Been on the generic alternative to Vyvanse for a few months but it’s been out of stock at all nearby pharmacies. They do however have brand name in stock, but doctor told me it’d be tough getting the authorization from my insurance for it. Has anyone else dealt with this?

Yes. I was able to get a temporary authorization from my insurance for the brand name of Concerta due to the shortage. I was told that the request for authorization must include some wording that specifies that the request is temporary and due to medication shortage, and that alternative options are not feasible. I had to make a number of calls to my prescriber, my insurance, and the pharmacy. The last was because I needed to make sure the pharmacy could fill the new script for name brand.
The temporary authorization lasted two or three months, and I paid over $300 for each 30-day supply of the name brand even after insurance. Still, that gave me some time to figure out what to do next, which ended up being a medication switch to Focalin.
I’m on a higher equivalent dose on focalin than I was on Concerta, and I’m not quite as happy with focalin, but I’ve been able to find it much more easily.
