Shire pharmaceuticals has stopped manufacturing adderall & the generic version (amphetamine salts) as I cannot find it at any pharmacy anymore. What is the best alternative? Usually I can only afford generic.

I can't tell if this is a patent controversy or why on earth the company would stop making such a lucrative drug that so many people like myself need. I'm afraid to spend money to go to the doctor for this as I had to go to nine pharmacies last time to track it down. Each pharmacist I speak to say that the manufacturer has stopped producing it and they wouldn't know when they would get more, possibly 2012. I need to know, what is the equivalent (I've heard nothing but awful things about vyvanse) and why on earth this happened? On the internet it seems people across america are experiencing the same thing.
My job has already seen the effects of suffering as I have to be constantly multi-tasking and/or focusing on one task for several hours at a time.
