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...

Find a doctor who prescribes either ritalin or adderall for my ADHD in Southwest Florida.

I've had adhd since childhood and it has gotten increasingly worse. I've tried EVERYTHING and found that only these two medications really work. My doctor dropped me due to something regarding Obamacare and I NEED to have my prescriptions refilled! These drugs have literally brought my life back to normal! Please tell me of a doctor who understands the severity of the condition and will prescribe the right medications somewhere in Southwest Florida. ## Obamacare has to do with getting medical coverage, not whether or not your doctor treats you. And as to getting the medications that work for you, you'll need to see a new doctor and make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records. Once they can see what has and hasn't worked for you, as documented by fellow ph...

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...

effectiveness of various manufacturers generic adderall

Many pharmacies use whatever companies products are currently available to to dispense. Shire's name brand products are often covered under all but a few insurance companies. It is the "most effective" in Shire's opinion. Teva, a Israeli pharmaceutical firm, as well as others make generic off shoots of mixed amphetamine salts cocombinations. They may be in short supply in areas. Small independent pharmacies are not allotted as many of these CII stimulates. Paying cash is preferred by pharmacies if generic substitutions are not marked or not in stock. One takes what one can afford or even find. My MD always issues me three different but similar Rx's and DOES NOT label them "NOT TO BE ISSUED A MONTH APART." A issuance of a Rx of a CII like generic Adderal's...

what pill is round scored on one side with 790 on the front and GG on the back

I'm not sure of the color but I believe it is a light yellow. ## Based on your description, I located the pill to be a 20 mg Methylphenidate HCL tablet. And yes, the pill color is a light yellow. Methylphenidate is the most commonly prescribed psychostimulant and is indicated in the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and narcolepsy. To view information about this drug, please click on the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## I have ADHD and narcolepsy. Dr won’t give me a refill of Provigil because I found out I have bipolar a few months ago. I get it because I need to be awake during the day for my kids and asleep at night.

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 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...

False Positive For Methamphetamine On Drug Test

I took a urine drug test for my job and they said it came back positive for methamphetamine, but I dont use methamphetamine. I've just been real sick the whole week before and took a lot of diff. meds to break da fevers and my bad cough. What could have caused it to come up positive? ## Well, I can't check the specific medications, since you didn't list what you took, but there are some cold remedies on the market that can give false positives for Methamphetamine. Some examples would be: NyQuil, Tavist-D, Sudafed and Dimetapp. Can you post back with more information on what you took? If so, I'll gladly check them for you. ## I also got a false positive for methamphetamines on a drug test after taking perscription Nalex-A , a decongestant. Is there some response from the ...

Sudden dextroamphetamine price quadruple????

What happened? Oh, no... I am f+#*ed. Went to Walgreens to fill dextroamph rx tonight. Instead of approx. $75 they said for me with self-pay it's $355+!!!! This is for ONE month. No way I can afford it! Suddenly? What the _ do I do? Taper down with the 2 more days of pills that I have? So, you just blow, they are saying to me. Just be sick, and here, we'll make it so you're much, much sicker!!! Are all the pharmacies going to have the same astronomical price hike? Has anyone got information about about this? ## The exact same thing happened to me on Nov 1st. I live in south florida. I have 60 dexedrine, 10mg tablets and always costs me around $27. I went in to Walgreens and he said $181. I nearly fell over. So of course I didn't get them. When I visit home in Colorado in...

Another adderall shortage what the hell

I am in Massachusetts and another adderall shortage, so far it's the 30mg. Manufacturer will not give my pharmacy a date that they can supply. How is a shortage possible, I tried every other drug out there and only adderall works, if I don't take it I cant function at work and will end up loosing my job. ## I am very sorry about the problem you're having. Have you had any luck finding it, yet? Unfortunately, shortages occur almost every year. Each manufacturer is assigned an allotment by the DEA, which is based on the prior years demand for legitimate prescriptions. Once they hit that manufacturing limit, they have to go through a process to request an adjustment to their allotment, and wait to see if it is approved, before they can start manufacturing, again. It should also...

dextroamphetamine and medicare

My mother was told that her doctor could no longer prescribe the dextroamphetamine that she has been taking, at minimum dose, for oer 50 years. She takes it for ADHD and narcolepsy. Her doctor tells her that it is no longer legal to "provide" it for her because congress has made it illegal to "provide" to any medicaid patient for any reason. Can someone help me follow this up? If the story she is telling me is true, I need to write my congressman to protest. Since when does the Federal government have the right to interfere in our private health care needs - she is not asking them to pay for the medication, she has simply LOST THE RIGHT TO HAVE IT PRESCRIBED TO HER. Is there anyone else out there that thinks this is WRONG?! ## This is not true. I take 2, 10mg dextroamphe...

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...

generic 30mg adderall xr coupon

No insurance and they are charging me 301.. ## Depending on the dose the price per pill may vary. Generics are another way of cutting costs. Shire has programs if you qualify. Good luck ## Anyone can use Rx coupons.. I get 120 30 mg mixed amphetamine salts, the orange Teva with a coupon is 83.63 at walgreens. ## Hi kassie, there are rx coupons available for generic Adderall. For example, this site offers a free Rx Discount Card which you can bring to your pharmacy when you refill your script. It can typically save you 20% or more, is reusable, and doesn't expire. Hope this helps! ## Kassie, Walgreens has A discount card they can use for You.

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 ...

Sandoz adderall 20mg IR

I have been taking adderall for over 10 years now. Started with Sandoz, which I have found to work the best. All the pharmacies I have been to have moved to other brands (Barr, Teva). They are ok. Does anyone know of any pharmacies in the Richmond, Va area that still carry Sandoz 20mg IR? If not, any other brands that you have found that work similar to Sandoz and where I can find them? ## There is really no best one that anyone can recommend. Since we are all different, the Adderall generic from one manufacturer that works well for you, may not work as well for someone else, and vice-versa. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, and insomnia. What types of issues are having with the alternat...
