Ozempic Stock Update

by | Apr 10, 2024 | Diabetes, Medicine

Chemist2U has had stock of Ozempic 1.5mL and Ozempic 3mL available since 1st May 2024, even though there has been a shortage of Ozempic supply for a while. The manufacturer has been unable to meet the higher-than-expected demand with their current manufacturing capabilities. (TGA, 2024).  Chemist2U has strong partnerships with suppliers, making sure you get your medication when you need it.

What you need to know 

  • The increased demand is mainly due to an influx of ‘off-label’ Ozempic scripts, meaning Ozempic 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 is continuing to increase their global manufacturing capacity. Their facilities are currently working 24 hours a day, every day, to meet current and future demand.  
  • Chemist2U enjoys supply of Ozempic from our network of pharmacies across Australia, which means we are well-placed to source any available stock for our customers.  
  • Since May 2024, Chemist2U has had stock available of both Ozempic 1.5ml and Ozempic 3ml.

What is the outlook for supply of Ozempic? 

Chemist2U is well supplied with Ozempic thanks to our supplier partners, even though the manufacturer has informed the TGA that there will be limited supply of Ozempic throughout 2024.

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 Ozempic from Chemist2U 

To make sure you get your Ozempic, place your order HERE with your prescription. Your Ozempic will be shipped following the manufacturer’s guidelines, which allows Ozempic to be stored for up to 6 weeks (42 days) at room temperature (not exceeding 30°C). To ensure that room temperature is not exceeded, we ship the medication in an insulated box with a cold pack inside. That way you have the peace of mind of knowing your Ozempic has arrived in perfect condition.

Looking forward
