Levemire shortage

I stopped by the pharmacy today to get some diabetic supplies. Among the things I needed was a box of Levemire flexpens. They didn’t have any, he called 3 other pharmacys, they didn’t have any either. He said he could get them by tomorrow, but to call ahead to make sure.

When I got home I checked the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee list of Medicine Shortages, and sure enough Levemire is on the list.

I still have one almost full pen, enough to last for 3 weeks so no problem. I only use the Levemire when I an not using my OmniPod pump, about half the time.

Sorry, my goof. That shortage list is for the UK. The shortage at my pharmacy must be a local supply problem.
