Adderall On Backorder
(Newest replies first)

vtrimm Says:

I take generic Adderall 20 mg for narcolepsy and there is not one local pharmacy that has it in stock. I have never had this problem before. The pharmacies are saying that it's on backorder from the manufacturer. Is anyone else having problems getting their scripts filled?

There are no grounds for class action suits or malpractice suits. Each year the DEA decides how much Schedule II active ingredients manufacturers will be given the next year. When that runs out that is it until Jan 1 of the next year. Each year the DEA has reduced the amounts more and more and 2022 is no different.

More than a class action there's gonna be alot of malpractice suits…I haven't seen the back order bs since last year. It’s always twice or 3x a year. If you get a certain brand they have to get it for you.

Generic Adderall has been on back order for a couple weeks in Los Angeles. I read that there’s a national shortage and that the drug companies don’t expect things to get back to normal until January 2022. :(

Of course they are not going to give you that information. They have to be extremely careful with that information. I am shocked Teva gave you the info they did. That is why it is best to talk to the pharmacist you deal with every month.

A friend of mine gets his Adderall 20 mg from Walgreens in the northern part of Louisiana. He has not had any problems. It depends on the immediate area. But, Independent Pharmacies are best.

New Orleans here too. Def don’t go to Walgreens cuz yeah, they are still saying backordered. It has been that way for 1.5 months now which is pretty crazy.
Best alternative I’ve found is the smaller pharmacies have been helpful in the meantime.
I prob won’t be going to Walgreens to get anything filled after this though. Their way of handling things has been pretty lousy but ah well.
Good luck!

New Orleans here. Not one single pharmacy has had adderall in any dosage for over three weeks now. Not one. I’ve been taking this medication for about two years and I’ve never seen an outage this widespread and certainly not for this long. I contacted Teva, the manufacturer of the Walgreens generic. Two weeks ago they said they just shipped a large quantity to AmerisourceBergen, Walgreens wholesaler, and had another large shipment about to ship. Contacted AmerisourceBergen and they refused to give me any information whatsoever. So the issues appears to be with them, not the manufacturer or pharmacy. Unfortunately they won’t help.

Have you also asked about 15 mg and 10 mg tablets ? Your doctor would have to be comfortable with writing you a new prescription for a different milligram until the 30 mg are back in stock. Some doctors are and some are not. Usually they don't become hesitant unless it is a smaller milligram.

There is no reason to doubt it has been ordered. But if there isn't any available from the suppliers they use. They only option you have is to go to different pharmacies. You could call different pharmacies and ask to speak to the pharmacist. Explain the situation and ask the pharmacist if they have any. Try Independent Pharmacies in your area. But, when there is a shortage in a area for this long and close to the end of the year. Unfortunately, it is common for the medication to not be available until mid to late January or February.

Can everyone say their location so we can know where these shortages are? Arizona here, didn’t have a problem getting Lannett 30mg last month.

I also have narcolepsy and cannot get my 7.5 ml dose filled. It’s been 2 weeks, so I am limited only to my 5 mg xr currently.

The DEA has been reducing the active ingredients for Schedule II drugs by quite a bit in recent years. It will be reduced again in 2022.

A lot depends on the area. A friend of mine takes Adderall 20 mg. She got her prescription filled week before last with no problem at a Walgreens in Louisiana.

They no longer make brand name Dextrostat. Dextrostat was Dextroamphetamine. There are several different generics.

Re: BlessedLady (# 794) Expand Referenced Message

This is great info. I still get them in seperate increments of 10mg for easier dosing. It's like having 600MG of seroquel or 100x25mg! the 25mg are more useful!

Re: Sally (# 790) Expand Referenced Message

it does happen - not often; but it does happen. I remeber they had to put a hold on the dextrostat like 30 years ago because the black die in the spansule would react to sunlight. they changed the die. These days, they (DEA) are probably being very careful and caucious I hope...
