Shortage of Carbagen (carbamazepine) tablets

There is a shortage 200 and 400mg immediate release (IR) and 200 and 400 mg prolonged release (PR) tablets (the 100mg IR tablets are no longer marketed). The PR 200mg and 400mg tablets are expected back in stock in late 2019, the IR 200mg tablets end of second quarter 2019 and IR 400mg tablets in late 2019. It is likely some Carbagen products are already out of stock and due to the length of time these products will be out of stock, it is anticipated that all patients on Carbagen will need to be switched to Tegretol.
