do 50mg vyvanse taste like sugar

Do 50mg vyvanse taste like sugar? ## It's probably too late but anyways... they do/did make 70mg vyvance my brother was prescribed these back in late 2014 ## As for the taste I'm curious. I thought they tasted salty but I opened my bottle (it looked weird) and decided to taste them and it was like semi sweet flour, lol. ## Hello Sadie May, Most credible sources won't really specify the taste of a medication but looking around I have found users of various forums claiming that they do in fact have a rather sweet flavor. I cannot confirm or deny that this is true as I do not take them myself but that does tend to be the general consensus among people on the internet. Hope this helps. ## I dont think they have any taste at all in none of them..the highest dose is 70 mg..and the...

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 ...

Adderall Xr Generic r-3061

Are these suppose to have the beads inside them or is it powder form? Theyre orange 30mg capsuls with R-3061 on them. Took one and immediately fell asleep? ## There doesn't appear to be any photos of this pill online, however, I did come across posts from others stating that this particular capsule imprinted with "R 3061" does in fact have beads. I do find it odd how it put you sleep, considering that one of the side effects of this drug is insomnia. Did you take anything else with it? ## I really don't have any information for you on this, there is not listing of the capsules denoting how they are put together, I'm sorry. Learn more Adderall details here. Are these a different generic than what you had been taking? ## Hi Anon -- the strangest thing I have experience...

My experience on MyDayIs

Just finished my fist 30 day trial of MyDayIs and am not refilling! Within one week, I was planning my suicide. It was all I could think about most of the time I was on MyDayIs. I’ve never before had such strong suicidal thoughts. My recommendation to anyone considering trying this medication is to share your thoughts while on the medication with someone very close to you. They may just be the ones to save your life. ## Wow! I am so very sorry about what you experienced, that's terrible. How are you doing, now? Some medications do cause that as a side effect in some people that take them, according to NIH studies, which is why these issues are listed in so many black box warnings. Are you doing to try a different medication? ## Doing much better now, thanks for asking. I went ...

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...

difference between amphetamine salts and amphetamine salt combo

I HAVE BEEN TAKING GENERIC ADDERALL which has always been called amphetamine salts. My last script instead of saying amphetamine salts substituted for adderall it says amphetamine salts substituted for amphetamine salt combo? What's this mean? ## Hello, Mary! How are you? It all means the same thing, just different ways of stating it. Adderall actually contains Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine, which is usually listed as mixed Amphetamine salts, so what you've seen are just different variations of the drug name. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, headache. dizziness, insomnia, nervousness and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I don't have insurance and my doctor recently boosted my dose from...

Updated in Amphetamine

It is methylphenidate: 10 mg pill is a round, white pill scored twice (in a cross) so the pill can be split into four pieces. the other side is scored with the company logo. the pill is manufactured in mexico by Psicofarma. ## What is difference between Xanax and Ritalin based on pill image? They are identical? ## IMMEDIATE HELP REQUIRED, I have the EXACT same question, meds are from a popular part of Mexico from a drug store, packaging was sealed and in Correctly label boxes for the med desired. But unfortunately they are now mixed together do to convenience (but the pills were not examined before they were put together) are there ANY visual or other identifiers between Ritalin 10mg and Clonazepam 2mg? don't know which is what? PLEASE HELP, I don't want the wrong med to be take...

Generic Vs Brand Meds of Adderall.

Hello All: Eight years ago I had a gastric bypass losing from 294# to 117# (too low for a 61 yr. old female). Currently 145# & feel good from weight standpoint. I have had many adversities from the bypass with 4 subsequent small bowel resections. I cannot absorb generic meds. This leads me to excess costs on all of my meds. I was changed from brand Lexapro to escitalopram (generic) in June and by Sept., I was suicidal and required intensive treatment until I could get the brand Lexapro. My insurance (Medicare Advantage Plan) is a nightmare to cover any of the brand named meds even when my Psychiatrist states Brand medically necessary. Am also taking Wellbutin SR 450mg/day which is over the recommended max. dose. Dr. is wanting to change me from Wellbutrin SR to Adderall 30mg hoping ...

Adderall by Teva dp 20

I would like some input on Adderall 20 mg Instant Release. I have been through four manufacturers. I was on Activist and lots of people did not like it, however it worked for me. It had its fault but in the end it was recalled. Sometime during that period Teva bought out Activist. Since then I haven't been able to get an instant release to work without bad side effects. Then I was told there was a Name Brand being sold by Teva. I was able to get this with pill logo dp 20. I took only ten milligrams and my heart was racing out of control. I called the F D A and they advised me that the pill with imprint dp 20 was a generic. What I would like to know is how can it be Name Brand when through research shows after Shire discontinued AD 20 there was no other name brand. I have looked up N...
