    In Long Island, NY, all he major chains (CVS, Walgreens, RIte-Aid) and independent drug stores have not been able to order Sinemet brand name drug for several months and have no clue as to when it will become available.  Do you take brand name Sinemet?  If so, have you had a problem getting refills?

    That’s frustrating for everyone who relies on that drug! Do you have any idea why this happened? Does this affect you personally, Jean?

      yes ally, i cannot take generic as i get very nauseous.

       

      I called manufacturer, Merck, and was read a prepared statement that said in so many words, one of their  suppliers ran out of some ingredients.  Merck has no estimate as to when they will be selling 25/100 tablets again.  This is not mentioned on their website or any place else on the web. I saw some things about Sinemet CR having shortage issues, but not Sinemet.
      This is a problem in Europe, Canada and Australia as well..

      Hi Marcus, when was last time you had your prescription filled?  If you can stock up, I would recommend it.
