WASHINGTON, D.C. (NewsHour) — There is a national shortage of Adderall, a drug used to treat several attention-deficit disorders. Intermittent manufacturing delays and a lack of supply to meet market demand in the U.S. left those who rely on the drug unsure about how they’ll be able to get the medication they say they need to function. Dr. Craig Surman joined NewsHour’s William Brangham to discuss the shortage.
