The Anaphylaxis Campaign has been contacted by some of our supporters who raised concerns about the availability of EpiPen® in the UK.
We contacted Mylan UK for information and they have provided us with a statement, which is below.
If you have any concerns please speak to your pharmacist or contact our helpline team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01252 542 029.
Mylan Statement on EpiPen® 0.3mg Temporary Shortage
Due to some unforeseen supply chain issues, we are anticipating intermittent shortage of EpiPen® Adrenaline Auto injector 0.3mg in the UK. EpiPen® 0.3mg may not be available at all wholesale depots. Mylan are working diligently with our wholesale partners to ensure that EpiPen® is made available to as many patients as possible. Mylan expect to receive the next supply of EpiPen® 0.3mg week commencing 16th October and will ensure this is distributed out to the community as soon as possible.
To minimize the impact on patients, we are liaising with global supply chain to improve the supply of EpiPen®.
We do not anticipate any stock issues with EpiPen® Junior 0.15mg.
Rest assured we are doing all we can to resolve this issue as quickly and effectively as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this situation may cause
