Product Overview Every healthcare institution is sure to feel the effects of drug shortages in the coming months; in fact, the amount of drug shortages has more than tripled since 2005. Approximately 80% of these products were sterile injectable medications. The shortages lead to increased cost for pharmacies to meet patient and physician needs, and much of the financial impact is felt in acute care divisions. Cantrell Drug Company offers compounded solutions to many of these drug shortages. We are currently providing many of the “hard to find” products. Testimonial “Cantrell Drug Company has been a lifesaver when it comes to drug shortages. A quick e-mail to Cantrell, and more often than not, they are able to provide the needed product. A couple of weeks ago, our metoclopramide injection supply was critically low. Cantrell saved the day by providing what commercial vendors could not. I am confident that the products we receive from Cantrell Drug Company are sterile and accurate because of the rigorous quality control tests that are performed on every batch. It is comforting to know that Cantrell Drug Company will provide a quality product at a fair price.” –– Angela N.
