A major pharmaceutical company said this week that the reported shortage of Adderall throughout the country should be resolved in the coming weeks as it works through the labor shortage that brought about the supply hiccups.

Teva Pharmaceuticals told NBC News that it expects "full recovery for all inventory and orders in the coming weeks, at which point we expect no disruption at the pharmacy level." The company blamed "a labor shortage on its packaging line," the news network reported.

Pharmacies across the country have in recent weeks been reporting trouble stocking the drug, which is used to treat attention deficit disorder in many patients. 

Hundreds of independent pharmacies in a recent survey reported difficulty acquiring the drug for patients, though national chain CVS said it was "​​not experiencing supply issues for Adderall," while Walgreens likewise claimed that "current supply is meeting our patient needs at this time," NBC reported.
