Hi, can anyone shed any light on the manufacturing problem there is at the moment with Sumatriptan injections? I have been using this injection for over 20 years and there has never been a shortage. I have been waiting since July/August and my pharmacy keeps telling me there is a delay/problem with the manufacturers. I have been prescribed the sumatriptan nasal spray for the time being but it isnt as effective as the injection.
I have heard of a brand called Sun Pharma that produces the injection pen all in one (as I normally get the refill packs of sumatriptan) but I wonder if there is a problem with this as well?
I live in Surrey, UK and wondering if anyone else is having problems obtaining this medication and what I can do about it?
