CDC warns access to ADHD meds may be disrupted after arrests of health-care startup executives

West Virginia (CNN) – Important news for people with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD. 

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have issued an official health advisory warning that access to ADHD medications may be disrupted. 

The announcement comes after the arrests of two executives of a telehealth company that distributes such drugs.  

The Justice Department announced a federal healthcare fraud indictment against two executives from Done Global, a digital health company. 

The indictment claims the two executives generated more than $100 million in revenue by arranging for the prescriptions of more than 40 million pills targeting “drug seekers,” and instructing prescribers to prescribe stimulants to patients even if they didn’t qualify. 

The agency said the arrests mark the justice department’s first criminal drug distribution prosecutions related to prescribing via telemedicine through a digital health company.
