The TGA has secured three alternative oral liquid morphine products to compensate for the dwindling supply of Ordine, which is expected to run dry by early 2024.

Ordine — the only registered brand of liquid morphine in Australia — will be withdrawn from sale starting in November because the sponsor, Mundipharma, says its local manufacturer will stop production and finding another is “not commercially viable”.
