Codeine rescheduling

In December 2016, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) made the decision that medicines containing codeine will only be available with a prescription from 1 February 2018.

These changes will have a significant impact on the daily practice of pharmacists, not just leading up to but following the changes.

The PSA codeine resource hub will provide members with a suite of education and resources to support you through these changes, and improve the health of all Australians. We will also keep you updated on the work that PSA is doing to support members through the transition of codeine to a Prescription Only medicine.

our vision: Improving Australia's health through excellence in pharmacist care
