Cilest to be discontinued

The manufacturer of Cilest® (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) has written to healthcare professionals advising that this product will be discontinued with effect from July 2019.

The letter states that this was a commercial decision to exit the oral hormonal contraceptive market and it is stressed that the are no safety, efficacy or quality issues with the product. Current supplies are expected to last until mid-July 2019.

There are two alternative products that are currently available in the UK with the same active ingredients - Cilique® and Lizinna®.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this product being discontinued. It would be prudent to run clinical system searches to identify any patients who are currently prescribed this product to allow a review and arrangements made to identify a suitable alternative.

Both Cilique and Lizinna (and other OCP brands) are available privately from UK regulated online clinics such as Dr Fox Pharmacy.
