Several years ago a drug for epileptics was undergoing similar 'We no longer can have it...' and the society that represents people with epilepsy fought to have it retained. They suceeded, though production had to be moved to India from the US.

What is the NOS doing to ensure that the many benificiaries of Protelos can continue to take this medication?

Hi Sarah,

Please post your question in the 'ask the nurses' forum on this site when it opens on Tuesday. They will be able to give you more information on this.

But this is a policy issue - not a medical issue?

Hi Sarah,

It's a medical policy issue

Our policy team and our nurses are working together on this, as they often do.

If you post your question in the 'ask the nurses' forum you will get a joint response.
