Drug Availability

HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Boucher & Muir is anticipating a supply interruption for Primacin® as follows:

Primacin® Tablets
Primaquine 7.5 mg
ARTG 226430

Normal supplies are expected to resume from mid-March 2020.

An alternative brand of primaquine 7.5mg, presented in packs of 200 tablets, is available via the Special Access Scheme (SAS). 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, or Boucher & Muir on (02) 9431 6333.
