The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) has issued a medicine supply notification for Levomepromazine (Nozinan) 25mg/1ml solution for injection.

The solution for injection by Sanofi is currently out of stock and the stock is expected to resume in the week commencing February 24, 2020.

“The only other UK supplier, Wockhardt, currently have stock. As levomepromazine is widely used as a second line agent for terminal agitation and intractable nausea and vomiting, specialist palliative care teams should be consulted on management options should stock run out,” a Specialist Pharmacy Service (SPS) statement read.
