Story 2 Provera

A Kingston GP reports on August 22, 2011: Last week, I had a patient who wanted a renewal of Provera which she is taking as part of hormone replacement.  She is aware of the risks of HRT but has chosen to continue on it. Three separate pharmacies confirmed that generic Medroxy progesterone acetate is unavailable in the city and is currently on back order.  I ended up prescribing Prometrium which is a much newer progesterone.
