Drug Shortage and Product Change: Enoxaparin pre-filled syringes (PFS) and multi-dose vial

Date

The Issue: Sanofi has been unable to provide adequate order volumes of some formats of enoxaparin (Lovenox®) to meet usage requirements across NH. However, three biosimilar enoxaparin products are now available in Canada and on formulary (Noromby™, Redesca®, and Inclunox®). NH pharmacy will be switching over to Noromby™ for all of the PFS formats and Redesca® for the enoxaparin 100 mg/mL X 3 mL multi-dose vial as these products are readily available.
