Departmental officials are in regular contact with Mylan, the United Kingdom licensed supplier of Epipens, as there have been ongoing supply issues affecting this product. Supplies are currently available of the 0.3mg, although limited, and are being closely managed to ensure that pharmacies can obtain stock to fulfil prescription for patients. Mylan anticipates that supplies will stabilize in the fourth quarter of 2018.
