White Octagon Pill M 20 Adderall Reviews

Has anyone else tried the white octagon M 20 Adderall pill? Also, why is one pill described as 5 mg and the other 7.5 mg? Are they still the 20 mg the doctor ordered? ## A white eight-sided pill with [M] on one side and "20" on the other reportedly contains 20mgs of Amphetamine / Dextroamphetamine. (NDC 00406-8893). If your pill doesn't fit this description, then it may be something different. Does your tablet have any other markings outside of the capital M? Also, what shape is your pill? For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Mallinckrodt. Inactive Ingredients: - Microcrystalline Cellulose - Silicon Dioxide - Povidone - Stearic Acid Ref: DailyMed I hope this helps add some level of clarification. ## I've been taking 30mg generic Adderall for 17 years. They hav...

Mallinckrodt Adderall Quality

I have been taking Adderall for many years and I've never noticed a smell or taste. However, my most recent Rx (same generic manufacturer as normal, Mallinckrodt) has a *very* strong smell, like a multi-vitamin, and terribly disgusting taste. I even took it back into the pharmacy to make sure I wasn't losing my mind, she agreed but couldn't figure out why. They are the white, Dextroamp-Amphetamin 15 mg tab. Has anyone else had this issue? ## I am not sure because I refuse to take that one. They’re SUPER weak compared to Teva. ## They don't change the drug - they reformulate the drug... ## Can you elaborate because I noticed that with the 20s and for the record I'm currently prescribed Vyvanse, but sometimes switch back to Adderall and the 20s seem to work bette...

Adderall IR 20 mg Aurobindo, Teva or Sandoz

I have a prescription for 20 mg Adderall IR and my generic options are Aurobindo, Teva or Sandoz. Which one of these would you recommend? I've read posts that say Aurobindo is the worst but seems to be the one most pharmacies are pushing (or stock) right now. My script is for 90 pills so I can try 20 mg a day or cut one in half and try 30mg/day to find what works best for me. I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks. ## It may be a challenge tell you which one will work best for you, since we are all different. For example, I've always done well with Teva medications, but someone else may feel the same about the ones from Sandoz. I am also rather indifferent to the ones from Aurobindo, no results to brag about but also no complaints. Also, since the Hatch-Waxman act of 1984 was p...

Adderall Backorder

I take generic Adderall 20 mg for narcolepsy and there is not one local pharmacy that has it in stock. I have never had this problem before. The pharmacies are saying that it's on backorder from the manufacturer. Is anyone else having problems getting their scripts filled? ## I live in Southern NH. I can't find a pharmacy anywhere around here that can get Adderall in any dose from Teva and Barr Pharmaceuticals. My psychiatrist was apparently completely unaware of this situation when he wrote the prescription earlier today, 10/18/2011. I run out in 4 days but am on a very low dose (5mg twice a day) so I may be able to wean off of it safely by cutting back to 5mg once a day, then nothing. I wonder how many people taking higher doses are going to have major problems with withdrawal...

Best Generic Adderall Brands

Is the round pink 30 mg Adderall generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg Adderall generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/potent Adderall that is generic and 30 mg? ## Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each of these brands, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's quite possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug & same dosage); mostly due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Have you taken either one of them yet? I'd probably suggest giving them e...

multiple prescriptions, with Adderall (safety)

I am a 100% disabled veteran and have been on pain management for about 13 years. (80MG METHADONE daily... yes for pain, 6mg HYDROMORPHONE daily for break-through pain, 1.5 mg day CLONAZAPAM as sleep aid/anxiety and 1200 mg day GABAPENTIN for servered nerves,. I have been ADHD since childhood and none of the meds I am taking helps with the inability to function as a cognitive goal achieving, motivated person. I am habituated to my Narcs and am not affected by the typical side effects, nor do I experience euphoria, and I do use my meds as prescribed. My V.A. Doctor has referred me to mental health for evaluation and perhaps an ADDERALL prescription. I AM CONCERNED about the Adderall affecting the effectiveness of my Opiates to work as well as they still do for pain relief. Will the Narco...

MP 447 vs Adderall

It is both dextroamphetamine and amphetamine combined. Not quite as strong as the orange 30 mg adderall pill but still a stimulant used for adhd and narcolepsy. ## The MP 447 tablet is manufactured by Sun Pharmaceuticals and it is a 30mg generic for Adderall that contains mixed amphetamine salts. NDC Code: 57664-647 / 53489-0570 (Discontinued) Inactive Ingredients: - Crospovidone - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Povidones - Starch, Corn - D&c Yellow No. 10 Be it the brand or generic, FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, and anorexia. Ref: DailyMed ## Any idea if these are similar to the 30mg Teva oval tablets? Besides the fact that they'...

Methylphenidate backorder

I live in southwest Florida and I have not been able to get my Rx in over a month now! I'm frustrated. Is anyone else having this problem? Thanks for your feedback! P.S. I take 20mg x 3 daily IR. ## When this occurs towards the end of a year, and into the beginning of the next, it is usually due to manufacturing production limits of controlled substances. Each manufacturer is allowed a set amount that they can manufacture each year. These amounts are set according to sales, and demand from the previous year. This was done to help keep better track of the supply of these substances, and to try to prevent theft, and diversion. Unfortunately, most years, using figures from the prior year does not always meet the demand for the new year, and shortages occur. A company can request specia...

Just started Vyanse and have questions

I'm so happy I found an active forum. Been googling all kinds of search terms because I am new to this medication and would love feedback and advise. I'm 52 and started on 30mg. I told my doctor I didn't feel much after only two days of that fun high. After only one week he upped me to 60mg. I am bipolar and take meds for that, depression, anxiety and under active thyroid. I'm thinking this dose is too strong. I'm feeling anxious and agitated after only 4 hours. Now it's been a total of 8 1/2 hours and still anxious but also really tired and zoned out. Any thoughts? Do I keep going hoping this side effect will go away? If I do how many days does it take? Or should I go back to 30 until I see my doctor in 3 days? Oh I'm also taking 500mg twice daily for weight...

Epic Pharma Adderall Review

Epic Pharma Adderall does not seem to work at all no matter the dosage. Anyone else experience this? ## I haven’t tried this one. I try to only get Teva because the other ones don’t work well for me. Please report this to the FDA medwatch. You can do it online. They may be bad like the Aurobindo brand. ## We are all different, so which manufacturer's products work for each of us may differ. Adderall is a stimulant medication that is most commonly used to treat ADHD, shift-work sleep disorder, and narcolepsy. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, and insomnia. Ref: Adderall Information What other manufacturer's products have you tried? ## I just wanted to add I recen...
