Medical Product Supply Updates
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) publishes information about medical product shortages on its website https://www.tga.gov.au/safety/shortages
A medicine shortage occurs when there is unlikely to be enough of a medicine in Australia for the people who need to take it. Suppliers must report shortages of prescription medicines and a small number of over-the-counter medicines to the TGA. Each shortage listed on the TGA medicine shortages reports page refers to a single product. There are usually alternative brands, strengths or dose forms of the same medicine available.
