Non-urgent advice: Patient Update

Lisdexamfetamine (Elvanse) is in very short supply nationwide and may be unavailable until the end of the year, there are also supply issues with methylphenidate (Xaggitin/Concerta) and other ADHD medications. 

Please consider saving your medication and only taking on the days when you really need to take it as you might not be able to get more until stocks come back into pharmacies. 

Please do not request prescriptions early as we are unable to issue prescriptions in advance of when they would be due.
