Riboflavin 5'-phosphate

Hi all;

left field request on a Friday.  Anyone got any experience using riboflavin 5'-phosphate (instead of plain riboflavin) - one of our consultants has an idea about it being better absorbed and more palatable.  

Ideally looking for an oral liquid formulation.


Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.

No experience with riboflavin-5-phophate, sorry, but on a similar-ish note - can I ask where people get liquid riboflavin from? We've managed with tablets thus far, but have some new, trickier patients who will need supplies from us.

many thanks

Hi Karen;

We buy from Martindale Pharmaceuticals.  250mg in 5ml, 500ml costs about £150.

30 day expiry.

Thanks Adam - that's saved me a lot of work.
