Lannett pharmaceuticals vs teva brand adderall

Today I picked up my 20mg x 2 daily adderall IR Instead of my usual adderall made by teva brand i was given a new type that I have never had before..it's supposedly a newer generic version from Lannett pharmaceuticals. It looks just like teva accept it's a lighter shade of peach color and it doesn't have that sweet flavor. It's more chalky like..its early evening and I decided to try one two hours have gone by and still nothing. Humm my question is has anyone else had the opportunity to try these newer version of adderall 20mg from Lannett pharmaceuticals?. I will come back in a hour or so and give an update..oh i read a different blogpost and have read that some actually liked it better than teva brand but wished for the sweet taste but they claimed to like it so let...

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 capsule with salt-like substance inside

My son takes Adderall. The last time it had beads inside of the capsule, but this time it looks like salt and I'm afraid someone tampered with them? ## Were they obtained from a licensed U.S. pharmacy? If so, then there should be nothing to worry about. Their formulation may depend on the manufacturer. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, nervousness, and anorexia. What are the markings on them? This information would enable me to double check for you. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! ## Hello. We have the same issue. Did anyone ever get back to you or explain why? Thanks so much ## Hi. I have a few 20 mg adderall capsules that say "m amp her salts...

k 66 pink round pill

Is this Dextroamphetamine? It doesn't seem to work like the one I was on before. I have taken this medication for years. I don't know if it's just the manufacturer? ## Yes, this tablet is manufactured by KVK Tech and they list it as containing 10mgs of Dextroamphetamine. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nervousness, nausea, insomnia, headache, and anorexia. If you've been taking it for a long time, your body may have built up a tolerance to it, which means you may need to have your dosage adjusted, or you might need to try a different medication. How many years have you been taking it? ## I've taken dexedrine or dextroamphetamine sulfate for a long time. It's quite an effective drug, in...

Adderall on backorder

I take generic Adderall 20 mg for narcolepsy and there is not one local pharmacy that has it in stock. I have never had this problem before. The pharmacies are saying that it's on backorder from the manufacturer. Is anyone else having problems getting their scripts filled? ## I live in Southern NH. I can't find a pharmacy anywhere around here that can get Adderall in any dose from Teva and Barr Pharmaceuticals. My psychiatrist was apparently completely unaware of this situation when he wrote the prescription earlier today, 10/18/2011. I run out in 4 days but am on a very low dose (5mg twice a day) so I may be able to wean off of it safely by cutting back to 5mg once a day, then nothing. I wonder how many people taking higher doses are goint to have major problems with withdrawal...

Generic Adderall 20 Mg Round Tablet

who makes the generic adderall 20 mg round orange tablet - I need to find out who actually is the manufacturer so I can get my pharmacy to order this brand. ## The only round, orange 20mg generic that I'm finding right now has an E over 401 on one side and a crosshatch score on the other and is manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals. If your pharmacy has provided you with it before, then they should have record of it in their files, thus they'd be able to check and make sure that it's the correct one. You can learn more Adderall details here. Are there any comments or questions? ## Thank you so much for the information. My previous pharmacy refused to give me the details when I told them I was going to go to a competitor because they were charging over double for generic add...

Zydus Adderall

One of the worst generics I had at Kroger’s was Zydus. Switched to Walgreens and they have Teva. Kroger is cheap for everything else though. Xanax bars for 120 are like 12 bucks. Effexor is like 5 bucks. Cialis for 90 is only like 25 and it’s over 100 at Walgreens. So I get everything but my Adderall at kroger.

METHYLPHENID E 30MG CAP GRAN

Is this the generic for Ritalin LA 30 mg? This is what the pharmacy filled, but I thought it should be Methylphenidate LA 30 ## It is the same medication, the LA, and the E both stand for the same thing, which denotes it as being a long acting, or delayed release medication. You might see other abbreviations, as well, including XR, ER, CR, SR, but they all mean the same thing. Personally, I think it would be better if they had one standard abbreviation to designate a medication as being time released, but at this time, they do not. The FDA warns that Methylphenidate carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, nervousness, and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with?

aurolife adderall

I got my prescription filled today for Adderall 15 mg and Aurolife was the generic they used because they were out of their normal one. I have taken Adderall for years & even gone down in dosage with no problems but today after of 2 hours of waiting for the pill to work I took another. I can't tell I've taken anything. I've called the pharmacy twice about this plus a separate matter(a mistake they made in submitting to insurance) and questioned the pharmacist about this drug. He gave me the excuse that if I was used to a different brand this may not work as well at first. I don't buy it. This is an amphetamine and it should work if it's a quality medication. I have asked them to put in my chart to NEVER despense this brand for me again. I will go elsewhere to get...

30mg Adderall Generic in Atlanta area?

Hello, Currently, as of March 21, 2016, I have been unable to get my 30mg Adderall generic filled after visiting over a dozen pharmacies in the Atlanta, GA area. This has *never* happened to me before. Anyone in the city or very close suburbs know of a place that has 30mg's? I know there are multiple manufacturers, and I haven't been able to find anything that suggests that it's suddenly become impossible to find 30mg *anywhere*. ## Have you tried Sam's Club? I'm on the North West of Atlanta, about 20 OTP. Filled my on March 7 though, so maybe I should check into this. Good Luck ## I live in michigan and can't find a pharmacy that has my 30mg either, They are stating they are on back order. I have been out for over a week. ## I live in Southern California and had...
