    This week Panther Rare Pharmacy has been notified by Jacobus Pharmaceuticals to stop all Ruzurgi shipments until further notice. It may be a day, a week, a month or more.  If you are on Ruzurgi, you may want to take stock of how much Ruzurgi you currently have and discuss other options with your neurologist.

      This is not good news. I hope those on Ruzurgi will heed your recommendation.
