You've received some good replies re: the "max" dosage(s). Due to the lack of 25s in the market, it's put a lot of pressure on all the other strengths as Docs are moving patients to other dosages. This is the reason for your shortage. Hope the Mylans work out ok. Would love to hear your feedback.

I spoke with a representative @ Jansseen yesterday, and they've fixed the problem and will be shipping huge lots of 25s by July 16th. However, this date could change. But, it's the first time Jansssen has put a date out there. Thus, I suspect the shortages will not last much longer. It may be a tough ride for the next month for all of us patch wearers.:(
