The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration issued a joint statement warning people about fake Adderall.

The two agencies say two websites, and, sell amphetamine drug products marketed as Adderall without a prescription.

Adderall is an FDA-approved prescription drug used to treat ADHD, but the agencies say it has a high potential for abuse and addiction.

“The illegal sale of prescription drug stimulants online puts Americans at risk and contributes to potential abuse, misuse, and overdose," said FDA Commissioner Robert M. Califf, M.D. "These particular types of online pharmacies also undermine our efforts to help consumers safely purchase legitimate prescription medicines over the internet."

The agencies say these illegal products pose a risk to consumers, and purchasing from an unsafe online pharmacy could mean the drugs could be counterfeit, contaminated, expired, or otherwise harmful.

Consumers that have meds from either website should dispose of them and not purchase anything else.
