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 ...

Sandoz Adderall

Sandoz is the best generic ir adderall I've used. August 11, 2017 I was told by the pharmacist they no longer produce this product. I asked if brand name was available and was told yes. When I received them I noticed they were made by Teva and let me tell you they are awful. I don't know what to do if I can't find a decent generic brand. ## Activis (spell check?) is pretty good. I also went from Sandoz to Teva, not by choice, and hated it. Then I tried Activis, and I'm happy with it. ## That's strange if it is discontinued but CVS just gave me Sandoz Adderall today 9/5/2017 , I had requested corepharma because previously they gave me Mylan brand, which was Bad. I did well on corepharma but the only generic they could get was Sandoz. ## It is possible that just that p...

Dextroamphetamine ER spansules generic experiences?

Hey all, I take Dex IR for ADHD-C in the afternoons and it works great. I need to find an XR medication to take in the AM that works as well as my PM Dex booster. Pdoc and I have tried Adderall XR (made me fatigued, flat, and surly--I don't think my brain plays well on l-amphetamine) and Vyvanse (GI side effects and felt like a sugar pill--don't think I metabolize it correctly). I'm thinking ER Dextroamphetamine (the spansules) might be the next logical thing to try. Generics are tricky and I know there is no longer a brand name Dexedrine Spansule. So, for those on the generic dextroamphetamine spansules, what generic brand do you use/have tried, and what do you think? Thanks. ## Hello Anhedonia ADHD, It would be wreckless of me or anyone on the internet to recommend a gener...

aurobindo vs sandoz Adderall

Sandoz version of generic Adderall 20mg is the same garbage Adderall generic Aurobindo. I mean exactly the same pill! They stamp a different name on the outside of the bottle, but its all made at that awful Aurobindo cheap/ fake pharmaceutical company, These pharmaceutical companies think they are so smart! You can put whatever name on the outside of the bottle you want... it's still going to be garbage. ## Hello, Christine! How are you? I'm sorry that you are so unhappy with this medication. As to the pills, under law, the U.S. FDA requires every company to use a unique imprint to enable identification of manufactured products in case of emergency. Thus, the imprints are not repeated from one company to another. However, the manufacturer listed on the label by your pharmacy cou...

is 72 hours long enough to test clean for methamphetamine

Is 72 hours long enough to test clean for methamphetamines? I took it Saturday morning and have a urinalysis on Tuesday afternoon. ## I have been locked up 2 years been clean from drugs. I used Methamphetamine Wednesday @ 9pm and had to take a UA Friday @ 4pm. I sweat alot at work and drink lots of water. Do you think I passed? What are my chances? ## Is 92 hrs long enough to have urine test for methamphetamines come back with negative results? What are the chances of having positive readings? Last dose was Thursday evening and was tested the following week on Wednesday at 6:30pm. Please can somebody ease my mind and answer this for me..I'm freaking out!!! ## Depending on the route of administration and if you didn't have more than half a gram you should pass easily.

Adderall IR 20 mg Aurobindo, Teva or Sandoz

I have a prescription for 20 mg Adderall IR and my generic options are Aurobindo, Teva or Sandoz. Which one of these would you recommend? I've read posts that say Aurobindo is the worst but seems to be the one most pharmacies are pushing (or stock) right now. My script is for 90 pills so I can try 20 mg a day or cut one in half and try 30mg/day to find what works best for me. I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks. ## It may be a challenge tell you which one will work best for you, since we are all different. For example, I've always done well with Teva medications, but someone else may feel the same about the ones from Sandoz. I am also rather indifferent to the ones from Aurobindo, no results to brag about but also no complaints. Also, since the Hatch-Waxman act of 1984 was p...

Round yellow pill MP 447 - is it adderall?

It is both dextroamphetamine and amphetamine combined. Not quite as strong as the orange 30 mg adderall pill but still a stimulant used for adhd and narcolepsy. ## This tablet is manufactured by Sun Pharmaceuticals and it is a 30mg generic for Adderall that contains mixed amphetamine salts. NDC Code: 57664-647 The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Any idea if these are similar to 30mg Teva Oval tablets? besides that they're both generic for Adderall.... ## My experience is that this drug feels like a large dose of caffeine. Doesnt create a motivation to accomplish tasks whatsoever, just keeps my heart b...

If Taking Adderall Legally And Am Drug Tested After Vyvanse Will I Get Fired

I have a great job, one i hope to retire from. I work for a very major automobile manufacturer. I had a very minor incident driving a vehicle in the plant. It requires a drug test that had no problem taking due to being prescribed adderall the entire time employed there and have passed 2 drug tests for minor incidents with adderall on my medical chart. after the last test, I decided I would try vyvance, (another ad/hd treatment) from a friend, without a prescription, ( only because i wasnt going to be driving again for several weeks and would be out of my system long before that. as luck would have it, they gave me a random drug test that night! ...is the lab gonna detect the difference and fire me?!? ... ## ....if anyone is interested, I passed the d.t :) Thank God!! ## I am in the sam...

generic adderall 20mg

Stay far away from auralife 20mg or adderall generic... CVS f***ed me - kiss this month goodbye. ## Hi was just wondering new to the area and in need of a good doctor that won't have a problem with writing refills for scripts such as clonezapam, ambien, adderall 30mg, and 15mg oxy must be in the area of either FarmVille Lynchburg Amelia Richmond or chesterfield Virginia ## Email {edited for privacy}. Can anyone please recommend a doctor? Thanks. I live in Richmond. Work in Chesterfield. From Amelia. ## Hello fcvs, What is your particular issue with the brand? Was it simply that it did not give the desired effect or was it that the brand made you feel ill?

Is G456 an adderall? Compared to the prescribed adderall the one receive in my refill are orange solid and I find the capsule form time release works perfect for me, can anyone till me the difference with the time release verses the solid orange adderall pill? ## G456 is time releases generic adderall. If I understand you correctly it sounds like the orange solid pill is immediate release generic adderall. ## Yes, the tablet with the G456 marking is manufactured by Impax generics and they list as containing 30mgs of mixed Amphetamine salts in a time released formulation. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, anorexia, and irritability.

Aurobindo vs Sandoz Adderall and chronic pain

Has anyone had any issues with aurobindo causing chronic pain, this all started when I was taking vyvanse 2 years ago then switching to aurobindo, I had lower back pain numbness, but when I stopped taking my adhd meds the pain went away. I am being switched to Sandoz medication 10mg tomorrow, can someone give me any reference to this type of generic? ## YES!!!! Doesn't work like Teva. Been on this med most my life! Started using pharmacy at Dr office and they use Aurobindo. Started having extreme back pain, leg pain, foot pain all right side. Migraines, falling asleep. I quit taking for 30 days. All symptoms stopped. I am going to speak to my dr. I would stay away from it at all costs. Walgreens still uses Teva. i have used them forever and am going back. Good luck. .God Bless. Plea...

Ritalin sr 20 mg tablets

I was told by my pharmacist today that brand name (Novartis)-ritalin 20 mg tablets sr (sustained-release), have been discontinued. I cannot find anything on the internet to confirm this. He filled one-third of the prescription and said to contact the doctor to decide what to do. He said ritalin capsules, 20 mg la (long-acting) is still available from novartis. Has anyone out there had any similar difficulties? This may cause problems with my insurance plan...or delays. And I don't have transportation to go from pharmacy to pharmacy looking for ritalin tabs 20 mg sr. Would appreciate any feedback. Thank you in advance. ## Sunday night, and my Rite Aid pharmacist called to tell me the same thing. He said any pharmacy (Rite Aid, Walmart and more) that orders their pills from McKesson w...

Ritalin pill differences - Imprints of T 175 and Dan 20

My daughter gets prescribed 20mgs of Ritalin instant release (Dan 20) 3 times a day. I had to go to a different pharmacy and they gave me a yellow pill round with T 175 on one side. Is this the same thing? It doesn't seem to be working as well!!! ## Yes, it is also a generic for Ritalin, it contains 20mgs of Methylphenidate. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, and anorexia. Has there been any change, or is she still having a problem with it? Is she on any other medications? ## Thank you and Yes she takes 0.1 mg of clonidine mood stablizer and it also helps her sleep at night ## Ahh Finally Found a Site Where I Can Get Quick Answers Without All The Login Has...

Daytrana patches expired?

Yes, the patches are ok. If anything, they may lose some potency but it won't harm you. Many times, expiration dates are set to facilitate new purchases. ## Hello Kevin, According to the manufactures website the patches lose potency and do not become dangerous as you said, however, while there is an obvious benefit for them to have you purchase new patches that isn't the reason that they put the expiration date on the patch. Expiration dates on medicines are a requirement from the FDA even when there is no danger present from the expiration. All medicines, prescription or over the counter, should have an expiration date or best used by date. The reason the FDA does this is pretty simple, you take medicine for it to do a specific job and if it's potency has been diminished or...

doctors adderall xr klonopin connecticut

I'm looking for a private doctor to get back on my meds, adderall xr, klonopin, and subutex. Since this is a weird combo most doctors don't want to prescribe mymeds any more. My doc retired and the other moved. For like 4 years I have been looking for a doctor with no luck. If anyone has a good doctor that will prescribe my meds for me again please let me know I can't keep borrowing them from my mom or friend. I am a 28 year old female with three children . I need my meds!! ## Hello, Jess! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Due to the new regulations that were set forth by the DEA last year, you'll need to see specialists to have such medications prescribed, now.

Mydayis 50mg getting used to it

Hi, I currently take Mydayis 50mg once a day in the morning and have been fir several months. I’m finding myself getting used to it earlier and earlier in the day but it still works great while it does. It stops around 1 or 2. My question is where does a dr go from here. Would the best thing to do be to add an adderall instant release in the afternoon? I’m not sure laws on prescribing more than one Mydayis per day which would be ideal. ## I've been talking that combo for about a year now- Mydayis 50mg around 7am and Adderall 20mg around 3... it's absolutely perfect for my long days and nights of needed organization and concentration. I dont sleep much more than 4hrs a night during the week, but that works for me ## Hello Jack Lovel, Honestly it's going to be an o...

Sandoz Methylphenidate Availability

Can anyone tell me if they have completely stopped making Methylphenidate 20 mg? Just the regular tablet. Not the extended release / yellow round tablet with sz imprinted on them manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals... ## I was panicked to think that might be the case, but I just found it at a CVS (in Tucson). From my efforts to find it, this is what I have learned… each CVS may give you a different answer, from "we have no control, we only receive what is sent to us" & "I have no way of finding out anything for you"... to "sure, I can order that for you". Bottom line, to find Sandoz methylphenidate don't give up after calling one or two CVSs! ## Hello Just curious, According to the FDA there is no stoppage or shortage of these pills only the exte...

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...

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...

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. ...
