Please HELP! Forgot to pick up Olaparib script and need tonight's dose (have script) MELBOURNE

Hi all,

My mother forgot to pick up her Olaparib script at Peter Mac today and she desperately needs tonight's dose. Wondering if anyone who lives in Melbourne or surrounds could lend her two tablets tonight and she'll replace them tomorrow. Apparently you can't get it at any normal pharmacies and all the hospital pharmacies are closed. She's based in the South East but willing to travel. We just found out the medication is working (her CA125 dropped 130 points in a month from 180 to 50!) and we were so excited she completely forgot to get the script filled.

Thank you so much for your assistance.


  • Hi Ellen35,

    I live in QLD just for future if this ever happens again just head to the nearest Dr surgery and they should be able to supply you with a script or into the closest hospital that has an Oncology ward and see if they can help. As everyone who has Ovarian Cancer are all on different treatments it would be really hard to find anyone with the same medication. Sometimes you can also call the Dr and they can email a script through to the closest chemist for you to pick up the medications. Such great news for your mum congratulations have a great day and a very Merry Christmas and a very very Happy New Year.
