Or your wait may be longer than you think!
Are you having trouble getting ADD / ADHD medication? It’s not your pharmacy’s fault. There is currently a real shortage of ADHD stimulant medication, particularly Adderall and Metadate in both their brand and generic forms. According to ADDA, the world’s leading Adult ADHD organization, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration is getting hundreds of complaints daily about people’s inability to get their prescriptions filled.
The problem evidently comes from a combination of drug companies trying to maximize profits and the Drug Enforcement Agency attempting to minimize stimulant abuse, particularly among college students.
ADDA and CHADD are working in Washington to help address the shortage. In the meantime, don’t wait until you’re out of medication to fill your prescription, or you could have to do without for several days.
