Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has issued a medicine supply notification for Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal) 300mg and 600mg tablets on Wednesday (14 June). 

It has notified that the Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal) 300mg tablets will be out of stock from late June 2023 until mid-July 2023 and Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal) 600mg tablets are out of stock until mid-July 2023.

However, generic oxcarbazepine 300mg and 600mg tablets remain available and will be able to support increased demand.

“Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal) 150mg tablets and generic oxcarbazepine 150mg tablets remain available but cannot support the increase in demand,” said DHSC. “Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal) 60mg/ml oral suspension remains available but cannot meet an increase in demand.”

DHSC has sent a copy of this medicine supply notification, including further information for pharmacy teams, to all pharmacy NHS email addresses.
