Package Alert


HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Alphapharm have given notice of a labeling omission for:

ADEFIN XL 60 (nifedipine) 60mg blister pack, 30 tablets
Aust R: 91778
Batch number Expiry Date
CR07841 February 2015

CR08235 June 2015
CR08236 June 2015
CR02429 May 2014

The notice has been issued because the blister foils have not been printed with the batch number prefix and expiry date prefix, although the actual batch number and expiry dates are printed. The outer cartons are printed correctly with batch number prefix, batch number, expiry date prefix, and expiry date.

Alphapharm recommends that the blister platforms are stored in the outer carton until immediately before dose administration.

Please retain this notice in a prominent position, including other related business units as a reminder for all staff members, and report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.

Should you require further information regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies or Alphapharm Medical Information on 1800 028 365.

Information regarding expected dates for supply may vary subject to delays which are out of our control. HPS Pharmacies does not accept responsibility for such changes but will endeavour to keep our clients updated as information is made available from drug manufacturers or wholesalers.
