HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Aspen Pharmacare and Alphapharm are experiencing a supply interruption for indometacin capsules as follows:

Indocid® Capsules
Indometacin 25mg
ARTG 76021

Arthrexin® Capsules
Indometacin 25mg
ARTG 17586

Supplies are expected to return by early March 2021. International brands of indometacin capsules may be accessed via the Special Access Scheme (SAS), if necessary. Please note that SAS alternatives are subject to a longer lead-time and different pricing as they must be sourced internationally.

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.
