This may continue to occur until into the new year. There are shortages most years during the last few months and there is really nothing that can be done about them.

There are mandatory yearly manufacturing limits based on the demand for any given controlled substance in the prior year. Each manufacturer is given a certain allotment that they are allowed to produce that year and, once they have hit that amount, manufacturing has to cease until the new year, when they receive their new allotment number.

It's a method used to help better control how much of any substance there is to keep track of, in hopes that it will help prevent theft and diversion.

You might be better off checking what your pharmacist does have in stock and then talking to your doctor about using it as an alternative medication in the meantime.

Has anyone else had luck finding it?

There's probably no real shortage - the DEA's simply put quotas on the quantity of every narcotic pharmacy dispenses Ask your pharmacist - Is there a shortage or have they simply hit their allotted quota for the month ? Outrageous , but that's exactly what pain patients and pharmacies are dealing with in Tennesssee. The DEA promises constant audits and other pleasantries for doctors and pharmacists who don't follow their "suggestios" or rules : These aren't laws But, my pharmacist laments - the DEA is like the IRS- you do what they say and try to avoid any further contact no matter how unfair and absurd the dictates. Here in Tennesssee it's DEA who's dictating patient care not doctors. Those are facts.
