Anticipated Shortage of Mifegymiso 

It has been brought to our attention that Linepharma International is anticipating a shortage of Mifegymiso supply issue for a period of about 2 weeks. This shortage is expected to happen between February 20 and March 6, 2023. 

They have reached out to distributors and pharmacies who may have a higher inventory in order to make arrangements to release some of their supply within this timeframe. 

As you might already know, this product can be used until week 9 of pregnancy and not sooner than week 4. 

Should women not be able to access Mifegymiso at their usual pharmacy during these 2 weeks, we  recommend that they get their prescription back and try another pharmacy. 

Linepharma has ensured us that they will make every effort possible to adjust the supply to meet immediate and future demands and to guarantee product availability. 

The SOGC will keep you posted if new information is available.
