In brief: Shortage?
Were you short on your script? There has been a shortage of a number of suppliers of ritalin, (methylphenidate) but not concerta.
.. And this is generally a pharmacy issue. Seek clarification from your dr re: why he or she is not prescribing this anymore.

In brief: What's the diagnosis
What's your diagnosis? Add/adhd/sleep apnea/chronic fatigue? It's important to know because other options depend on the correct one.
I am not aware of shortage of concerta, but even if there is one, it's not the only medication that is used, say for add/adhd. There are amphetamines, strattera, wellbutrin (bupropion) (second line), Clonidine used after all. It's not the end of the world (yet))!
