The Department is aware that the supplier of Sabril tablets has experienced a delay in delivery and as a result the short term local distribution issues are now expected to be resolved in mid-May 2019.

The supplier has confirmed that there are no current supply issues affecting Sabril granules and supplies are available.

We understand the importance of this medicine and we continue to monitor the situation and work with the supplier to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.
