Walmart, CVS Pharmacies Have Blocked or Delayed Telehealth Adderall Prescriptions

Some of the nation’s largest pharmacies have blocked or delayed prescriptions over the last year from clinicians working for telehealth startups that have sprung up to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, according to pharmacies and people familiar with the issue.

The pharmacies in certain cases have expressed concerns that clinicians at Done Health and Cerebral Inc. are writing too many prescriptions for Adderall and other stimulants, the people said. The federal government considers the drug controlled substances because of their potential for abuse and places them in the same category as cocaine.
