These Are the Drugs America Is Running Short On

It has been a long time since Americans have faced significant numbers of shortages in the goods they normally buy. As Thanksgiving approaches, it is clear that some foods traditionally used for the holiday either are not available or are in low supply that has driven their prices much higher than they were last year. The list of shortages covers a wide variety of items people can usually buy with ease, everything from clothing to cars. Two problems have triggered many of these shortages. One is a lack of workers in key industries. Another is clogged supply chains that, among other things, have left hundreds of cargo ships outside America’s biggest ports. [in-text-ad] Supply chain shortages extend to medications. According to Healthline: The disruption in the nation’s supply chain is reportedly creating shortages for several drugs, including those used to treat cancer and COVID-19. In all, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) now lists more than 100 medications that are in short supply. The American Medical Association told CBS News the drug shortage is an “urgent public health crisis” that “threatens patient care and safety.” [nativounit] Data for the FDA’s “Current and Resolved Drug Shortages and Discontinuations Reported to FDA” report are updated daily. The agency’s Drug Shortages Staff reviews manufacturer information and identifies those “currently in shortage.” These are the 108 drugs on that shortages list: Generic Name or Active Ingredient
