We have received notification of a shortage affecting disulfiram 200mg tablets. The product has recently divested from Actavis to TEVA , who are now advising that supplies are unavailable until April 2017.  A press statement that TEVA issued this week provides further information.

UK Medicines Information have prepared a shortages memo, which is available on the SPS website: https://www.sps.nhs.uk/articles/shortage-of-disulfiram-tablets-200mg/

We are aware that some supplies of unlicensed product are available from abroad via the UK specialist pharmaceutical importers.
