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

What Aurorix is used for
The name of your medicine is Aurorix. It contains the active ingredient called moclobemide.

Aurorix belongs to a group of medicines called antidepressants. Antidepressants are used to treat depression and work on the central nervous system. They are thought to work by their action on brain chemicals called amines, which are involved in controlling mood.

There are many different types of medicines used to treat depression. Aurorix belongs to a group of medicines called reversible inhibitors of monoamine oxidase A (RIMA).

Your doctor, however, may have prescribed Aurorix for another purpose. Ask your doctor if you have any questions why Aurorix has been prescribed for you.

This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.

Before you take Aurorix

Do not take Aurorix if:

* you have ever had an allergic reaction to Aurorix or any of the ingredients listed in the Ingredients section of this leaflet

* you are suffering from severe confusion

* you are taking clomipramine (Anafranil) or selegiline (Eldepryl)

* Taking Aurorix with the above medicines may cause a serious reaction called serotonin syndrome. This can cause a sudden increase in body temperature, high blood pressure and convulsions.

Do not take Aurorix after the expiry date (EXP) printed on the pack.

It may have no effect at all or, worse, an entirely unexpected effect if you take it after the expiry date.

Do not take Aurorix if the packaging is torn or shows signs of tampering or if the tablets appear damaged in some way.

If you are not sure if you should be taking Aurorix, talk to your doctor.

You must tell your doctor if:

1. you are allergic to any other medicines, foods, dyes or preservatives

2. you have any other health problems including:

* liver disease

* high blood pressure

* mental illness other than depression

* thyrotoxicosis (a condition of excessive thyroid hormones)

* phaeochromocytoma (a rare tumour of adrenal gland)

3. you are pregnant or intend to become pregnant

4. you are breastfeeding or wish to breastfeed

Your doctor will discuss the risks and benefits of using Aurorix when pregnant and while breastfeeding.

Taking other medicines

Tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines including any that you have bought from a pharmacy, supermarket or healthfood shop.

Some commonly used medicines that may interfere with Aurorix are

* cimetidine (Tagamet)

* dextromethorphan

* pethidine

* serotonin agonists (eg buspirone, sumatriptan)

Other antidepressant medicines may interfere with Aurorix such as fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline, amitryptyline and nortriptyline.

Moclobemide may cause an additional drop in blood pressure if you are taking metoprolol.

Your doctor or pharmacist has a complete list of medicines to avoid while taking Aurorix.

If you have not told your doctor about any of the above, tell them before you start taking Aurorix.

How to take Aurorix
Use Aurorix exactly as your doctor has prescribed.

How much to take

Your doctor will tell you how many Aurorix tablets to take each day.

The usual dose is between 300 mg and 600 mg per day. The tablets are taken twice daily after meals.

How to take it

Tablets should be swallowed whole with a glass of water.

You should follow your doctor's instructions carefully if changing from one antidepressant to another and report any unexpected effects if they occur.

When to take it

Aurorix should be taken morning and evening at the end of your meal.

How long to take Aurorix

For depression, the length of treatment will depend on how quickly your symptoms improve. Most antidepressants take time to work so don't be discouraged if you don't feel better right away. Some of your symptoms may improve in 1 or 2 weeks but it can take up to 4 or 6 weeks to feel any real improvement. Even when you feel well, you will usually have to take Auror
