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 drug. The more I "google" the more I want to stay away from the generic form. Also- almost every pharmacy around has little to no Adderall Brand IR tablets in stock, they only have the generic brands and possibly Adderall brand but only the Extended-Release. My Doctor seems to firmly believe that there is no difference between Adderall XR and Adderall IR, and because she prescribed me the generic form (Amphetamine Salts), she probably doesn't see a difference there either. I don't have the time to ask 10 doctors what they think so if anyone has any information or experiences please share! Thank you!

Re: james bridges (# 662)

Dextroamphetamine (Dexerdrine) is not the same drug as amphetamine salts (Adderall). If your pharmacist did not get the ok from your doctor before substituting, the pharmacist broke the law. But, nothing will come of it.

Be sure and take your bottle with you when you see your doctor next time. Be sure your doctor is aware of the substitution. Are you positive your doctor did not write you a prescription for Dextroamphetamine?

Re: Margarita (# 2)

I've gone through 10+ years of depression including an attempt of suicide. I've been through multiple antidepressants that did not work and were very difficult to stop taking due to side effects. I started taking adderall and my life did a 180. I am now more productive, more responsible, more successful, more caring and compassionate, etc., but maybe this medication has allowed me to be how "god made me". I am now 2 months free of antidepressants after a 6 month struggle to wing myself off and happier than ever.

Margarita, you don't have a clue what you are talking about. You seem to be under a rock or maybe just some hard-core Bible beater who is ignorant to reality; historical and medical data. Please refrain from sharing your opinion if you have no personal experience with the medication discussed in the forum. Feeling as though your opinion is more superior than medical research may just be "how god made you," but I can assure you that feeling is incorrect and I hope that you seek help to find a solution for your ignorance. Best of luck.

Christians make me laugh. They go out of their way to try and claim that Christ's message was one of "peace", but then turn around and spew venom at everyone who doesn't bend a knee to or disagrees with their hate cult.

This Amphetamine + Dextroamphetamine medication doesn't work. They removed the medicine that worked for me for 35 years. In addition, it's very expensive. Just because people abused the drug they took it off the market. Left the rest of us to suffer.
