Hive Pharmacy has been supplying Phenelzine tablets and capsules since Nardil became unavailable. We can dispense your NHS prescription for phenelzine and post it to you for FREE.
The Phenelzine shortage
Kyowa Kirin has informed the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) that due to manufacturing challenges, Nardil has been out of stock since Summer 2019. There is no exact date of when the product will be back in stock, however the availability issues are expected to last well into 2021.
Do I need an alternative to Phenelzine?
NO. We can supply imported phenelzine, so there's no need to look for an alternative.
How does HIVE manage to supply Phenelzine?
HIVE pharmacy are experts in obtaining import medicines. Phenelzine is imported and can be supplied to you so that you don't run out of your medication.
Phenelzine tends to only be used in difficult to treat patients and many of these have been stabilised on this treatment for a long time. Given the difficulties in withdrawing treatment and initiating new treatments in patients stabilised on Phenelzine it would seem advisable to maintain them on this treatment using unlicensed imports should they run out of supply.
Hive Pharmacy is able to help patients taking Phenelzine tablets or capsules to continue treatment uninterrupted. We have been supplying unlicensed Phenelzine by import continuously since Nardil stopped production.
