ADHD Drug Shortage Felt Locally

WXXI's Carlet Cleare reports on concerns over a nationwide shortage of Adderall and how it is impacting local patients, doctors and pharmacies.

Carlet spoke to a local doctor and pharmacist about the shortage and the factors leading to this problem locally.



Adderall shortage

Hospitals and patients are suffering countrywide from a crippling short supply of numerous medications. The narcotics in critically short supply consist of Adderall, a very popular medication for treating Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Adderall among prescription drug shortages is having trouble right now. I hope FDA will have a sudden action for this kind of prescription crisis.
