I HAVE BEEN TAKING GENERIC ADDERALL which has always been called amphetamine salts. My last script instead of saying amphetamine salts substituted for adderall it says amphetamine salts substituted for amphetamine salt combo? What's this mean?

Hello, Mary! How are you?

It all means the same thing, just different ways of stating it.

Adderall actually contains Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine, which is usually listed as mixed Amphetamine salts, so what you've seen are just different variations of the drug name.

This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, headache. dizziness, insomnia, nervousness and anorexia.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hello, Maria! How are you?

There is no instant release formulation, there are only regular release and time released formulations.

Does the prescription list anything on it, such as ER, XR, SR or something similar?

If so, they are time released, if not, they are regular release.

What are the markings on them? That's another way I can double check for you.

You need to get some sleep. I know the feeling I have found myself awake at 3am cleaning my house. I would suggest that you take your meds earlier in the day if possible. Lately I haven't been getting that 'no sleep' feeling and am wondering if they are giving me some sort of sugar pill that has no amphet. in it.

Lack of sleep is deleterious. Take a anxiolytic HS. CLONAZEPAM IS USEFUL.

IMPORTANT: My cleaning lady helped herself to about #30 Ct. of my 20Mg. mixed amphetamine combos. I keep my firearms in a vault. I will now keep them in my safe.One neighbor, now deceased pilfered #200 Ct. of my D amphetamines. Do keep them locked up and bolted and welded the vaults down. KEEP YOUR MEDS locked.

Safeguarding your controlled Rx's. It's vitally important to keep your medicine in a locked container. You are responsible for any mishaps or overdoses that occur during your medicine possession in home or elsewhere. Do not carry medicine in your car as a rule. DUI'S occur for driving on any medicine. DUI checkpoints or DRIVERS LICENSE CHECKPOINTS ARE ONE AND THE SAME.

Maria,

Unless its in a capsule, adderrall or any of its generic counterparts, from various manufacturers is "IR". (Adderrall is only available in two preparations: Adderrall and Adderrall XR

Adderrall XR comes strictly in a capsule formulation containing two types of beads that dissolve at different rates to release the drug twice. Adderrall XR is manufactured by Shire. There is only one "generic" XR formulation on the market- also produced by Shire (its the brand drug in different colored capsules). Most insurance formularies that cover Adderrall XR will not cover the XR generic.

Finally, generic Adderrall is expensive; You can finance many new cars for less than you'd pay for Adderrall XR. Hope this helps.

Well first of all ..your getting 10 mg IR tablets. Xr is always in a capsule. Second...you are clearly abusing them if you took a ten mg tablet it would never keep you up for 20 hours ...it has a 3 hour half life lol .. so u must have taken more than 30.mg if you've been up for 20+ hours I'm a pharmacist...and a biochemical engineer, with a PhD in pharmaceutical botany as well as a PhD in mycology/ drug synthesis. If you actually had ADHD this drug would have the complete opposite effect. .it would most certainly not keep you awake for 20+ hours especially at 10 mg. And if a doctor intended you for you to take more than 10 mg they would have given you a higher mg tablet to save money for all parties involved. So I can promise you that you are clearly either abusing this medication , it is not prescribed to you or both.

Actually there is an instant release, hence adderall IR (instant release) means all released at the same time versus through out a specific time frame....

@Chevymama,
Having a support system in place is best. It would be good if you had a reliable family member or friend who is willing to learn about your medication and withdrawal. It is extremely important that you set the pace for your taper and not feel rushed to complete it or have anyone pressure you into weaning off quicker than you’re comfortable with. You can do it.
There are many factors that play into this. An individuals personal biology, polypharmacy, ect.
Would you agree?

Chevymama, I'm sorry, lol what I posted was to the wrong reply you made.
I was saying the effects could be based on personal biology, renal liver and kidney health, possibly excess adipose tissue, paradoxical effect, misdiagnosis, polypharmacy, ect.

Would you agree?

I have narcolepsy. I was on 400 mg of Provigil and 80 mg of ritilin a day. The ritilin had zero effect in keeping me awake but the Provigil provided clarity of thinking while I was awake.

I was then switched over to Adderrall instant release. The adderrall was first tried without the Provigil but that hazy brain was present.
The Provigil was reinstated. The first two months were great, I felt normal again. I wasn't sleeping my life away. Over two or three months I was progressively increased to a dose of 20 mg instant release Adderrall. I told my doctor I was sleeping right through it.

I do not have ADHD.

Any thoughts?
