Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
328 Replies RSS
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 ...

2 half moon shapes at top left corner with #26 on same side,scored in middle ,with two smaller scores on opposite side,orange ## Hello, Donny! How are you? Yes, this tablet is manufactured by Actavis Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 20mgs of mixed amphetamine salts, which is a generic for Adderall. The FDA classifies this medication as a stimulant that is most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. It carries the risk of being habit forming and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, anorexia, insomnia and nervousness. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
107 Replies RSS
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...

My son is 22 is adhd and we can't find a docoor to give it to him ## Hello, Jayne! How are you? Adderall is a controlled substance that has addictive potential, so if you're contacting doctors and asking them to prescribe it, they are going view that as being drug seeking behavior and refuse. What he really needs to do is set up an appointment with a doctor to discuss his issues, get a proper diagnosis and see what they offer as his treatment options. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Jayne ,I don't know if you found a Dr to give it to your son yet but my Dr will write them but I DON'T want to put that info out here so if you still need a Dr, give me your email and I will email you the Drs info ## whats your email mine is for adderall ## Tony, what's your...

Are these suppose to have the beads inside them or is it powder form? Theyre orange 30mg capsuls with R-3061 on them. Took one and immediately fell asleep? ## There doesn't appear to be any photos of this pill online, however, I did come across posts from others stating that this particular capsule imprinted with "R 3061" does in fact have beads. I do find it odd how it put you sleep, considering that one of the side effects of this drug is insomnia. Did you take anything else with it? ## I really don't have any information for you on this, there is not listing of the capsules denoting how they are put together, I'm sorry. Learn more Adderall details here. Are these a different generic than what you had been taking? ## Hi Anon -- the strangest thing I have experience...

First time taking Adderall

Hello all, I was diagnosed with add back in 2005. My doctor at the time gave me a prescription for welbutrin(spellings probably wrong), which I don't recall it working. I never got it refilled and never went back to get something different. I started a new job last August and kept making mistakes left and right, so I went back to the doctor, a different one, to get something different. Well she put me back on the welbutrin for a month with no results. Today I went to the follow up appointment and told her I didn't feel much different, and it gave me some uncomfortable stomach pains, which sucked...she gave me a prescription for generic Adderall, 20mg once daily. I took it and felt great! But within the first 2 hours I was having moments of ups and downs and started crashing at a...

Has anyone used the Mallinckrodt. I have never even heard of it, and have taken the other generics with moderate success;. This brand is horrible. Very weak. Anyone experienced the same? ## Hello, Brian! How are you? Yes, several other people have complained about this one, though some have not had any problems with it. It really depends on the person. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, anorexia and insomnia. Can anyone else chime in that's taken this one? ## Generic Adderall made by Barr,Teva, Eon all seem to be great! No issues for over 4 years. Now for the 2nd time in the past 3 months I filled my script at Walmart. Instead of the orange oval pills, my bottle contained white, bitte...

Generic Adderall XR manufactured by Actavis is not the same formulation as was used by Shire/Teva. The efficacy of the drug does not exist in Actavis' version. I plan on filing a complaint with the manufacturer. I encourage others who are not receiving the expected results with Actavis' product to do the same. Be sure call your pharmacy and get the lot number of your capsules. Luckily, I am a chemist who has access to analytical equipment that will help me identify and quantitate this medication. I am unsure if it is indeed amphetamine salts and will not take my prescription. I want to know what I am putting in my body. Until this mystery is solved, I will paying for Brand. ## I'm afraid that you won't actually have a legitimate complaint against the manufacturer. There ...
