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. The medication is a mixture of amphetamine stereoisomer salts and inactive ingredients. By salt content, the active ingredients are 75%dextroamphetamine salts (the dextrorotary or "right-handed" enantiomer)...

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 ...

New Generic 30 Mg Adderall Xr (all orange w/ R 3061 on them ) Not As Effective
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...

Adderall shortage
My 11 y/o is on Adderall and when I went to CVS the other day, was told they don't have any. I have called two other pharmacies to find out they don't have it either. This happened a couple of years ago and we couldn't get any for weeks. It seems there is no recourse or way around this problem, and it is shocking that no one (Dr, pharmacy, pharmaceuticals) seems to be in touch with this issue of how it affects the patient when all of a sudden they do not have their medication. The body should be weaned slowly and an abrupt discontinuation can really affect the patient. We try to not give him Adderall one or two days over weekends whenever possible, and then store the extra. In our case, we are lucky at this time that we have some back-up! One CVS here in Orlando, FL just tol...

i am prescribed adderall 60mg day i recieved a round pink scored pill with cor 135 never did it work
Seemed not to work as well as the orange generic, could u possibly tell me why the pink cor 135 never worked ## The tablet with the for 135 marking is a 20mg tablet. So, were you taking 3 of them a day? If you were only taking it twice a day, then that could be why it didn't work, you were only taking 40mgs daily with those tablets, rather than 60mgs. Learn more Adderall details here. ## do not use core pharma 'pink' generic. my doctor writes it on my script Teva owns all rights to manufacture adderall and the generic under 'barr' its recently acquired company. shire, the original patent owner sold rights to Teva in favor of retaining rights to Vyvanase. check FDA website Brand (Teva) 20mg Adderal is more consistent, so I take 1/2 at a time IR but still notice a huge...

Is Cor 136 Pink Adderall Any Good
Is this adderall any good? I've never seen or tried this one. What happened to the "good old adderall" that worked so great for so many years? Need feed back..hopefully, positive ## It contains 30mgs of Mixed Amphetamine salts, so it's a generic for Adderall, however, whether or not it works for you is something you can only discover by trying it for yourself. I am not sure what you are referring to as the 'good old Adderall', but it is likely that this one was just available cheaper than the others, when your pharmacy had to restock their supply. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Sorry..I read this n jus had to comment...."the good old adderall" that their referring to is the "REAL ADDERALL 30MG ORANGE FOOTBALL SHAPED ONES THAT ABSOLUTELY...

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...

Teva Adderall
i was taking adderall 10 mg by mouth 3 times a day. Manufactured by Teva. I can't find it at local pharmacy. Anyone know how i can get my medication? ## Hi Shery, I went onto Teva's manufacturer webpage and found a photo of their 10mg Adderall pill (just scroll down a bit): I'm thinking you can simply email the company (using the contact link on their website) and ask them about the pill's availability in your area. Generally, if it is not available, the pharmacy can have it shipped there for your prescription or they can provide you with a different brand/generic of the same drug. Studies show that there are no differences in the quality or effectiveness of generic drugs vs brand name drugs. For more info on this comparison, you can visit the link below: Please post bac...

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...
