JUCM News reported nearly a month ago on a scarcity of oral presentations of amoxicillin and clavulanate. Now, as we enter the season of large gatherings in close quarters, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists reports that 29 products from Aurobindo, Hikma, Morton Grove Pharmaceuticals, Sandoz, and Teva are all continuing to report shortages for undisclosed reasons. Resupply dates vary by supplier, but across the board fulfilment could happen anywhere from late November to early January. Patients will likely be frustrated if they receive prescriptions they can’t fill, so it would be advisable to check product availability before writing for any affected medications.
Update: Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Products Will Continue to Be in Short Supply
