why backorder

Ziac 5/6.25 mg Mylan Generic l have been taking this medication about 3 yrs now and become therapeutic, but 2 months ago l went to walmart for refill and was given Unichem generic which l have being reacting badly to it. CVS told me they have it, l switched but only gave me 15 days worth and now saying is back ordered or may be discontiuned. What is going on with our healthcare, is it all about american company or the benefit patient derive. lf it is necessary to switch generic brands then they should evaluate the potent and effectiveness of the new generic before putting it on the market ## Unfortunately, under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, the FDA allows generics to differ from the name brand by as much as plus, or minus 20% of the active ingredients. The FDA considers that to be an a... ...

Ritalin backorder

Why are the manufacturers allowed to put a specific medicine that is used by millions of children and their bodies are adjusted to the meds to be put on backorder across the United States? What are the parents supposed to do in order to handle their autistic children with ADHD because the manufacturers want to be less than efficient, thereby causing additional medical problems. ## I'm sorry that you're having a problem and I do understand your concern about your child, but in some cases, this isn't something that can be prevented. Even if the FDA and DEA tried to demand that it never happen, there is no way that could actually be guaranteed and it would most likely just scare more companies out of the prescription manufacturing business. The reason for this one is listed as ... ...

Adderall on backorder
615 Replies RSS
I take generic Adderall 20 mg for narcolepsy and there is not one local pharmacy that has it in stock. I have never had this problem before. The pharmacies are saying that it's on backorder from the manufacturer. Is anyone else having problems getting their scripts filled? ## I live in Southern NH. I can't find a pharmacy anywhere around here that can get Adderall in any dose from Teva and Barr Pharmaceuticals. My psychiatrist was apparently completely unaware of this situation when he wrote the prescription earlier today, 10/18/2011. I run out in 4 days but am on a very low dose (5mg twice a day) so I may be able to wean off of it safely by cutting back to 5mg once a day, then nothing. I wonder how many people taking higher doses are goint to have major problems with withdrawal... ...

Ritalin Suppliers Backordered
1 Reply RSS
Seems that most of the generic Ritalin manufacturers are back ordered. All the pharmacies I have called are out. Is there another medication I can request from my doctor. I take 20mg 3X daily ## Have you tried actually going to the pharmacies, with your prescription in hand to see if they have it in stock? Since Ritalin is a controlled substance, a phone call will usually not get you an accurate answer, because they have no way of knowing if the person on the other end of the line is a legitimate customer with a need, or a potential thief. Otherwise, the alternatives, such as Adderall, may also be difficult to find, as we've had similar complaints from people that need to fill their prescriptions for it, as well. ...

Is there something I can substitute four them. I have severe pain and have been on pain meds for 20 yrs. I do not take more than prescribed or sell my meds.

I have read so many people posting that they can't get their pain meds. What is scary is people who are in chronic pain, are now in danger of withdrawal. My roommate has had her 5/325 on backorder for 3 week's now We're in Vegas, I to take pain meds and last month I went to Walgreen's like normal and they were out of my meds, to boot the pharmacist treated me in such rude behavior. I see my doctor tomorrow and I'm scared of having a problem finding my meds, but since reading and listing I back up on mine and have been biting the bullet in pain. I have even heard through a friend that they will hit the streets for meds. This is scary cause it's going to effect the world.

2 Replies RSS
The pharmacy said that my original ratio of oxycodone/apap was on backorder and they sent me sandoz oxycodone instead. I am having a constant dull headache since the substitution. Could this be the cause? ## Headaches can be a normal side effect of this medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, constipation, and dry mouth. How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications? ## I stopped the subscription and am awaiting my regularly prescribed meds. Pharmacy said the binder of the pills are different, not the main ingredient, but it is reacting so I will await my old drug. Thanks for posting. ...

Ampheta S Combo

I am trying to find out who manufactures this medication. I have been to my pharmacy multiple times and keep being told it is on backorder. Under normal situations I would just look elsewhere but my insurance company insists I use only this pharmacy. I need to contact the manufacturer to see if there is a remedy for this ongoing situation. ## The mixed Amphetamine Salts is actually a generic product, so it is made by several different companies, so I really have no way of knowing who made the one that you were receiving from your pharmacy. However, from what I am reading on the FDA Drug Shortages page, all 3 major manufacturers have reported shortages in their supply, though there is no detailed explanation as to why. These manufacturers are Shire, which makes the name brand, Teva and G... ...

Info on Nuvigil

Does anyone have any idea why Nuvigl is frequently in very short supply and so often on backorder at local pharmacies? Have heard the rumor that Nuvigil is being discontinued. Does anyone have any facts? Thank you for any information. ## Towards the end of the year, such shortages are usually due to mandatory manufacturing limits, additionally, there are limits to how much any pharmacy can order and keep in stock. Learn more Nuvigil details here. However, I don't know of anything official that states that this medication is being discontinued. What local pharmacies are you using? ## Thank you so much for the Nuvigil info. Considering what a "popular"medication it seems to be,I would think that the discontinued rumor is just that. Our pharmacy told me to check back w/them aro... ...

i need a pharmacy that will fill my Rx for dilaudid #8 ## why is diluadid on backorder and when will it be available in columbus, ohio? ## I'm sorry, the only thing I can guess as to why it is on backorder has to do with some recent changes made by the FDA. Some companies have been marketing unnapproved versions of these medications and they have made them remove them from the market until they undergo product quality and safety tests. This has affected many drugs on the market in the past few months. There have been several posts about this one our site, as well as many others, even nurses in hospitals have mentioned getting notifications from their pharmacies regarding a shortage. That said, I am sorry, I have no information for you on when it will be available again in ANY area. ... ...

Klonopin brand name

I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled? ## Hello, Bonita! How are you? Yes, there seems to a shortage due to a recent sale of the manufacturer, but I can't find anything for sure on when it will be resolved. If you can't take the generic, then the best thing to do may be to speak with your doctor and try an alternative in the meantime, such as Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could caus... ...

What is going on? ## I have no information on why there is a shortage, but there is one currently reported by Sandoz, they list it as being backordered. Have you spoken to your doctor? They may be able to suggest an alternative medication, or prescribe separate tablets of the Bisoprolol and Hydrochlorothiazide. ...

trying to locate dilaudid 8 mg ## i have a script for dilaudid 8 mg. they are backordered in Md. where can i get it filled?? ## I am not too familiar with pharmacies in MD, but I do know from when I lived there for a short time, that it was very hard to get narcotics prescriptions filled, I usually had to look for a pharmacy that specialized in pain management medications, as most regular drug stores didn't keep them in stock. Finding these types of controlled medication online can also be difficult. Have you tried calling around to see if anyone in your area has it? Since I don't know exactly what area of MD you are in, it is hard for me to even try and suggest somewhere. To the original poster, are you in MD as well or somewhere else?

Where can i find levorphanol? I have a prescription to br filled for 180 2 mg pills and was told by my pharmacy it was on backorder from the manufacturer and they do not know when it will be available. Is there shortage as of 2/2016? Is there more than one manufacturer? ## No problem filling in San Francisco. From what I'm understanding, Roxanne sold levorphanol to another pharmaceutical company and there was a price increase. Also, another pharma is currently working on a extended release form of the drug... ## The FDA doesn't list there being a shortage, but companies aren't required to report them, either. It's just an optional thing. This medication is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizzin... ...

opana 40mlg er generic
3 Replies RSS
As of june 26,2013 Do they still have available the generic opana 40mlg er on stock or backorder at pharmacies in Sacramento,ca.....?? ## Hi Frank, Unfortunately there's no real way of knowing what any pharmacies have in stock at any given moment. Inventories constantly change on a moment to moment basis as patients fill prescriptions and pick up orders. Calling them generally isn't recommend either, since many pharmacists are trained to say no to a stranger on the phone asking for narcotics. So one would essentially have to go in person (with your script in hand) to a particular pharmacy in order to ask if they have what you need in stock. I hope this helps! ## Yeah i do understand About people calling asking the pharmacy if they have a certain narcotic but they should be able ... ...
