Important Priadel® Update: Reversal of Discontinuation in UK 

Essential Pharma has reversed its decision to withdraw Priadel® 200mg and 400mg tablets from the UK market with immediate effect, while facilitating pricing discussions. Priadel® will continue to be available and will not be withdrawn from the UK market by March 2021. There is no longer a need to switch patients from Priadel® to an alternative lithium preparation until further notice, continuing patient management in line with usual clinical practice.
 
The Department of Health and Social Care cannot confirm a discontinuation will not take place in future. A minimum of six months’ notice of intention to discontinue a product from the UK market is required.

See the DHSC Supply Disruption Alert 

Expiry date: Oct 13th, 2021
