Canada has been experiencing an intermittent supply issue on pediatric liquid formulations of both Acetaminophen and ibuprofen. We issued a statement in August clarifying that a prescription is not needed to purchase these products, and we’re encouraging the public to purchase only what they need to ensure supply is available for all who need it. CPhA has compiled a collection of resources to support you and your patients, and we continue to work with Health Canada and other key stakeholders to understand the extent of the issue and collaborate on mitigation strategies.
