Health Canada says it has secured a foreign supply of acetaminophen  that’ll be available in stores and pharmacies ”in the coming weeks.”
The regulator says this will increase the supply available to consumers, and address the current shortage.
”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,” adds Health Canada.
The agency blames the countrywide shortage of kids’ pain medication on unprecedented demand.
Manufacturers of these drugs in Canada have increased production by 30%, but demand keeps outstripping supply.
