Drug Shortages Predicted to Worsen

An advocacy group supporting personal prescription drug importation says the U.S. Administration’s plan to combat high drug prices “misses the mark”.

Please do post about us on your social media accounts or forward our new digital booklet to your friends and family who may want to save money on their prescription drugs. A larger customer base grows our volume buying power and reduces our cost of overhead per customer to help keep costs lower for everyone. We sincerely appreciate your continued support!

We recently explained that some “basic medications have been in short supply … for more than a year”. Our last newsletter followed that up, noting that groups in the EU are now warning about rheumatology drug shortages.

… the study has “predicted that the problem would worsen in the future due to the Covid health crisis having increased demand for medicines.”

Today, we point to a study out of France cited in a recent article which states that three-quarters of cancer patients have been affected by cancer drug shortages and that the study has “predicted that the problem would worsen in the future due to the Covid health crisis having increased demand for medicines.” This is reminiscent of similar cancer drug shortages in the United States during the pandemic.

Drug manufacturing supply chains are integrated worldwide so when there are shortages in one part of the world, we are on alert as these shortages can show up in other countries as well.

You Have an Advantage When It Comes to Prescription Drug Shortages

NorthWestPharmacy.com customers have a distinct advantage during times of drug shortages because we have been sourcing products from our approved supply network, which spans several countries, for more than a decade. That way, if there is a shortage in one region for a medication you need, we are often able to quickly shift to one or more of our approved suppliers in other regions to procure your vital prescription drugs and get them on their way to you.

… our customers … were able to get medications through NorthWestPharmacy.com while consumers elsewhere were in a scramble …

Since the pandemic began, many of our customers have experienced firsthand how they were able to get medications through NorthWestPharmacy.com while consumers elsewhere were in a scramble to get those same vital prescription drugs that were unavailable locally and everywhere else they checked. Our procurement team has been working hard to secure continuity and consistency in your medication supply since the pandemic began and we are grateful that these efforts have been paying off.

Our current supply is robust but there are still certain products that cannot be sourced anywhere at this time. We remain in regular communication with customers whose medications are not available, and we do our best to provide the reason for the shortage as well as the ETA.

Please Help Us Continue to Help You

Despite our robust sourcing capabilities, we remain vigilant and persistent in securing prescription drug supplies because things can and do change very quickly when manufacturing issues arise, transportation systems in the drug supply chain falter, or demand for products spikes in various parts of the world. So, we ask our customers to please order in advance. This gives us more time to procure what might be difficult to source inventory and get it shipped to you well before you are going to run out of your supply at home.
