A suspended Melbourne pharmacist has faced court over allegations she stole drugs from a pharmacy last year
Sara Shadi Kazeme, who is the director of the controversial iv.me hydration clinics, appeared before Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Friday 5 August on one charge of theft and another of attempted theft.
According to court documents, prosecutors are alleging the 27-year-old stole vials of human growth hormones, peptides, anabolic steroids and other drugs from Como Compounding Pharmacy in South Yarra between February and June last year.
The drugs Kazeme is accused of stealing are valued at $80,207.
She was charged with stealing the pharmaceutical products in August last year and has since had her AHPRA pharmacist registration suspended.
Kazeme was already in the media spotlight early this year, after iv.me’s Sydney-based clinic was closed by NSW Health when a client who received an intravenous treatment ended up in hospital suffering fever, abdominal pains and low blood pressure.
iv.me is now listing just one clinic open in South Yarra.
