Drug Availability

HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Bayer is experiencing 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

Supplies of Citracal® tablets are expected to return to normal in the second week of January 2019; Citracal® Plus D does not currently have an expected date of return. 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.
