Which Generic Adderall 30mg Ir Is Best In 2022?



I've been taking TEVA for the past 9 years since it's the only one that has had any benefit since CorePharma has been unavailable. Zydus doesn't work and Barr never worked. What's the most effective manufacturer these days and which retailers make it available? I've been taking 30mg IR generic Adderall.

Thanks in advance.

Yes I miss CorePharma, they were a great generic. Teva USED to be good but my most recent two fills have been Teva and this is ridiculously poor quality… I’ve fallen asleep multiple times during the day. There are also many bad reviews online for the last few months about Teva. It seems like a sudden dramatic drop for them. Sugar pill? What happened, Teva?!!!!.. Prior to this, I liked Lannett but now Walgreens doesn’t have it for some reason. Sandoz is okay. Just avoid Aurobindo. Sometimes they are called Northstar. Lots of bad mood issues.

I hear that Sandoz is still available in some places. I'm going to try them. Fingers crossed.

I get sandoz 20 mg from CVS Bensalem PA. They have it in stock here but I have to ask for it & my Dr writes Sandoz brand necessary on the script.

Teva but Kroger just switched me to Camber. It is worse than ineffective it is making me extremely depressed, irritable and physically exhausted. I have brain lock.

I was able to get 30mg /Sandoz from a small pharmacy in my area. Unfortunately, I find it to be as ineffective as Zydus. I plan to go back to Teva as that's currently the only one I've found to have any effect. :(

I get TEVA from Walgreens. It's ok to contact pharmacies to see if they can get you the mfg version that you want. I also use goodrx to save money on the scripts.

the Teva just started last week (4/7/22) makes me both want to shluf/sleep and makes me edgy.

I switched back to Walgreens since Kroger in my area are only carrying Camber. They bluntly told me the corporate office said switch to Camber it’s cheaper. So no other generic at my Kroger at least until Camber runs out or gets pulled from the market. Camber just got approved or started manufacturing generic Adderall IR in January 2022. So my guess is they’re undercutting other suppliers to get a better market share. I have been on same dosage of Adderall IR for over 10 years so I have dealt with all the supply issues the pharmacies have in keeping in stock what I consider the ones that work best for me: Teva being number one, Sandoz number two. I agree avoid Aurobindo. But especially Camber. I take 40 mg in the am before work then by 11:00 I desperately want to nap. I’m unfocused and irritable and slow. Told my doctor and other patients are experiencing same problems. But worst side effect is a flat affect and depression. Bad depression. Walgreens has Teva and Lannet. Can’t wait to dump these Cambers before I jump off a bridge. I was fair, I gave it a month and a half and depression getting worse. I can be depressed all by myself I don’t need Cambers help. I’m depressed NOW because I can’t think analytically for any sustained period of time, and I have zero tolerance for frustration. My mood range is sleepy to grumpy and dumb! It actually makes me feel dumb. Like extreme brain lock. I really want this drug analyzed by the FDA. Why are drug companies allowed to go unchecked and make millions using us as Guinea pigs. I don’t take Adderall to party or pull all-nighters. My doctor believes I need it to function cognitively. I really think since it’s a level 2 controlled substance the FDA and pharmacies think it’s not serving a legitimate medical need. I keep hearing switch to Vyvanse or this drug etc., FDA please do your job occasionally. And SOME pharmacists, not most, but some need to go back and apply to med school if they want to override a doctor’s decision and act like patients are imagining that some generics suck.

I too am on Teva. I was off Adderall for about a year and a year ago Adderall was working wonders 30mg 2x a day but now Im back on it. My doctor prescribed me 10mg 2x a day with Teva. Took it... nothing! Then a month later he increased my dose to 15mg 2x a day.... nothing! And I was on Alvogen. Then I figured ill give Teva another try at 15mg.. .nothing! Just always tired! Seems like all the manufacturers are CRAP in 2022! Anyone recommend a certain manufacturer? I want to protest!

Found out today- 6/16/22 that my Walgreens in San Diego has changed to dispensing a generic adderall IR made by Camber. A new maker to me.

My last Rx was by Mallinkordt (sp?). My dosage these past 12 yrs has been 20mg 2x a day— their white round pill didn’t bring about sharp clarity of thinking, wore off fast & my brain always felt hazy.

Previously, 20 mg IR generics by Teva or Lannett have worked most excellently for me. Wishing these were is better supply.

Hi there. I use CVS pharmacy too for my generic adderall. You can call your pharmacist and ask them to switch your adderall to your preferred manufacturer like Sandoz. I have been on Sandoz for bout 2 yrs now. I sure miss CorePharma brand! That, to me, was the BEST generic adderall.

Re: Zman86 (# 10) Expand Referenced Message

Yes! I'd love to protest!!! To me, generic adderall by CorePharma was the best but CorePharma was bought by Teva. Why Teva did not adopt CorePharma's "recipe" is beyond me! Now I switch from Sandoz to Teva then Teva to Sandoz after months or a year from one brand to another. It seems to plateau after being on one brand.

Make sure before you fill your next refill , call your pharmacist and tell them to switch you to a manufacturer you prefer and tell them why. I use CVS pharm and so far they do.

My Fry’s switched to Camber too. It’s working ok for me, not great. I miss the ones that had an orange candy taste. The B ones. Those were always the best for me personally.

Re: Jorge (# 15) Expand Referenced Message

The orange ones with a B were made by Barr. They worked for me, too, unlike the horrid Camber generic.

Exactly everything you said is just like looking in a mirror. I don’t party and my new meds have made me so depressed I can’t take it. All I do is stay in bed. I hate it like my life is just passing me by.

Sounds more like a commentary on your drug-dealing idiot friends than it does the efficacy of a medication that has dramatically improved my life and the lives of millions of others. While it’s the internet (and thus, to be expected) maybe STFU about things that you don’t know anything about. It’s a better way to live.

Most people do not know this but Barr makes Adderall for Teva.

If you look at the FDA'S current Orange Book, it includes all manufacturers currently making the drug. Barr is one.

Re: Zman86 (# 10) Expand Referenced Message

No one needs Adderall. Another pharmaceutical program perpetuated by addicts. You know how I know? Because every single person I know that gets a prescription filled sells just about everyone of them, even though they were diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. If all these people really needed them to make functioning in life so much better, why would you sell them for $5 a pop? Because they don't really need them, they just like the Adderall high, but the smart ones like addict's $ more.

Yes. I have always thought Teva was the most potent generic until I was given Northstar.

However, many people on the internet have given Northstar a very poor review.

I have taken almost all of the generic Adderall IR brands, and while I still feel that Teva is the most efficacious, my second choice would be Northstar.

It is, as you say, very potent.

Teva is the same as Barr, hence the b on the tablet.

I have been on this medicine since 2009. I have NEVER felt like I could not take a specific generic until I had Camber. I do not understand how FDA approved Camber to make generic adderall. It has caused me daily migraines, brain fog, and exhaustion. I would almost do better with nothing at all than Camber.

Re: Zman86 (# 10) Expand Referenced Message

I’ve had the same trouble for the last 8 months or so. Can’t remember all of the manufacturer’s but Camber and Malinkroidt (I’m sure I misspelled that)are absolutely horrible both made me tired increased anxiety and caused stomach problems along with a few other issues. This month I had to go with Epic and surprisingly it has worked very well and on par with Teva. No more headaches, stomach issues or brain fog which I’ve encountered with at least four other generics. Give epic a try if you can’t find what usually works for you.
