ADD / ADHD Overview

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder of the neurodevelopmental type.[10][11] 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.[12][13][14] For a diagnosis...

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...

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...

Daytrana patch

My 8 yr old son has just been prescribed Daytrana Patch. We havent picked it up yet. He was on Focalin and it wasnt good. He was then just kept on intuiv. He almost got hit by the school bus today. so his neurologist prescribed him this patch. Im alittle worried of these new medicines out and just feel for 10 months he has been a guinney pig. I know this is alot of trial and error. Just very worried!!!! ## Intuiv is basicly Tenex, a blood pressure med. It's been on the market for many yrs. My daughter takes it for Tourette's Syndrome and hypertension. We've never had any problems with it and she has multi-disabilities. As for the other meds, not familiar with them but will try doing some research for you. Good luck with your son. ## Daytrana is a transdermal patch that conta...

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 ...

Remedy for Methamphetamine sores

Is there an over the counter remedy for methamphetamine sores? I have been sober going on two weeks after using for 5 months. I want the sores on my legs gone. I would pick where they couldn't be seen. Now I wanna wear dresses and shorts. Advice please. ## Hello! Kaykay! How are you doing? Kudos for becoming sober, that's very hard to do. As to the sores, are they scars, scabs, or still open sores? The proper solution depends on the state they are in. For instance, according to the NIH, scars might require microdermabrasion by a dermatologist, or a special scar treatment ointment, which can help them to fade and be less visible. Some people have very good luck with them and get rid of their scars entirely. Open sores, or scabs, are just going to take time to heal, so they should...

Is there anyone else who has had experience with the above medication? I need input please. ## I know a bit about Adderall, what do you need to know? ## Yes, my son takes this medication. He is 13 and was previously taking concerta (which was wonderful). He was recently switched to Adderral by his doctor. He went through puberty and his metabolism changed and caused the concerts to not be effective any longer. As far as this med, I am not happy with it and i am having his prescription chg'd next just isnt effective for my son, that's not to say that it isn't a good med, but just not for my child. If you need any specific info, post it here and i shall do my best to assist you with anything i can. ## my son is now 9 and he was on adderal for 2 years. At first it was...

Amphetamine vs. Amphetamine salts (generic Adderall)

I have been taking generic Adderall, Amphetamine salts but yesterday when filling my prescription it says now Amphetamine not Amphetamine salts and I feel freaky weird. I have been taking this drug for years and since I took the one with salts yesterday and the one without today I am sure about this not being the same. Can anyone help me find out if there is anything that can be done? Can I call the pharmacy and have them give me the one with salts? I'm not exagerating at all, this Amphetamine without salts is freaking me out. ## What state do you live in? How do the pills look like? Are they different are similar to the Amphetamine? What does it say on your prescription bottle? It seems like you may have gotten desoxyn? Was your original script for Adderall?? Does it say sub for ad...

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...

Round white Adderall 10mg pill with no markings

The prescription bottle says dextroamp-amphet er 10mg cap. The pill in the bottle is round white dome-shaped on both sides and has no markings. Is it a generic or something? ## Not likely Adderall (or any medication that is is governed by the FDA). Which leaves just some vitamins/herbal supplements that can be sold without any identifying markings. If this was given to you by a pharmacy, see them immediately because an employee may be swapping. If there was someone that had it between the pharmacy and you... They probably still have the actual meds.

New Generic 30 Mg Adderall Xr (all orange w/ R 3061 on them) Not As Effective

please share your experience with this never seen before, less effective drug that two different pharmacy's have given to me in last two months. they make me fall asleep! ## Hi shaun, When you switch brand names or manufacturers, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the binders or fillers that they put with it. Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each brand, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. Because everyone is different, your body may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they're both Adderall Xr), due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Although I haven't taken this medication, I can say that they probably have an array of...
