Keeping you informed

MSD may experience intermittent supply issues for some presentations of Sinemet as a result of an increase in demand and manufacturing capacity constraints.

We continue to receive regular updates from MSD, the company that manufactures Sinemet, letting us know about the supply issues and action they're taking to ensure Sinemet is available for people with Parkinson's across the UK.
