Levomepromazine (Nozinan): Supply issue

There's a shortage of New Zealand-approved Nozinan.

In order to ensure on-going supply of Nozinan, the supplier (Sanofi) has sourced Nozinan made for the Swiss market. These will be available in the Schedule from 1 March 2020. 

There is a difference in the active ingredient strength. 1.5 x Swiss Nozinan tablets ≈ 2 x NZ Nozinan tablets.
