Medication Shortage

Aug. 31, 2018

A few months ago we let you know that Sinemet 250/25Mg strength was experiencing some supply difficulties. This shortage has now worsened and includes other strengths.

The manufacturer of Sinemet has not been able to share with us why this has occurred, however wishes to reassure members of the Parkinson’s and Heath Care community they are working to rectify the situation as soon as possible.

The medications affected includes:

Sinemet 100/25 Mg

SInemet 250/25mg

Sinemet CR 200/50

This supply shortage is expected to continue until December. If you are taking Sinemet you should discuss how you may be able to modify your medication regime  with your GP or Neurologist.

If you have any concerns or questions contact the Health Information Team at Parkinson’s Victoria on 1800 644 189.
