Yeah, everything is so messed up right now. And it's all because of demand from people who abuse it. Prescriptions can't be filled soon enough and now it's screwing us all over.

like

It’s literally not though ? A) there’s no data to support this. B) the DEA capped prosecution/supply quantity for the US bc it didn’t like how much was circulating. C) manufacturers can’t access a key ingredient. D) the primary manufacturer for the US is facing a serious labor shortage, and other manufacturers can’t make up the difference. I get where you’re coming from, but don’t buy into that hype, and don’t demonize other people who take this med, that only hurts those of us who need it (you included) even more.

It's horrible! I feel like this is just a way for them to raise the prices. I've read a couple article and still don't know the real reason for the shortage. Everything just says "manufacturing delays"

This really feels like an attempt to price gouge people who need Adderall to function. But it will likely happen is that many people will turn to street made version of this drug to get by

start sending your prescription to smaller pharmacies, not the big retailers like CVS. those are the ones with the most shortage!

I’m supposed to get a refill on Monday and I run out of my current script in Tuesday. I really hope I’m not screwed.

Not cool that our health system forces people with executive function disorders to take on the burden of finding an essential medication. It took me about an hour on the phone Friday afternoon to a) find a pharmacy that had my dosage in stock; b) confirm with my insurance that it would charge my normal copay for that pharmacy; and c) relay all of that to my doctor to send in a new script to the new pharmacy.

Dang. Wish we could trade. Opposite for me - Vyvanse is way more effective for me than the adderall. Only reason I switched to adderall is because Vyvanse was too expensive for me with my insurance.

According to my therapist, it’s because they are cracking down on these pill mill online pharmacies by setting quotas for the month. If you put your order in at the beginning of the month you will have better luck.

Brutal.

I'm just about running out and I'm scheduled for a refill the week after. I think I'm screwed.

I’m on 5mg XR and I haven’t had a problem. I just got a sticker on my orange bottle that says it comes from a different manufacturer. What dosage are you guys on?

I haven’t had an issue either (20mg XR)

I know right! This whole fiasco is making me anxious. Anyone who has a lead around NYC?

Yes!! I’ve had more luck finding it at local pharmacies. It’s impossible to find any at the big stores in my area

Additional Posts in Lawyers with ADHD

I finally got diagnosed with ADD, inattentive type, at 28 years old. I’ve known I had depression and anxiety for years, but the symptoms and treatment never added up. It took WFH in a pandemic to realize maybe I had ADD, and still months of being dismissed and made to feel like I was crazy before I found a doctor to administer the MMPI. I feel validated, finally, but I can’t help feeling grief too over so much lost potential and unnecessary failure, especially in law school and my career.

I feel like my job is in danger at this point because of how often partners need to follow up with me, especially recently. I’ve been getting some harsh (but warranted) criticism about it yet I still can’t bring myself to do anything about it. I actually really like my firm and the work, but my motivation has never been lower and I’ve been here less than a year. Thought it could be my meds, so I just switched from adderall to concerta hoping it would make a difference, but it hasn’t. Help please
