Drug Availability


HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Aspen Pharmacare Australia are currently experiencing an interruption to the supply of:

Zantac® Ampoules
Ranitidine 50mg/2ml
ARTG 12536

Normal supplies are expected to resume in mid-late September 2016. Supplies of ranitidine 50mg/5ml are not affected. Your HPS Pharmacies pharmacist can advise if this is an appropriate substitute. Alternatively, HPS Pharmacies are still able to source a limited supply of Zantac® 50mg/2ml for the benefit of our clients.

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 Aspen Pharmacare Australia on (02) 8436 8300.

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.
