white square pill 10 on one side m other

Is this pill for add patients or adhd patients. I was taking the small blue pill with 10 on it. It yave me energy an the pharmasit gave me the white square one this time cause he didnt have the other an it makes me sleepy tired an cant concentrait. What can i do!!!! ## I also notice a difference. Not as effective, shorter acting, and since you said it; there is a degree of being tired. Perhaps this formula contains less active ingredient. The pharmaceutical industry has a margin of error. +/- differential of 40% Meaning you may get 8 mg to 12 mg depending on the manufacture But in all honesty these things remind me of the shape with the same logo that was used following a car accident a long time ago. Maybe it truly is sedative and the pharmaceutical distributor messed up big time?? ## ...

Dextroamphetamine Price

Ive taken Dexadrine tabs for a couple years. The price is now too much for me too afford. No inssurance. My Dr. gave me Rittalin but it is NOT as effective as Dexadrine. Any suggestions? ## Hi Brun, If you don't mind me asking, were you using the Dexadrine for ADHD? If so there are actually lots of natural/homeopathic alternatives to medications like Dexadrine and Ritalin. I'll link you to a few pages that offer more information on natural alternatives. :) hellolife.net/synaptol/natural%20alternatives%20to%20adhd livestrong.com/article/27959-natural-alternatives-ritalin/ ehow.com/list_5461293_natural-alternatives-ritalin.html I hope this helps! ## Go to Walgreens. Pay $20.00 /yr for Walgreens Pharma card. You will pay much much less with the card. ## Hi Brun, By the year 2010, G...

10 mg Dextroamphetamine (Zenzedi/Wilshire) drama

well, I went off Mallinckrodt after being back on that for awhile at 80 mg and I had to go on the hunt again. Well there is a brand called Zenzedi that has the same 10 mg tablet as wilshire and i find those to last a little longer... not as much mentally hardcore in the focus area but at least the urge to pig out hits every 3.5-4 hours vs 2... They all beat the rest away (vyvanse, dex spansule, adderall, ritalin....) Now they need to go to a higher dose because 180-270 pills depending on the brand per month is nuts. And I respect that long acting generation and that it helps but don't think all of us on them are crackheads. Speaking of which, I used to get the brand name 5 mg ones 420 per month during the adderall boom and they were $37 at my pharmacy.... lay off the prices. These a...

dextroamphetamine and medicare

My mother was told that her doctor could no longer prescribe the dextroamphetamine that she has been taking, at minimum dose, for oer 50 years. She takes it for ADHD and narcolepsy. Her doctor tells her that it is no longer legal to "provide" it for her because congress has made it illegal to "provide" to any medicaid patient for any reason. Can someone help me follow this up? If the story she is telling me is true, I need to write my congressman to protest. Since when does the Federal government have the right to interfere in our private health care needs - she is not asking them to pay for the medication, she has simply LOST THE RIGHT TO HAVE IT PRESCRIBED TO HER. Is there anyone else out there that thinks this is WRONG?! ## This is not true. I take 2, 10mg dextroamphe...

M inside a square 10 on a round white pill

I have a small, white, round pill marked m inside a square on one side and 10 on the other. Is this Oxycodone? ## This is NOT Oxycodone. If the pill is more like a rounded square or a diamond with an M in a box on one side and 10 on the other, then it is most likely Dextroamphetamine 10 mg (NDC 0406-8959). Inactive Ingredients: - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Povidone - Silicon Dioxide - Stearic Acid Ref: DailyMed

k 66 pink round pill

Is this Dextroamphetamine? It doesn't seem to work like the one I was on before. I have taken this medication for years. I don't know if it's just the manufacturer? ## Yes, this tablet is manufactured by KVK Tech and they list it as containing 10mgs of Dextroamphetamine. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nervousness, nausea, insomnia, headache, and anorexia. If you've been taking it for a long time, your body may have built up a tolerance to it, which means you may need to have your dosage adjusted, or you might need to try a different medication. How many years have you been taking it? ## I've taken dexedrine or dextroamphetamine sulfate for a long time. It's quite an effective drug, in...

Dextroamphetamine ER spansules generic experiences?

Hey all, I take Dex IR for ADHD-C in the afternoons and it works great. I need to find an XR medication to take in the AM that works as well as my PM Dex booster. Pdoc and I have tried Adderall XR (made me fatigued, flat, and surly--I don't think my brain plays well on l-amphetamine) and Vyvanse (GI side effects and felt like a sugar pill--don't think I metabolize it correctly). I'm thinking ER Dextroamphetamine (the spansules) might be the next logical thing to try. Generics are tricky and I know there is no longer a brand name Dexedrine Spansule. So, for those on the generic dextroamphetamine spansules, what generic brand do you use/have tried, and what do you think? Thanks. ## Hello Anhedonia ADHD, It would be wreckless of me or anyone on the internet to recommend a gener...

dextroamphetamine pictures

ROUND PINK 953/10 B ## picturea ## I cannot post a picture, due to copyright reasons, however, I can tell you from the imprint that this is, indeed, 10mgs of Dextroamphetamine, a generic for Dexedrine. This is a stimulant medication. Common side effects may include: nausea, insomnia, decreased appetite and headache. You can read more here: Did you have any other questions? ## Most likely Shire. What I like about Shire is they use less fillers so their pills are small. Been taking Teva/Barr for years, Walgreens mysteriously ran out, after 6 weeks I had to go to Fred Meyers in Oregon, they sold me Shire. All subjective of course - I like Shire a little better then Teva/Barr. ## Just a short memo, (I realize this thread is on average, about eight years old). I have some target specific tho...

dextroamphetamine instant release core 10mg

Has Core Pharmaceuticals improved their product since the year 2009? When I last tried the Core 10mg generic version of Adderall, is was most inconsistent, almost as bad as Ranbaxy, the latter now off the market. Core now has a license to manufacture 5 mg and 10 mg pure dextroamphetamne. Some Rite Aid chain stores in the USA carry this product. Any experiences with anybody on Core C-II stimulants? Core also is a subsidiary of Amedra Pharma, and under Amedra, they also have a fairly new license to make the Dexedrine Spansules in 5mg 10mg and 15 mg at a very high price. I was only interested in I/R tabs. ## Regarding experiences on Core Pharma's dextroamphetamine, Post #2 in the following discussion thread offers their opinion in a comment from 2010: Discuss/HOW-MANY-MG-IS-THE-PINK-RO...
