Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts

I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

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 going to have major problems with withdrawal...

need doctor to prescribe adderall in bucks county pa

My phyciatrist that was treating me for my ADD & Anxiety up and left all of his patients last year, never to be seen again. I found another Dr within a couple weeks who was willing to continue my treatment. Then in April/May 2017,I lost my insurance, and there was no way I could afford the visit PLUS the medications. I take 30mg of Adderall 2x's a day and 2mg Xanax 3 x's a day (have all medication history for the past 2 years to back this up). Now that i have insurance again i need a Dr b/c my previous Dr is booked for the next 6 months. At this point i don't care if i have to pay cash for the initial visit, my medications are covered so it's not as difficult. Every Dr I've called so far is either not accepting new patients, even when i said i'd pay cash, or ...

What is a light blue pill with u27 imprinted on one side

Light blue with cross on one side and other side has u27, a round pill ## This tablet contains 10mgs of Mixed Amphetamine salts, it is a generic for Adderall, which is most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Does this act or give the same effect as the narcotic known as methamphetamine? ## I'm a kid who was prescribed this by my doctor, but he wasn't giving me them, he was selling them and he told my doctor I needed a higher dose so he could sell them at a higher price. But then my Aunt got temporary custody of me so she made me take them not knowing what happened and so I have...

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...

Adderall XR causing extremely dry eyes

Ok I have searched this topic for months now and no one else seems to have a solution for my problem. I am currently taking 30mg Adderall XR which is prescribed by the doctor. I take the generic bc I've always been told there is no difference. I take my medication on the days I work and I take it very early so I am not up all night. This medication really seems to help me HOWEVER my eyes seem to become very dry!! Sticky almost and I'm in constant discomfort before my day is halfway over. I have tried only taking half my pill by separating it and I still have the same affect. I am miserable and the people in my life can tell. I'm constantly rolling my eyes or squinting to relieve the "dry eye" feeling but it just makes me look weird and doesn't really help. Here a...

AdderallXR and slowed growth

Has anyones child stopped growing on AdderallXR. My son was always tall for his age and because of the decrease in appetite he seems to be slowing in growth. Our md just checks his weight not his height ## Yes, my son has only grown 1/8 of an inch in the last six months on Adderall XR. We have been referred to a pediatric endocrinologist. He is almost 8 yrs. and has been on Adderall XR for 2 1/2yrs. ## My son stopped growing as well. He has been off for 3 months and grown and inch. Our pediatrician says it will take approx. 6 months to start growing again. We are now on intuniv. ## There are many other anecdotal reports that state this has occurred, and the child usually had to switch to a different medication. The FDA also warns that these medications carry the risk of being habit form...

Adderall XR & Zegerid

Taking the two together has made a difference in the longevity of the Adderall. My Doctor informed me that Zegerid OTC would enhance the effects of the Adderall and also help in the medication lasting longer and I've tried it, it's true, it does help tremendously. Zegerid is an acid reducer that is available OTC. ## Any acid reducer should help. Amphetamine are basic and less acidic digestive system increases absorption. Although I think Adderall is something on the order of 75% bioavailable typically. If the acid reducer also increases urine ph, making it less acidic, more is reabsorbed and less is excreted. And anything that can increase urine or gastric ph will have the opposite effect. Which can come in handy for someone who is still a little stimulated and can't sleep. ...

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! ## In case someone e...

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...

Speed White Cross

What was the main active ingredient in the pills that were known as speed or white cross during the 70's and 80's? They were small white tablets with a cross or X scored on one side ## Speed typically contained Amphetamines, a stimulant. There are still people today that use and they have found their niche in the prescription drug market to treat conditions such as ADHD, Narcolepsy and Shift Work Disorder. The most commonly used one is Adderall. ## Main ingredient I think is ephedrine and it is controlled in the United States. ## How many mg of adderall would compare to 80's white cross? ## Are these types of ephedrine pills still available with a prescription? ## in the 70's probably a racmic close to adderall. probably dl-ampmine. otherwise ephedra. ## So they still se...

sun pharma generic adderall

My usual generic Adderall 10mg pill is usually a round blue pill. It's manufactured usually by Aurobindo and sometimes the pharmacy will give me one manufactured by IMPA(I'm assuming it's an abbreviation). This time, I was given a round light green pill with the numbers 443 and what looks like a smushed letters MP on it. The manufacturer is Sunpharma. Is this safe? I had some unrelated stomach issues last year and I'm concerned about side effects of this pill since other dosages of this manufacturers generic Adderall has given people bad side effects. My pharmacy isn't really addressing my concerns. Any info would be great. ## Hi Maggie, I am interested myself. I know a guy who says they are good. But everyone is different. ## Sun Pharmaceuticals does list this as co...

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 script and he said no. I can't take adderall because of the irritability at night. And nothing else works. This drug worked for me. Why can't I get a dr to give it to me? I am in Orange County, CA. Can anyone point me in the right direction? ## I have ADHD and have tried everything from Stratera to Vyvance & Adderall. Adderall makes me sleepy & groggy.

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 ...

Aurolife Adderall

I got my prescription filled today for Adderall 15 mg and Aurolife was the generic they used because they were out of their normal one. I have taken Adderall for years & even gone down in dosage with no problems but today after of 2 hours of waiting for the pill to work I took another. I can't tell I've taken anything. I've called the pharmacy twice about this plus a separate matter(a mistake they made in submitting to insurance) and questioned the pharmacist about this drug. He gave me the excuse that if I was used to a different brand this may not work as well at first. I don't buy it. This is an amphetamine and it should work if it's a quality medication. I have asked them to put in my chart to NEVER despense this brand for me again. I will go elsewhere to get...

Round bluish white pill K 101

Yes, I take Methylphenidate 10mg, but the pharmacy gave me a generic for it and this is the first time I have used this one. The pill is light blue almost white in color, scored and has a "K" on top and a # "101" on the bottom. I can't seem to find any info on this pill. The other problem is it kind of makes me sleepy, so it has a reverse effect? Can you identify this pill for me? Thank you. ## Hi TJ, Sorry to hear about the pill making you sleepy. In many cases, the effects of various medications have been known to backfire. Maybe your body is still acclimating to the different fillers? A round pale green pill imprinted with K over 101 (separated by a scoreline) on one side and blank on the other is reportedly identified as Methylphenidate Hydrochloride 10 mg. NDC: ...

Anyone try Rhodes generic Adderall?

I've tried and used Teva/Barr, Lannett, Core pharma, AURO (worst imo), and now just got Rhodes. Not sure if RHODES is making me spacey, sleepy, anxious and low energy, bloated, headache. All are often indications that the active ingredients are meh. There are so many manufacturers out nowadays, it's a revolving door and it's adding to the already difficult challenges many people have experienced since the pandemic. Lordy. Rhodes? Anyone? ## How are you doing taking the product from Rhodes, now? Has there been any change? The FDA considers all generic medications to be therapeutically equivalent.

mp 447 yellow round

Are these tablets adderall, and are they a good brand? ## Anyone tried the yellow MP 447 30 mg generic adderall? These were just dispensed for my usual prescription. NDC 57664-647. Inactive ingredients: - Crospovidone - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Povidones - Starch, Corn - D&C Yellow No. 10 ## Even if someone does report their experience with these as being good, it doesn't necessarily mean that you'll end up having the same reaction. We all react/respond differently to the same meds, including the various binders and fillers in each tablet's composition. So my suggestion would be to try it for yourself if you want an authentic opinion. You can always ask your prescribing doctor to list this specific manufacturer's version of amphetamine/dextr...
