This recommendation is not intended to affect treatment with naltrexone–bupropion that was started in the NHS before this guidance was published. Adults having treatment outside this recommendation may continue without change to the funding arrangements in place for them before this guidance was published, until they and their NHS clinician consider it appropriate to stop.
Reason for decision:
Not recommended for prescribing on the NHS in Lancashire & South Cumbria
