I was at University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor, MI yesterday to see my Neurosurgeon. His Nurse said she had received an email on Friday, Feb 20th stating there is going to be an Oxycontin shortage. She said the email did not state a reason for this but was being sent out to the medical profession warning them that the HOSPITAL could run short of Oxycontin within weeks time. She was very concerned about this and advised me to call my Pain Dr. ASAP.
I am on Oxy currently and have been having a heck of a time finding my 40 my ER's as it was. I am getting a refil on Friday, I hope? I am going to call some pharmacies today.
