Imports of kids’ pain and fever meds coming, Health Canada says – CBC

Supplies will be available for sale at pharmacies in the coming weeks

Nov 14, 2022

Health Canada says a foreign supply of a children’s medication for reducing fever and pain has now been secured.

“We are announcing that we have secured foreign supply of children’s acetaminophen that will be available for sale at retail and in community pharmacies in the coming weeks,” Health Canada said in a release on Monday.

The regulator said it shares the concern of parents and caregivers who’ve been unable to find acetaminophen and ibuprofen for young children.

“At this time, Canadians should buy only what they need, so that other parents and caregivers can access medication so we can meet the needs of sick children.”

Exactly how much medication is coming wasn’t disclosed by the regulator.
