HPS Pharmacies wish to advise that Link Healthcare have given notice of ongoing supply difficulties for both available brands of imipramine as follows:
Imipramine tablets x 50
The international manufacturing plant has been forced to close during a major expansion and reaccreditation project. This has resulted in their inability to maintain consistent supplies in the short term, but will mean improved services after the facility is reopened.
Both strengths of Tofranil® tablets, and Tolerade® tablets 25mg, are currently unavailable and are not expected again before January 2014. A large order of Tolerade® tablets 10mg will be delivered within the next two days, which is expected to meet demands until supplies return to normal.
HPS Pharmacies will provide updates as necessary regarding supply, as the information available is changing daily.
Please retain this notice in a prominent position, including other related business units for one month in case stock is in transit. Report any problems identified with medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the TGA.
Should you require further information regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact your pharmacist at HPS Pharmacies or Link Healthcare on 02 8401 9777.
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.
