Oleptro 24 Hour 150mg

Updated
Steve Says:

My wife, age 63 has been on Oleptro Extended Release 150MG for 2 years for MDD (major depressive disorder). She takes one tablet at night before bed. It has been working well for her.

However, when I went to get the refill her 30 day supply, Sam's Club said they could not get it because their supplier--Bergman--had it on back order with no specific time to supply. I checked with Randall's pharmacy who is supplied by Cardinal Health--same thing, backordered with no "fill" time. Checked with CVS and Kroger-McKesson is supplier--same thing, backordered. Anyone have any information about why this drug is not available?

Hello, Steve! How are you and your wife? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having.

I haven't been able to find any information on why it isn't available, but it sounds like the manufacturer may be dealing with a shortage for some reason.

Have you spoken to her doctor about it?

The active ingredient in Oleptro is Trazodone, which is available as a generic, though it isn't time released. She may be able to take it, in the meantime. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes.

I was having trouble finding Oleptro 300 mg. It appears that the manufacturer is no longer making it. I was told to check out a compounding pharmacy.

I'm am having the same problem with 150mg Oleptro through CVS Pharmacy and CVS Caremark. My wife works in the medical/pharmaceutical industry and says it is more likely a contractual issue with McKesson.

It has been discontinued by Angelini/Labopharm! What do we do now. The generic doesn't work the same. I'm going thru bad withdrawal. Please help! Anywhere in the world it's still available to order?
