Chronic Dexedrine shortage in US? What to do...

Posted by zonked on March 6, 2013, at 2:43:41

Several pharmacies alerted me that Dexedrine was on backorder, up to weeks out. This is weird. In California, I knew of two pharmacies that always had it, but if you google "Dexedrine shortage" you'll see this is a real problem.

Does anyone work in the pharmacy industry in the US? Have a look at this page:

I wonder if an independent pharmacy not tied to a particular distributor could help me. It does look as though I'll be calling around quite a bit tomorrow.

Thanks,

Yes. That would be the way to go. Either that, or go for Adderall or Vyvanse.

Could it have to do with this "new war on misused meds". I've heard even some cancer patients are having problems getting their pain meds. Have an ebay friend well husband & I do and she had breast cancer and has bone mets. Her pain management doc said it's misuse of controlled meds. Sad when misuse by others causes this. Did you call the drug company and see what they say? Phillipa

Is there a generic dexamphetamine sulphate yopu could get instead of brand name Dexadrine?
