TELL US: Have antibiotic shortages affected you or your loved ones?

Antiviral, antibiotic shortage compounds stressful cold, flu season

Over the past few months, there has been a shortage of medicines, including antibiotics. Strep throat, sinus infections, ear infections, upper respiratory infections, and other sicknesses have been tough for doctors to treat without them.

The shortage started in August, and pharmacists say it just keeps getting worse. They are especially having a hard time filling Amoxicillin requests. The FDA has listed Amoxicillin as currently in short supply.
