    Methylprednisolone Acetate Injection

    [05 October 2012]
    [snip]
    Reason for the Shortage

    Sandoz and Teva could not provide a reason for the shortage.
    [snip]
    Estimated Resupply Dates

    Sandoz has all methylprednisolone acetate injection on back order with an estimated release date in 2013.
    Teva has all methylprednisolone acetate injection on back order and the company cannot estimate a release date.

    Implications for Patient Care

    FDA closed New England Compounding Company in Massachusetts due to a fungal meningitis outbreak linked to methylprednisolone acetate intrathecal injections compounded by this pharmacy.
    No commercially available products are approved for intrathecal use.
