Dortim-Arrow Eye drops 2% with Timolol 0.5%; 5 ml OP will be listed in the Pharmaceutical Schedule from 1 October 2015 at a price of $3.45 ex manufacturer.

This is an alternative to Cosopt which will be Reference Priced from 1 December 2015. We have been notified that MSD pricing will not be changing therefore effective from 1 December 2015 there will be a patient surcharge of approximately $20.19 excluding GST.

To minimise risk we will implement automatic substitution as soon as stocks of Cosopt are exhausted.

Dortim-Arrow will be Sole Supply from 1 March 2016
