Current Drug Shortages

Drug shortages can have a significant impact on patient care and public health. Drugs in short supply often include sterile injectables and potentially life-saving oncology (cancer) treatments. Besides the lack of effective drug treatment, many other areas of medical care can be impacted, including medical procedure delays, treatment protocol delays, rates of medication errors, patient health outcomes, and cost. Notice from manufacturers to the FDA about impending or current drug shortages allows the FDA to work with the manufacturers to prevent a drastic shortage.

The Drugs.com Current Drug Shortages List is a searchable database that provides up-to-date information for consumers and healthcare professionals related to current drug shortages. Results can be sorted by generic name or latest revision date. Information related to affected product, reason for shortage, available products, estimated resupply dates, and alternative drug therapy is listed for each individual agent.
