The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has issued a medicine supply notification for various strengths of Stanek and Sastravi (levodopa/carbidopa/entacapone) tablets.
Teva and Accord are the suppliers of Stanek tablets and Sastravi and the anticipated re-supply dates range between June and August 2020, DHSC has said.
Supplies of Stalevo tablets which are considered equivalent, continue to remain available.
A copy of this medicine supply notification has been sent to all pharmacy NHS email addresses.
DHSC has also issued a medicine supply notification for all formulations of Ranitidine.
Ranitidine 50mg/2ml injection is anticipated to be unavailable until further notice.
Ranitidine film-coated tablets, effervescent tablets and oral solution continue to remain out of stock.
All formulations of Ranitidine are affected due to on-going regulatory investigations into the presence of the contaminant, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), in samples of ranitidine active substance.
