Amid Adderall shortage, people with ADHD face withdrawal and despair


November 17, 2022


Michael Kenneally, who has been on Adderall to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder for 25 years, was unable to fill his prescription this summer for almost a month amid a nationwide shortage of Adderall.

Without medication, patients are wondering what comes next.

By the time Michael Kenneally found himself pacing outside a CVS drugstore in Cambridge, Mass., this summer, he was on a first-name basis with the pharmacist. Kenneally, 48, had been told multiple times that his Adderall prescription couldn't be filled. For 25 days, he continued to check by phone and in person.

Kenneally had been on the medication to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, for 25 years. "It's been so long for me that I've been on it that it's difficult to function without it," he said.
