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 ...

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. RECALLING FIRM Actavis Elizabeth LLC, Elizabeth, NJ ## Wow! I wondered why my pills were different when I got them filled on Mar. 20, 2016!!! The efficacy of the Teva brand generic Adderall has been degrading for some time. I have felt they were no good for months. I can take one and go right to sleep. And I haven't been feeling well. Just an overall feeling of malaise. Thank you for posting this. Why weren't we told by the ...

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...

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...

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!

400 mg of adderall

I took over 400mg adderall within one hour. I crushed & ate all but 120mg Iputp in a syringe and did it rectally. Any suggestions... ## Go to the hospital.....why would you take so much in such a short period if time? ## Hello Myra, You absolutely should go to the ER and ensure that you are ok, not only are you taking a rather large dose but to administer it in a way that is not intended is absolutely dangerous. I sincerely hope that you are ok and that this message doesn't find you too late. Please be safe.

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...

Pick up Adderall refill early

I received my 1st prescription of Adderall just last week and I've lost them! I had a doctor's appointment today and he wrote me another script that I'm assuming is for next month. I didn't dare to tell doctor that I lost my meds. I live in Maine. Can I fill this new script at a different pharmacy without using my insurance this time? ## Hello IRD, I'll be transparent in telling you that it's in your best interest to come clean and tell your doctor what happened. If they discover that you are trying to get your next script filled already it could potentially cause you problems down the line as they might believe that since you didn't tell them anything and now you're trying to get another script filled it starts to look like you're trying to misuse th...

I've been getting the orange football shaped ones, barr, before this fill. So far I haven't had any issues but we will see. ## Hello Melissa, According to the NIH these two pills do contain the same active ingredients but have no similarities between the inactive ingredients.

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 ...

Sandoz adderall 2x a day.

Hello I take adderall ir Generic 10mg x2 a day, I notice that it works great in the morning for 3 hours, I will take my 2nd dose and I do not feel anything really. I have no crash and very little symptoms side effects, I am sure to drink a lot of water, I get enough rest, but the 2nd dose dose not help. What am I doing wrong ## Hi JJ, How long have you been taking Adderall by Sandoz or Adderall in general? Has this happened with any other manufacturer's version of Adderall? Sometimes stimulants can backfire when our adrenal glands have worn themselves out. However, if you're getting enough rest, then I suppose this can be ruled out? My theory is that it may not be you at all and simply the Sandoz version of Adderall and one or more of its fillers causing this inert response. ## ...

Aurobindo vs Sandoz Adderall and chronic pain

Has anyone had any issues with aurobindo causing chronic pain, this all started when I was taking vyvanse 2 years ago then switching to aurobindo, I had lower back pain numbness, but when I stopped taking my adhd meds the pain went away. I am being switched to Sandoz medication 10mg tomorrow, can someone give me any reference to this type of generic? ## YES!!!! Doesn't work like Teva. Been on this med most my life! Started using pharmacy at Dr office and they use Aurobindo. Started having extreme back pain, leg pain, foot pain all right side. Migraines, falling asleep. I quit taking for 30 days. All symptoms stopped. I am going to speak to my dr. I would stay away from it at all costs. Walgreens still uses Teva. i have used them forever and am going back. Good luck. .God Bless. Plea...

CorePharma generic adderall availability in Phoenix az

Will any pharmacy order special brands? I need CorePharma's generic adderall. Should I try vyvanse instead if I can't get it? I live in Phoenix, Az. ## Rite Aids have Corepharma. It is currently the best Adderall generic. ## @Bp, Re: "Should I try vyvanse instead if I can't get it?" Both Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate) and Adderall (amphetamine + dextroamphetamine) are reportedly Central Nervous System stimulants and should have similar effects in that regard. So my guess is that you probably can't go wrong if you've never tried one or the other before, since trial and error is the only proven way to know what works best for you. After spending some amount of time on Adderall it may be that you wish to try Vyvanse (or vise versa) anyways due to an incre...

Adderall 30mg XR by Shire

Does anyone know the color of the beads that are instant release in the Shire 30 mg. I am trying to find this out because the long acting beads stay active to long preventing sleep and the Shire Brand is the only decent Adderall. I believe the two colors are white and a orange lookin beige. It would be pain staking to separate them but worth getting the 15 mg IR out of the 30. ## It would actually be much easier and safer to ask your doctor to prescribe the regular release formulation. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia and anorexia. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## My physician has written several prescriptions of instant release given me 3 at a time to see how...

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...

Doctor for Adderall

I'm trying to find a doctor or therapist in my area who can help me with my symptoms for adderall diagnoses. I am located in Greenville, Alabama 36037, a mother of four kids and really need someone to help. Thank you ## Hello, Pepper! How are you? Adderall is not a diagnosis, it is a medication. The FDA classifies it as a stimulant that is used to treat conditions, such as ADHD, narcolepsy and shift-work sleep disorder, thus for it to be appropriate, a doctor would need to diagnose you with one of those conditions. It carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, insomnia, weight loss and anorexia. Since it is a controlled substance, you aren't going to be able to just call around to doctors and ask them to ...

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...
