Oestradiol valerate (Progynova) tab 2 mg: New look tablet & supply issue
Bayer have advised that their Progynova brand oestradiol valerate 2 mg tablets are changing colour and that there is a brief supply issue.
Supply issue for the 2 mg tablets
Bayer has advised Pharmac that there has been a delay in the next delivery of the 2 mg tablets. There is still a small amount of product at Bayer and in the supply chain with wholesalers. Bayer are managing remaining stocks and expect the issue to be resolved by late January 2022.
The 1 mg tablets are unaffected by this supply issue.
New look 2 mg tablets
The white tablets work the same
All that has changed is the colour of the tablet, from blue to white. The tablets have the same active ingredient and work in the body the same way. The tablets are supplied by the same supplier.
You can expect to see the new look tablet during September.
Note: The 1 mg tablets are unaffected by this change.
