No, there isn't a general shortage, per se, but there are other factors that may be at play.

The first is that there are limits on how much any pharmacy can order in and have in stock each month. Until recently, pharmacies weren't following such guidelines, but the DEA has started cracking down this year to make them abide by the regulations.

And the second issue is that the FDA has requested that the Acetaminophen in all of these combination medications be lowered to a maximum of 325mgs per dose, due to the risk of toxicity that can be associated with overdose and the liver/damage or failure that can be caused from long-term use of high amounts. Some manufacturers have already begun to implement the change and the rest are expected to have it completed by January of 2014, thus, there's just less of a supply available on the market and, in a few months, it will no longer be available, at all.

The only suggestion I can make is that you talk to your doctor about using an alternative medication in the meantime.

Is there anything else I can help with?
