A shortage in antidepressants could soon be resolved producers believe.
The Bupropion drug is common in antidepressants which have been facing shortages throughout the country since September 9, and southwest Saskatchewan is no exception.
A Swift Current pharmacy said that they are indeed facing shortages of the antidepressants which use Bupropion, but have so far been able to transfer patients to other antidepressants in the meantime.
A health official from the Ministry of Health said that some manufacturers of the medication attribute the low amount of the drug to an increase in demand caused by the shortage, as well as a delay in shipping.
Valeant, a company who produces bupropion XL 300mg, say that they have resolved the shortage of the drug, but to incorporate shipping times into the restocking.
