Drug shortages are unfortunately occurring in the US with increasing frequency, and they are something we take very seriously because of the negative impact on patient care. As a provider of critical pharmaceutical products, we understand the important responsibility and role we have in helping to alleviate shortage situations.
When faced with a shortage, we work collaboratively with our partners, regulators and suppliers, with urgency, to ensure the product in short supply is made available to patients as quickly as possible. In these situations, our aim is to serve our customers and ensure that patients are getting the medicines they need. This typically entails adding shifts in our manufacturing facilities, prioritizing the products in short supply and staying in close contact with our customers and the FDA’s Office of Drug Shortages.
