Shortages Galore!

FDA responds to potential drug shortages by taking actions to address their underlying causes and to enhance product availability. FDA determines how best to address each shortage situation based on its cause and the public health risk associated with the shortage by working with firms to address any potential risks to keep medically necessary products available while also ensuring there is not going to be harm to patients associated with the quality issues.


To minimize emails, the FDA will be sending out notifications on a less often basis for shortages and recalls. To this end, the following link will take you to the shortage database. The database can be searched multiple ways. We will be providing information monthly of more commonly used ASC related medications.
