Thank you for your continued support of the Take Home Naloxone (THN) Program.
As you may be aware, there is currently a shortage on some naloxone products. Therefore, you may be experiencing difficulty sourcing various naloxone products at this time. The Department of Health and Aged Care acknowledges the continued pressure that pharmacies and Authorised Alternative Suppliers may be experiencing and is working with sponsors for affected products to provide updates on stock availability and management actions.
Please note however, that the Pharmacy Programs Administrator (PPA) has no visibility on stock levels held by wholesalers. The PPA is therefore unable to advise on where to obtain more stock for your service. During the shortage, you may be able to supply an alternative brand or presentation that is available.
Information on the reported shortages is published on the TGA website. Please check this website regularly for the latest information.
