Product Availability


HPS Pharmacies wish to offer an update on the current shortage of:

Antabuse® (disulfiram) Tablets 200mg,
ARTG 70468.

Aspen Australia advised medical practitioners in July 2013 that changes in the manufacturing process would interrupt supply for 3-4 months.

Stock is now expected to be available for distribution within the next 2-3 weeks.

Even though HPS Pharmacies’ stock holdings are now exhausted, we have negotiated access to emergency supplies to meet individual patient needs.

Please retain this notice in a prominent position, including other related business units as a reminder for all staff members until stock availability has returned to normal.

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 the Antabuse Hotline: (03) 9709 2200.

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.
