RE availability,

It's been many months since the UK version of Nardil was available here. As a result, we were initially using imports from the US, but they have suspended sales to the UK temporarily, due to insufficient stock. Presumably, the unanticipated increased demand for the US products from abroad has caused a temporary market shortage in the US. I would ensure that you request your next supply in good time, because it appears that certain US wholesalers may be out-of-stock.

The UK version of Nardil tablets won't be available for a year or more, unfortunately.... assuming it is actually re-launched here at all. Some patients have been told they have to switch, and others already have ... often with poor results (to say the least).

The good news is that certain Specials Manufacturers (rather similar to what you call compounding pharmacies) are now manufacturing phenelzine capsules on site, in the UK. We are able to supply patients with these, instead of the imported tablet version. It will come as a huge relief to some that an unlicensed capsule version is finally available for UK patients unable to switch medication. Awareness of the capsule version is currently low, but I expected it to increase over the next few weeks/months. We may end up with 2-3 companies manufacturing the capsules.

In other countries, such as Australia, I'm unsure of the current situation, but I expect it is much worse than the UK. In spite of the high prices charged, we are fortunate to have numerous Specials Manufacturers available - all are aimed at producing products to fulfill the needs of patients unable to be treated with any approved/licensed medication. In particular, they specialise in making liquid forms of medication normally only available as tablets.
