Adderall Overview

Adderall[note 1] is a psychostimulant pharmaceutical drug of the phenethylamine class used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Adderall is also used as a performance and cognitive enhancer, and recreationally as an aphrodisiac and euphoriant.

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
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 ...

Adderal 30mg Generic Which Is Better The Orange Oval Or The Pink Round
Is there a difference in the potency of the generic oval orange 30mg and the generic round pink 30 mg? ## Hi Wendy, When you switch brand names or manufacturers, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the binders or fillers that they put with it. However I do want to mention that certain "inactive" ingredients (which may or may not be present in each brand) are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug and same dosage). I hope this info helps! Have you had a chance to take either of them yet? ## I have taken both the oval orange and the round pink 30mg generic adderall's. I prefer the pink ones but i"m having a...

aurobindo adderall
The worst. Don't get it filled ## 100% agreed!!!! I have been on Adderall generic IR since January 2014. Always filled @ CVS. All previous scripts were manufactured by TEVA. (Large football shaped, orange, sweet tasting & 30mg.) They worked great!!!! Until this past Wednesday (Aug 19th, 2014) I went to pick up my script as usual and didn't think anything of it until the next morning when I had to take one. It wasn't the same shape or taste. (This one was round, orange and a chalky bitter taste.) So I took my usual dosage and Bam Nothing happened, I was like WTF!!!! So I looked at the bottle and this new script was manufactured by Aurobindo. This pill does nothing! I've taken 4 pills total and am calling the pharmacy ASAP.... If you hear this pharmaceutical company...

octagonal white pill with m in a square on one side and 30 on other side
Please help me figure out what this is. Also, there are 4 score lines around the 30. I was told it is a brand new generic for Adderoll (sp?). I want to know with certainty. Thank you in advance for your help on this! ## Who told you it was a generic for Adderall? I've done some searching, but haven't been able to find a listing for anything matching this description, so far. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. ## The one whom it was prescribed to. They were surprised at the new shape, color, etc as well & said they asked the pharmacist about it when they picked it up. The pharmacist said they, too, hadn't seen the new medication form, but stated they researched it themselves & stated it was a new manufacturer of the generic for Adder...

Adderall on 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 goint to have major problems with withdrawal...

Adderall add doc in springfield, IL
I just found out my PCP is leaving my network for insurance and need a new dr that will be an easy transition and is not going to give me trouble about my adderall script. I don't take a lot 15mg twice daily and saw a psychiatrist in the past before getting on it but I know doctors can give people a hard time about this and hope to find one that isn't against the medicine etc. Can anyone else that is on this medication recommend a good doc? ## Hello, Michael! How are you? Due to the new regulations that have been put in place, a PCP will not be able to prescribe it for you, you'll need to see a specialist, which means seeing a psychiatrist, again. Adderall is a stimulant medication that is most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy, it carries the risk of being habit fo...

Need a doctor that prescribes adderall in Anderson, SC
I am looking for a doctor that prescribes adderall in Anderson, SC or surrounding area. Family doctor, psychiatrist, etc. Someone that can see me fast and doesn't charge $300. I know that's a lot to ask. I used to take adderall years ago, but lost my health insurance. Now that I have started working, my add is so horrible! Please help! It will be cash pay. Thank you! ## Hello, Kris! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Due to the new regulations that were put in place, you'll need to see a specialist to have such a medication prescribed, a general practitioner will not be able to prescribe it for you. Thus, I doubt you're going to find a cheap fee for an appointment and you will have to return monthly. This medication carries the risk of b...

safe way to dispose of adderall
Hi everyone I have like three bottles of # 20mg adderall that my daughter has stopped using and it would be a shame to just flush them down the toilet.I live in St Lucie county Florida maybe there is a clinic or children's psychiatric home that could use them? any suggestions would be helpful! thank you ## Hello, Trixie! How are you? No, I'm sorry, but due to risks of possible tampering, contamination and/or improper storage, they aren't allowed to make use of such medications. Thus, it would be best to dispose of them, but please do not flush them. This contaminates our ground water. To properly dispose of old medications, the FDA instructions say that you should mix them with some undesirable substance, such as used kitty litter or coffee grounds, then place them in a seal...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
Is the round pink 30 mg adderal generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg adderal generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/ potent adderal 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 eac...

Generic Vs Brand Meds of Adderall.
Hello All: Eight years ago I had a gastric bypass losing from 294# to 117# (too low for a 61 yr. old female). Currently 145# & feel good from weight standpoint. I have had many adversities from the bypass with 4 subsequent small bowel resections. I cannot absorb generic meds. This leads me to excess costs on all of my meds. I was changed from brand Lexapro to escitalopram (generic) in June and by Sept., I was suicidal and required intensive treatment until I could get the brand Lexapro. My insurance (Medicare Advantage Plan) is a nightmare to cover any of the brand named meds even when my Psychiatrist states Brand medically necessary. Am also taking Wellbutin SR 450mg/day which is over the recommended max. dose. Dr. is wanting to change me from Wellbutrin SR to Adderall 30mg hoping ...
