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)...

doctor that prescribe adderall,abilify and ambien?
i have adhd,bypolar and manic depressant and have mood swings ## Hello, Katie! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, you'll need to see a specialist, at least for the Adderall, since it is a controlled substance. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, nervousness, insomnia and anorexia. What is your general location? That information would make it easier for someone to recommend a good doctor in you area.

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...

It's Sandoz 30mg I don't feel the effect as I would on the Corepharma ## Hi Isa, How are you doing? One of the possible reasons why you may not be getting the same amount of relief with Sandoz as you might with Corepharma, is often due to the fact that each manufacturing company uses a different set of binders/fillers (inactive ingredients). This is basically the extra fluff that holds the tablet together. Some companies use more of it than others, and some even go so far as using cheaper genetically modified substances that our body's can't metabolize (yet it's what's covering up the actual active substance, blocking it being released in it's normal therapeutic quantity/bioavailability). This is what I believe is occurring in patients who report having simil...

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 adderall generic 10mg not as effective as normal adderall generic 10mg Please help with advice
I always go to the same pharmacy to get my prescriptions filled, but this time, I was on my way to school so I stopped at a different pharmacy and got my adderall filled there. My usual pills are generic 10mg, as are these new ones. My normal pill bottle reads: Amphetamine Salts 10mg, gen for Adderall 10mg tablet. take one tablet twice a day. These are made by Caraco Pharmaceuticals, I believe (well that's what the bottle says, so I'm assuming that's what it means). They are a turquoise-ish color, and round. The new bottle of generic pills that I just received has the same information except it says they are made by Corepharma Jtk. They are vivid blue. These new pills do not seem as effective at all. I feel like I can barely concentrate. I don't know what to do. How do I...

Why is it bad to flush pills in toilet would it hurt our environment ## Hello, Ran! How are you? Environmental contamination. Waste water is purified and reused, but it's been found that prescriptions drugs tend not to be removed by current purification methods, so we end up with them still being in our tap water. The preferred current disposal method is to mix them with some undesirable substance, such as used coffee grounds or dirty kitty litter, place the mess into a sealed container, such as a coffee can and then dispose of it with your regular garbage. Is there anything else I can help with?

Corepharma Adderall Has Improved
When I first tried the Corepharma generic Adderall IR back in 2007, I felt it was very, very weak. Now..however...Feb 2013...the Corepharma seems (at least to me) to be better than it once was. Two specific items I have noticed seem better: 1. Potency 2. The come-down is more even Perhaps over the last 5+ years of getting complaints (I actually formally complained back in 2007,) the company has actually taken proactive steps to improve their product. This, of course, is simply my opinion. ## It's possible, but it's also possible that it's just due to your body being more used to the medication now and adjusting to it easier. It's always hard to say in such cases, because it's not like the manufacturer wants to publicly admit if there were problems before that they...

Gluten contamination Adderall 30mg Teva Gate Pharma
I am currently taking Adderall 30mg, name brand, manufactured by Gate which is a subsidiary of Teva. I've been taking it for 15 months. It is round, orange, numbers 3 0 on the front and a symbol that looks somewhat like a % on the back. I have Celiac disease, diagnosed a year ago and despite a strict gluten free diet I still have lingering symptoms. I ran out of Adderall 2 weeks ago and went 6 days without it while waiting for updated insurance approval. I finally was able to fill my prescription 1 week ago, last Thursday. After my 3rd dose I became very sick and assumed I consumed food containing gluten. But I've been unable to find the source of the attack, nothing I ate should have caused it. It's been one week and the attack has not subsided. The only thing I did or ate ...

Please help! Weird generic adderall filled at CVS today. 20mg tablet This is a HUGE concern for me as I just filled my prescription today (9/8/2014) at CVS and found your post after googling what the difference is as they look completely different as they often do with generics, but I've NEVER seen them look like this nor look so chalky. I haven't taken one yet so I do not know if it will have the same results as my previous ones which were all TEVA pharm also. Did you speak with CVS about your findings with this new pharm company? I would really appreciate knowing what they had to say if you don't mind. Thank you in advance. ## Desperate for some help on this HUGE problem. Thank you in advance for those who can offer some answers on my post above. ## Did you get yours at Co...
