Medicine shortage reports database

The medicine shortage reports database includes information about shortages of reportable medicines in Australia, including those arising from the discontinuation of products.

You can use this page to search for all medicines in shortage and find information about management actions, including supply of overseas alternative medicines.

Information in this database is based on details reported to us by sponsors. Any additional management actions taken by us will be clearly stated.
