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 ...

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...

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...

doctor that prescribes adderall in or near lima ohio

I need to find a Doctor in Lima Ohio because I cant keep driving back home to get it from my Doctor in Michigan. I'm spending too much on gas. ## Hello, Dale! How are you? Yes, I understand, gas has gotten very expensive. Due to the 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. A regular PCP won't be able to prescribe it for you. The best thing to do would most likely be to set yourself up with a new PCP in your current location, make sure they get a full copy of your current medical records, then have them refer you to someone. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and insomnia. Can an...

what medicine can cause a false positive for methamphetamine hair follicle test

I had a hair follicle test done and it came back positive for amphetamines, and methamphetamine. I was wanting to know if any of the medicines I have been taken can cause a false positive. I have taken adderall, Advil, ibuprofen 800 mg, excedrin migraine, Zantac, night quil, Tylenol, aspirin, Xanax, midol, robaxin, and Abilify. Any information you can give me will be helpful. Thank you for your time. ## It doesnot mean u did anything or took anything. The test is false if u know u did not use. Mygrandson tested pos in two hair tests for morphine and morphine and oxycontin. That was impossiblr. I had samples retested both were CLEAN Cps dismisssed the case but damage was done You know you trusr ur self fight for what u know to be true. ## Adderall is an amphetamine, it will show up as su...

White cross stimulant pill

I took many in the late 60's and early 70's. They were effective, very clean, and probably methamphetamine hydrochloric salts. They were very small tablets. Later on, around 1976 or so they started using caffeine, so that ended that drugs realm and into the methaqualone era that took many, many good people from this Earth. ## I'm surprised that they don't manufacture this medication illegally instead of methampetamine. I would never consider taking amptetamines, but I did take white cross pills to help me get through late night studying. ## I suppose if methamphetamine is the primary ingredient in white cross energy pills, then these drug manufacturers probably assume that they don't need to manufacture anything but methamphetamine and just be straightforward with th...

Pending Recall Teva generic Adderall March 2016 Actavis

For those that feel their Teva brand generic Adderall by Actavis Elizabeth aren't working or making them feel sick, you're right. It is for the 30 mg, 20 mg, 10 mg & 5 mg. Specific info here: fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/EnforcementReports/ucm310739.htm REASON FOR RECALL Failed Impurities/Degradation Specifications: Out of specification for impurities.

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...

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...

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...

Can a Redline drink cause me to test positive

I drank a Redline. Will it cause me to come up positive on a drug screen? ## I came up positive for methamphetamine and Amphetamines after drinking Redline for a week ## I always pop positive for pcp since I started drinking red line. Intake a bottle with me to show the ingredients. ## im so nervous to test positive i drink one everyday ## I'm not in drug court and I drink Redline regularly and have a drug test 2 times per week and get lab tested regularly. No positive results at all. ## Lab tests will break down the test further then a panel test. In the lab they can break down the properties of questioned substance showing on the panel. False positives will break down and no longer show any trace of questioned substance as to a panel will only show presence of it. ## Does it ever ...

I am here to tell you if you pass it is by the grace of God. There is one way I was able to pass but it's tricky.

2017 adderall not working

I've noticed that the last three years in a row around this time either at the Adderall generic Sandoz brand is on backorder or suddenly the pills don't have the same affect. So in essence the pharmacy and drug manufacturers I getting paid while patients suffer without the proper medication. Has anyone else had this happen this month? I am taking the Adderall generic 30 milligrams twice a day I feel like I haven't taken anything. ## What are the markings on the one they've provided you with? I'm sorry, but I need this information in order to research more information on it for you. Can you please post back and clarify? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousnes...

Sandoz Adderall (formerly EON)

I have a bottle of 90 Sandoz Adderall that I don't wan't. It's giving me headaches. I know the pharmacy won't take it back. How do I properly dispose of it without harming the environment? ## HI, Jane! You can take it to your pharmacy for disposal, that's usually one of the things they do. The other option recommended by the FDA actually isn't great for the environment, they instruct you to mix it in with some undesirable substance, such as used cat litter or coffee grounds, place it into a sealed container and dispose of it in the trash. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you! I guess I'll take it to the pharmacy. I wonder how they dispose of it. It's a shame because I've been taking Adderall (a different generic) for a year and it has ...

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...

Sandoz XR adderall

Hello. I've been taking sandoz adderall ir for about 5 months now, so far so good. I am taking around 10mg x2 a day and it doesn't last long enough, and when the crash comes I become very confused and bored. 1. Does Sandoz make adderall xr? 2. If not, what is the best generic for adderall xr? ## Hello Tyler, Yes Sandoz has been making an XR version of their Adderall since mid 2017. Due to the ingredients being different in the XR, as well as other generics, I wouldn't be able to tell you which one would work best for you. It's also worth noting that since you would be switching to the XR the medication may not have as strong of an impact as it used to due to the lower dosages of active ingredients in your system at a time. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Need doctor to prescribe Desoxyn

I am a vet and have ptsd and adhd. A fellow service member gave me dysoxin to help with overwhelming anxiety before a speech I gave at a convention last week. I ask my dr for a scrip and he said no.

Response to a chain or thread for the Adderall population

I do agree with a person that posted that about how the pain med population (my words) definitely has a pain chart forum. I’m a tad bit envious, I must say. However, I'm so glad they put it out there! Because from what I read it does help lots of folks. So yes! We need the Adderall/generic (also called Amphetamine Salt Combo-Amphetamine Tab) - there are others but yes let’s do it. We could call it the “Need2Focus4um”... lol. The pain med thread gets to vent. They cheer each other on. I respect that. It’s so vital to get things off your chest. ## On this site anyone who wishes to is totally welcome to create a thread and start discussing their issues, and/or whatever medication(s) they take to help. The site administrator doesn't have a problem with ...

yellow swarm energy pills

herbal energy ## Can Ingrediants found in these gas station capsules cause a false reading for metabolite of amphetamine. Not guilty of using illicit drugs or having done anythingthing else. Tried blackjack. And Swarms by stacker2 and insanelabs Focas? ## Hello, Upon doing a search of the Yellow swarm energy pills I found that the FDA has banned the sale of them in the United States due to them not disclosing the entirety of their contents and ingredients. I suggest that you don't take these pills since you can't verify the contents and taking them would be a risk that is in my opinion not worth taking. #1 JJ - I haven't found anything that would support this claim but since the pills do not fully disclose their ingredients and are illegal in the US for this purpose it is po...
