Supply Update

Mylan is experiencing intermittent disruptions in the supply of Hiprex 1mg tablets due to an increase in demand above the normal levels of supply. We are working closely with the manufacturer to manage future stock deliveries so that we achieve a steady state of supply.

In the meantime, this has resulted in normal stock levels not always being available.

With access to medicine a priority, we would like to assure patients that we are doing everything we can to resolve this situation as quickly as possible and only anticipate the current supply issue to continue temporarily.
