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...

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 ...

Trying to find a doctor for Adderall in Port Charlotte Fl

I have a traumatic brain injury and secondary ADHD because of it. I'm looking for a doctor in the port Charlotte area who will perscribe me 2 /30mg XR Adderall with 2 /20mg IR Adderall. My current pyschriatirist is making it hard for me to and because of my cognitive deficits high dose stimulants seem to be the only thing that helps me fight back against all the fatigue and lack of productivity I experience due to my brain injury. I don't like having to argue or lie about how much taking the Adderall at this level has benefited my quality of life. I do know one former doctor in Port Charlotte that may be able to help me but it anyone has any idea where I might find the right doctor to understand my circumstances and work with me on this stimulant regiment I'd appreciate your...

Current Adderall generic manufacturers for June 2017?

Tomorrow I should be filling a script for 30 mg Adderall IR tablets, but I am nervous about getting stuck with a subpar generic. What are the current generic manufacturers as of this month? My only option with my insurance is to fill at Rite Aid or CVS - which generic do they commonly carry? I appreciate your help! ## Spoke with corepharma this morning. They no longer manufacture amphetamine salts. Limited to Sandoz, barr/teva, and a few others now. I was just switched to Aurobindo. IT IS AWFUL. It feels narcotic, makes my add worse, and is inconsistent at best in strength. ## The worst are corepharma's bright pink round pills. CVS buys them at the cheapest rate. Mylan aren't bad with their peach round MA20, but most swear by Sandoz and Barr/teva. ## Being that we all react/resp...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Which generic Adderall does CVS usually carry?

Does anyone know which generic manufacturer CVS commonly has in stock for both IR and XR Adderall (Amphetamine Salts)? I know they used to carry Mylan for the IR and it's awful. They also used to carry Actavis for the XR which is also terrible, but I don't have many pharmacy choices with my insurance.. and I'm nervous that I'm going to get stuck with Actavis/Mylan... if anyone has any info I'd appreciate it. I live in RI btw. Thank you! ## Different locations carry different manufacturers, brands and generics (and they are always subject to change). The only way to find out what a specific location carries is to go in person as if you are filling your prescription. You can always choose to not accept what they offer you and go somewhere else. After-all it's your ...

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 ...

Can U Take Adderall And Phentermine Together

I have taken 20mg of adderall and would now like to take a 37mg phentermine. Is this ok? ## It generally isn't advisable, due to the fact that they are both stimulants, so combining them can result in elevated blood pressure and heart rate, which may put you at risk of a heart attach or stroke. Learn more Adderall details here. Learn more Phentermine details here. Are there any other comments or questions? ## 20 mg of adderall should give you intense effects if you are not a daily prescription user. If you are trying to increase the stimulant effect I would suggest against the phentermine and trying taking tums or some form of bicarbonate 30-60 mins prior to adderall to increase absorption. Also, a diet high in acidity (especially soda) will greatly decrease absorption of the drug. ...

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.

octagonal white pill with m in a square on one side and 30 on other side

Please help me figure out what this is. Also, there are 4 score lines around the 30. I was told it is a brand new generic for Adderoll (sp?). I want to know with certainty. Thank you in advance for your help on this! ## Who told you it was a generic for Adderall? I've done some searching, but haven't been able to find a listing for anything matching this description, so far. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. ## The one whom it was prescribed to. They were surprised at the new shape, color, etc as well & said they asked the pharmacist about it when they picked it up. The pharmacist said they, too, hadn't seen the new medication form, but stated they researched it themselves & stated it was a new manufacturer of the generic for Adder...

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...

Thank you in advance for your help on this! ## Just picked up my script for Adderall and was shocked cause I have never seen them before too.

These ones in particular are manufactured by Mallinckrodt, but I don't know exactly how long they've been on the market for. Another brief description of their image that I'm seeing is that these are eight-sided pills with an "M" on side in a box, and a "30" on the other side intersected between four ...

Adderall Hair Test

So I took 10 mg of adderall on two separate back to back weekends in 5 mg doses over a month ago and had a haircut the following weekend. I potentially have a hair test coming in the next week or two. It's a pre-employment screen for a position I was offered through a staffing agency so it could be any of the tests. I also have a haircut scheduled for this week (wedding this weekend). If I show up and find out it's a hair test will I hit the cutoff for a positive test or will the concentration be below the 300pg/ml or whatever the cutoff is? ## A hair drug test is meant to show consistent use over time. A 1.5 inch sample, cut at the scalp line, will go back 90 days. My best guess is that you will be negative as that amount is not enough to show up on a Hair 5 Drug Panel test. Bu...

Managing Withdrawal Symptoms from Adderall XR

I have taken 40mg of Adderall XR (20 mgx2) for over five years. Once in the past i had to stop taking the Adderall abruptly and the withdrawal was terrible. From everything i heard and was told it wasnt supposed to be bad. I was stuck in bed for days. No matter how much i slept i was exhausted. Eventually Aderall was restarted and things went back to normal. However, now a couple of years later during a very stressful week i made the mistake of abusing my prescription. I took half a months worth the first week. Just going back to my normal dose after abusing for one week, im experience withdrawal symptoms. Fatigue, depression. Now i will only have enough pills to take my normal 2xday for some of the month the rest of the month i will only be able to take 1 pill.i have important thhings ...

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 by Teva dp 20

I would like some input on Adderall 20 mg Instant Release. I have been through four manufacturers. I was on Activist and lots of people did not like it, however it worked for me. It had its fault but in the end it was recalled. Sometime during that period Teva bought out Activist. Since then I haven't been able to get an instant release to work without bad side effects. Then I was told there was a Name Brand being sold by Teva. I was able to get this with pill logo dp 20. I took only ten milligrams and my heart was racing out of control. I called the F D A and they advised me that the pill with imprint dp 20 was a generic. What I would like to know is how can it be Name Brand when through research shows after Shire discontinued AD 20 there was no other name brand. I have looked up N...

Generic Adderall U31 Peach

Just wondered if anyone else has gotten a prescription filled with a round peach pill imprint U 31 on one side, and quarter score on the other ## Yes I got that generic yesterday ## @peter, Just to confirm, a round orange/peach colored pill marked with U 31 is in fact identified as a 30mg generic Amphetamine + Dextroamphetamine tablet. The manufacturer is listed as Aurolife Pharmaceuticals, based in New Jersey. I haven't tried them personally, but did come across a few posts on here stating that they weren't nearly as good as some of the other versions on the market. However, if you're not used to using other brands/generics, I'm not sure if you'd even notice any significant differences at all. I hope this info helps! ## They're horrible. I typically don't no...
