Information from Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (Newsletter Winter 2014)
Anapen 150 (150mcg/0.3mL) and Anapen 300 (300mcg/0.3mL) adrenaline auto-injectors will be out of stock in Australia, and this could continue for the rest of the year.
Distributor Link Healthcare has informed Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia that an updated Anapen presentation with new device features is now available in some European countries. This has affected the production of the current Anapen device registered in Australia.
As a result Link Healthcare can no longer source the currently registered Anapen device. Link Healthcare apologises for the inconvenience, but will work to keep everyone informed.
If you need further information, you can contact their customer service team on 1800 777 005.
Those people prescribed Anapen devices which expire or are used between now and the end of 2014 will need to replace the device with an EpiPen.
