In a emergency ask your ADHD Dr or RPh if short acting 6 hour tablets are preferable to dangerous abstaining from a Rx with serious immediate discontinuation depressive/withdrawal Syndrome.

Shire, Teva, and other methlyphenadate XL/ER and Adderall XL/ER allotment have NOW ARRIVED in most major outlets for these extended release/LA, (long acting) formulations. Although information on the phone is not unlawful, if you are a regular custumer,they WILL tell you if they have it in stock. A personal appearance with Rx in hand will assure the info you seek. God health,(and always ask for the package insert) You might even what to read it OR get a free MTM medication theraputic Mnmt.consultation with your RPh....

ADHD drug shortage is actually a blessing. You can now look for healthier and natural alternatives to treat ADHD.

Kids who grow up taking ADHD drugs become addicted to other hardcore drugs...no kidding!

For example, there's a mixed powder that you can buy at Vegan stores or sometimes stores like GNC that has the natural food Phytoplankton which provides Neurological Support for - Mental alertness, ADHD, Parkinson's, and general dementia

I would much rather trust natural foods for my son than a drug like Adderall or Stratteral that cause so many side effects.

Immediate release generic Adderal from Corepharma are in production, but in short supply. LA/ER formulas are only sparce in location. Teva and Shire are two other suppliers. Call at least several days ahead or travel up to 25 miles if need be.

The supply has caught up to near normal levels. Most pharmaceutical companies are almost back to normal stock with the exception of the generic immediate release formulas of MAS or mixed amphetamine salts. These are the most sought after because of the least cost and the abuse potential with long acting is FAR less the immediate acting 4-6 hour generic tablets.

I really hope that health care providers do not turn to antidepressants. Some antidepressants, like Paxil, have been reported to cause severe side effects such as birth defects and suicidal behavior. This has caused litigation and various settlements for Paxil maker, GlaxoSmithKline.

A troll ? Is that indicative of primary indications of empirical inference denoting your ineptitude or dissociative denial or projection of protracted unammliarated lack of progression?
