Drug shortages remain acute in Ireland; Health Department stated alternatives are available and there is no need to worry

DUBLIN – Drug shortages in Ireland continue to be severe. The medicine shortage, which has been going on for about a year, has gotten worse. As a result, the government has begun efforts to provide many alternative medicines so that patients’ treatment does not halt.

Confirming that certain medicines are in short supply, the Department of Health stated that similar medicines have been made available on the market for most of the medicines. The Department of Health also suggested that those who face any obstacles to the medicines they get regularly should continue their treatment with alternative medicines.

According to the health department, three out of every five patients have experienced drug shortages in the last year. A survey of 1,200 people conducted by Amárach for Assure Pharmaceuticals also confirmed the drug shortage. The survey showed that more than half of the people did not receive the medicine they requested.

According to the survey, 48% of people are extremely concerned about the availability of various medicines. David Cullinane, Sinn Féin’s health spokesman, has called for immediate action to address the drug shortage.

He also claimed that the current shortage is the result of the government’s failure to ensure a consistent supply of medicines. Medicine has been in short supply for several months. But the government has adopted the approach of staying away from the problem. He also requested that all necessary steps be taken to resolve the issue.
