Propylthiouracil (PTU) No Longer Made by Paladin
The manufacturing of PTU has been discontinued by the sole Canadian provider, Paladin Labs. To our knowledge, PTU cannot currently be compounded and there is no avenue to access PTU from different international suppliers. Challenges in accessing PTU have already been reported by patients.
CSEM recognizes the importance of this medication. We have contacted Health Canada (see attached correspondence) to implore them to ensure the availability of PTU in Canada. Please consider contacting your MP or the Minister of Health, Patty Hajdu, on behalf of Canadians who require this medication.
