Browse by Supply Only items
When a product is deleted from the PBS, that product will be available for Supply Only where appropriate. Products that are in a Supply Only state will be available for dispensing, but not for prescribing, usually for a period of up to 12 months from the deletion date.
PBS Prescriptions written prior to the Supply Only period are able to be dispensed using either the Supply Only product where available, or an equivalent product as specified on the PBS schedule. Products flagged as equivalent for substitution will operate in the same manner, whether a product is Listed or in Supply Only. After the Supply Only period, the product will be removed completely from the PBS.
