Adderall Overview

Adderall,[note 1] Adderall XR (Extended Release), and Mydayis are combination drugs containing four salts of the two enantiomers of amphetamine, a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant of the phenethylamine class. Adderall is used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. It is also used as an athletic performance enhancer and cognitive enhancer, and recreationally as an aphrodisiac and euphoriant. By salt content, the active ingredi...

Another adderall shortage what the hell

I am in Massachusetts and another adderall shortage, so far it's the 30mg. Manufacturer will not give my pharmacy a date that they can supply. How is a shortage possible, I tried every other drug out there and only adderall works, if I don't take it I cant function at work and will end up loosing my job. ## I am very sorry about the problem you're having. Have you had any luck finding it, yet? Unfortunately, shortages occur almost every year. Each manufacturer is assigned an allotment by the DEA, which is based on the prior years demand for legitimate prescriptions. Once they hit that manufacturing limit, they have to go through a process to request an adjustment to their allotment, and wait to see if it is approved, before they can start manufacturing, again. It should also...

Difference Between Adderall ER & Adderall XR

Hi, Can someone please educate me on the differences between Adderall ER as opposed to Adderall XR? I had no idea there was an ER as well as an XR until yesterday. ## There is no difference. XR stands for extended release, and so does ER. The terms are used interchangeably. ## Ok, but they are in fact two separate medications. I did not know this until yesterday. ## While you may be seeing two different medications, due to them being different doses, or being manufactured by different companies, at heart, just as Sean said, they are still the same time released formulation of Adderall (mixed Amphetamine salts). There are several abbreviations that can be used on time released prescription medications, along with XR and ER, you may also see SR, CR, TR, and others. However, they all mean ...

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...

2019 "national wide shortage adderall 20mg"

I'm going to my doctor Tomorrow to tell him I can't get my adderall 20mg filled anywhere in our are. I have called every day pharmacy within 20 miles, I'm told goodluck. I don't know what he will give me and I don't really know what to except.. any FEEDBACK would have great. I have taken vyvanse for a short time a while back the only reason I stopped is my co-pay on insurance was high..oh I'm not sure but I'm calling Walgreens Tomorrow to see if they have 10mg or 30mg..a week ago I was told only one pharmacy did have the 10s they said it was basically all the adderall ir.. thanks for you time.. I just don't know much about the ADHD medications ## Do you take the extended release or IR? I’ve been taking the 20mg IR for several years and found Walgree...

New Generic 30 Mg Adderall Xr (all orange w/ R 3061 on them) Not As Effective

please share your experience with this never seen before, less effective drug that two different pharmacy's have given to me in last two months. they make me fall asleep! ## Hi shaun, When you switch brand names or manufacturers, the drug itself doesn't change, but rather the binders or fillers that they put with it. Certain "inactive" ingredients that may or may not be present in each brand, are actually detrimental to how the drug is metabolized and used by your body. Because everyone is different, your body may respond favorably with one medication and not the other (even if they're both Adderall Xr), due to how you feel or based on whatever side effects present themselves. Although I haven't taken this medication, I can say that they probably have an array of...

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...

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 ...

Teva Adderall

I was taking adderall 10 mg by mouth 3 times a day. Manufactured by Teva. I can't find it at local pharmacy. Anyone know how I can get my medication? ## Hi Shery, I went onto Teva's manufacturer webpage and found a photo of their 10mg Adderall pill (just scroll down a bit): I'm thinking you can simply email the company (using the contact link on their website) and ask them about the pill's availability in your area. Generally, if it is not available, the pharmacy can have it shipped there for your prescription or they can provide you with a different brand/generic of the same drug. Studies show that there are no differences in the quality or effectiveness of generic drugs vs brand name drugs. For more info on this comparison, you can visit the link below: Please post bac...

Aurobindo vs sandoz Adderall

Sandoz version of generic Adderall 20mg is the same garbage Adderall generic Aurobindo. I mean exactly the same pill! They stamp a different name on the outside of the bottle, but its all made at that awful Aurobindo cheap/ fake pharmaceutical company, These pharmaceutical companies think they are so smart! You can put whatever name on the outside of the bottle you want... it's still going to be garbage. ## Hello, Christine! How are you? I'm sorry that you are so unhappy with this medication. As to the pills, under law, the U.S. FDA requires every company to use a unique imprint to enable identification of manufactured products in case of emergency. Thus, the imprints are not repeated from one company to another. However, the manufacturer listed on the label by your pharmacy cou...

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...
