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

If you have any concerns about taking Serc, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

All medicines have risks and benefits. Your doctor has weighed the risks of you taking Serc against the benefits they expect it will
have for you.

Keep this leaflet with the medicine.

You may need to read it again.
What Serc is used for
Serc is used to treat a disorder of the working of your inner ear. This disorder may include one or more of the following symptoms,
in one or both ears:

- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)

- Loss of clear hearing

- Problems with balance (vertigo)

These symptoms may also be associated with nausea, vomiting and headache. Often these symptoms together are referred to as
Méniere's Syndrome.

Based on animal studies, the active ingredient of Serc tablets, betahistine dihydrochloride, works by improving the blood flow of the
inner ear and restoring it to normal. It also acts on the nerve endings in the inner ear to normalise the way in which the nerves
respond to outside influences.

Your doctor may have prescribed Serc for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Serc has been
prescribed for you.

There is no evidence that Serc is addictive.

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