    If google "Fluvoxamine shortage in the uk" there i s nothing so has not been reported in Media or in any NHS releases (there are others from 2014 for other drugs for example) so if is issue is either very limited areas/scopes or being kept incredibly hushed.

    We do have shortages from time to time of drugs. Working in the NHS I haven't been informed of a fluvoxamine shortage but I work in an area where we do not regularly use it, if at all so I perhaps wouldn't be aware of it. Shortages do tend to be kept hush hush though.
