Zonisamide 50mg 56 Tablets was launched in May 2017 in competition with Eisai brand Zonegran.
Since the launch of Zonisamide, the prices for this competitive generic have fallen from the average UK price of £35.80 in May 2017 to £7.09 in November 2018. Alongside this, the average Zonegran retail price has gradually come down from the normal price of above £41 to around £35.80, which happened almost instantly when its generic was launched. This was due to the amount of parallel import competition.
The list reimbursement price was introduced for Zonegram in Feb 2012 and has stayed at £47.01. Despite this, over the next two years, the average price for Zonegran remained unstable, changing constantly from month to month.
