I just checked the FDA drug shortage site and there are a couple of different options and answers to this question.
Some Nalbuphine HCl (Nubain) 10 mg/mL; 10 mL vial 'should' available now from Hospira, the manufacturer. The 10 mg/mL; 1 mL ampule isn't expected until the second quarter of 2013; the 20 mg/mL; 1 mL ampule and the 20 mg/mL and the 10 mL vial are expected during the first quarter of 2013.
Hope that helps
I have been waiting like alot of you for Hospira to release something... and we have been waiting for a long time now. I am not sure with them being the only supplier, and with the FDA regs. why we are still waiting. They have the corner on the market here and if you go back on the FDA report on this shortage they just keep saying "next month" this has been going on for seven months that I have been waiting. There are a few thing you can explore though... a compounding pharmacy maybe able to make it or a vet. medical supply place if you can find a way to order it from there... but good luck on both. I have not been able to go either of those routes.
