Adderall[note 1] is a psychostimulant drug of the phenethylamine class used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts
282 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 ...

Generic Adderall Coupon
19 Replies RSS
Looking for a XR 30mg generic coupon ## Coupons are not available for generic medications, by the very nature of their being generic, they are usually cheaper than the name brand, even without coupons. Even for the name brand Adderall XR, there are no current coupons and the manufacturer has also discontinued their assistance program for it. Have you tried just shopping around to check prices at different pharmacies in your area? ## That response is 100% wrong. I have been on adderall for 9 years now and when i lost my insurance, i switched to generic about 5 years ago, and I have an internet coupon that I printed off and use as insurance and it knocks down the originally 80 something dollars to like 30 something depending on where I fill it. ## Can you post the link where you got the c...

is adderall speed?
57 Replies RSS
Why are so many responders referring to Adderall as Speed? From my understanding, speed is a methamphetamine? Just wondering because I am considering Adderall as a possible alternative to Ritalin but don't want to take Speed! ## Adderall contains Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine, both of which are stimulants, just different from the ones in Ritalin. It is not specifically Adderall that is considered Speed by abusers, but any stimulant drug, including Ritalin. ## Having been diagnosed with adult add in '81, I can tell you ALL C-11 Stimulants are called speed on the streets. The way it was explained to me is that methamphetamine lasts longer and is the strongest of all the amphetamines. I have also read that a person that has used any of these drugs for an extended period of time...

The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, irritability, nervousness, weight loss and anorexia. ## No sir Iam not a Doctor but I have taken Adderall for 8 years ,and the only thing you might have a problem with until you get use to this med is Insomnia,and Nervousness,,and make sure you eat on a regular Basis like always,and dri...

I've been unable to obtain my script anywhere since mid to late 2014! I've tried the other generics (the pink ones and also a lighter orange colored one for 20mg pills) and I get massive headaches from them so I refuse to take them after numerous attempts. But damnitt, I'm tired of not being able to get anything accomlished anymore!! I hate feeling like my head is all foggy and unable to accomplish anything it seems!! I've tried by sense and they are worthless to me as well!!! I've contacted Teva directly and they still produce what I'm looking for but why can't any of the pharmacies get what I need anymore???? And I look on the Internet and nothing recent seems to have any articles written on this!!! Is our gov't hiding this recent shortage from leaking ...

2 Replies RSS
Hi, ive taken Adderall for a few years and also opiates for several years with xanax. Recently ive had sulphur burps awful smelling burps which lead to bubble guts lil stomach growling eventually vomiting and runs. I noticed maybe Adderall is triggering this somehow along w taking oxycodone 30 mg. Ive researched and noticed several others w exactly same symptoms with no diagnosis after going thru many obvious possibilities w no positive answer or solutions. I'm not Li ive cut my diet but need meds wondering if anyone had similar reactions while on these meds? Alka seltzer is only temp relief ive found after puking. ## Did your brand change? ## @Erik, Stomach pain and vomiting are both listed as general side effects of Adderall as well as Oxycodone on the webpage for the U.S. Nationa...

Adderall xr 30mg with only white beads
2 Replies RSS
I have blue capsules that say adderall xr 30 mg on them but they have only white beads. Is this generic or brand? And how are these different from the orange 30 mg adderall xr with the white and orange beads? ## @Ricky, When you switch between different manufacturers, the only noticeable thing I'm aware of that actually changes are the inactive ingredients (binders/fillers), so that could be one reason why the beads are different colors - different dyes? As to whether or not it's a generic or brand that you have, my research shows that the orange 30mg pill marked with "Adderall XR" is indeed a brand name and not generic. The blue capsule on the other hand is also reported to be brand name Adderall XR... however, I'm seeing conflicting information from Shire Pharmaceu...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
81 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...
