As previously advised there is to be a change in brands with a new listing and funding from 1 December 2015.  Changing from Oxycodone to OxyNorm.

This creates a small issue in current funded product, until 1 December 2015.

We advise:

  • There is no stock of Oxycodone Orion 10mg per ml 1ml Pharmacode 2405687, but
  • There is stock of Oxycodone Orion 10mg per ml, 2ml Pharmacode 2405695.; and
  • OxyNorm is available but only funded from 1 December 2015.

It is a clinical decision and up to pharmacists how they want to dispense.

If a pharmacist has an issue, please contact Trish Mahoney @ Pharmac who will be happy to discuss the situation.
