S8 Note - This prescription item is Schedule 8 and can only be supplied on a script from a registered doctor in Queensland. Any prescriptions from any other state cannot be filled and will be returned in the mail

This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

(SmithKline Beecham)

What is in this leaflet
This leaflet answers some of the common questions about Maxolon. It does not contain all the available information. It does not
take the place of talking to the doctor or pharmacist.

All medicines have risks and benefits. The doctor has weighed the possible risks of taking Maxolon against the expected benefits.

Use Maxolon as instructed. If you have any concerns about using this medication, talk to the doctor or pharmacist.

Keep this leaflet until treatment with Maxolon is finished. You may want to read it again.
What Maxolon is used for
Maxolon contains metoclopramide as the active ingredient.

Maxolon helps control nausea and vomiting caused by infectious diseases, migraine, kidney disease, childbirth, other
medications, cancer, or following surgery, chemotherapy or radiation treatment.

Maxolon is also used to activate stomach contractions in conditions where there is a need to encourage normal passage of food
through the stomach and intestines.

Maxolon is used together with X-rays to help diagnose problems of the stomach and/or intestine. It is also used to assist with
passing a tube into the intestine.

Maxolon works by blocking the action of a chemical in the brain which causes nausea and vomiting. Maxolon also acts in the
stomach and upper intestine to increase muscle contractions.

The doctor may have prescribed Maxolon for another reason. Ask the doctor if you have any questions about why Maxolon has
been prescribed for you (or your child).

There is no evidence that Maxolon is addictive.
