Medicine Shortages Information Initiative

Critical medicine shortages and other information

This webpage provides information about shortages of reportable medicines in Australia, including those arising from the discontinuation of products. Improved monitoring and communication will assist patients to be aware of a shortage and to obtain timely advice and support from a health professional. In some situations, they may be able to recommend alternative treatments.

On this page: Further Information | Browse CRITICAL shortages

From January 2019, sponsors are required to report all shortages of reportable medicines. The TGA then mandatorily publishes information about all shortages that have a critical patient impact (see Browse CRITICAL shortages below). Information about medium or low impact shortages may also be published where the sponsors agree to it or if the TGA determines that it is in the interest of public health (to view choose ‘display ALL medicines shortages’ below).

This information is based on details provided in the notifications submitted by sponsors. Any additional shortage management actions taken by the TGA will be identified as such.

It is important to note that sometimes disruptions to supply cannot be avoided. The problem of medicine shortages is not unique to Australia. Mandatory reporting of medicine shortages will not prevent these disruptions.

Please note, while a medicine may be in shortage, supply may not be completely exhausted and it may still be available from your pharmacy. If you have any questions or concerns about supply, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
