ADHD Medication is Recalled Because of Impurity

You are well within your rights to believe that when you go to the doctor and get a prescription, and then you take that prescription to the pharmacy, the medication you receive will be pure. It’s amazing to think that something so important could be overlooked. Unfortunately, every year many different types of medications are released to the public and they’re not as pure as they should be.

In a recent article on the Fierce Pharma website, it was reported that more than 600,000 bottles of ADHD medication were recalled by the company, Allergan. The medications were of varying strengths and they were all recalled because of impurities within the pills. The drugs in question were actually a copy of the ADHD medication Adderall, which is prescribed for thousands of Americans every single day, young and old alike.

In this particular case, the problem came at a very bad time. Allergan was set to sell its generic drug business to a company by the name of Teva. However, that deal has yet to go through and might not for quite some time. As a result, the recall lies in Allergan’s hands.
