about this situation.
