I read about a shortage of Coreg on another board and thought it was important to share with you. Coreg is often prescribed for people with Congestive Heart Failure. This is not to scare anyone, but to make you aware, too. The article says that this should be a short term problem and remedied shortly. There is also another drug that can be prescribed in it's place called Toprol. Is anyone here having problems getting their Coreg? I'm taking 6.25 mg 2 x day.
"CHICAGO, Jan 11 (Reuters) - GlaxoSmithKline Plc (GSK.L: Quote
) on Wednesday said it is experiencing a new shortage of its Coreg heart drug and diabetes drug Avandamet in the United States, due to processing difficulties at a plant in Puerto Rico."
