Medication Shortages

ADHD Medication Shortage (Including Elvanse®)

As you may be aware, currently there are problems with the availability and supply of some of the medication used to treat ADHD. This is a national problem. There are some supplies of medication, but availability is changing every day.

There are several reasons contributing to the supply disruption, including:

  • An increase in demand for medication to manage ADHD.
  • A change in the companies who produce and supply the medication.

This has led to difficulties in meeting the supply needs of patients.

This shortage is likely to last in to early 2024.

The medicines affected are:

  • methylphenidate prolonged release (Equasym® XL, Xaggitin XL®, Concerta XL®, Xenidate XL®)
  • lisdexamfetamine (Elvanse®)
  • guanfacine (Intuniv®)

These include the following:

  • Elvanse® 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 mg capsules
  • Elvanse® Adult 30, 50, and 70 mg capsules  

There are some supplies of these medications but their availability is changing daily (both coming into stock and going out of stock).

Finding an alternative is not always a straightforward process and often needs clinical advice specific to the patient.

There are currently 3 options we suggest:

  1. Wait until it becomes available
  2. Order and risk it not being available
  3. Book an appointment with a clinician to discuss an alternative

Further updates will be posted here
