My adderall experience: worth it!
1 Reply RSS
I had ADD, no focus, all-day compulsive overeating, & night heartburn. Now, on 20mg Adderall upon waking, wait 1 hr to eat, then 20mg at 1pm (watch alarm) to get thru day. No other mental/emotional issues, stable life. It wakes up certain part of the brain, foggy/blank before. Used coffee but acid and tolerance buildup were problems. My pulse 60-66, & blood pressure 105/60 ideal, didn't worry about heart problems. Initially my heart raced and leg nerve agitation at night, but current side effects: Vision prescription (nearsighted) worse .25 ea eye, tried Oasis contacts for dryness, but silicon irritated eyes so back to Acuvue 2, wear only 12 hrs. Lightheadedness: always CAREFUL rising from laying, sitting or squatting position and avoid Adderall while on OTC allergy or antih...

Been taking these generic cor 132 for adhd and they make me feel like crap. Ive got no choice but to try taking them in another form. I dont get new scripts for three weeks. I can't believe I get rolled by the pharmacy company. Now I believe the hype. Lesson learned. ## Hello, Dave! How are you? These tables are manufactured by Core Pharmaceuticals and they list them as containing 10mgs of mixed amphetamine salts, which is a generic for Adderall. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, mood swings, weight loss, nervousness and insomnia. What type of problem are you having with them? How are they making you feel like crap?

why are my levels for adderall high ?
1 Reply RSS
My urine levels are 23,000 for adderall , i have hep c could this be why they are high ? ## Hi Denise, The presence of hepatitis C affecting your levels could be one theory, depending on the health of your liver. According, both Adderall XR and IR are metabolized through the liver, and from what I could gather, also indicates that hepatitis C can result in liver damage (decreased liver function). So putting two and two together, this leads me to believe that liver simply isn't metabolizing the Adderall as quickly; potentially causing it to accumulate with frequent dosing. However, I'd still be interested to hear feedback from other individuals who may going through something similar. I hope this helps!

The marking is actually AD 10, this tablet is manufactured by Shire US Inc. and they list it as being a 10mg Adderall tablet, which is most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy.

Is there anything else I can help with? ## It had ad01 not ad10 ## Both on the same side of the pill or on opposite sides?

Adderal manufactured by Teva not working
27 Replies RSS
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 rediculous and where do we report Teva and who can check each pill for amount fo 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 lo...

I was diagnosed with ADD now at the age of 44. Ive been taking Adderall 10mg in the morning and 10mg after 1pm, but I don't see a change in the focusing. I have the side effects nothing else. People tell me that they see a difference in half hr to one hr but I don't, is it the milligrams or the fact that I take a low dosage twice a day? ## Hello, Lizzy! How are you? It could be that you need a higher dosage, or it might be that this isn't the right medication for you to take, not all of them work for everyone that tries them, so you may need to switch to a different one. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia and nervousness. It also carries the risk of being habit forming.

Generic Vs Brand Meds of Adderall.
30 Replies RSS
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 ...

I need my meds!! ## Hello, Jess! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having.
