Concerta™ Now Available In The UK
We have just heard from B R Pharma that they are now receiving supplies of Concerta™. This will be available to people in the UK under the same conditions as Ritalin SR and ADDerall. What this means is that B R Pharma have received the licence to import the medications but they remain unlicensed as far as Doctors are concerned, i.e. they will not appear on their computer screens as medications available to prescribe. However, Concerta™ will be available to patients on a named patient basis under guidance from a consultant. If you are interested in using Concerta™ you would have to approach the consultant and make sure you can give them information about the medication and ask if they would be willing to prescribe. Due to the cost of Concerta™ B R Pharma is only importing a limited quantity which they are doing on a supply and demand basis at present. This means that if you do have a prescription for Concerta™ the Pharmacist will have to fax a photocopy of the original prescription to BR Pharma International on (UK Only) (Tel:020 8238 6770) BR Pharma who will then order from the US, this can take about 1 month for delivery. B R Pharma have told us however that as demand increases the supply will improve.
Concerta™ is an extended-release formulation of methylphenidate tablets for ADHD treatment which is designed to last throughout the day with just one dose. Methylphenidate is the most commonly prescribed medication for treating and managing ADHD. It has been used safely and successfully among children and adults for more than 25 years. Further information on Concerta™ can be found by clicking here and here.
We have also been informed that B R Pharma now have supplies of Catapres (Clonidine) Patches and Melatonin in 1mg, 3mg and 5mg tablets, which I believe they supply at a cheaper cost than another company who also supply this medication.
More details for Catapres Patches can be found by clicking here and for Melatonin by clicking here.
Although we have the details for Melatonin on our Natural Remedies section it is only available in the UK on prescription.
