Pfizer Responds: What to Do With Tikosyn Shortage

For dofetilide users, the shortage of 500 microgram pills (0.5mg) that I mentioned earlier has been temporarily rectified by Pfizer - it seems they're willing to provide four 125-microgram tablets for the price of a single 125 microgram tablet until the shortage is resolved - hence it will set you back the same $143.24, irrespective of the number of tablets used to achieve the 500 microgram dose. The full notice can be found here (pdf).

Remarkably, a fax was received by my office yesterday. I never did reach anyone via phone, but happened to see my local Pfizer rep Wednesday...
