FDA Warning: Fake ADHD Drug Adderall Sold Online

Some websites are distributing fake versions of Adderall, a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) currently in short supply in the U.S., federal regulators warned. The stimulant, made by Teva Pharmaceutical Industries and others, may be a target for rogue websites and distributors because of the shortage, FDA stated. The agency learned of at least two cases in which people received counterfeit versions of the 30-milligram dose of the drug with the wrong active ingredients. The counterfeit Adderall tablets are round, white and do not have any type of markings, such as letters or numbers. Any product that resembles the tablets or the packaging in the photos below and claims to be Teva’s Adderall 30 mg tablets should be considered counterfeit. The counterfeit versions of Adderall should be considered as unsafe, ineffective and potentially harmful. Authentic Adderall 30 mg tablets produced by Teva are round, orange/peach, and scored tablets with “dp” embossed on one side and “30” on the other side of the tablet. Teva’s Adderall 30 mg tablets are packaged only in a 100-count bottle with the National Drug Code (NDC) 0555-0768-02 listed.
