Drug Availability

 

HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Allergan are experiencing an interruption to the supply of Ircal® and Refresh® eye ointments as follows:

Ircal® Eye Ointment
Liquid paraffin, white soft paraffin 42.5%/57.3%

Refresh® Night Time Eye Ointment
Liquid paraffin, white soft paraffin 42.5%/57.3%

Normal supplies of Ircal® and Refresh® eye ointments are expected to return in October 2018. There are a number of lubricating eye drops and eye gels that may be considered as an alternative during this period. If an eye ointment is required, Poly Visc® may be an appropriate option.

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 Allergan Australia on 1800 252 224.

Information regarding expected dates for supply may vary subject to delays which are out of our control. HPS Pharmacies does not accept responsibility for such changes but will endeavour to keep our clients updated as information is made available from drug manufacturers or wholesalers.
