New M 8956 Adderall XR generic beware

A friend of mine went to Walgreens this month and got Mallinckrodt generic 30mg XR's. The imprint is M 8956. They look like that garbage CVS generic with a clear bottom. I have to fill my script tomorrow and I plan on asking what they have before I fill it. I suggest everyone else does the same. ## I'm new and just got my 3rd XR script filled today and immediately noticed the beads inside the capsule were white and not orange, and found they were made by Mallinkrodt. I haven't tried them yet but would the Walgreens Pharmacy exchange for a new script by a different manufacturer? Not looking forward to a whole month of something with so much negative feedback..

how long does dexedrine stay in your system

I was on Dexedrine basically for weight loss, I do not have ADD or anything like that. I am off of it now, can someone tell me how long it takes to completely get out of your system. I was on 10 mg for just a few months. No side effects or withdrawal. I just want to know how long it stays in your system. ## It will be out of your system in about 3 days. ## Im on it for add, and the answer to your question is no longer then 2 days. The half life is really long for it. so ur best bet is 1-2 days might be sooner if your running alot of excersise ## thank you for your answers. I don't know why I thought it would be longer. I just want to make sure that it is completely out of my system because another dr. wants me to take something else for another reason and it can't be taken with ...

Does Dexedrine really help the obese?

How much weight, per week can one expect to lose on dexedrine? ## It has successfully helped some people to lose weight. How much they lose varies and it must be combined with appropriate diet and exercise. This is a simulant medication containing Dextroamphetamine. Common side effects can include: nausea, insomnia, anorexia and headache. You can read more here: Does anyone else have experience using this medication? ## I am taking prescribed Dexamphetamine but cannot afford to lose any weight, which I am doing. Are there any helpful hints anyone can offer me. A Dietition is attempting to help, but without success. Thanks, Jane ## Only because dexamfetamine sulphate is a very strong stimulant which takes away any desire to eat... ## dexedrine is a powerful appetite suppressant. When the...

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 ...

Can Stacker 3 XPLC cause a false positive for Amphetamines?

On probation and failed a drug test for amphetamines. I have been free of drugs since Dec of 2016, but I have recently been taking Stacker 3 XPLC. Could this be what caused me fail for amphetamines? Although they no longer contain ephedra. ## I would like to know if Stacker 3 or Vapo Inhalers can cause false positives in urine drug tests for methanthetamines? I tested positive at my last 2 Dr appointments. I’ve never tried ANY kind of drug. The only things I take on regular basis are both Stacker 2 & 3, Sudafed, and I use Vapo Inhalers a lot due to my sinus problems. ## I'm assuming so since I've had the same issue..it looks like someone above also has.

Amphetamines Dexedrine

Why are amphetamines so difficult to get prescribed when you suffer from disabling cfs? These are the only thing that help to have a life. ## Hello, Angie! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. But the reasons are due to the facts that this medication tends to be habit forming and is very commonly abused, thus most doctor's are reluctant to prescribe such stimulants. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Many people can get addicted to stimulants. Also their is a "responsibility" to maintain the person using the drugs.

Dexedrine: How much is too much?

Is 30 mg of dexedrine (15x15) too much in one day? ## The maximum standard daily dose of it can go up to 40mgs and in rare cases 60mgs, where a higher dose is needed to treat certain severe conditions. Learn more Dexedrine details here. However, you should stick with whatever dose your doctor has prescribed. if it isn't working, then you should contact your doctor to discuss possible solutions. Are there any other questions or comments? ## 30mg/day is not too much. The prescribed dose is not limited by fixed daily maximums but by the clinical judgment and willingness of your physician. The 40mg/day and 60mg/day maximums for dextroamphetmine sulfate were established long ago and for ADHD in children. (At the time the "experts" established these maximums, the experts also said...

Dexedrine Brand Mfg History: SKF, SKB, GSK.

Glaxo Smith Kline had Abbott Labs of North Chicago Illinois manufacturing under license from GSK the "E-19" Dexedrine Sulfate during most of this decade, until, the Spring of 2009, when manufacturing of 5 mg orange heart I/R Dexedrine was stopped, a production run since 1937!!! It is my understanding that the "brand Dexedrine Spansules" the extended release 5 mg version, also has been discontinued. Citation needed. Previous, Glaxo Smith Kline had Cardinal Pharma of both Kentucky, and, another firm out of Albuquerque NM, producing, the 10 and 15 mg. brand Dexedrine pink and white pellet Spansules. In New Mexico, it was Catalent Pharma. "i do not have a clue in 2012, if GSK, has anyone producing for USA citizens their famous brand name Dexedrine Spanusles. I do know th...

Can't find brand name Dexedrine Spansules and Zenzedi

I usually use CVS, but the pharmacist told me that their wholesaler does not carry Zenzedi. Those who take this medication, what pharmacy do you use? The only mom and pop pharm in my town said it was too expensive to order, but that chains that use a certain wholesaler different than the one CVS uses would be able to get it. I am not asking about (the vastly inferior, IME) various generics of dextroamphetamine IR. Been there, hated it. Zenzedi 15 mgs works for my ADHD-C and narcolepsy the way brand-name Adderall IR used to when it was manufactured by Shire, before it was taken off patent and the original formula changed. I am having similar trouble finding brand name Dexedrine Spansules (manufactured by Amedra and Amneal). I do not find the generic by Actavis/Teva supplied by all the ph...

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 ...

No numbers - please help ## This doesn't match any prescription medications that are in the databases, nor have I found it listed in over the counter drugs. But, there have been reports of some illicit Amphetamine tablets that have markings like this on them. You can learn more Amphetamine details here.

General care provider that prescribes adderall and xanax in Wisconsin.

Hey, I have been prescribed adderall for the last 10 years, but recently I was abruptly cut off. This was due to an illegal invasion of my privacy, and I have severe add/adhd. As a result, I'm about to lose my college investment. I also am in a methadone maintenance program, but I desperately need my add meds. back to regain my executive functioning skills. I have never abused my adderall and my records concur. Is there a recommended doctor in eastern Wisconsin that will prescribe adderall and xanax in conjunction with one another? In addition, they must be ok with prescribing to a patient already is in a methadone program, due to an opiate addiction. I have severe anxiety as well, and I was just about to graduate with a dual-degree from a prestigious university until I was abruptly...

Horrible days with generic adderall 30mg

When I went to Walmart to refill my script, they gave me this generic crap. Everyday I take it, I end up regretting it. I am still scattered like a flipping crazy. It is NO GOOD, plus my stomach was upset all day and it gave me acid reflux. I am lactose intolerant and have to be gluten free, what the heck did they add to it. One pill & the difference is already SO VERY obvious, a week and I am pissed! I have a hard enough time getting through a day, I don't need this crap adding to it. ADHD ain't not game and is bad enough! ## Hello, Tlloyd! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. What the markings on them? This information would enable me to double check the inactive ingredients for you. The FDA lists this medication as being a stimu...

Lannett pharmaceuticals vs teva brand adderall

Today I picked up my 20mg x 2 daily adderall IR Instead of my usual adderall made by teva brand i was given a new type that I have never had before..it's supposedly a newer generic version from Lannett pharmaceuticals. It looks just like teva accept it's a lighter shade of peach color and it doesn't have that sweet flavor. It's more chalky like..its early evening and I decided to try one two hours have gone by and still nothing. Humm my question is has anyone else had the opportunity to try these newer version of adderall 20mg from Lannett pharmaceuticals?. I will come back in a hour or so and give an update..oh i read a different blogpost and have read that some actually liked it better than teva brand but wished for the sweet taste but they claimed to like it so let...

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 ir is not working as well as adderall xr

I recently switched from adderall xr 30mg to adderall ir 20mg because of the price of the medication. Now im in space and unproductive, moody and sleepy. WHY??? ## The XR was a controlled release medication, the drug is released slowly over hours of time to keep a steady dose in your body. The IR is instant release, so all the medication is released at once and also processed out of your body much faster. Did you doctor approve this switch? ## are you taking the generic form of adderall IR ?.. because even though your doctor and pharmacist says its the same as brand.. trust me its not. i was prescribed strattera when i was first diagnosed with ADD/Depression and it pretty much seemed to magnify the problems i already had.. sleepy.. forgetful/foggy mind.. headaches.. moody .. so i was sw...

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,...

White generic adderall tablet no imprint

Hi there, I got adderall from a friend who says he has his own prescription, but I don't know if it is actually adderall. It is 5 mg and is a white tablet with a split indent down the middle. There is no imprint on it that says '5' or 'ad', absolutely nothing. It could be any pill. He says the generic forms of many pills don't have a marking on them. Is this true?? Or is this some random pill that could be anything made in someone's basement?!?! ## You are correct, it could be anything made in someone's basement or an over the counter product. If there is no marking on it, you can rule it out completely as being a legal prescription medication from the U.S. or Canada. All manufactured tablets and capsules of prescription medications are required to have a...
