Drug shortages put Americans health in jeopardy
Currently there continues to be a shortage of emergency medicine drugs that are carried on Ambulances and in the hospitals.


Cardiac drugs
Atropine Sulfate Injection
Digoxin Injection
Diltiazem Injection
Lidocaine
Magnesium Sulfate Injection
Procainamide
Vasopressin Injection

of the above, 4 are firstline cardiac drugs given in the ambulance or hospital for Cardiac arrest or a serious arrhythmia.

Why are so many drugs behind?
are they having problems?

Or is it part of "Population Control"

here is the link to the FDA showing all current shortages of drugs.... [link to www.google.com]

Yeah right.....They have all the money. Theres no reason for them to be behind on production. I hate not having the meds on board a rig and not able to treat them properly.

Glad your not addicted. Even the drug Naloxone, that we give for Opiate overdoses i.e. Heroine, Morphine etc. is in short supply.

In many countries, patients are dying with no pain control whatsoever

[link to www.bbc.co.uk]

Yet according to the World Health Organization, every year more than five million people with cancer die in pain, without access to morphine.

"The fact that what stands between them and the relief of that pain is a drug that costs $2 [£1.25] a week, I think is just really unconscionable," says Meg O'Brien, head of The Global Access to Pain Relief Initiative, a non-profit organisation that advocates for greater access to morphine.

O'Brien says in well-off countries, like the UK and United States, there is enough morphine to treat 100% of people in pain - but in low-income countries, it's just 8%.

In many low- and middle-income countries - 150, by some counts - morphine is all but impossible to get. Some governments don't provide it, or strictly limit it, because of concerns that it will be diverted to produce heroin.

And many doctors are reluctant to prescribe morphine, fearing their patients will become addicted - something that studies have shown rarely happens

More profit that way, who cares about dying people. The war on drugs has set medical science back 50 years.
