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 inactive ingredients that are different than what you may be used to from past prescriptions.

I hope this helps!

i have only taken or seen one kind of this drug, the capsules that say amphetamine salts on the bottle, but now all of a sudden the pharmacy has come out with a new generic, all orange, that do not work for me like the others did! i even called the pharmacy ahead of time to make sure they were in stock. they lied and said yes, got there and they gave me 10 of the original that i normally take, then said they had to order more, went back a few days later and they gave me the all orange ones that i had told them did not work for me!! i have medicaid and medicare and now the same pharmacy is saying the script has to have something on it written by the dr. NOT TRUE FOR THE SALTS ARE GENERIC AS WELL!! i dropped of scripts for a 2 month supply and now they are telling me i have to just deal with the all orange!?!? i am furious and clueless as to what to do!

Ive been prescribed Adderall 30mg XR since I have been 17; I am 33 now and recently recieved the new generic Adderall 30mg XR. It is not nearly as effective as the brand name. Its very frustrating to just be switched and not have the pharmacy tell you.

I have had the same experience. I have been prescribed 20mg XR amphetamine salts for the last 6 years. Last night I had to work through the night to meet a deadline for work. Unfortunately my travel bag and prescription was lost by the airline when returning from out of town this week. My sister is also prescribed so I got a 30mg XR from her (10mg more than my regular dose). Just two hours after taking it I felt the need to brew a pot of coffee. Another hour later I began questioning the pill so much that i wondered if her Dr. may have prescribed her a plecebo or something, so I asked her what the imprint on the capsule looked like. The R3061 seems to have a strike through the R. I am now 4 hours into the pill and feel like I could fall asleep if I wanted to. I will make sure to never make this mistake again.

There is a new generic Adderall XR that is being manufactured by the company Actavis Elizabeth.

From what I was able to find out, there formula is: hydroxypropyl cellulose / sucrose / starch, corn / talc / triethyl citrate / methacrylic acid - methyl methacrylate copolymer (1:1) / methacrylic acid - methyl methacrylate copolymer (1:2) / fd&c blue no. 1 / gelatin / titanium dioxide / d&c yellow no. 10 / fd&c blue no. 2 / fd&c red no. 40 / ferrosoferric oxide / propylene glycol / shellac

This differs from the formula for brand name and previous generic Adderall XR, which is: gelatin / hypromelloses / methacrylic acid - methyl methacrylate copolymer (1:1) / sucrose / talc / triethyl citrate / ferric oxide red / ferric oxide yellow

I too find the new Actavis medication to be very ineffective compared to the other generic brands. I had some difficulty tracking down a pharmacy with the desired brand in stock, but having the right meds makes all the difference!

This may differ by state/doctor/etc. but my doctor was unable to specify one generic over another on the script so I had to work with the pharmacist to get what I wanted.

Good luck to you all!

Since starting this brand I too am exhausted, feel drugged, like I am dragging. I tried Vyvanse when it first came out and this is how I felt when I took the Vyvanse, only the Vyvanse was way worse.

It's so strange because the other day I saw the first one of these in the all orange capsule with the r 3061 and I freaked out on my dealer because I thought he was trying to fool me with some random drug but he swore he got them from him doctor so I looked it up a little and saw that it is an amphetamine and dextroamphetamine just like the adderall's I used to get from him so I was like oh well and took it today for work & I have to say it worked for me, almost as the regular 'amphetamine salts 30mg' did. I don't think any generic will ever compare though, lol... Definately not as strong but still does the trick. Then today I got more from someone else who ALWAYS had the regulars, and they too had these new all orange capsules. It's weird that kind of all at once they came out in replace of the other ones. I wonder why................................................

If anyone knows why suddenly they're giving out these
generic f***ers let me know lol

I am so glad to finally get reassurance that I'm not the only one who has been having issues with these new BS pills. Anon -- mine have a mixture of the balls and the white powder. This is why I originally got a bit worried about them. I was wondering if the manufacturer could have possibly made a mistake and screwed up. Honestly, this stuff is terrible. I can't even FEEL it when I take one of them. And it's supposedly 30 mgs! That's a lot! One souls absolutely feel that! I definately do when I take the normal ones. Today I took 3 x 30mg of these BS new R 3061 all orange ones and I had to get back into bed. Something needs to be done about this; I think these need to get taken off the market ASAP.

Actavis generic for Adderal xr 30mg is making me sleepy & lathargic! Hate it! A lil history... I am 38 just been diagnosed with ADHD tried Vyanse 20mg... made me lathargic... tried 3Omg same effect... I experimented by combining 20mg & 30mg to higher dose and hopefully get results. All doses made my tired until I hit 80mgs when I noticed a different effect. 1st time ever there was a quite ness in my head & I was relaxed (I think euphoric) but still didn't feel focused and my speech slowed down almost to a slur; so I upped to 90mg & 120 I found myself alert... finally not lathargic however it didn't do much in the focus dept. Went to my Doc told him effects at diff doses( kept a log) & he suggested we switch meds BCZ Vyvanse only goes up to 70mg so he suggested Adderal extended release 30mg. My pharmacy gave generic been taking for 1 week.. even took 1 30mg at 6am then another 30mg around 2pm but I don't see any results. Today was my day off and I expected to get quite a few things done. Took dose at 9am was back in bed at 11am its now 4:37pm and I'm still laying here with nothing accomplished. ( I got good sleep last night) so that isn't a question. I'm hoping the Brand name will have a better effect. For now guess I'll wait the remainder of 3 weeks b4 I can get a per script... any suggestions out there? Apparently I have high tolerance to meds...

To answer your question...Actavis XR 30mg has progressively made me more dosey, drowsy and made me just cuddle up and take ANOTHER nap that I don't even need, nor can I afford!.....I have been taking this for 1.5 werks now, and after taking the first capsule, I found it increasing my organization and focus perfectly with no anxiety or uncomfortable overly-driven obsessive behavior (hate the term...but some people would say 'cracked-out' feeling.).,..Super- The positive effects have only been reached 3 days out of 10 that I've been taking Actavis xr 30mgs. Not sure if the batch is not mixed properly or something because I have felt the original 'normal Adderall' effects of this capsule totally randomly 3/10 days I've taken it....same nutritional, sleep and all other conditions the same. I have some major work exams I need to be studying for and after taking this stupid capsule literally almost couldn't study if you paid me.....If I had a dollar for every nap I'm forced to take however....

I found these orange capsules in the room I was letting a friend of my son's stay with us. He smokes, but does not do pills. I can't make out what is before the 3061. It looks like a black arrow pointed up. I can't get my son to take a Tylenol when he has a headache.
I know I found one in his room and I asked his friends what it was. They said they did not know, but my son has a hard time sleeping. His friends told me my sons x-girlfriend gave it to him and told him it would help him sleep. Thank goodness he didn't. I flushed them, but am curious what she gave him and where this other bottle came from. They are in a prescription bottle, but everything has been scratched off the bottle, except a warning about driving until you know the effect of the drug. That roommate is gone, but I still, as a mother want to know what is transpiring in my house. I opened the capsule and it's little white beads. Can you tell me if this is adderall, or this new generic?

Thanks to all who have posted, it's a relief to know I'm not the only one. I'm prescribed 30 mg adderall and take 2 a day. The 'normal' generic effects: within about 45 minutes I'm awake and able to focus and get stuff done; either at work or at home. It lasts about 6 1/2 - 7 hours, then I take my 2nd one and I'm good to go until bedtime. With the 3061 generic, 45 - 60 minutes after taking it, I'm ready for a nap..seriously falling asleep...more like a took a sleeping pill than a stimulant. This needs to be reported to the FDA as there have been other cases of new generic drugs that do not work and have had life threathing results. I wonder how we go about doing this. The more reports the FDA gets, the stronger our case and maybe they'll actually take this seriously and get this generic off the market. If I find out how ...I will post it on this website. OH...almost forgot...I'm prescribed this for narcelypsy...as I have chronic severe anemia caused by mal-absorbtion due to gastric bypass surgery 9 years ago.
