Drug Availability Update

Dear Valued Client,

HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Bayer is continuing to experience a supply interruption for Citracal tablets as follows:

Citracal® Tablets
Calcium (as citrate) 250mg
ARTG 80764

Citracal® Plus D Tablets
Calcium (as citrate) + Colecalciferol 315mg/12.5mcg
ARTG 129696

Bayer are currently unable to advise of an expected date of return for Citracal® tablets or Citracal® Plus D tablets. Calcium carbonate may be considered as an alternative to calcium citrate for some patients, although its absorption is more dependent upon gastric pH.

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 your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies, or Bayer Australia on 1800 678 368.
