I got an answer on the shortage, well, at least this month’s shortage, as I live in a college town. Finals week. Turns out, ADDers who are in college tend to start remembering to take their meds, or refill them in the weeks leading up to finals, as papers are due and intense studying sessions begin. Makes sense.

The pharmacist said that there’s a limited amount they can prescribe during a certain period, because it’s a controlled drug in the US. She also said more would be in later in the month. Luckily she had enough on hand for me :)
