Now Ill probably have to start back at a lower dose when it ever gets back to get back up to speed.

But in the meantime, no control of my type 2.

Wife has been missing several on and off over the last few months and she is on a couple life sustaining meds so its more serious when she runs out.
You ought to be able to find 2.5mg/.5ml. See https://www.accessdata.fda.gov...ide%20Injection&st=c

It keeps happening on my Hydro-codone that I take.

I get different reasons from the pharmacist as to why. At times its a shortage then its only a certain amount is allotted.

Whatever it is its BS. I am in pain and get some relief from the prescribed meds. I have to jump through hoops to do everything required of the prescriber them when I get to the pharmacy they are out.

They are fucking with peoples lives and its getting old.


Hydrocodone ( narcotic analgesic) usually in combination with acetaminophen ( Tylenol) is frequently in short supply. All narcotics are in short supply in the states, because as a nation we use over 90% of the narcotics by prescription used in the entire world. Also the DEA and state regulatory agencies demand multi factor authentication to prescribe these narcotics. For some reason, Americans are very averse to pain and want all pain to go away. Other countries don’t seem to have this issue


I take strong exception to your statement. My late wife was dying from cancer and the requirements to fill her prescriptions for painkillers was unbelievable: only written scripts were acceptable, had to be for only a weeks' supply, and scripts had to be hand carried from doctor to pharmacist. Part of the problem was the former Democratic Governor of Virginia who signed off on Health Department directive that there were no exceptions for end-of-life patients.

It has bugged me since COVID era about pharmacies knowing the diagnoses of the patient. What business is it of theirs? It seems to me (and I'll reserve the right to be ignorant on this, perhaps) that what I'm taking and WHY is between me and the prescribing authority. If they think I should have it, then who is the pharmacist to say otherwise?


I don't think the diagnosis is in the prescription. But Pharmacistss now are doctor level and they know what drugs are prescribed for and what the drugs do.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Another Mounjaro user here. I was not able to get the dosage I needed (5mg) mail order, so I went hunting local pharmacies for it. Was able to get the 2.5mg dose to tide me over until mail order was able to fill my regular dose.
If I'm watching my diet strictly and exercising as I should the lower dose works fairly well. Its a real pain in the ass to have to do this but we do what we have to.
Thanks mjlennon for the link to the FDA site,Will have to keep an eye on this.

We are actually saying pretty much the same thing actually. The onerous requirements put forth by the DEA and state regulatory agencies make it hard to prescribe, and hard for the people who truly need it to get it. In my state the requirement is that all narcotics RX’s must be submitted electronically no written or call in allowed. Which is difficult when I am on call and a patient calls me late at night when I am home or when the computers are down ( there is a tech company that runs most of the electronic communication that goes from practitioner to pharmacy, and not too long ago they had a major bug and you couldn’t send to half the pharmacies in the state, which is difficult in rural communities that might only have one or two in town. The same agencies that are making it difficult for everyone involved are the same agencies 20 years ago that advocated pain as the 5th vital sign, and we jumping up and down pressuring practitioners to give more narcotics!

Many of these medications come from China and India. What could possibly go wrong?

I switched to Vyvanse because Concerta ER kept being backordered. My Vyvanse has been backordered twice in 6 months.
