FDA launches drug shortages mobile app

Recognising the need to provide the public and healthcare professionals with easier access to information on drug shortages the FDA has launched its first mobile app dedicated to the subject.

The FDAs Drug Shortages app, available in free Android and iPhone versions, identify current shortages, those that have been resolved and drugs that have been discontinued.

The apps can be used to report a suspected shortage or supply issue directly to the FDA, as well as to search or browse by a drug’s generic name or active ingredient, and browse by therapeutic category.
