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 ...

how to get methamphetamine out of your hair for a drug test

I have used methamphetamine maybe 3 times in the past yr. I used 3 days ago, I have a hair test tomorrow. Will it show. I only had just a very small amount. ## No. As a mother in recovery for six months, awaiting the return of my children, I have had 2 hair follicle tests. And no, if you used any amount the day before it would not show up. Because they do not actually use the follicle/root of your hair. They need at least a week or two if new growth to detect anything the day before ## I've been taking methamphetamine everyday for the past 4 months, now i have to take a hair follicle test on monday. Today is saturday. What can i do to pass the test? Please give me a 100% way to pass. ## Did you figure out anything? I have to test as well and I need help. ## What if I took methamphet...

do 50mg vyvanse taste like sugar

Do 50mg vyvanse taste like sugar? ## It's probably too late but anyways... they do/did make 70mg vyvance my brother was prescribed these back in late 2014 ## As for the taste I'm curious. I thought they tasted salty but I opened my bottle (it looked weird) and decided to taste them and it was like semi sweet flour, lol. ## Hello Sadie May, Most credible sources won't really specify the taste of a medication but looking around I have found users of various forums claiming that they do in fact have a rather sweet flavor. I cannot confirm or deny that this is true as I do not take them myself but that does tend to be the general consensus among people on the internet. Hope this helps. ## I dont think they have any taste at all in none of them..the highest dose is 70 mg..and the...

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...

My experience on MyDayIs

Just finished my fist 30 day trial of MyDayIs and am not refilling! Within one week, I was planning my suicide. It was all I could think about most of the time I was on MyDayIs. I’ve never before had such strong suicidal thoughts. My recommendation to anyone considering trying this medication is to share your thoughts while on the medication with someone very close to you. They may just be the ones to save your life. ## Wow! I am so very sorry about what you experienced, that's terrible. How are you doing, now? Some medications do cause that as a side effect in some people that take them, according to NIH studies, which is why these issues are listed in so many black box warnings. Are you doing to try a different medication? ## Doing much better now, thanks for asking. I went ...

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...

difference between amphetamine salts and amphetamine salt combo

I HAVE BEEN TAKING GENERIC ADDERALL which has always been called amphetamine salts. My last script instead of saying amphetamine salts substituted for adderall it says amphetamine salts substituted for amphetamine salt combo? What's this mean? ## Hello, Mary! How are you? It all means the same thing, just different ways of stating it. Adderall actually contains Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine, which is usually listed as mixed Amphetamine salts, so what you've seen are just different variations of the drug name. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, headache. dizziness, insomnia, nervousness and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I don't have insurance and my doctor recently boosted my dose from...

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...

How to get methamphetamine out of your hair for drug tests

Ok so I have to take a hair drug test for a new job. They said it would go back a year and well I am freaking out right now because I took some methamphetamine (a very small amount) back in september of last year. ## A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time. If you only did a small amount it won't show up. Depending when you have to take the test you can do your own anonymous hair drug test to find out for sure. Only body hair can go back approx a year. A 1.5 inch sample cut at the scalp line will give a 90 day history. ## I used some meth back in august . Not a hole lot jus like maybe 6 hits but i am gonnago for a job that requires a hair follicle.test they go back 90 days do you think it will show. ## I am assuming you are a female. Most women don't have much...

Generic Vs Brand Meds of Adderall.

Hello All: Eight years ago I had a gastric bypass losing from 294# to 117# (too low for a 61 yr. old female). Currently 145# & feel good from weight standpoint. I have had many adversities from the bypass with 4 subsequent small bowel resections. I cannot absorb generic meds. This leads me to excess costs on all of my meds. I was changed from brand Lexapro to escitalopram (generic) in June and by Sept., I was suicidal and required intensive treatment until I could get the brand Lexapro. My insurance (Medicare Advantage Plan) is a nightmare to cover any of the brand named meds even when my Psychiatrist states Brand medically necessary. Am also taking Wellbutin SR 450mg/day which is over the recommended max. dose. Dr. is wanting to change me from Wellbutrin SR to Adderall 30mg hoping ...

Adderall by Teva dp 20

I would like some input on Adderall 20 mg Instant Release. I have been through four manufacturers. I was on Activist and lots of people did not like it, however it worked for me. It had its fault but in the end it was recalled. Sometime during that period Teva bought out Activist. Since then I haven't been able to get an instant release to work without bad side effects. Then I was told there was a Name Brand being sold by Teva. I was able to get this with pill logo dp 20. I took only ten milligrams and my heart was racing out of control. I called the F D A and they advised me that the pill with imprint dp 20 was a generic. What I would like to know is how can it be Name Brand when through research shows after Shire discontinued AD 20 there was no other name brand. I have looked up N...

increased dose adderall refill

I have an appt. with a new doctor on Thursday (just moved) and am going to see if we can increase my dose from 30mg ir to 30mg xr and 10mg ir for the afternoon. My previous doctor, who is now out of state, wrote me two scripts with "do not fill until" dates so I would have time to find a doctor. I just filled the last one this past week. Obviously, I will tell my new doctor this and have my records faxed to his office. If he does increase my dose/change the type, will he write me a new script for the xr's to be filled? My body doesn't take well to these instant releases anymore-literally crash everyday by noon & feel lethargic the rest of the day with all focus out the window. P.S. I've had my adderall prescriptions filled at Walgreen's religiously forever so...

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...

Dexedrine availability

I am exceedingly pill-sensitive. Nothing works for me like the old Dexedrine by Smth, Kline, Glaxoc. Is there any place in the world to obtain and fill a prescription for it? ## Hello, Wendy! How are you? It is still available in the U.S., but you may need your doctor to write a prescription as 'brand medically necessary' and to have a pharmacy order it in for you. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, mood swings and anorexia. Has someone told you that it isn't available? ## I was told the same - my pharmacist tried to order more as I was picking up my prescription last week 'suspended indefinitely' ... I'm also extremely 'pill senstive' - ...

What other medication is similar to Adderall IR Peach E404?

Been on Sandoz brand of generic Amphetamine salt combo since 2010. Highly disappointed this month due to the lack of efficacy in the Lot of pills I was given. In short, the pills are pretty much placebo. I'm convinced they run experiments on us without our consent. My question is what if any other drug works similar to adderall? ## Hi Lo, Sorry to hear about your experience with this bad batch of Adderall you received. Was your prescription still being filled with Sandoz this month or was it a different manufacturer of Adderall? If not, have you tried any of the other manufacturers -or- generic versions of amphetamine + dextroamphetamine? Sometimes a lack of efficacy could also be attributed to different binders & fillers in each version that make up a tablet's composition, ...

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...

Orange Oval Pill 3 0 B 974

is it an extended release or quick release (aderrall - imprint: 3 0 b 974) ## There is no quick or immediate release of Adderall or its generics. There are only regular release and the time released. This tablet is regular release 30mg. Learn more Adderall details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## On brand and generic Adderall for some time, I find significant differences. Some make me edgy, some make me sleepy, some work as they should. Different pills are dispensed depending on what is available at the time. Question: Why does Teva's imprint on 30 mg generics change from one pill to the next? The last Rx I got was a combination of two different imprints. Both were football shaped peach colored tabs and all said b 974 on one side and 30 on the other. However on some ...

There Are Three Manufacturers Who Make Methylphenidate

The 3 Manufacturers are Mallinkrodt/Methylin, Sandoz and Watson Pharmaceuticals. On this day, December 3,2011 I learned that if a generic drug is back ordered in lots of different Pharmacies our HMO's will pay for the drug that is prescribed. All who are prescribed Methylphenidate 20 mg. are being turned away by CVS, RiteAid, including the pharmacies in some Giant food stores . If you are prescribed both forms of this drug do not let the Pharmacist fill one part of your prescriptions and if both are on 1 prescription sheet never trust anyone to complete the refill. They'll fill the one they have and as far as the other part, you lose! ## Finally my pharmacy failure has been explained. I went to my CVS Pharmacy and Talked with the manager about the crisis of this back order defen...
