The hospice is switching patients to oral drugs whenever possible and may soon have to rely more on suppositories.  “The staff is not that crazy about that, and neither are our patients or the families,” he said. Terri Maxwell, vice president of clinical education at Philadelphia-based Enclara Pharmacia, which supplies medications to the VNA and other hospices, said her company was asking clients to “ration” injectable morphine and hydromorphone.  Enclara can get the liquid morphine that caregivers give hospice patients at home, but people in inpatient hospice often need stronger stuff.  “We have been strongly recommending that people reserve [injectables] for only people who have intractable and rapidly escalating pain,” she said. The shortage of opioids comes on top of a national shortage of intravenous solutions .  Like other hospital pharmacy leaders, Kasbekar has a daily meeting — at 7:30 a.m. — to discuss what will and will not be available. While the IV-solutions shortage has been attributed largely to plant problems in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria, the opioids shortage is more complicated. In some ways, it is a typical drug shortage.  These are happening more and more, Fox said, when a dominant producer has manufacturing problems and smaller companies can’t ramp up enough to meet demand.  In this case, Pfizer controls 65 percent to 70 percent of the market for the injectable opioids now in short supply, she said. Steven Danehy, a Pfizer spokesman, said there is a “technical and process issue” with a supplier that makes a “key component” of the pre-filled syringe systems Pfizer uses. What complicates the picture further is that these drugs are controlled substances, and the DEA limits how much can be sold.  Over the last two years, the DEA has reduced the annual quotas for morphine, hydromorphone, and fentanyl by 35 percent to 46 percent.  Barbara Carreno, a DEA spokeswoman, said the Ritalin Cena rules are meant to reduce diversion to illicit drug users and reflect actual medical usage of the drugs.  The limits, she said, should not be causing shortages. However, each producer gets its own quota.  Danehy said Pfizer still expects to be able to meet its annual allotment eventually. It clearly isn’t meeting expectations now.
