Decision delay for proposed primidone brand change
We delayed making a decision on the primidone brand change.
What we’re doing
Pharmac is taking more time to work through some new information received during the consultation on a proposal to change the funded brand of primidone. This has delayed a decision on primidone and means the proposed change for primidone will not start on 1 September 2021 as we consulted on.
A decision about the long-term supply of primidone has not been made. We expect to provide you with more detail on the longer-term supply of primidone as soon as we can.
There is enough Apo-Primidone stock currently available for people to continue to be prescribed and take their Apotex brand of primidone as usual.
If you have any questions about this you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org; or call our toll-free number (9 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday) on 0800 66 00 50.
