Metoprolol Shortage

Our supply of metoprolol injection is now at a critical level. Based on our current utilization, we will exhaust our supplies by the weekend. We have been unable to obtain additional metoprolol, and it appears unlikely that we will get any in the foreseeable future. We have increased our supplies of propranolol injection, as well as labetalol and esmolol. We are also experiencing difficulty obtaining diltiazem injection and enalaprilat injection. Please use oral therapy or alternative agents when ever possible.

PS- please don’t kill the messenger
