In recent years there have been shortages of more and more drugs and now we have a shortage of sedation and parental analgesics. I recently tried to order midazolam 5mg/cc which I have used for 20+ years. I wasn't able to buy it but fortunately they had some 1mg/cc which I was allowed to buy enough for about 10-15 patients. When I tried to buy some narcotics same thing not available except some meperidine. So I had to settle for something besides what I have used for years. This shortage is in the United States.
