Did Mallinckrodt Generic Adderall Change? (strong Taste And Smell) (Top voted first)

beep Says:

I have been taking Adderall for many years and I've never noticed a smell or taste. However, my most recent Rx (same generic manufacturer as normal, Mallinckrodt) has a *very* strong smell, like a multi-vitamin, and terribly disgusting taste. I even took it back into the pharmacy to make sure I wasn't losing my mind, she agreed but couldn't figure out why. They are the white, Dextroamp-Amphetamin 15 mg tab. Has anyone else had this issue?

I am not sure because I refuse to take that one. They’re SUPER weak compared to Teva.

Can you elaborate because I noticed that 20s and for the record I'm prescribed currently Vyvanse but sometimes switch back to Adderall and the 20s seem to work better than the 30s sometimes which makes no sense but I noticed the 20s seem to be the sweet ones in the 30s seem to be more bitter and less effective I wonder if the Dexter inside of me to amphetamine ratio is different especially the l-amphetamine

Probably changed the binding material. Yes this has happened to me with the original Wellbutrin. A very long time ago they actually added a desiccant to the container but people started to eat the plastic silica packet. They actually had to put a warning label, ultimately they chose to coat the tablets. This was like 20 years ago but it does happen. Try contacting the manufacturer.

Yes the isomers are probably not accurate. They are not going to waste time separating them.close is close enough.

I don’t know, I don’t take that brand because they are trash. I am really sensitive to medication, sometimes I break my Adderall and a half and take two smaller doses instead of one larger does. That particular kind I have to take 50% more than the dose I am told it take to even feel it where is all the other ones I break it in half and it’s fine. Hopefully they changed it made it actually real medication because I don’t think it was before
