Residents continue to struggle as the national shortage of ADHD medication continues.

Sussex Health and Care Partnership has issued advice to people who suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and are concerned.

It said the medication can be a "vital lifeline" for many and has given advice about using apps to help manage symptoms as well as seeking behavioural support from organisations and exercising.

Sussex Health and Care said: "We appreciate that this is a trying and a stressful time for those affected by the medication shortages."

The NHS raised a national patient safety alert in September over a shortage of drugs used to treat ADHD, including some variations of methylphenidate hydrochloride, which are the most widely prescribed ADHD medication. It said atomoxetine supplies were also lacking across the UK.
