Some Serious Drug Shortages in the United States

The bulk export of prescription drugs to the United States is to be prohibited by new regulations in Canada.

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!

This is a follow-up to our newsletters on “The Everything Shortage” and how it can impact your vital prescription drug supply, that some “basic essential medications have been in short supply … for more than a year”, and drug shortages are predicted to worsen while driver and fuel shortages are wreaking havoc on the delivery of pharmaceuticals to pharmacies in the United Kingdom.

The FDA is calling these drug shortages “an urgent public health crisis”.

Numerous media outlets, including the CBS Evening News in a recent segment titled, “Supply chain issues worsen medication shortages” , are now reporting about some serious prescription drug shortages in the United States. The FDA is calling these drug shortages “an urgent public health crisis” and warnings are also being issued about possible over-the-counter medication shortages this year in the United States. NorthWestPharmacy.com customers have a significant advantage when it comes to drug shortages due to our reach and ability to quickly access international sources of medications but we think it is important that customers be aware of the below.

This Isn't Marketing; It is Important Information

As skeptical consumers ourselves, we can appreciate why people might be inclined to believe the information we provide in our newsletters about the factors that impact the supply, pricing and delivery of prescription drugs due to the pandemic is marketing information designed to stimulate sales. But that is not the case at all.

Most of our business comes from orders for long-term prescription maintenance medicines which are typically ordered on a regular schedule by our customers. We have not convinced customers to buy these drugs; their physicians have. Sooner or later, most will come back to order their refills so long as we continue to provide the savings, safety and service our customers deserve and have come to expect from us. Whether a customer orders now or waits a little while does not really impact our sales.

… we tend to report factors affecting prescription drug supply, pricing and delivery logistics before the media does because our direct experience often means we are the first to know.

Our notices about the various factors affecting the supply and delivery of prescription drugs worldwide are for the benefit of customers so they can plan ahead, and whenever possible, be ahead of drug shortages and delivery slowdowns.

The information we provide comes from our extensive direct experience in procuring prescription drugs and arranging delivery logistics. We keep an eye on the media to see if they are reporting matters that validate our direct experience and we provide those articles to you as links. Those who regularly follow our newsletters since the pandemic began can attest that we tend to report factors affecting prescription drug supply, pricing and delivery logistics before the media does because our direct experience often means we are the first to know.

So Please Help Us Continue to Help You

Despite our robust sourcing capabilities and ample current inventory, 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 well 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.

This is even more important as the holiday season approaches because mail systems and customs can become backlogged during this period, which can extend delivery times, and especially during the pandemic.
