MY SON STARTED TAKING THIS MEDICATION A WEEK AGO AN STARTED HAVING STRANGE SIDE EFFECTS A TWITCH WHEN HE GOES TO TALK / EXPRESS HIM SELF ,AN DONT KNO WHAT TO DO. ## Anytime you are concerned about unusual side effects, you should contact a doctor or pharmacist immediately. They could be the sign of a serious reaction. even if they they aren't, he may have been put on too high of a dosage or this may not be the correct medication for him to use. That said, the twitching can be a normal side effect to this medication, since it is a stimulant. He may also experience nausea, insomnia and weight loss. It should taper off, after a few weeks, as his body adjusts to the medication, however, if it doesn't or if it gets worse, you should contact his doctor immediately. Read more on the me... ...

My daughter started taking this medication in Feb. and became very anger and out of control, could this be cause from this medciation ## Mixed Amphetamine Salts are a stimulant medication used to treat conditions such as ADHD and Narcolepsy. And yes, there is a possibility that the medication could be causing her problem, since it is a stimulant, it can cause irritability and anger in some people. Have you contacted her doctor, yet?

Amphetamine Salts Er 40mg
My 9 year ols nephew is on 40 mg a day this seems too much! He seems distant and depressed all the time, should I be concerned? ## Hi Kerry, From what I could gather, the usual pediatric dose can range from 5mg up to a maximum of 60mg once daily. The extended release capsules are not recommended for anyone age 6 or under, so I can only speculate that his body (from a biological standpoint) may not even be ready to handle this medication. Safety guidelines for this medication note that if any bothersome adverse reactions appear (e.g., insomnia, anorexia, or depression in this case), the dosage should be reduced. I think it's perfectly ok and natural to be concerned for someone who looks depressed and distant. This would probably be attributed to side effects and/or too high of a dose... ...

Is this safe for a 6 yr. old to take. Once a day> ## Dosing and administration guidelines for this medication state the following: Adderall XR (Amphetamine, Dextroamphetamine Mixed Salts) is approved for use in children "over" the age of six years, although regular Adderall can be used in younger children from 3-5 years of age.

Amphetamine Salts Er 20 mg plz help
I was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age, but never really took any sort of medication. As the years past, and I progressed into adulthood signs of my ADHD presented themselves more clearly which effected my personal relationships and overall work output/performance. I decided that the adult thing to do would be to research and talk w/ my doctor about possible steps. My doctor suggested, along with a confirmation by a psychologist, that I start taking Adderall XR. So I was given 20 mg of the generic form (Amphetamine Salts ER). My first day was last Wednesday, and it worked wonderfully. I was motivated, alert, focused, which led to a better overall mood. It was everything I had hoped for. The next day I took it again, but with less of an effect. I chalked this up to my body getting used... ...

D Amphetamine Salt Combo Time span
I take 30 mg ER twice a day and it seems to wear off latter on before the evening time. Does anyone have this issue if so what do you or your doctors do to fix this. ## From what I could gather, many people are saying that the D-Amphetamine Salt Combo seems to only last about 4 hours before it's initial effects start to fade. However they may or may not be referring to the extended release version. Others have also stated that the generic doesn't necessarily work as well or as long as the name brand. I wouldn't doubt this to be true, as I know generic medications are allowed to contain up to 20% more or less of the actual active ingredients. This factor, along with different inactive ingredients (binders/fillers) could enable you to have a completely different reaction to ea... ...

discount for d amphetamine salt combo 30
Are you aware of any discount programs or assistance for free d-amp..? I just ran out of my prescription, and I am unable to refill it due to the high cost. ## HI, Eric! How are you? Sorry about the problem you're having. But no, this is a generic medication, so it is cheaper by its very nature, thus there is no assistance program for it. Additionally, the name brand, Adderall, also has no coupon or prescription program available at this time, since there is a generic available now. Learn more Adderall details here. The best suggestion I can make is to ask at your pharmacy and see if they honor any discount programs, there are many available from various sources that are usually free and can save you anywhere from 10 to 75% on some prescriptions. ...

I take 2 30mg of Amphetamine Salts ER a day and I am tired
I have been on adderall XR for several years now and it has always worked great. Recently my pharmacy switch me to the generic form, Amphetamine Salts ER 30mg Cap. I am tired all the time now and I all I ever want to do is sleep. Is this normal? Is there a difference between Adderall and the generic form? ## The proper generic for Adderall is mixed Amphetamine Salts, so you may want to double check your prescription. Your body can also get used to the same medication and dosage if you have been on it for a long period of time and it may no longer work as well. This may require a medication switch or dosage adjustment. And yes, there can also be differences between the name brands and generics. The generic is actually allowed to fluctuate in the active ingredient by as much as plus or mi... ...

Amphetamine er works great for my two sons with ADHD
We just lost our health insurance and can no longer afford the meds. Do you know who makes it? I am not sure what to do. This has been a life saver for a 13 and 8year old. $170 for 3 months, I am out of work!!! ## Were you referring to the mixed Aphetamine salts that are a generic for Adderall? If so, I'm sorry, but the only assistance programs available would be for the name brand and Shire Pharmaceuticals no longer offers a program for it. Have you tried checking with any of the local, large chain pharmacies to see if they offer a discount program on this medication? ...

m amphet salt capsule white powder
Is there white powder in 20mg orange capsules n does it taste sweet or numbing ## Hi Cidd, Based on my research, there is an orange capsule imprinted with "M. Amphet Salts 20 mg", that is identified as Amphetamine + Dextroamphetamine ER (20 mg). NOTE: This particular pill is Manufactured by Global Pharmaceuticals However I'm not one to know what it might taste like or look like on the inside, so hopefully this verification is enough in and of itself. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Amphetamine-Dextroamphetamine Details I hope this helps! ...

Concerta Er
I've been taking Amphetamine Salts 30mg for about 2 years, this had been great for the depression but it sur- pressed my appetite and effected my taste buds so drastically, I had no interest in food whatsoever. Then my physician suggested concerta ER, but that didn't seem to do much for my depression. ## Well neither of them are actual antidepressants, they are actually stimulant medications that are normally used to treat conditions such as ADHD and narcolepsy. Learn more Amphetamine Salts details here. Learn more Concerta details here. So, it's normal for them to cause appetite suppression, but they don't usually help much with depression, because they can cause irritability, so that will actually backfire in some people. Have you tried any actual antidepressants? ...

focalin and adderal
Is adderal and focalin made out of the same ingredients ## No, they are not. Adderall contains mixed Amphetamine salts. Learn more Adderall details here. And Focalin contains Dexmethylphenidate. Learn more Focalin details here. They are commonly used to treat many of the same conditions, but the active ingredients are different. Have you been switched from one to the other? ## My son is being treated for ADD as was his older brother many years ago. Like his brother, it was trial and error to find a med that didn't produce unwanted emotional side effects. Adderal didn't work for either and now the doctor is suggesting Focalin. Doing my research it appears that Focalin may have more addictive/dependency side effects. True? ...

Should Dextroamp-amphet ER 25 mg be taken along with Amphetamine Salts 5 mg tablet? ## Not unless a doctor has specifically instructed one to do so, for some reason. It is doubling up on the same thing and these are stimulants, so too much can cause some serious side effects, such as elevated blood pressure and elevated heart rate. Where they prescribed this way? ...

Hello All, I am not glad that you are having issues, but if am so glad that you post, because I am having the same issue with my 14 year old son. He was taking the blue and white 15 mg Amphetamine salts ER for Narcolepsy with Cataplexy. This is his very first time on the medication, IT WORKED! Well after the first 30 day prescription, good old CVS decided to take it upon themselves and change it to the orange pill, same miller grams, but the name on the bottle is Dextroamp-amphetamine ER. This dose not work at all. My son is constantly falling asleep, and the Cataplexy has complete control over him, causing him to fall at least four to five times a day. Can anyone please tell me what is the difference between the two medications, and any suggestions on how I can fix it. ## Your son shou... ...

Generic Adderall XR 30 mg Appearance Discrepencies
I live with a questionable character who I have caught red handed taking my meds from me. I am prescribed amphetamine salts 30 mg xr, generic for adderall. They are orange and clear capsules filled with orange beads. The time I caught him I found that he had taken the pill apart and ingested the beads, then put the pill back together so I wouldn't know...really sneaky. I am worried that he has been stealing from me again. I got a lock box and have really been trying to monitor and count my meds and I noticed one was missing, which was really suspicious. I think he also has been pulling the pills apart and putting them back together again...I am noticing that there is some irregularity in the pill appearances; namely amount of beads inside (though I have heard there is a margin of er... ...

black and red capsules no logo
These are red and black capsules. But there is no logo on the capsule at all. The bottle they were in says amphetamine salts ER 5mg cap. I look them up online, but it don't have one pic that resembles these. Can that be what they are? ## No, they are most likely just some type of over the counter product. There is a 5mg dosage of Amphetamine salts available in the U.S., so there would be no need to have them done by a compounder, which is the only way one would get them in unmarked capsules here. Does anyone recognize these? I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. ## Ok thanks! ...
