Drug Availability


HPS Pharmacies wish to give notice that Pfizer Australia are currently experiencing a supply constraint of:

Precedex Vials

The supply constraint is due to an unexpected increase in demand. Although stock is still available, distribution will be constrained by Pfizer Australia until early March 2017.

During this time, the following Precedex Ready to Use 4µg/ml formulations will remain available and unaffected by supply restrictions:

  • Precedex Ready to Use 80μg/20ml x10 vials
  • Precedex Ready to Use 200μg/50ml x20 bottles
  • Precedex Ready to Use 400μg/100ml x10 bottles

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 Pfizer Australia on (02) 9850 3333.
