TGA Advice on sertraline shortages
The anti-depressant Sertraline is in short supply in Australia. The TGA has more advice.
The TGA has recently published a web statement about shortages of sertraline 50mg and 100mg tablets.
To reduce the impact of these shortages on patients, we have:
approved the supply of alternative overseas-registered products under section 19A of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989, and
issued a Serious Shortage Substitution Notice (SSSN) for sertraline tablets
