This is unfortunate. The shortage of medications is a frightening thing. The shortage of ADD and ADHD meds aren't the only issue. Earlier in 2011 we saw shortages of critical cancer medications.

Unfortunately "“The agency has not elevated the priority it places on its response to drug shortages, despite the rapid escalation of these shortages,” Marcia Crosse, director of the GAO healthcare office, told the US Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions.“Although FDA recognizes the serious threat these shortages pose, we believe the agency can and must do more to protect the public health”
