I noticed The last time I had this dispensed, that the marking -30- on 13 out of 60 tablets were upside down relative to the front of the tablet. I have never noticed this before, and I also noticed a complete lack of efficacy. I take this for narcolepsy. The date it was dispensed was December 4, 2020. ## There is no specific way the marking has to be, it is solely dependent on how the pills fell into the press at that particular manufacturing facility. However, I am sorry about the issue you had with efficacy. Has this ever happened, before? Have you spoken to your doctor? You may need a dosage adjustment. The FDA warns that Adderall carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, nervousness, and hyperactivity. ## Hey...

What is this drug? ## I need to know the characteristics of the drug. ## Sorry, this is not available in the U.S. and finding information on foreign drugs is almost impossible. I suggest you ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. ## This is the mexican prescription for ADHD ## I believe Tradea is mexican methylphendiate, aka drugs such as ritalin. ## In Mexico, I asked for adderal and this is what they gave instead. ## me is right, Tradea* is a mexican generic Metilfenidato (methylphendiate) Ritalin. ## Tradea is a name brand Ritalin. The same company Psychofarma makes generic Metilfenidato, and if is not as good ## When I was in Mexico, I had requested Adderal and they gave me this. When I was in the states and asked my shrink, he didn't know and gave me Ritalin. Not t...

According to the following article from Walgreens (dated February 2023), there are a number of key factors that may be influencing potential drug shortages when it comes to Adderall and other popular prescription medications as well; including but not limited to post-pandemic supply chain constraints (such as manufacturing issues and other industry-controlled factors, such as raw materials), increased consumer demand, and federally regulated rules surrounding certain medications, to name a few. [1] [2] Walgreens themselves go on to admit that pharmacists should be the ones keeping their providers informed on drug shortages to ensure patients can get the medicines they need as quickly as possible - whereas in some instances, a medication may be available, but the specified dosage is no...

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...

I have had two refills of Adderall 20 mg that was manufactured by Teva/barr (Teva) and it seems to have much less medication in each pill. Refills by another manufacturer work. This is ridiculous, and where do we report Teva and who can check each pill for amount for medication? I would gladly donate some of my worthless ones to the FDA? ## You'd have to report any complaints to the FDA, at 888-INFO-FDA. However, there may not actually be anything to report. They do allow generic medications to differ from the name brands, in the amount of the active ingredient, by up to plus or minus 20%. This is considered an acceptable therapeutic window. For most people, these differences don't cause any problems, but if someone is sensitive to medications, it means that one with a slightly ...

I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

I was a person in recovery from opioid addiction when I found a medicine that controls the root cause of my addiction. Three years passed in which not only did I stay clean, but I also went from retail to corporate hourly to salaried employment. Then I relapsed and was honest with my physician about the situation, and she cut me off my Mydayis. With this new corporate job, the responsibility as a parent, and all that used to be too much that I'd use, is becoming that way again. Please help me find a doctor in the Indiana 46219 zip code who knows the difference between a mistake and a genuine change in lifestyle.

5-6 20 mg tablets of adderall 20mg tablets time released over two days, po ## Amphetamines are usually detectable for about 5 days, after last dosing, in standard urine tests and only about 12 hours in blood tests. Learn more Adderall details here. Are there any other questions? ## I took 9 20mg adderall over the past 5 days an got a drug test coming up within the next 2 days. 3 of the adderall were yellow an the rest were orange. How long will they stay in my system. ## I took 6 - 5mg of amphetamine salts in a period of 4 days (my last does being yesterday morning).

My son is 22 and has adhd but we can't find a doctor to give him adderall. ## Hello, Jayne! How are you? Adderall is a controlled substance that has addictive potential, so if you're contacting doctors and asking them to prescribe it, they are going view that as being drug seeking behavior and refuse. What he really needs to do is set up an appointment with a doctor to discuss his issues, get a proper diagnosis and see what they offer as his treatment options. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Jayne, I don't know if you found a Dr to give it to your son yet but my Dr will write them but I DON'T want to put that info out here. {edited for privacy} ## {edited for privacy} ## {edited for privacy} ## Hi Tony, my dr decided to stop my adderall & klonopan when ...

Sandoz is the best generic ir adderall I've used. August 11, 2017 I was told by the pharmacist they no longer produce this product. I asked if brand name was available and was told yes. When I received them I noticed they were made by Teva and let me tell you they are awful. I don't know what to do if I can't find a decent generic brand. ## Activis (spell check?) is pretty good. I also went from Sandoz to Teva, not by choice, and hated it. Then I tried Activis, and I'm happy with it. ## That's strange if it is discontinued but CVS just gave me Sandoz Adderall today 9/5/2017 , I had requested corepharma because previously they gave me Mylan brand, which was Bad. I did well on corepharma but the only generic they could get was Sandoz. ## It is possible that just that p...

Adderall 20mg ir teva brand/VS/Lannett pharmaceuticals. Today, Walgreens filled my refill with a different brand instead of my usual teva they gave me a brand i never heard of before Lannett pharmaceuticals it says. They are the same shape and size but the color is a lighter shade of peach AND the sweet taste is chalky instead!...not happy. The imprint is 2/0(e). Since it's later in the day I only took one 20mg ir.two hours ago and zip..so far..granted i woke up a little bit so that's a plus..does anyone else have an opinion on this newer generic version of adderall? Oh the price was cheaper the cost for 60 20mg tablets was $20+ change..I'd rather pay for the teva which usually costs me about $34 for the same that's my cost with insurance. ## I also received these exact ...

I always go to the same pharmacy to get my prescriptions filled, but this time, I was on my way to school so I stopped at a different pharmacy and got my adderall filled there. My usual pills are generic 10mg, as are these new ones. My normal pill bottle reads: Amphetamine Salts 10mg, gen for Adderall 10mg tablet. take one tablet twice a day. These are made by Caraco Pharmaceuticals, I believe (well that's what the bottle says, so I'm assuming that's what it means). They are a turquoise-ish color, and round. The new bottle of generic pills that I just received has the same information except it says they are made by Corepharma Jtk. They are vivid blue. These new pills do not seem as effective at all. I feel like I can barely concentrate. I don't know what to do. How do I...

My usual pharmacy was out of the orange pills, forcing me to resort to the pink ones, a decision I regret and will never repeat. They're less expensive, which might explain why they opt for them. I've been on a routine of 30 mg twice a day for years and have never required an increase. Though there is another pharmacy within a 25-mile radius, I never felt the need to go there until now, realizing the pink generics are ineffective for my condition! I lack energy, struggle to focus, and am frustrated that I forgot how ineffectual these pink pills are for me. Despite taking three pills today, there was no improvement. I'm not seeking a high. I genuinely have ADD, and the upcoming month looks bleak until I can refill my prescription for the orange pills. Can anyone else relate? ...

What is a small white pill with A/B on one side and the back side has multiple half circles? I think it could be labeled as "Metilfenidato", or a foreign add medication similar to adderall. ## I don't have a source to identify foreign pills, unfortunately. But, I can tell you that this is Spanish for Methylphenidate, which is the active ingredient in Ritalin. Ref: Ritalin Information The FDA warns that this class of medications carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, nervousness, and loss of appetite. Is anyone familiar with this tablet?

found round peach pill with P75 on one side and nothing on the other side ## I found a round peach pill with P75 on one side and nothing on the other in my teenage son's room. I've been looking around the web and no one seems to know what it is. I need to find out fast because my 4 year old was in his room snooping around the other day. ## IT MAYBE ADDERALL 20MG IF IT'S ROUND P75 ## no it says its for pain. ## Peach pill P and 75 below it, blank on other side, this is generic acid reducer pill. ## The tablet with the P 75 marking contains 75mgs of Diclofenac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling.

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...

I was taking Barr Dextroamphetamine Sulfate for 12 years. This medication was a miracle drug for me as it lowered my blood pressure, increased my focus, attention, and breathing. About three years ago, my medication "disappeared" without warning or notice. No one would tell me the truth until I found my drug at a pharmacy two hours away. After receiving the medication twice, the pharmacist said he could no longer get it for me because my $50 generic shot up to $500 overnight. I have been forced to try other generics, but none compared to Barr. Teva bought Barr, and I was able to get it periodically... except when the government planned a "shortage" three months ago. I received my medication, however, the whole 180 pills were ineffective. Before that, the other "Adder...

I agree with you 100% about them not seemig to work. I thought it was just me. I've been presiscribed for 10 years and the meds have always helped. They turned my life around. Until my pharmacy started carrying these weird crescent symbol 28 pills. I don't know what or why but they don't seem to work at all for me. ## I agree totally I have been on the 30s for years now and never had a problem. These do not work at all!! ## Concerning the differences in efficacy, my theory is that it's more than likely due to whatever discrepancies are found within the list of inactive ingredients, since that's usually the only thing that changes when you switch from one manufacturer's tablet to another. The round orange/peach-colored 30mg Adderall tablet by Actavis (With a Natio...

My phyciatrist that was treating me for my ADD & Anxiety up and left all of his patients last year, never to be seen again. I found another Dr within a couple weeks who was willing to continue my treatment. Then in April/May 2017,I lost my insurance, and there was no way I could afford the visit PLUS the medications. I take 30mg of Adderall 2x's a day and 2mg Xanax 3 x's a day (have all medication history for the past 2 years to back this up). Now that i have insurance again i need a Dr b/c my previous Dr is booked for the next 6 months. At this point i don't care if i have to pay cash for the initial visit, my medications are covered so it's not as difficult. Every Dr I've called so far is either not accepting new patients, even when i said i'd pay cash, or ...

Has anyones child stopped growing on AdderallXR. My son was always tall for his age and because of the decrease in appetite he seems to be slowing in growth. Our md just checks his weight not his height ## Yes, my son has only grown 1/8 of an inch in the last six months on Adderall XR. We have been referred to a pediatric endocrinologist. He is almost 8 yrs. and has been on Adderall XR for 2 1/2yrs. ## My son stopped growing as well. He has been off for 3 months and grown and inch. Our pediatrician says it will take approx. 6 months to start growing again. We are now on intuniv. ## There are many other anecdotal reports that state this has occurred, and the child usually had to switch to a different medication.
