I have been taking 20mg of generic Ritalin 4 times a day for the past 5 years, and suddenly this month no pharmacy has enough to fill my prescription- apparently there is a national 'shortage.'

What else should I try?

Is there a generic 'Provigil' now?

Any natural supplements to hold me over?

And any insight in to why there is a shortage or what that really means?

Thanks! Have added L-Tyrosine, Maca, and slowly rationing out my final pills broken into quarter pieces.
