Fox News

Doctors David Samadi and Marc Siegel of the FOX News Medical A Team talk about the causes of the recent Ritalin and Adderall shortages and the best ways to cope with it.

Dr. Siegel begins by explaining what ADHD is and how the drugs Ritalin and Adderall help the 2 million children who have been diagnosed with it. He also explains two big factors that are contributing to the shortages: illegal, recreational use of the drugs, and the reduced incentive for companies to produce the drugs since both have gone generic.

Dr. Samadi then echoes Siegel's sentiments and goes on to suggest that parents who are unable to find pharmacies with the medications in stock speak to their doctors to find a suitable replacement within the same family until more Ritalin or Adderall become available.
