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.

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 ...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better
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...

Need Los Angeles Doc For Adderall Prescription
I am in Los Angeles on business and ran out of my Adderall XR 20mg. My doctor in DC sent me a script but no one will fill it due to a new CA law. I need a doctor in Los Angeles to write a new script so I can fill it. I am now out and need it as soon as possible. I have the current out of state script and the DC doctor to prove my history. Please help! ## What new law? I live in L.A.- can your doctor call it in? Or usually if u are a longstanding user, your pharmacy (if it has a location here where you are ex: CVS, WALGREENS) will give you the supplemental supply. Usually a 2-day supply. ## Nope you cant have it called in. Its a Level 2 Controlled Substance. They won't get confirmation from my doctor. It apparently has to come from a California doctor. Trust me, I went to 4 different...

doctor that prescribe adderall in lima ohio
I need to find a Doctor in Lima Ohio because I cant keep driving back home to get it from my Doctor in Michigan I spending too much on gas ## Hello, Dale! How are you? Yes, I understand, gas has gotten very expensive. Due to the regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. A regular PCP won't be able to prescribe it for you. The best thing to do would most likely be to set yourself up with a new PCP in your current location, make sure they get a full copy of your current medical records, then have them refer you to someone. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and insomnia. Can anyone rec...

aurobindo pharma adderall
i am starting to get really scared. If these made it past quality control, past the FDA, what about the medicines my parents take? What about my birth control (also generic)? These things are going into my body, every day -- in addition to not working, what if they harm me worse than just bad migraines and dizziness? It is obviously a fake, and I bet none of us will be reimbursed. I am furious! ## Hello, Boop! How are you? I think there are some details you aren't aware. A tablet that doesn't work as well for you as a prior one may very well have passed quality control and not had any problem being approved, because generic medications are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20% of the active ingredient. In most cases the difference is insignificant...

provigal, nuvigal, adderall
I have had MS for 13 years. I'm 51 years old. I've been through menopause. I need something to give me energy. ## Hello, Edie! How are you? I am very sorry about your health issues. This website does not manufacture nor prescribe any medications. It is an information only resource. Additionally, such medications aren't generally used just to give someone energy, because they run the risk of being habit forming and may cause some possibly dangerous side effects, if used improperly, such as heart attack, stroke, anorexia and elevated blood pressure. What medications do you currently take? What have you tried to boost your energy levels? Do you eat healthy and get lots of exercise?

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...

ucb 581 vs adderall
Hello there, well i currently take adderall and ucb 581(retalin) mostly to study and play music, but i would like to know which one is better to take and to be more concentrated and active. any answer is welcome,but a professional and medical one will be more appreciate it, thanks. ## Hi, Jack! If you check out the medication details, the professional medical one actually says that there is no way to know, since it can vary from person to person. Studies can show the percentage of people it was effective for, but that's as far as they can go. Even your doctor can only go with the majority, when prescribing something and tell you to try it for awhile and see. That's actually why there are almost always several different medications available in any treatment category. What works ...

what are the different mg Adderall IR
I was told that a small round light blue pill with 8OON on one side and a score in the middle on the other is a 20mg IR Adderall ## Hello, Stephanie! How are you? Actually the marking on this tablet is intended to be N008 and it contains 20mgs of Propranolol, which is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

aurobindo adderall
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...
