What’s going on with the metformin shortage?

The supply of extended-release metformin is erratic at best, bringing into question a TGA announcement that pharmacists should be able to access four key products.

An announcement on the TGA website states the following are available:

  • DIABEX XR 500 metformin hydrochloride 500mg extended release tablet blister pack;
  • DIAFORMIN XR metformin hydrochloride 500mg extended release tablet blister pack;
  • DIABEX XR 1000 metformin hydrochloride 1000mg extended release tablet blister pack; and
  • DIAFORMIN XR 1000 metformin hydrochloride 1000 mg
