Shortages of critical medications are rising in the United States.
According to a new report released on Wednesday, children’s medication, antibiotics and treatment for ADHD are among a number of drugs that have been in short supply in recent months.
The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee says from 2021 to 2022, new drug shortages increased by nearly 30%.
Committee Chairman Gary Peters says, “These shortages, which reached a peak of 295 individual drugs in shortage at the end of 2022, have left health care professionals grappling with limited resources to treat patients in need.”
