Mounjaro Stock Update

by | Apr 10, 2024 | Diabetes, Medicine

Mounjaro Stock Availability 

As you may know, there’s been a bit of a hiccup with Mounjaro stock availability lately, and we understand how frustrating it can be to wait for your medication.  

At Chemist2U, we’re here to make medication easy. That’s why we’re keeping you informed of the latest stock situation as we work hard to get more supply of Mounjaro.  

What you need to know 

  • The increased demand is mainly due to an influx of ‘off-label’ Mounjaro scripts, meaning Mounjaro is being prescribed for reasons other than its approved use by the Therapeutics Goods Administration ie. treatment of type 2 diabetes.   
  • Off-label use is legal in Australia as it is up to your doctor what they prescribe.   
  • The manufacturer has said they are replenishing stock in Australia as quickly as possible, and have broadened their manufacturing capacity to help patients with type 2 diabetes. This includes: starting to produce incretin at their North Carolina manufacturing facility; and expanding their other sites around the globe. 
  • Chemist2U has enjoyed supply of Mounjaro from our network of pharmacies across Australia since 1st May 2024. Chemist2U have good supply of lower dose Mounjaro, despite the TGA’s advice that there is limited stock.

If your script is for a lower dose of Mounjaro, upload your script and receive delivery within 5 business days.  

What is the outlook for supply of Mounjaro? 

Chemist2U is well supplied with lower doses of Mounjaro thanks to our network of pharmacies, despite the manufacturer advising that there will be limited availability of all doses of Mounjaro until 31 August 2024. To read more on Mounjaro supply, see the TGA’s updates here. 

We understand the challenges this shortage may have posed for you in accessing your medication, and we continue to use the power of our network of pharmacies to source the medication you need. 

Ordering Mounjaro from Chemist2U 

To make sure you get your higher dose Mounjaro when there is more stock available, place your order HERE. You won’t be charged until the stock becomes available. When it is available, we will notify you, and send a payment link to complete the payment within 24 hours. If you find Mounjaro available elsewhere before we can restock, rest assured that your prescription remains valid.
