please share your experience with this never seen before, less effective drug that two different pharmacy's have given to me in last two months. they make me fall asleep! ## Hi shaun, When you switch brand names or manufacturers, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the binders or fillers that they put with it. Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each brand, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. Because everyone is different, your body may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they're both Adderall Xr), due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Although I haven't taken this medication, I can say that they probably have an array of...

Today I picked up my 20mg x 2 daily adderall IR Instead of my usual adderall made by teva brand i was given a new type that I have never had before... It's supposedly a newer generic version from Lannett pharmaceuticals. It looks just like teva accept it's a lighter shade of peach color and it doesn't have that sweet flavor. It's more chalky like..its early evening and I decided to try one two hours have gone by and still nothing. Humm my question is has anyone else had the opportunity to try these newer version of adderall 20mg from Lannett pharmaceuticals? I will come back in a hour or so and give an update..oh i read a different blogpost and have read that some actually liked it better than teva brand but wished for the sweet taste but they claimed to like it so let...

I have been on Barr/Teva dexedrine sulfate, [generic] for 14 years. After 5 "shortages" I recently received back my script, butt it's a placebo !!!! Nothing at all. I took 25 10 miligram tabs; nothing at all. It's an unethical and disgusting scam. Am writing every politician, fda, Quality control, anyone who can address the monster of a crime. ## I feel the same way. The Dex 10's that were given to me had to be abused to have any effect. There is some FAKE crap out there. I have narcolepsy and took 60mg of adderall cor brand and never woke up. I feel sorry for kids with ADD and being forced to take a fake pill thinking its real only to screw up there homework and ultimately their lives. Something is Rotten in the generic stimulant area. FDA could give two s***s less ...

I've tried and used Teva/Barr, Lannett, Core pharma, AURO (worst imo), and now just got Rhodes. Not sure if Rhodes is making me spacey, sleepy, anxious and low energy, bloated, headache. All are often indications that the active ingredients are meh. There are so many manufacturers out nowadays, it's a revolving door and it's adding to the already difficult challenges many people have experienced since the pandemic. Lordy. Rhodes? Anyone? ## How are you doing taking the product from Rhodes, now? Has there been any change? The FDA considers all generic medications to be therapeutically equivalent. They warn that Adderall carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, anorexia, mood changes, and anxiety. Ref: Adderall Informmatio...

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...

Has anyone had this problem? I had been on adderall for a couple of month and then was taken off of adderall and put on vyvanse. Since then, I have notice my pH vaginal balance is off. Can anyone tell me, if this is a side effect? This is affecting me and my partner. ## Samantha, I think I'm having the same issue. I struggle to keep my vaginal pH balanced. I see that noone's responded here. If you find out something, please post... and I'll do the same. Thanks. ## I have been having the same problem since I stated taking vyvanse approximately six months ago. I am on my fifth or sixth antibiotic for it and also take probiotics. It is affecting my relationship with my husband as well. Im thinking of going off of vyvanse but it really helps me with ADHD like no other stimulant ...

Can someone please advise me on what to take when you are stressed (between Xanax, Adderall and Oxycodone)? ## Well, certainly don’t take the Adderall. Oycodone is for pain. Xanax will work for stress management in the short term. Bet in mind that we’re talking about addictive, controlled medications. Your doctor would Not be happy with this. But, Xanax will work for anxiety. ## Shaun, Adderall is for those diagnosed with ADHD not for those looking to abuse it for a temporary high and to avoid their daily anxieties. Please stop abusing drugs and go to therapy.

I recently filled an Adderall prescription while I was in Mexico and they are little white round pills with a bold "LN" printed on one side. Are these a legitimate brand of this medicine? ## I've done some research and the problem I've found with these pills is that people have purchased small, white round tablets with the bold LN marking as various medications in Mexico. There are posts online listing them as Phentermine, Adderall, Xanax and several others. This isn't the first time this has happened and I doubt it will be the last. However, in light of that, no I have no idea what these are, but I certainly wouldn't trust them to be Adderall. ## So there is no way of finding out what pill it actually is... I took it and it felt like an "upper" (an amphe...

Hey guys. Most of us are probably in the same boat--our Adderall doesn't work and it's horrible and we can't function well and it's bull**** and we all know that, but there are other threads/forums to vent frustration. We need a thread with the basics to help us all get going again or to know what to avoid (even though that seems like all of them these days, ha.) PLEASE POST THE FOLLOWING: 1. MANUFACTURER OF YOUR RECENT ADDERALL PRESCRIPTION 2. XR OR IR? HOW MANY MG? COLOR/SHAPE/IMPRINT? (if possible) 3. ***PHARMACY NAME*** AND MONTH/YEAR OF SCRIPT 4. YOUR LOCATION (if you are comfortable with that) 5. SIDE EFFECTS/SYMPTOMS. GOOD? BAD? Generally speaking, chain pharmacies use the same manufacturer at all of their locations throughout the country and that will make it eas...

Which is the better generic company? I just got GLOBAL and they are like taking sleeping pills. I'm sleeping 20 to 24 hours a day for days. If I didn't need to pee, I might never wake up. Can any body help me before I go back to sleep? ## Ive never heard of anybody falling asleep on adderall thats really weird....ur the first one i heard of that slept on them...maybe its intensifying another medication u take. I would talk to a doctor and tell them it done a friend like that u dont have to say u done that...goodluck ## Everyone is different. Been taking it for 15+ years and still have different reactions with the many brands or foods/drinks. Magnesium is another . Maybe get ir not the xr. xr drags the dose out over time. I hate the XR for this reason. Maybe its time to up your d...

I live with a questionable character who I have caught red handed taking my meds from me. I am prescribed amphetamine salts 30 mg xr, generic for adderall. They are orange and clear capsules filled with orange beads. The time I caught him I found that he had taken the pill apart and ingested the beads, then put the pill back together so I wouldn't know...really sneaky. I am worried that he has been stealing from me again. I got a lock box and have really been trying to monitor and count my meds and I noticed one was missing, which was really suspicious. I think he also has been pulling the pills apart and putting them back together again...I am noticing that there is some irregularity in the pill appearances; namely amount of beads inside (though I have heard there is a margin of er...

I am very concerned and confused about why generic Adderall brands are so all over the place!! I usually get Aurora brand and I'm fine with it but last month I got this corpharma brand crap, it made my stomach ache and gave me a headache! It was terrible. Back on Aurora brand and I feel better again but wtf is up with this BS?! I'm thinking about having my dr write no substitutions on my script and just pay for the name brand adderall. I've tried it in the past and it is by far superior. Motivation, concentration, and energy are all together with minimal side effects. Anyone relate? ## Yep, it's a huge problem (variation in effectiveness) and it's gotten worse over the years. Main problem. With generics the FDA allows up to 20% difference in the "main", activ...

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...

Some of my capsules are filled all the way some are filled just a little and some are just half of the way which is the proper amount? ## Hi Kim, From what you've stated, it seems like they've been tampered with. I would probably call a local pharmacy and find out if these irregularities are normal. Something just doesn't sound right about each capsule containing what appears to be different doses; let alone the thought of being shorted on the full amount. Did you get this filled at a licensed pharmacy or come about it through some other means? I'm just curious because that would probably help determine their legitimacy. Thanks for any additional info you might have. ## I just got 30 day supply of 50 mg vyvanse & over half of my pills were half filled. This really ma...

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...

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...

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...

I may have found evidence that my 15yo girl is snorting her folacin xr, 20mgs. Is this even possible? How or rather why would she smash the luttle beads up? To snort them? What kind of high? Sincerely, Worried Mother ## That is very much possible. I'm prescribed 40 mg of focalin. Being a heaby drug user in the past i quickly looked it up, and snorting this drug is very much similar to speed, and usually gives a great euphoria. I used to snort it every day, and it made me feel great and speedy and all of that. So chances are, she's probably snorting her focalin like i did. ## Not a good idea and something that you need to disguss with her ASAP...They are time released; to help her throughought day. It will get into her system faster, (she's probably crushng the beads) but the...

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...
