Medication Shortages?

The National Kidney Foundation urges you to continue taking your medication at the prescribed dose unless otherwise directed by your healthcare provider. 

They also advise against hoarding medications, as this could lead to critical shortages. They recommend that you contact your health care provider if you have trouble accessing prescribed medications.

The FDA is currently monitoring the supply chain of drugs, so it is important to try to keep up to date. Patients can search for any medications in their database to see if there is currently a shortage.
