With the flu season raging, many pharmacies are reporting little to none of the main drug used to fight both the symptoms and the cycle of the virus.
Tamiflu is in short supply just about everywhere and places that can get it like Dougherty's Pharmacy in north Dallas aren't getting an awful lot of it.
"We use Cardinal Health as our drug wholesaler and we have a secondary. Both of those are running low. Supplies are spotty. Some of that is because there is a huge demand right now and of course when these types of things happen you always get a little bit of hoarding going on too," said Andy Komuves, a pharmacist.
The liquid Tamiflu for children is on back order everywhere so Dougherty's, a compounding pharmacy, is making its own.
The pharmacy makes a dose stronger than what is commercially available so children don't have to take as many doses.
