Dubious Drug Shortages: NPR is doing a series this week on shortages of common drugs. This link is from yesterday's story. Today they covered the deliberate shortages created by wholesale distributors of drugs to artificially raise their prices, but that story won't be available on their website until after 12PM today.
UPDATE: Here's part two of the segment. I always suspected those sudden shortages in common drugs were caused by manufacturer's or wholesalers holding back for profits. But whenever I entertained those thoughts, I would scold myself for thinking like a conspiracy nut. Turns out I wasn't so crazy after all. posted by Sydney on
