Amendment of fluoxetine 30mg capsules Serious Shortage Protocol (SSP)

The Serious Shortage Protocol (SSP) for fluoxetine 30mg capsules (SSP02) is being extended to 18 December, 2019. Please also note that this SSP has been changed, so pharmacists now supply fluoxetine 10mg capsules instead of tablets i.e. 1 x 10mg fluoxetine capsule, plus 1 x 20mg fluoxetine capsule.

The SSP for fluoxetine 40mg capsules (SSP03) will expire after 20 November as scheduled.
