EMA publishes information on specific medicine shortages that affect or are likely to affect more than one European Union (EU) Member State, where EMA has assessed the shortage and provided recommendations to patients and healthcare professionals across the EU. It also provides a list of national registers in the EU and EEA Member States containing information on medicine shortages in these individual countries.
Most medicine shortages are dealt with at national level so if you cannot find information on the EMA website or would like further details, please check the relevant national register listed below or visit the website of your national competent authority. If you are having difficulty obtaining a medicine that has been prescribed to you, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
