HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Apotex is experiencing a supply interruption for APO-Nitrofurantoin as follows:

Nitrofurantoin 50mg
ARTG 299383

Nitrofurantoin 100mg
ARTG 299385

This supply interruption is due to an unexpected increase in demand. Normal supplies are expected to return by late June 2021. The Macrodantin® brand is also experiencing a supply interruption and will be discontinued later in the year.

HPS Pharmacies has sourced an internationally registered alternative of each strength which 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.
