Can you access the medications you need?
Thousands of Americans who take regular medication have faced this issue – their medication is out of stock at every local pharmacy and they are running out. Can you access the medications you may need? Drug shortages can adversely affect drug therapy, compromise or delay medical procedures, and result in medication errors.
Medications may become unavailable for a variety of reasons. Some reasons being:
- Back-ordered due to a manufacturing problem
- Discontinued due to decreased usage or declining manufacturer profits, which may be related to the introduction of a newer drug
- Drugs may also be withdrawn from the market due to health risks, and we do not compound medications that were discontinued due to safety concerns.
At Johnson Compounding & Wellness, we help to alleviate these problems by providing doctors and patients a readily available source for back-ordered products and compounded medications. Filling this void is just one of the reasons why compounding pharmacies are a vital component of the healthcare system. As shortages occur manufacturers inform the FDA, who then post it to their FDA website drug shortage list. Communication between the FDA and the public is an essential component of preventing and mitigating drug shortages.
