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 and new employment drug test

I took 90mg total of adderall on friday, last dose was at 10pm. I got called to come do an interview on wed at 10 am and urine test also. Concerned I will pass it or not!? ## I just got my cdl license. Start orientation with a trucking company that does hair follicle test. I have taken 10mg of adderall everyday for about 3 weeks. Is that enough to show up on hair follicle test? I test in 2weeks.

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 ...

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...

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...

ADD and Adderall

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...

should 50mg vyvanse capsules be full or half

Some of my capsules are filled all the way some are filled just a little and some are just half of the way which is the proper amount? ## Hi Kim, From what you've stated, it seems like they've been tampered with. I would probably call a local pharmacy and find out if these irregularities are normal. Something just doesn't sound right about each capsule containing what appears to be different doses; let alone the thought of being shorted on the full amount. Did you get this filled at a licensed pharmacy or come about it through some other means? I'm just curious because that would probably help determine their legitimacy. Thanks for any additional info you might have. ## I just got 30 day supply of 50 mg vyvanse & over half of my pills were half filled. This really ma...

adderall xr generic brand

I have been taking adderall 30mg for two years now and it really helps me. but my last script I got filled was a blue capsule and is a generic brand..Dextroamp. this is awful. I refuse to take these pills. but due to my ins I can not get them changed..I know it depends on what mfg your pharmacist goes with. but my point is how can they even sell these things to drug stores anyways.. my doctor also told me they get lots of complaints on these pills and that they are gonna check further into the mfg of these things.. ## Hello, Debora! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you've had. What are the markings on it? That would enable me to check more information on it for you. The color isn't enough to go on. The FDA lists this medication as carrying the risk of bein...

adderall doctors in pittsburgh pa

I have severe ADHD AND I NEED TO FIND A DOCTOR IN MY AREA WHO WILL TAKE ME WITHOUT Insurance I don't have any insurance right now so I'll have to pay cash. I live in Pittsburgh pa. ## Hello, Mickey! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no listing of doctors according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. And due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist to have it prescribed and the fact that you don't have insurance is going to make most of them reluctant to prescribe such a medication. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, anorexia...

Replacement for former Teva/Barr Dextrostat 10 mg I/R

Shire US discontinued the mfg of DextroStat, at the end of the year 2007. Another bought out the license to produce DextroStat, but, it was also discontinued by Phys Total Care at the end of 2008, only available in 2008 in 5 mg, as the 10 mg was discontinued. I believe the license/patent, had expired, as well, as "Dextrostat" was a patented license by Richwood Pharmaceuticals of Kentucky beginning in the year 1994, and, ShireUS bought the patent rights, and, merged Richwood into ShireUS, with headquarters, in, Wayne PA 19087 soon after 9/11/2001. As we all know who are very used to Orange Book FDA ratings, the rare AA rated Dexedrine by Glaxo Smith Kline in 5mg I/R doses, and, DextroStat, was also AA rated by Orange Book out of 17 categories, but, both vanished from the shelves,...

hair follicle test for methamphetamine

Would 1 line of methamphetamine 30 days ago show up in a hair folical test ? ## A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time.

Vyvanse affecting a woman's PH balance. HELP!

Has anyone had this problem? I had been on adderall for a couple of month and then was taken off of adderall and put on vyvanse. Since then, I have notice my pH vaginal balance is off.

Hair follicle drug test methamphetamine

I took a dose of methamphetamine 3 weeks ago. I hadn't taken any since last year. Will it show up on a hair follicle drug test? ## A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time. A 1.5 inch sample, cut at the scalp line, will go back 90 days. In your case it all depends on how much you took in. My best guess is that it won't show up in a hair drug test because you didn't do enough. ## I used methamphetamine 45 days ago and took a hit on Tuesday, coke a few times about 60 days ago.. been clean since.. one time use.. will i pass ## im 24 days clean of meth. prior to my first day clean i was smoking probably a 20 sac a day for about a month. if i take a hair follicle test within the week, what are the chances for a clean test? ## Again, A hair drug test is meant to ...

Phentermine and Cocaine Hair Follicle Testing

I had a hair follicle test done for CPS. I have been taking diet pills (phentermine), but instead of 3 a day I took 7 the day of the test. Will it show up in the hair follicle that I am taking too many? Also, I had put a little cocaine on my pinky 10 days before and rubbed it on my gums. Will that show up on the hair test too?!
