Stock availability of the 20mg strength of Clexane Injection (enoxaparin sodium) are being controlled temporarily due to low levels of this product. Levels are not expected to return to normal until later this month.

Community Pharmacy Scotland has issued advice that Sanofi is protecting a small amount of stock to meet historical prescribing levels (estimated at under 30 items a week in Scotland).

“Our current understanding of the arrangement is that this stock will only be available to order by community pharmacies from Phoenix,” said CPS on Tuesday. “Not all community pharmacies have Phoenix accounts; if a pharmacy needs to access the stock and doesn’t have an account, they will need to source supply via another route, for example sourcing via a neighbouring pharmacy that has an account.”

No Clexane 20mg stock is being made available to hospitals currently, but arrangements are in place for them to access an alternative low molecular weight heparin.
