Medicine Shortages Information Initiative

26 May 2014

The Medicine Shortages Information Initiative provides information about prescription medicine shortages in Australia. This information is provided to assist health professionals and consumers when there is a temporary or permanent disruption (discontinuation) to the supply of a medicine in Australia.

The medicine shortages information on this website is mostly based on information provided voluntarily to the TGA by sponsors. The information provided refers to the supply of prescription medicines to the overall Australian market. This means that stock of a particular medicine may still be available at your pharmacy to fill your prescription.

If you are having difficulty obtaining a medicine that has been prescribed to you, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
