HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Perrigo Australia is discontinuing Diazepam Rectal Solution, as follows:

Diazepam Rectal Solution, 5mL
Diazepam 5mg/5ml

Perrigo has observed an atypical product stability trend with this product which has the potential to affect the product meeting specification over its current shelf life.

Perrigo has considered changes to the product formulation, manufacturing processes, and shelf-life. However, based on the observed stability trend, a robust shelf life which would allow continued production of Diazepam Rectal Solution was not able to be supported.

Retain this notice in a prominent position, including in other related business units for one month. Report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.

Should you require further information regarding this matter, please contact Perrigo Australia on 1800 805 546, or your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies.
