URGENT! Supply Issue Suggestions
We are receiving calls and seeing there are starting to be supply issues on some drugs. This is mainly due to stores ordering more as patients are wanting 90 day supplies of their drugs. This is putting a great deal of pressure on the market. McKesson has assured us they are doing everything possible to secure inventory to keep their warehouses stocked.
Many items are starting to be allocated. APSC is working diligently to get a list of the allocated items. In the meantime, we strongly suggest you:
- purchase smaller quantities at a time
- order earlier in the day
- order more frequently
For example, if you need 6 vials of Humalog, order 2 at 9:00 AM, 2 at 10:00 AM and 2 at noon. By ordering smaller quantities earlier and more often, you will catch inventory as it hits the shelf in the warehouse.
