Is anyone having problems getting IV Doxycycline? The infusion company we have been purchasing it from is having trouble getting it due to a shortage. If anyone knows where this is available let me know.

Have your local retail pharmacies like CVS,etc. contact their wholesalers like McKesson or Cardinal and see if they can get it.

Bringing this to the top.

Is anyone else having problems purchasing IV Doxy? We are paying for this out of pocket and now we are having problems with the shortage. We are having problems getting this plus what we have found has doubled in price. My daughter came off it for a few weeks and started to get worse. Any help would be appreciated.

fyi- no answers:

My infusion co. said generic was no longer available and they had to switch to a more expensive supplier.
They were hoping this would change soon...

I am on IV Doxy. --I live in NY (saw your location said NY).

I didn't know there was a shortage? I actually just received 15 more bags of it today. Mine is through a Home Infusion company.

Do you have any problem with the sun and IV doxy?

My Dr said this is a possibility but we would have to wait until after the summer?????

What? Seriously? I have no problem getting IV Doxy. My LLMD writes the script, (we are paying out of pocket, as most with Lyme do past 28 days)...our home infusion company (which is also its own pharmacy) has been supplying the Doxy to us for months now, with no mention of a shortage. I received 15 bags from the supplier today, and was told just to call when I need my next delivery.

[confused]
