Local Pharmacies Facing Generic Tamiflu Shortage
WESLACO – Pharmacies across the Rio Grande Valley are seeing a shortage of generic Tamiflu.
The name brand treatment is still in stock; both are used to treat the influenza virus.
Jesus Saenz has been a pharmacist for 44 years.
He explains why six of his pharmacies are seeing a demand in generic Tamiflu.
“What's unusual is that we are already coming into the early days of June and usually we see a lot of Tamiflu brand and generic being dispensed early October,” says Saenz.
He attributes the shortage to an extended flu season this year.
