Unless you live in a box, you all are well aware that we are in a nationwide Metoprolol Succinate (Toprol XL) shortage. This is caused by Ethex getting spanked by the FDA and not allowing to sell drugs in the US.
Now what makes me angry about this, is that the only other manufacturer of generic Toprol XL is Par. Par, upon Ethex biting the big one, decided to jack up the price about 75-100% THEN back-order us to kingdom come. You know, Fuck you Par. It would be one thing if you would of kept the price the same and been back-ordered, that’s understandable. However you totally screwed us over both price-wise (since most insurance companies were reimbursing based on the OLD MAC price) AND you cannot supply! I’m not sure if this shortage is intentional so they can squeeze some extra bucks out of us (if so, go fuck yourself), or why they would need to raise the price as high as they did (other than “because they can”).
So here is a big TAP fuck-you to you Par. Since you can’t supply to us, I’m getting everyone switched over to another product, and when your shitty product does come back in stock, I’m not going to switch them back.
