Provigil / Dexamfetamine shortage - Teva UK

Blog post
1 April 2019

We (Narcolepsy UK) have vigorously & repeatedly stressed the importance of these medicines being available and despite direct approaches by Matt (chairperson of our trustees), we are still unable to make re-supply happen any sooner. Teva UK have offered their apologies and appreciate that this doesn’t help from a patient perspective. They have also assured us that they are doing everything they can to prioritise the release and shipment of stock and for the future, have put a flag on their system to ensure that Narcolepsy UK are informed of any supply challenges if they arise.
