Nationwide Vyvanse Shortage

If you or your child have been impacted by the nationwide shortage of Vyvanse, it is very important you are aware of the possible options to address this:

 

  • Contacting a few different pharmacies or a pharmacy out of your local area - as different pharmacies often have different stock levels of various Vyvanse strengths.

 

  • Booking an appointment with your doctor at Eton Place to discuss next steps, whether that is: changing your dosage, type of stimulant etc. This may be a telehealth or in-person appointment, depending on circumstances. Please note that, as our doctors are only in the clinic at specific times during the week, there may be a wait time for this. However, given the nature and regulation of stimulant medication, in addition to potential risks and adverse effects of medication (in general), it is always best practice for any medication changes to occur in the setting of a review, with ongoing monitoring. 

​​

  • Contact your general practitioner – your general practitioner will have received correspondence from your doctor at Eton Place and may potentially be able to help develop a plan with you. Please ensure you contact your GP practice to confirm this. 

​​

  • If you have recently seen your specialist (in the last 2 weeks), you may be able to obtain a new script without the need for a review appointment. Please note that, this is highly dependent on individual circumstances and WILL NOT be the case for everyone. Given the unprecedented current administrative workload, there may be a fee for this service, in addition to a 3-5 business day turnaround time.

Please call the clinic on (07) 3736 1268 if you need to discuss the above options further.
