This newsletter provides information to consumers concerned about not being able to get more than a 30-day supply of their prescription medications. Consumers are reminded that limiting their prescriptions to a 30-day supply is not because of a medication shortage, but rather, to prevent one. During the pandemic provinces and territories are coordinating efforts to ensure there will be enough medication for everyone. Limiting the amount of medication on every prescription to a 30-day supply helps to manage the medication supply over the longer term. The newsletter provides suggestions to consumers to help them do their part during the pandemic and limited prescription fills and refills.
