Pick up Adderall refill early

I received my 1st prescription of Adderall just last week and I've lost them! I had a doctor's appointment today and he wrote me another script that I'm assuming is for next month. I didn't dare to tell doctor that I lost my meds. I live in Maine. Can I fill this new script at a different pharmacy without using my insurance this time? ## Hello IRD, I'll be transparent in telling you that it's in your best interest to come clean and tell your doctor what happened. If they discover that you are trying to get your next script filled already it could potentially cause you problems down the line as they might believe that since you didn't tell them anything and now you're trying to get another script filled it starts to look like you're trying to misuse th...

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half

Some of my capsules are filled all the way some are filled just a little and some are just half of the way which is the proper amount? ## Hi Kim, From what you've stated, it seems like they've been tampered with. I would probably call a local pharmacy and find out if these irregularities are normal. Something just doesn't sound right about each capsule containing what appears to be different doses; let alone the thought of being shorted on the full amount. Did you get this filled at a licensed pharmacy or come about it through some other means? I'm just curious because that would probably help determine their legitimacy. Thanks for any additional info you might have. ## I just got 30 day supply of 50 mg vyvanse & over half of my pills were half filled. This really ma...

I've been getting the orange football shaped ones, barr, before this fill. So far I haven't had any issues but we will see. ## Hello Melissa, According to the NIH these two pills do contain the same active ingredients but have no similarities between the inactive ingredients. I will list the ingredients below but just to clarify ...

medix pill red and white capsule

Can anyone tell me what this white and red capsule with powder on the inside is? Only says medix on both sides. ## Hello Lee, From what I was able to find the pill you have is a amphetamine clobenzorex and reportedly this medication is supposed to suppress appetite and help lose weight. . I was able to find that this medication has been banned in the United States and I was unable to find any information about this from the FDA or NIH. Since this medication is illegal in the U.S I suggest you dispose of the pill at your local drug drop off which will be located at either your local pharmacy or hospital I hope this information helps.

Which pharmacies in Georgia carry Sandoz generic Adderall?

After having a bad reaction to the Aurobindo generic, I am determined to find the one generic brand that I know to work consistently for me. Does anyone know where I can find the Sandoz generic in Georgia? Every pharmacy I've checked carried either Aurobindo or Teva, both which have given me pronounced side effects. ## My Costco in Florida sometimes carries Sandoz, but it's a hit or miss. I was told they just go with whichever brand is cheapest to them at the time. ## That is correct, that's how most pharmacies work, they place an order with their distributor, and it is filled with whichever one is available at the cheapest price. They don't generally get to pick which manufacturer's product they will receive. However, if you ask, you might find a pharmacy that will ...

Aurobindo Adderall/Dexedrine and short fuse

I am taking a generic Aurobindo Dexedrine IR tablet (5mg x2). I am experiencing extreme rage and losing my temper easily. The same issue happened with Aurobindo Adderall IR. Can anyone tell me if this is normal? ## According to NIH, the following symptoms are listed as possible side effects of Adderall/Dexedrine/Dextroamphetamine: - Extreme energy or restlessness, confusion, agitation, unusual moods or behaviors - Anxiety, restlessness, fast heartbeat, fever, sweating, muscle spasms, twitching - Agitation - Irritability - Violent actions Source: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMHT0009889/?report=details#side_effects Have you tried any other manufacturer's of Adderall or Dexedrine with different results? If so, it could also be attributed to different sets of binders & fillers tha...

TEVA 30mg vs AUROBINDO PHARM Amphetamine Salts (Adderall)

For several years I've taken TEVA 30mg Amphetamine Salts 2x daily with consistent positive relief. Focus and a feeling that I could have a productive day gave me a reason to get out of bed. On 8/21/2014 all that changed to nervous anxiety filled days staying home. What caused the dramatic change quickly became clear. The generic Adderall produced by AUROBINO PHARM which my regular CVS Pharmacy filled my RX with on 8/21 was less than effective it was exasperating the very symptoms for which it was prescribed. FDA is an ineffective bureaucracy controlled by lobbyists for foreign and domestic pharmaceutical companies making huge profits in generic drugs at the expense of the health and quality of life of others. The manufacturing of inferior or possibly harmful medications by greedy co...

Adderall manufactured by Teva not working

I have had two refills of Adderall 20 mg that was manufactured by Teva/barr (Teva) and it seems to have much less medication in each pill. Refills by another manufacturer work. This is ridiculous, and where do we report Teva and who can check each pill for amount for medication? I would gladly donate some of my worthless ones to the FDA? ## You'd have to report any complaints to the FDA, at 888-INFO-FDA. However, there may not actually be anything to report. They do allow generic medications to differ from the name brands, in the amount of the active ingredient, by up to plus or minus 20%. This is considered an acceptable therapeutic window. For most people, these differences don't cause any problems, but if someone is sensitive to medications, it means that one with a slightly ...

Sandoz Adderall

Sandoz is the best generic ir adderall I've used. August 11, 2017 I was told by the pharmacist they no longer produce this product. I asked if brand name was available and was told yes. When I received them I noticed they were made by Teva and let me tell you they are awful. I don't know what to do if I can't find a decent generic brand. ## Activis (spell check?) is pretty good. I also went from Sandoz to Teva, not by choice, and hated it. Then I tried Activis, and I'm happy with it. ## That's strange if it is discontinued but CVS just gave me Sandoz Adderall today 9/5/2017 , I had requested corepharma because previously they gave me Mylan brand, which was Bad. I did well on corepharma but the only generic they could get was Sandoz. ## It is possible that just that p...

Sandoz Methylphenidate Availability

Can anyone tell me if they have completely stopped making Methylphenidate 20 mg? Just the regular tablet. Not the extended release / yellow round tablet with sz imprinted on them manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals... ## I was panicked to think that might be the case, but I just found it at a CVS (in Tucson). From my efforts to find it, this is what I have learned… each CVS may give you a different answer, from "we have no control, we only receive what is sent to us" & "I have no way of finding out anything for you"... to "sure, I can order that for you". Bottom line, to find Sandoz methylphenidate don't give up after calling one or two CVSs! ## Hello Just curious, According to the FDA there is no stoppage or shortage of these pills only the exte...
