Supply at Wholesalers

Posted to EC List May 1, 2007 Msg #90977

It has been a while since I posted so I have some catching up to do...

Availability of Pergolide Mesylate and Permax tablets in Denver, CO:
Cardinal, a multi-billion dollar pharmacy wholesaler has been stocked
out of Permax and Pergolide Mesylate tablets since May 3, 2007.

How to contact the media: There is an excellent website that makes it
easy to send messages and advisories to media outlets. You can enter
your zipcode and select up to 5 media outlets at a time to email.
Here's the web address:

Availability of Pergolide for compounding: I have checked with all the
compounding wholesalers over the past week and none of them have
ordered any Pergolide nor do they plan to order any until the FDA
gives them the green light.
