Adderall[note 1] is a psychostimulant 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 various salts of the two amphetamine stereoisomers and inactive ingredients; by salt content, the active ingredients are 75%dextroamphetamine salts (the dextrorotary or "right-handed" enanti...

I have a small round peach pill with a cresent moon and the number 28 on one side and scored on the other. Is this an actavis adderall? Please help. ## Hello, Tanya! How are you? Yes, this contains 30mgs of mixed Amphetamine salts, so it is a generic for Adderall.

Adderal 30mg Generic Which Is Better The Orange Oval Or The Pink Round
31 Replies RSS
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...

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
266 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 ...

adderall and dextroamphetamine tablets for add no need to verify
2 Replies RSS
can they be taken together ie adderall 20mg in am amd dextroamphetamine 20 in the pm for add ## Yes. But to keep from being overmedicated it would be best to talk to your dr. ## Just to clarify, Adderall already contains Dextroamphetamine within its composition of salts. So in terms of safety I don't see any reason why there would be complications with taking them both at separate times throughout the day/night since you would essentially be taking more of the same thing (and at the same 20mg dosage). The only differences I'm aware of might be found within the list of inactive ingredients (binders/fillers), which often vary from one manufacturer to another - and could potentially cause one tablet to work better or worse than the other, depending on how you respond to these chang...

I was diagnosed by two different physciatrists with severe ADD. I lose thing, I can't rememer dates, appointments, times, names. I am thinking maybe long acting Ritalin would help me more. I am 54 and it is like I am losing my job skills, I have had MRI's of the brain which are normal. I told the nurse if this is Alzhiemers, I am going to kill myself. Can anyone give me any feedback? ## I have the same exact thing you are talking about. It is not alzheimers. I am 56 and it is severe ADD. I also Have bipolar. I am also taking adderall 30 mg. I just started it. I just lost my job because they said I can't remember things. I have had several memory tests. ## Hi, I'm 64 years old and only started taking adderal 2 years ago. If I don't take it I could sleep 20 day and fee...

m amphet salts 20 mg vs adderall xr 20 mg
50 Replies RSS
Adderall xr 20 mg and M. Amphet Salts 20 mg. Are these the exact same medications? Are they both manufactured my Shire? Does Shire provide Teva/Barr with the generic version of Adderall xr under the name M. Amphet Salts 20mg? Thank you.... ## In order to tell you the manufacturer, you need to provide the markings or imprints on the capsules in question. I do, however, doubt this is the case, because TEVA manufacturer's their own generic medications. Both items that you described are the same medication, the only different you listed was one being controlled release, I do not know if the other one is controlled release or not, from what you provided. There are many companies that make generic medications. Can you please post back with the imprint? I will gladly check to see who makes...
