Adderall shortage could last 30-60 more days, FDA says
(CNN) - Adderall users can expect to see challenges in getting their prescriptions filled for a while longer.
The Food and Drug Administration said the Adderall shortage should only last another 30 to 60 days.
There has been a surging demand for the drug as well as intermittent manufacturing delays at the drug’s creator, Teva Pharmaceuticals.
A data analytics firm reported for people ages 22 to 44, usage has increased by 15% between 2020 and 2021.
The drug is primarily used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
Doctors said a lack of access to Adderall can have implications for careers, home lives and even safety.
