handle the methylprednisolone drug shortage
Technicians are struggling to handle the methylprednisolone drug shortage.
People take this "steroid" to get inflammation under control quickly...such as after a severe allergic skin reaction. Plus it's often given as a "taper"...going from a high to lower dose over days or weeks. This helps avoid problems from stopping the drug too fast.
Now methylprednisolone is hard to come by. It's just the latest shortage to hit pharmacies...and impacts generic methylprednisolone dose packs, tablets, and some injectables.
