Adalat – Supply Issues

Bayer have announced plans to permanently discontinue nifedipine immediate-release 5mg & 10mg capsules (Adalat) in 2019. There are no other nifedipine immediate-release products licensed in the UK.

The NHS Specialist Pharmacy Service have published an updated memo with advice on alternatives to immediate-release nifepidine, as well as information about the temporary supply issues with several Bayer modified-release nifedipine products (Adalat Retard and Adalat LA).
