Unavailable Medications

Occasionally medications approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) become unavailable. This can occur for four main reasons:

  • The manufacturer has discontinued production as the consumer base is small and manufacture is unprofitable.
  • The manufacturer has developed a new drug they believe to be superior to the older version.
  • The drug is very popular and the manufacturer cannot keep up to demand.
  • The manufacturer is having technical issues with producing the medication.
