National Albuterol Shortage


My husband has had asthma his whole life and depends on respiratory drugs like albuterol to keep himself healthy. Right now, there's a national shortage, and I've already been informed by two different pharmacies that they can't get it and don't know when they will get it. Luckily, he has lots of Hispanic friends who willingly pick up medication for him when they travel to Mexico. We keep a backup supply for times like this. But, I'm scared for the people who don't have that option. They will end up in the hospital unnecessarily or die. This is a disgraceful example of what's happening in our medical/pharmaceutical system. And real people are suffering as a result.
