Pharmac Metoprolol Update 27 June 2016
As a company we have managed our allocation fairly to all concerned. We moved from Scarce supply which would allow you all to order today and then be supplied the following day (the scarce allocation, which may have been one outer)
After a lot of discussion and consideration we changed to allocation based on your specific previous purchase history. This one change meant that those with greater use of the product would receive a greater proportion.
This worked very well, however it was very dependent on our allocation from the supplier – and believe us we have been let down more often than not.
We will continue to utilise the allocation specification in the future and until the supply issue is resolved. This may well be some months away.
Please note that the Sole Supply for Metoprolol CR is supposed to kick in from 1 November 2016.
