Drug shortage: Haloperidol oral tablets


The issue: Haloperidol 0.5 mg, 1 mg, 2 mg, 5 mg and 10 mg oral tablets are on backorder from the only manufacturer in Canada (Teva). NH has a good supply of haloperidol 1 mg tablets, but stock levels of all other strengths may not meet future demands. Inventory of some strengths might be depleted prior to the resolution of this backorder.

Estimated resolution: November 2022 for the 1mg tablets; March 2023 for all other strengths
