When vital drugs run out, patients pay the price
150 medications in short supply so far this year; deaths, injuries have followed


Across the United States, life-saving or medically necessary drugs are running low — or running out — endangering care and increasing the odds of medication mistakes for a broad swath of patients.

Health officials say drug shortages pose a growing public health crisis, fueled in large part by financial motives of drugmakers who’ve watched low-cost generics erode their profits.

I understand they need to make profits, but they get paid the big bucks for nexium so that they can make the stuff that doesn't make profits.  And for some of the orphan drugs, as much as people hate government, this is what government is for.
