Current UK stock of 250 mg metyrapone capsules remains low and is at risk of running out before the next anticipated UK delivery, which should arrive at the end of July. 
 
HRA Pharma have asked for orders to be based on immediate need only and for prescriptions to be limited to only weeks at a time for this short, interim period.
 
In the event of the product becoming temporarily unavailable please consider licenced alternative options such as Ketoconazole HRA® (ketoconazole tablets 200 mg).
