Speaking to the Le Monde newspaper, he points out that the shortages peaked in autumn 2022 when the pediatric versions of paracetamol and amoxicillin started to run out on the shelves of European pharmacies.

The newspaper reports that the pharmaceutical companies that produce these drugs categorically deny the term “shortage” and that to justify the situation they project the unpredictable epidemic context, characterized by the early and viral arrival of winter infections. On the other hand, the French pharmaceutical safety agency, ANSM, in 2019 recorded 1,504 reports of drug shortages, while in 2021 it recorded 2,160, i.e. an increase of 43%.
