Reason for the Shortage

  • Teva has a shortage of mesna injection due to manufacturing delays.

Supplies of product that has already been manufactured will continue to be released until inventory is depleted. Bedford Laboratories has a small number of products manufactured elsewhere that are not affected by this closure.
