  • Drug Shortage Update

    Naprosyn Suspension and Prednisone 1mg tab format

    Ongoing drug shortages continue to plague us. Currently the supply of Naprosyn suspension (used extensively in pediatrics) has completely ceased abruptly and the CRA, ORA and various pediatric groups are pressing for the return of this valuable therapeutic product or the immediate availability of an acceptable alternative. In addition, the maker of a large percentage of Prednisone 1 mg tablets ceased to produce it abruptly. Winpred 1 mg from AA Pharma may become available mid March, so stay tuned and we will let you know if/when it is in Ontario pharmacies.
