As our Oz customers will know the Australian TGA is changing things slightly come 1st October meaning that you are required to have a prescription to “legally” import nicotine from this date onwards – in theory this is already the case in most states of Australia, so you can see how well this is going to be policed ………
Never the less we want to make sure that all of our Oz Fam are covered and still able to import nicotine from international suppliers like ourselves, rather than being ripped off by Big Pharma in Australian chemists.IS NICOTINE BEING BANNED?
CAN I STILL “LEGALLY” IMPORT & USE NICOTINE IN AUSTRALIA?
Yes, as long as you have a prescription from October 1st.
WILL MIXOLOGY CONTINUE SHIPPING TO AUSTRALIA?
Yes of course – we can’t assess whether you a have a prescription or not so we will have to assume you do – basically it will be business as usual from our end.
Although unnecessary, you can now upload your prescriptions during checkout – found below the “place order” button.
WHERE/HOW DO I GET A PRESCRIPTION?
There is good news on this front and our friends at ATHRA (Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association) have done all the leg work for you.
On this page you will find local Doctor’s in your state who will be able to prescribe nicotine for you to keep you on the right side of “The Man”. There is a new prescriber list from the TGA also which we hope will be continuously updated.
We have had a really good chat with Colin Mendelsohn from ATHRA this week and he has suggested speaking with your local GP first (Remember Telehealth can be claimed through Medicare) and if no luck there, make contact with the following Doctors or Clincs (all linked) who will be more than happy to help:
