Drug Availability

HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Perrigo Australia is experiencing a supply interruption for Diazepam Rectal Solution as follows:

Diazepam Rectal Solution
Diazepam 5mg/5ml

This supply interruption is due to delayed quality assurance testing of the next batch due for release. Initial testing indicates a potential issue with the product shelf-life, although further quality assurance and stability testing is required. This is expected to be completed by the end of next week. However, there is the possibility that a replacement batch will need to be manufactured. The manufacturer has not yet provided an expected return date.

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 Perrigo Australia on 1800 805 546 or your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies.
