Drug Availability


HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that AbbVie Australia are currently experiencing an interruption to the supply of:

Lucrin® 5mg/mL injection
leuprorelin acetate
ARTG 29658

The supply interruption is due to unprecedented demand which has exhausted supplies at the wholesaler. Additional stock is expected to be available by mid-September 2015.

HPS Pharmacies have secured additional stock nationally, however we anticipate this may not be sufficient to meet ongoing demand before normal supplies resume.

Please 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 AbbVie Australia on 1800 043 460.

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.
