Pantoprazole 40 mg vials - national drug shortage


A Pantoprazole national drug shortage update is now available for Northern Health medical staff.

The issue: Pantoprazole 40 mg vials

National stock status: Pantoprazole 40 mg vials are on backorder from all Canadian vendors with an earliest estimated resupply date of August 2024 (Auro).
Pharmacy currently has a good supply of vials, but conservation measures should be implemented due to ongoing uncertainty around future supply.

Possible alternatives:

  • Pantoprazole tablets
  • Esomeprazole tablets/granules (formulary restricted for NG use or dysphagia patients)
  • Famotidine injection
