Unfortunately, there is a national shortage of some of the medicines used in ADHD. This has been caused by a combination of manufacturing issues and an increased global demand. Other ADHD products remain available, but it is expected that there is not enough supply of these to meet the increases in demand.
The shortages are expected to resolve at various dates between October and December. All hospital trusts and GP practices are working with people with ADHD to either prescribe alternative medicines or identify other methods of managing behaviour and engagement.
