HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Alphapharm is experiencing a supply interruption for pindolol as follows:

Barbloc® 5 Tablets
Pindolol 5 mg
ARTG 17589

Normal supplies are expected to resume by the end of September 2020. An internationally registered brand of pindolol tablets has been approved for supply under Section 19A of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989. Please note that Section 19A 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 Alphapharm on 1800 274 276 or your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies.
