A suspended Melbourne pharmacist allegedly stole more than $80,000 of drugs from a company linked to the Essendon AFL club doping scandal.

Shadi Kazeme, who also goes by the name of Sara, appeared before the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Friday on one charge of theft and another of attempted theft.

The 27-year-old allegedly stole vials of human growth hormones, peptides, anabolic steroids and other drugs from Como Compounding Pharmacy in South Yarra between February and June 2015.

The drugs she is accused of stealing are valued at $80,207, according to court documents.

Como Compounding is run by Nima Alavi, the pharmacist who reportedly tipped off police about supplements provided to Essendon in 2014.

Kazeme worked at a controversial vitamin and hydration clinic before she was charged with stealing pharmaceutical products in August last year.

She has had her pharmacist's registration suspended by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

Kazeme is due to return to court in September.
