Today I picked up my 20mg x 2 daily adderall IR Instead of my usual adderall made by teva brand i was given a new type that I have never had before..it's supposedly a newer generic version from Lannett pharmaceuticals. It looks just like teva accept it's a lighter shade of peach color and it doesn't have that sweet flavor. It's more chalky like..its early evening and I decided to try one two hours have gone by and still nothing. Humm my question is has anyone else had the opportunity to try these newer version of adderall 20mg from Lannett pharmaceuticals?. I will come back in a hour or so and give an update..oh i read a different blogpost and have read that some actually liked it better than teva brand but wished for the sweet taste but they claimed to like it so let's see what others have to say thx for your opinion.

I tried the 10mg and thought it was one of the few that was quite good. I actually take dextroamphetamine Sulfate 10mg IR because the generic Adderall has way too much inconsistency with many generics on the market. I thought I'd switch it up. 10mg Adderall 1x, 10mg Dex 2x. Then ... It went back to Teva, which is my preferred brand and Teva Adderall had the crash, Lannett was smooth. These meds have binders that effect their break down and bio availability etc. It's so individual to the person, but I can agree with what ppl say about Aurobindo. The WORST imo.

Lannett made me physically sick. I was exhausted, nauseous, dizzy. Zero therapeutic effect. Avoid this at all costs.

Re: Somegirlinafog (# 2)

I felt the same way while taking this brand. It must be the inactive ingredients in the brand. So far this is the only brand Walgreens has had.no where can I find teva brand adderall 20mg ir in my area. Do you know what pharmacy might carry the teva brand at?

Re: Somegirlinafog (# 2)

I maintain my position that they're fine by me. Aurobindo is crap IMHO but Lannett has been fine. I think it depends what you're accustomed to. I don't think they're crap at all.

Re: Rcma (# 1)

I made the pharmacy list Aurobindo meds as an allergy because everything they make is crap. Their zofran didn’t work but gave me weird muscle spasms. Their adderall is the worst though. Like No doze or crossroads from the 80s/90s.

AUROBINDO IS A SHAMEFUL MIDDLE FINGER TO FDA STANDARDS.

ULTIMATELY I ALWAYS GO Back to Teva/Barr Dextroamphetamine Sulfate IR tabs.... The Adderall generic market place has become like Las Vegas. Ya never win

Re: Rcma (# 6)

Please fill out a Medwatch report form on the FDA website. People need to complain in huge numbers. Also tell the pharmacy! This needs to become a complaint they have heard before, so they will also speak up.

Anyone that believes the BS that this is equivalent is a moron. Obviously you wouldn’t have a patent for a product if it was “the exact same thing “ Discontinued in 2019 , the solution from Teva for ADHD has been Diluted to garbage pharmaceutical “Linnett”. As a paying adult you have the right not to be lied to and insulted with a substitution.

Re: Somegirlinafog (# 2)

Terrible product . Nausea , , swelling , depression, and delayed reaction

Patient asked the pharmaceutical tech if they put Teva in the bag they replied yes. We get home to take the medication and it’s Lynette. The pharmacist refuses to validate her techs error. Therefore leaving the patient without medication for 30 days. Negligence and error.

Re: Jess (# 8)

Calling people morons isn't constructive. Patents have nothing to do with this. According to the FDA a generic has bioequivalence if it is 80-120% the potency of the name brand. So a generic can have 40% less active ingredients and still be called bioequivalent, as defined by FDA. TEVA was the best, but check out the FDA website and you'll see that they voluntarily recalled lots of medication due to production and consistencies. They had a virtual monopoly on the market and generic contracts and their stock dropped from $70 per share down to $19 at one point and they became a very troubled company with many class action suits. The bottom line is that when 80 to 120% of the brand name is the standard set by the FDA then loading it up with 20% more will definitely develop customer loyalty but at any point they could drop it down to 80 and still be within the FDA standards. That's almost half a potency, a 40% drop. Any generic company can do this and it's a pretty good assumption that most will go for the 80 so overall one can assume that since generic manufacturers have multiplied there's been an overall 20% drop and active ingredient makeup. Much of this drug can be urinated out and never actually used in the bloodstream as it is extremely sensitive to alkaline and acidic conditions. If you are saliva and urine are acidic it is likely that a large percent of the medication you're taking is not being utilized and is being flushed down the toilet. Acidic conditions will also drastically slow the metabolism of the medication. If you're more alkaline and your pH lila and urine then you will process it more quickly and a larger percentage will be utilized rather than lost in urine.

The symptoms of too much Adderall are different for everybody and can range from palpitations and perspiration to headache dizziness and exhaustion.. too little will generally lead to fogginess exhaustion inability to function. If you were taught how to use the medication properly by your doctor then you know that you can add 5 mg to find optimal dosage. If you take 20 mg then 25% more is 25mg. I'm not a doctor but I can tell you that something may feel like complete crap but until you add 5 mg or more you don't know if it is potent as compared to Teva until you find a dosage that works for you. That sugary taste will affect the digestion and there will be a more rapid uptake in the active ingredients and as most people know the medication dissolves quite quickly. Tablets that dissolve quite slowly will take longer to break down and will not give that threshold breakout that makes you feel like it's working. Binders and fillers are also different among manufacturers and cheap binders could potentially prevent a medication from being dissolved and utilized properly by your particular digestive chemistry. I'm not a doctor but try crushing it up... Try taking it with an antacid. Most people on these farmers will acknowledge that any brand is not even close to what it was 10 years ago. The trick is to either log on to your CVS or Walgreens account and look at the NDC number before you even pick it up because the NDC number will tell you which manufacturer is being stocked. Or ask the pharmacist what the NDC number is on the bottle or look at the NDC number on the back before you pay and then refuse the medication if it's a s****y brand. Pharmacists and pharmacies at Walgreens and CVS no longer have the option to request generic brands... That option has been removed from their ordering system. Their attitude is they take whatever the supplier delivers on the supplier will always be delivering the cheapest generic available which will generally be crap like KVK Tech. Again I am okay with Lanett because my main medication was dextroamphetamine sulfate, And I never got accustomed to generic Teva Adderall but I do remember it being quite potent. I can take 50% more Lannett and not even feel jittery. But it is better than nothing or feeling outright nauseated.

As for all of you who are talking about headaches and other symptoms I would suggest looking up Adderall withdrawal symptoms and if what you're experiencing is Adderall withdrawal then the pill isn't making you sick It's the drop in serum amphetamine that's make you sick due to less active ingredient in the pill or the pills slower metabolic processing. I've often thought of just going on Vyvanse because it's still on patent for a while and behold generic issue is removed because vegetarian issue is getting worse not better. https:/­/­adhdrollercoaster.org/­adhd-medications/­can-acidic-foods-affect-stimulant-medications-for-adhd/­

Re: Rcma (# 10)

Thank you for giving me a reason to laugh today . Up to 40% different yet it’s exactly the same ? I’m well aware of the ratio . Ignorance has nothing to do with the patent either .

Re: Jessika (# 11)

No, not exactly the same. Again, I am attempting to explain that the FDA created a misleading word called Bioequivalence. They allow 20+/-% from the Brand name. I'm in the same miserable boat as everyone else. It's an absurd regulation however the FDA will do nothing if the medication is within that < or > 20%. It's criminal, but true. Hence, the BEST bet for anyone stuck w/a crappy generic is to recalibrate your dosage for that generic. 10mg of Teva is probably like 7 Lanett. Everyone says "it sucks" but if they took 15mg they may feel fine. Look, if you're used to a 6cyl BMW and the car rental company says Luxury SUV BMW or equivalent, you may end up with a Lincoln or a Cadillac. No promises. If you accept the vehicle then your choice is either to complain constantly about how the BMW is better or just pump the gas harder to get the speed you want. Duh. after 12 years I'm probably changing to Vyvanse because I'm sick of this crap on the market but I'm just telling you like it is. TEVA is not even available for order by the largest distributors such as McKesson and cardinal. Amerisourcebergen may have it or not. Either way pharmacists have told me that Teva costs them more money than the insurance will actually pay. And the pharmacy is not going to lose money on the prescription so they'll either offer it to you for cash or they'll accept your insurance for the crap that costs significantly less. Mallinkrodt, Teva are way more expensive than AURO or Lannett. If you're willing to pay cash I'm sure you'll find somebody who will carry the more expensive medication but don't count on a large chain pharmacy dispensing any medication that costs more than the insurance reimbursement. I'm glad that you got a laugh because you sure do sound like somebody who needs one. Are you a Patent Lawyer? Have you studied parents? When any product comes off patent and you can buy Walmart brand or suave brand it will say in the corner compared to Neutrogena but it's not guaranteeing you that it's going to offer the same exact Neutrogena. However, by law they can say it is equivalent. Equivalent does not mean the same. I am as disgruntled and disgusted is everybody else but I'm hoping that people understand the game that's being played and the joke is ultimately on us but this is the joke the FDA and the pharmaceutical companies and the insurance companies have created. Call people morons as long as you want but until you understand the nature of generic pharmaceutical manufacturers and the three largest wholesale distributors and the three largest pharmacy benefit managers then you'll never understand who's controlling the medication dispensing and destroying in the United States. If you want to be smart then get a prior authorization for an on patent medication and give up trying to control the generic market because it's never going to happen unless you're a lobbyist with millions of dollars and lots of influence in Washington DC.
