The Department of Health and Social Care has extended serious shortage protocols for Fluoxetine.

The SSP for Fluoxetine 10mg tablets, which was due to expire on September 11, will now end on March 31 next year.

The SSP Fluoxetine 40mg capsules, which was expected to end today, has been extended to September 25.
