PETHIDINE TABLETS, when are they back in stock

UK CITIZEN made this Freedom of Information request to Department of Health and Social Care Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for UK CITIZEN to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

Since 2022 Pethidine tablets 50mg have been out of stock since January 2022. The M.P s and manufactureres, Teva and Martindale are advising there is no resupply date, however, there are websites stating the date is April 2024. The companies keep giving resupply dates that keep being changed to a different date. This is not good enough. I have been prescribed this medication for ongoing kidney stones and the alternative medication is not beneficial to me.

Yours faithfully,

mrs j moran
