Drug Shortages

Prescription drug shortages are becoming a more common theme in Canada. Shortages affect a large range of medications including oral contraceptives, inhalers, eye drops and tablets. There may be a myriad of reasons for the drug shortages but some common reasons include shortages of raw materials, growing demand, and quality control issues.

Here at Pharmasave Bentall, the pharmacy staff can help you navigate this frustrating reality. We will work closely with your physician to find an appropriate solution. Possible options may be switching to a different medication to achieve the same outcome, compounding the medication in the laboratory, or in some cases we may even be able to source the medication that is currently unavailable.

Facing the possibility of running out of your medications and not having something in place is a frightening prospect. Contact us at Pharmasave Bentall to see what your options are.
