HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Mylan Health is experiencing a supply interruption for Cilicaine® as follows:
Procaine benzylpenicillin (procaine penicillin) 1.5g
Normal supplies are expected to resume by end-January 2021. Alternative preparations may be accessed via the Special Access Scheme (SAS), if necessary. These alternatives are available in a strength of 1.2 million units. Please note that SAS alternatives are subject to a longer lead-time and different pricing as they must be sourced internationally.
1 g = 1 million units
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.
Should you require further information regarding this matter, please contact Mylan Health on 1800 274 276 or your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies.
