Pitolisant / Wakix® Update

node leader
9 September 2016

We have now received confirmation from the UK Supplier that the Department of Health have now priced Wakix® (Pitolisant) as follows:

Presentation NHS List Price
Wakix® (Pitolisant) 4.5mg x 30 £310
Wakix® (Pitolisant) 18mg x 30 £310

This pricing is at a similar level to what we see for Xyrem® (Sodium Oxybate) and will mean that we will have to work closely with clinicians, manufacturer & supplier to ensure that a robust case for patient access can be made.
