I have had problems with supply
and substitutions of brand without notifying either myself or the prescribing doctor by a hospital… and only one instance of a shortage from my infusions supplier. I contacted that magazine IG Living? And they had a list of alternatives who could trade off with my supplier if needed, but I my pharmacist found a ‘source’ to trade off with.. This magazine’s staff has been very helpful to me and to at least a dozen others I know of in terms of getting what you need when you need it! Either thru distributors or thru the manufacturers. They are quick to respond to e-mails or to phone #’s truly.
We have to have What We Have To Have. There often can be NO substitutions! Nor should we have to tolerate them.
