ADD / ADHD Overview

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder of the neurodevelopmental type.[11][12] It is characterized by difficulty paying attention, excessive activity, and acting without regards to consequences, which are otherwise not appropriate for a person's age.[1][2] Some individuals with ADHD also display difficulty regulating emotions or problems with executive function.[13][14]...

Current Adderall generic manufacturers

I'm searching for a current list of generic Adderall manufacturers (2020). ## Hmmm, aside from calling pharmacies and finding out which brands they stock, it might be possible to stitch together some information based on a couple of different sources to get a rough idea of which companies currently manufacture generic Adderall. For example, if you search this site's NDC database for Amphetamine (one of the ingredients), it gives you a lot of results. Next to each result is a date, so if you go through the pages and look for the more current dates then that could give you an idea. Also, DailyMed has a similar list but I don't see dates unless you click on each record. Lastly you can also check on the FDA Recalls page periodically to see if any brands have specifically withdra...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better

Is the round pink 30 mg Adderall generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg Adderall generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/potent Adderall 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 e...

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 ...

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...

adderall ir is not working as well as adderall xr

I recently switched from adderall xr 30mg to adderall ir 20mg because of the price of the medication. Now im in space and unproductive, moody and sleepy. WHY??? ## The XR was a controlled release medication, the drug is released slowly over hours of time to keep a steady dose in your body. The IR is instant release, so all the medication is released at once and also processed out of your body much faster. Did you doctor approve this switch? ## are you taking the generic form of adderall IR ?.. because even though your doctor and pharmacist says its the same as brand.. trust me its not. i was prescribed strattera when i was first diagnosed with ADD/Depression and it pretty much seemed to magnify the problems i already had.. sleepy.. forgetful/foggy mind.. headaches.. moody .. so i was sw...

Adderall Generics Thread

Hey guys. Most of us are probably in the same boat--our Adderall doesn't work and it's horrible and we can't function well and it's bull**** and we all know that, but there are other threads/forums to vent frustration. We need a thread with the basics to help us all get going again or to know what to avoid (even though that seems like all of them these days, ha.) PLEASE POST THE FOLLOWING: 1. MANUFACTURER OF YOUR RECENT ADDERALL PRESCRIPTION 2. XR OR IR? HOW MANY MG? COLOR/SHAPE/IMPRINT? (if possible) 3. ***PHARMACY NAME*** AND MONTH/YEAR OF SCRIPT 4. YOUR LOCATION (if you are comfortable with that) 5. SIDE EFFECTS/SYMPTOMS. GOOD? BAD? Generally speaking, chain pharmacies use the same manufacturer at all of their locations throughout the country and that will make it eas...

Desoxyn 15mg Gradumet

Amphetamine ## This Medication was prescribied to me for narcolepsy. My quality of life has dropped tremendously.I lost 50% of my functions. I have not been awake since this drug was discontinued. I would love to be able to have this medication and get my life back. ## Why someone would discontinue a drug that has such a great effect on narcolepsy patients? Many people have overdosed on many dangerous drugs, desoxyn being a methamphetamine the fatality % is 0. Having knowledge of this being a former D.E.A. agent for many years. I among many others consider this a great cure. ## I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF DESOXYN EXISTS IN 5MG AND IN 15MG DOSES? ## Well, first of all, the fatality rate for Methamphetamines is NOT 0%! Many people have died from reactions to them or from abusing them, so you ...

Can't find brand name Dexedrine Spansules and Zenzedi

I usually use CVS, but the pharmacist told me that their wholesaler does not carry Zenzedi. Those who take this medication, what pharmacy do you use? The only mom and pop pharm in my town said it was too expensive to order, but that chains that use a certain wholesaler different than the one CVS uses would be able to get it. I am not asking about (the vastly inferior, IME) various generics of dextroamphetamine IR. Been there, hated it. Zenzedi 15 mgs works for my ADHD-C and narcolepsy the way brand-name Adderall IR used to when it was manufactured by Shire, before it was taken off patent and the original formula changed. I am having similar trouble finding brand name Dexedrine Spansules (manufactured by Amedra and Amneal). I do not find the generic by Actavis/Teva supplied by all the ph...

Trouble finding a new doctor to refill my Vyvanse

My current doctor is unfortunately in the hospital very ill which forced me to find a new doctor to refill my Vyvanse and let me tell ya...... it's been extremely difficult and still have had no luck. Let me just tell y'all what one Doctor told me when I informed her I needed my Vyvanse filled..... She informed me instead, that this is a touchy subject for her on a personal level, as her son is addicted to Crystal Meth and compared Vyvanse to Crystal Meth. When I asked her if she is comparing Vyvanse to Crystal Meth and she replied.....Yes! Now, isn't that unethical?? ## The unethical part is refusing you treatment based on her personal bias. Comparing that medication to methamphetamine is uneducated. Maybe she needs some continuing education classes? The licensing board sho...
