Access to drug shortage information is now easier and faster. FDA has developed an app that allows users to quickly identify current drug shortages, resolved shortages, and discontinuations of drug products. This app was developed to accelerate public access to important – and sometimes critical -- information about drug shortages. The application uses a searchable database to provide real-time information to key stakeholders, including health care practitioners and pharmacists. The app:

• helps health care practitioners make quick decisions about patient treatment
• allows users to search for a generic name or active ingredient, and browse by alphabetic list or therapeutic category
• provides information on how to report a shortage or supply issue, and links to other resources from FDA and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP).


Requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
