HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Aspen Australia is experiencing a supply interruption for Chlorvescent® effervescent tablets as follows:

Chlorvescent® Effervescent Tablets
Potassium 14mmol & chloride 8mmol
ARTG 71981

This supply interruption is due to an unexpected increase in demand following manufacturing issues and the discontinuation of some brands of slow-release potassium chloride tablets. Supplies of Chlorvescent® effervescent tablets are expected to return to normal in mid-February 2019.

Retain this notice in a prominent position, including in other related business units until supplies return to normal. Report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.
