A Miami company's children's ADHD medicine might not work. There's a national recall

Miami Herald - 3/22/2023

Four strengths of Daytrana prescription patches, worn to help children and adolescents diagnosed with ADHD, have been recalled nationwide by Noven Pharmaceuticals'Miami office.

The reason given on the FDA-posted notice: "Defective Delivery System: Out of specification for shear."

That means testing says the patches don't deliver the drug within acceptable standards. Noven recalled Daytrana patches in March 2020 for the same reason.

A recall notice sent to pharmacy supplier PBA Health in 2020 said, "The use or exposure to the product could lead to user annoyance, decreased or lack of drug effect, or accidental exposure to caregivers or others."
