FDA Can’t Handle Drug Shortages, and in Some Cases, is Causing them

Drug Shortages: A Deadly Problem With No Cure in Sight – DailyFinance.

Pharmer’s going to be featuring some articles describing what is seen in the hospitals in the past couple of years……….. ever worsening shortages of chemotherapeutic and injectable drugs.   This has become a severe public health problem due to inability to treat some cancers, and   unnecessary deaths due to unavailable treatments or errors involving drugs used as substitutes.

Here is the American Society of Hospital Pharmacists drug shortage management resource center.

Pharmer thinks this problem has several underlying causes : supply and demand, need to import raw materials,  economic pressures, taxes,  outsourcing, government incompetence, an increasingly useless FDA, natural selection, and death panel philosophy.

The last factor curbs  government enthusiasm for addressing the drug shortage problem vigorously.   Increased deaths lighten the load on social security, medicare and medicaid, and therefore  the shortages  become a means of obamacare  cost control.
