PHARMAC have announced that the above will occur 1 March 2019.

This affects the following products:-

Acarbose-Mylan Tab 100mg 50 S29    Pharmacode 2560666

Glucobay Tab 50 mg 90                           Pharmacode 289256

Glucobay Tab 100 mg 90                         Pharmcode 289647

The only product available at present is Acarbose-Mylan Tab 100 mg  50 supplied under S29, although we are advised Glucobay will be available late February 2019.

ProPharma / PWR ask that you continue to purchase Acarbose-Mylan until stocks are depleted and the incumbent Glucobay stock are readily available.

Take into account that by dispensing and using the Acarbose-Mylan you generate a better overall margin and profit for your pharmacy and in today’s trading environment every additional $ margin and profit is critical.

Together we can make this a seamless and painless transition.

We thank you in anticipation of your ongoing support.
