I had a patient with a moderately-severe snakebite (probably a copperhead by the description) recently, and had to get way too many people involved to get CroFab for treatment (we got it). We were told there was a ‘nationwide backorder’ by our pharmacy and by the regional poison control center.
I was OK with that until I went to the FDA’s Drug Shortage Page which is silent on the issue of CroFab, indicating there may not be a nationwide shortage.
Who’s right? Tell me if you are having problems, or not. Maybe this has somehow escaped reporting.
