ADHD drug in short supply leading to counterfeit version

Posted: Updated:

The popular ADHD drug adderall is in short supply…leading some consumers to turn to the internet to find the drug. And that's why the Food and Drug Administration is issuing a warning about that because they say you may get a counterfeit version of adderall, if you buy it online. The real adderall pills are orange or peach in color, but the fake ones are likely white with a misspelled label.  FDA officials say the counterfeit version includes the wrong active ingredient, so it is ineffective and potentially harmful.   For more information, just visit http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm305932.htm</url>
