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...

Teva Barr Dextroamphetamine sulfate fraud placebo

I have been on Barr/Teva dexedrine sulfate, [generic] for 14 years. After 5 "shortages" I recently received back my script, butt it's a placebo !!!! Nothing at all. I took 25 10 miligram tabs; nothing at all. It's an unethical and disgusting scam. Am writing every politician, fda, Quality control, anyone who can address the monster of a crime. ## I feel the same way. The Dex 10's that were given to me had to be abused to have any effect. There is some FAKE crap out there. I have narcolepsy and took 60mg of adderall cor brand and never woke up. I feel sorry for kids with ADD and being forced to take a fake pill thinking its real only to screw up there homework and ultimately their lives. Something is Rotten in the generic stimulant area. FDA could give two s***s less ...

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 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 ...

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...

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...

doctors that prescribe ADHD medications

I need a Doctor that will prescribe adderall or other ADHD medications in Portland, OR. I had a script before I moved here, but no luck finding a doctor that will let me have my script again. I really need this medication. I do not abuse it, but recently I've had a terrible time with Care Oregon. I'm willing to pay out of pocket, but some psychiatrists still will not even take an appointment with me bc I'm in the system under Care Oregon. In Arkansas, it was no problem. I had medicaid. My medicade was smoothed over due to the affordable care bs and it has been a year of red tape. I'm moving back to California and I am sure it will be very difficult there as well. Anyone know what I should do? I am thinking that I should schedule an appointment with a private practice and...

Can U Take Adderall And Phentermine Together

I have taken 20mg of adderall and would now like to take a 37mg phentermine. Is this ok? ## It generally isn't advisable, due to the fact that they are both stimulants, so combining them can result in elevated blood pressure and heart rate, which may put you at risk of a heart attach or stroke. Learn more Adderall details here. Learn more Phentermine details here. Are there any other comments or questions? ## 20 mg of adderall should give you intense effects if you are not a daily prescription user. If you are trying to increase the stimulant effect I would suggest against the phentermine and trying taking tums or some form of bicarbonate 30-60 mins prior to adderall to increase absorption. Also, a diet high in acidity (especially soda) will greatly decrease absorption of the drug. ...

Round Orange 30mg U31 Adderall - Fake / Too Big

Got orange round Adderall 30 mg tablets with U31 on them but I am 99.9% POSITIVE just on size alone that they are fake. True or false my friend and I can't seam to agree although I know I'm right that the round addys weather generic or not ARE ALL THE SAME SIZE DESPITE THE MILIGRAM correct?? ## Did the aurobindo adderall happen to give you any long term side effects? I'm not sure what else to do but keep taking them. Rite Aid told me I can't return it or anything and I need something to concentrate. I apparently have to wait until my next prescription. The pharmacist recommended that I increase my dosage (if I speak to my doctor about it). The headache is driving me insane, I can't do anything. ## Umm they weren't totally legit lol. Wanted to just prove that the ...
