False Positive On Drug Test For Amphetamines

I am on random drug testing for probation and got a letter in the mail from my p.o saying I failed for amphetamines on the 13th of October. I was sick, and not working on the 11th or 12th. I took some OTC medication for my cold. I took some Allegra D and some Day Quil. Will this cause a false positive? How do I go about disputing this. I can't loose my job for going to jail, and certainly am not getting locked up for doing s drug I never would do, nor know where to even find it. What do I do, should I get an attorney? ## Did they send the sample out to a lab for additional testing? Doing so should determine exactly what you took and rule out any false positives. Learn more drug test details here. There is Pseudoephedrine in the Allegra D and it has been known to cause such false pos...

Dextrostat

I had been taking the non-generic form of dextrostat for 7 years (30 mg 3 times a day) which worked fine for me. Back in May (??) my pharmacist advised me that dextrostat was no longer available but the generic dextrostat was. I tried the generic dextrostat which is supposed to be exactly the same drug as dextrostat, but it is not working for me. It might be the same in books but my body knows there is a huge difference. It's like I am not taking anything at all. I take dextrostat because I suffured a stroke which made me slow in speech, thinking and movement and I also suffer with narcolepsy. The dextrostat helps me to function normally, at least better than I would if I did not take it. Back to the problem: Generic dextrostat is NOT working and I need to know if anybody has experi...

Adderall 30mg Which Generic Brand Is Better

Is the round pink 30 mg Adderall generic name Sandoz/Eon with the markings of CDR 136 on one side more or less effective than the oval orange 30 mg Adderall generic name Barr/Teva with the markings of b974 on one side and 30 on the other side? What is the most effective/potent Adderall that is generic and 30 mg? ## Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each of these brands, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. So it's quite possible that you may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they are the same drug & same dosage); mostly due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Have you taken either one of them yet? I'd probably suggest giving them e...

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...

Trying to find a doctor for Adderall in Port Charlotte Fl

I have a traumatic brain injury and secondary ADHD because of it. I'm looking for a doctor in the port Charlotte area who will perscribe me 2 /30mg XR Adderall with 2 /20mg IR Adderall. My current pyschriatirist is making it hard for me to and because of my cognitive deficits high dose stimulants seem to be the only thing that helps me fight back against all the fatigue and lack of productivity I experience due to my brain injury. I don't like having to argue or lie about how much taking the Adderall at this level has benefited my quality of life. I do know one former doctor in Port Charlotte that may be able to help me but it anyone has any idea where I might find the right doctor to understand my circumstances and work with me on this stimulant regiment I'd appreciate your...

unusual side effects of Methylin as a generic for

I have just been given Methylin as a generic for Ritalin. I have taken other generic forms of Ritalin. All others have been called Methylphenidate and have all responded as anticipated. Methylin has been very different. It has made me sleepy, not alert at all and most importantly has significantly lowered my blood pressure while raising my pulse. My last dosage lowered my bp to 63/46, pulse 96. I stopped the medication. Are there any others with similar effects while taking this medication? ## Tell your doctor and pharmacist that this generic doesn't work for you. There is no way that they can force you to take a generic that doesn't work I am not a doctor but all I see is it is the same drug just generic. Different brand. I may be wrong, but ask, I can't see you taking some...

Current Adderall generic manufacturers for June 2017?

Tomorrow I should be filling a script for 30 mg Adderall IR tablets, but I am nervous about getting stuck with a subpar generic. What are the current generic manufacturers as of this month? My only option with my insurance is to fill at Rite Aid or CVS - which generic do they commonly carry? I appreciate your help! ## Spoke with corepharma this morning. They no longer manufacture amphetamine salts. Limited to Sandoz, barr/teva, and a few others now. I was just switched to Aurobindo. IT IS AWFUL. It feels narcotic, makes my add worse, and is inconsistent at best in strength. ## The worst are corepharma's bright pink round pills. CVS buys them at the cheapest rate. Mylan aren't bad with their peach round MA20, but most swear by Sandoz and Barr/teva. ## Being that we all react/resp...

Amphetamines False Positive Drug Test

I have somehow tested positive for amphetamine but the only drug that I touch Is marijuana. How is this possible? It was a urine test done in a hospital. ## If u take allergy pills that sometimes shows up as a false positive for amphetamines if u haven't then I don't know how it happened that's all I know ## It should occur from just marijuana. However, Dloc is correct, these false positives can be caused by other medications, even over the counter products. Did you take anything? ## Nope. Nothing. Not unless you count Tylenol. ## i have had a positive test result for amphetamine.i have never used the drug.the only thing i take is motillium for sickness which contains domperidone.can you help ## @nicole, If you or someone you know is facing serious consequences such as a job...

Methylphenidate refill from APO

I have been taking Methylphenidate mps 20mg for the past few years and doing great. A couple of weeks ago I went up to get my refill but it wasn't the brand I was on. They told me at the drug store that it's the same thing. I was taking them but I am feeling weird along with a upset stomach. Headache. They gave me apo brand. I am wondering if it's just me or are they some what different? I would call my Dr. but he is out of town. Thanking-you in advance. ## Decreased appetite, dry mouth, and nausea are all very common adverse effects of Concerta. The best way to counteract the gastrointestinal discomfort is by timing your medication appropriately with meals. Concerta should generally be taken about 30-45 minutes prior to a meal. Go ahead and try that for a couple of days and...

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...

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,...

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...

Help. Vyvanse was a dream come true for me for a year, but it's not working any more.

I was a scatter-brained mom of two young children, couldn't concentrate, organize, plan, or function at all beyond bare minimal survival. Within a day of starting Vyvanse under my doctor's supervision, I became a whole new person. I was functional again! I could finally sit down and play a board game with my daughter. I was happy, energetic, organized, I could accomplish several major tasks each day rather than only one a day or none at all which had been the case before. I rekindled my love for exercising. Over the course of two years since I began taking Vyvanse, I've transformed from a braindead, overweight stay-at-home mom to a healthy, happy 3.5 GPA college student and a thin, muscular yoga instructor. But the second year has been rougher because the medication's ef...

does the energy drink nos make you test positive for methamphetamine

i went to the hospital for really bad pains felt like i was having back labor and they did some test and one was a drug test and said everything was fine but told me that i tested positive for methamphetamine and i do not do methamphetamine at all and they said that NOS will not do that and they would not take another test of any sort to fix this and they tell me that i can not get it taken off my record i need to know what i can do because this is not right and i will not be labeled something that i am not. ## I drank 3 Nos's last weekend and my random drug screen 4 days later came back positive for Amphetamine and Methamphetamine. I've never used either. ## Did u ever find out how to resolve this? This just happened to my family member and he lost his job and he drank a monste...

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...

adderall 20mg which generic brand is better

So I have been taking 20 mg instant release Adderall for years and I cannot seem to find one that is consistently working for me. The pink ones I was recently taking seem to work great but now have almost completely quit working for me. Any suggestions as to which generic is the best? ## Unfortunately, Adderall is not a good medication as its effectiveness is affected by several things including the food we eat, the timing of food, stomach environment, our psychosocial state etc. Consider talking to your doctor about trying a different stimulant such as Vyvanse which may be a better option. ## Hey Tracy, I also have been taking 20mg Adderall IR twice daily for over 3 years. Before that, it was several years of 70mg Vyvanse. I started out with the Sandoz/Eon peach 401's as my first s...

Which generic Adderall does CVS usually carry?

Does anyone know which generic manufacturer CVS commonly has in stock for both IR and XR Adderall (Amphetamine Salts)? I know they used to carry Mylan for the IR and it's awful. They also used to carry Actavis for the XR which is also terrible, but I don't have many pharmacy choices with my insurance.. and I'm nervous that I'm going to get stuck with Actavis/Mylan... if anyone has any info I'd appreciate it. I live in RI btw. Thank you! ## Different locations carry different manufacturers, brands and generics (and they are always subject to change). The only way to find out what a specific location carries is to go in person as if you are filling your prescription. You can always choose to not accept what they offer you and go somewhere else. After-all it's your ...

Which pharmacies in Georgia carry Sandoz generic Adderall?

After having a bad reaction to the Aurobindo generic, I am determined to find the one generic brand that I know to work consistently for me. Does anyone know where I can find the Sandoz generic in Georgia? Every pharmacy I've checked carried either Aurobindo or Teva, both which have given me pronounced side effects. ## My Costco in Florida sometimes carries Sandoz, but it's a hit or miss. I was told they just go with whichever brand is cheapest to them at the time. ## That is correct, that's how most pharmacies work, they place an order with their distributor, and it is filled with whichever one is available at the cheapest price. They don't generally get to pick which manufacturer's product they will receive. However, if you ask, you might find a pharmacy that will ...

k 102 Ritalin? Do they make you sick?

I have taken Ritalin for years for Narcolepsy. I just got a bottle of yellow pills with K 102 on them. Does anyone else take this brand? They are making me weak, extremely tired and I feel awful. I have never had or seen this brand before. Normally I take Teva. I'm wondering if it's this brand that is making me feel this way? ## These tablets are manufactured by KVK Tech and those can be normal side effects of this medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience dizziness, headache, irritability, and insomnia. NDC code: 10702-0102 How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? It is very odd for this medication to cause you to feel tired, since it usually causes the opposite as a side effect. Are you on any other medications? ## I feel THE EXACT SAME WAY! I usu...
