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)...

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...

adderal peach moon
I am prescribed adderall 30mg and have been prescribed this medication for over 6 years now for ADHD. This is the first time I got this kind of pill which threw off and I went back in to the pharmacy and asked if they have given me the wrong medication and they said no that it's a generic brand. Actavis is the maker. I searched the Web and found a pic it took me a long time but I did find one. You have to type peach 30mg adderall and search the images and it's there. I hope this helps!!!!!! ## Hi cozy, How are you? Thanks for sharing the info on that peach adderall tablet. I don't see how the pharmacist would've made such a big mistake on the prescription, but I hear those kinds of things actually do happen on rare occasions, so I think it's good that you took a mome...

walgreens Adderall
I am hearing that Walgreens is putting a 24-48 hour hold on My ADHD Medication, Adderall. If I could afford Vyvanse I would prefer to be prescribed them but I can't. I have been getting the generic Adderall for over two years now and I was prescribed them 20 years ago in High School. I am curious to know if it is true and why? If my date on my script is the day of fill why would I have to wait until one or two days without them? ## Hello, Ryan! How are you? Have you actually been told this by someone in the Walgreen's pharmacy or is it just a rumor you've heard? I haven't heard anything about this and see no reason for them to do so, unless they have to order the medication in, or contact the doctor to ensure that it's valid. Does anyone else know anything about this?

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 ...

pink adderall
I recently got the pink round 30 mg tablets and I find they make me tense up a lot more... sore muscles, shaky, hard to get motivated because I'm so distracted from the negative side effects... The only way I like this brand is if I take a Benzo with them to counteract. ## Hi, I think because there is a shortage right now, they are giving out corr brand vs teva(the orange ovals). The only thing I DO like about the pink ones is that they work super fast, like in 10-15 min, where the orange ones take around 45-1 hr. But yes the pink ones are a bit ruff. ## From what I could gather, it looks like the only differences between these two medications are found within the list of inactive ingredients. I went ahead and posted the list for each tablet so you can see for yourself what changes ...

adderall orange capsule
Need to know the bead color of the 3061 capsule ## @jake, I'm not sure about "R 3061", but "R 3060" contains WHITE beads and is the 20mg extended release version from the same manufacturer (Actavis)... So odds are that the 30mg 3061 capsule may have the same color beads as the dosage below it. The only differentiating factors I'm aware of are the imprints and the capsule color itself. However I've also heard about Adderall capsules containing peach colored beads as well as combinations of orange and white together. If you have one why don't you open it up and check? Are you getting them off the street or something to have reason to worry about what color they are?

round orange pill with 28 and crescent moon
I just filled a prescription of 90 Adderall 30mg and those are the pills I got. ive been taking Adderall for six years and never saw them before. I even went back into the pharmacy to make sure there was no mistake, lol. it seems they are a new brand. ## Hello, Francis! How are you? Yes, that is correct, these are manufactured by Actavis, that is a logo that they use. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, insomnia and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Francis, Ditto for me, just yesterday, but they don't seem to be working. ? Are the ones you're taking working for you? Keith ## Hey there....I was wondering if the small orange with 28 on them .....did they eve...

is it against the law to insufflate your own prescription
can you get fired from your job for insufflating adderall and i'm prescribed this medication ## Hi Monkey, How's it going? Concerning your question about intranasal use potentially getting you fired, I don't think anyone else from your work place is going to be suspicious about whether or not you're taking your medication inappropriately, unless of course they know that you're on it and you give them reason to believe that it's affecting the quality of your work. That said, nothing I'm seeing states that intranasal use is quote on quote "against the law", but none-the-less, that type of behavior isn't tolerated in any work place I'm aware of. Is this something you do at your desk in between breaks? Lol How else would they know? ## my boss call...
