New Allegron Likely Before Stocks Run Out; Emergency Supplies of 25mg Tablets Available
Tuesday 27th May 2003
MEDIA RELEASE
Released on behalf of Aspen Pharmacare from Fraser Crossman Communications.


Following the recall of a single batch of Allegron 25mg (batch 82440), made by Pan Pharmaceuticals, four weeks ago, we have received a number of calls from doctors and patients worried about having to change their medication.

I am now pleased to advise you that we anticipate new locally-produced stocks of Allegron will be available in four weeks, prior to existing supplies running out.

As a result we are confident that Allegron patients should not have to be switched to a different medication.

There is still likely to be a shortage of 25mg tablets for the next six to eight weeks, however your doctor may prescribe you Allegron 10mg with an appropriate adjustment to the daily dose.

We know that some patients, for a range of reasons, will have difficulty changing to 10mg tablets, therefore we are holding emergency stocks which can be accessed quickly by doctors for those in need.

If you have any questions at all about your medication, please consult your doctor or psychiatrist.

Please be assured that at Aspen Pharmacare, patient needs are paramount, and we will continue to do everything we can to minimise any inconvenience as a result of this recall.

Yours sincerely
Aspen Pharmacare
