45 Replies RSS Share
I've noticed that the last three years in a row around this time either at the Adderall generic Sandoz brand is on backorder or suddenly the pills don't have the same affect. So in essence the pharmacy and drug manufacturers I getting paid while patients suffer without the proper medication. Has anyone else had this happen this month? I am taking the Adderall generic 30 milligrams twice a day I feel like I haven't taken anything. ## What are the markings on the one they've provided you with? I'm sorry, but I need this information in order to research more information on it for you. Can you please post back and clarify? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousnes... ...

Adderall manufactured by Teva not working
531 Replies RSS Share
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 ... ...

adderall ir is not working as well as adderall xr
53 Replies RSS Share
I recently switched from adderall xr 30mg to adderall ir 20mg because of the price of the medication. Now im in space and unproductive, moody and sleepy. WHY??? ## The XR was a controlled release medication, the drug is released slowly over hours of time to keep a steady dose in your body. The IR is instant release, so all the medication is released at once and also processed out of your body much faster. Did you doctor approve this switch? ## are you taking the generic form of adderall IR ?.. because even though your doctor and pharmacist says its the same as brand.. trust me its not. i was prescribed strattera when i was first diagnosed with ADD/Depression and it pretty much seemed to magnify the problems i already had.. sleepy.. forgetful/foggy mind.. headaches.. moody .. so i was sw... ...

I have a morphine infusion pump that releases 21.474 mg daily continuous flow plus I can give myself a bolus of 1.50 mg up to 10 x a day making my daily level release of morphine 35.886/day continuous flow. I am so tired all the time. My doctor prescribed D-amphetamine salts XR 25 mg - 2 x/day but because (i've been taking this for a few years at slowly increased doses to get where I am now) they were a generic and did not work I asked him and my insurance company approved the change, he put me on 20 MG IR 2x/day brand name by Teva. I thought being the name brand Adderall (Teva) that even though a lower dose would work better. I could not have been more mistaken and now I am suffering trying to wake up at all.

I was diagnosed wig ADD. I gave a big problem staying focus on one task. I usually end up starting 12 tasks and not finishing a one. Or not be able to start because of all of my ideas or plans for it. I've been on Adderall xr for about 45 days. I take 30mg in the morning and another 30mg around lunch. Never once had a euphoric feeling, yet it seemed to have been working! Now I don't have any focus like before I was on the med. I'm taking it directly as prescribed. I've never been on any other meds prior. Any insight. ## Sorry for the typos, also I don't get much sleep, always had this problem but it is worst with this med. My schedule is pretty hectic; I'm a single mother, active duty military, and full time student. I have managed to maintain a 3.8 GPA only By t... ...

Adderall tolerance
1 Reply RSS Share
Hello I need help in deciding what would be the best course of action for me to take. A year ago I started getting prescribed Adderall 20 mg that I was suppose to take once a day. It was really working for me for a couple of months but after three months after an eight hour day I started to feel myself getting tired. I told my doctor this and he changed it to 15 mg twice a day. This seemed to be working, but I usually do not take two in one day. Most of the time I take one by 10 am and I don't want my body to build up a tolerance or a dependency on them so I usually only take the second one if I am having a long day. Anywho, I am starting to feel like just the 15 mg in the morning is not doing anything for me. I feel myself kind of just daydreaming or not really there while in class... ...

effexor and adderall

I have been taking adderall ir 10mg twice daily and recently was prescribed 75mg Venlafaxine (effexor) one daily. And ive been noticing that my adderall has not been working and have been very out of focused and tired even when taking my medications. I may be building a tolerance to adderall, but that still doesnt explain why it would stop working as well very sudden. Has anyone else experience effexor causing adderall not to be as effective? ...

I have been taking the orange 20mg Adderall for almost a year now. I had my old Dr. retire and I got a new one. She kept me on it but as soon as I got my new prescription, the one I got was white R 351 pill. Is this the same as the orange or better? ## They have just been manufactured by different companies, which is very common with generics. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and insomnia. How has it been working for you? ## These new white pills are awful. I just got mine from Walmart. They always carried the orange football- shaped ones until last month.

i want to stop Adderall which i have been taking for 13 years because it has reached a point that it is not good. if i stop depression creeps in at variable times and lengths and very cunningly which i now can sense . is there any other substance that i can take and stop the Adderall? I average 35 to 40 mil. a day and always run short 4 to five days before the 30. it is a roller coaster ride I know very well and also as far as organized and structured, it does not exist as far as i am concerned. ## Hello, Mark! How are you? Have you consulted your doctor? There are other medications you can try to replace the Adderall, if it's no longer working for you, such as Dexedrine or Focalin. The FDA warns that most carry the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nau... ...

I am currently taking Dexedrine but I'm finding it is not working all that well. I went to fill my adderall prescription and to find out that it is 90$ for 28 pills. I'm a single mother in school and can't afford it. How do I get a coupon for adderall? ## Hi Jaclyn, If you google "Adderall coupons" a list of options should pop up, such as Free Drug Card. You may also want to give your pharmacy a call and ask about patient assistance programs. Do you have any more questions? ...

Currently on 45 mg a day ... Isn't working well! Don't think my dr will up my rx. Any advice? ## Hello, Elaine! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. It might be time for you to try a different medication. Not all of them work for everyone that tries them. There are several others available that treat the same conditions, such as Concerta, Dexedrine, Focalin and Ritalin. Some are available as time released formulations, so that may also be of better benefit to you. You may want to discuss the issue with your doctor to discover what they consider to be your other treatment options. The FDA lists these medications as carrying the risk of being habit forming and they may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia a... ...

I was diagnosed with adhd about 2 wks ago and perscribed generic adderall 20mg xr. I store my meds in a cubbard above the stove. Last fri I did a self clean on the oven I had never done it before didn't realize how hot it would get. All the meds in the cubbard were extremely hot. Before that the meds worked great I was focused my thoughts were more clear and I was motivated but since then the meds don't seem to be working at all. Could the extreme heat have messed the meds up? ## Hello, Lolo! How are you? It is doubtful that it would have caused them to degrade so fast that they would no longer be effective. It usually takes a lot of time to do that, not just a few hours or so. However, you do need to move your medications to a better location. That is not a good place to store ... ...

i am starting to get really scared. If these made it past quality control, past the FDA, what about the medicines my parents take? What about my birth control (also generic)? These things are going into my body, every day -- in addition to not working, what if they harm me worse than just bad migraines and dizziness? It is obviously a fake, and I bet none of us will be reimbursed. I am furious! ## Hello, Boop! How are you? I think there are some details you aren't aware. A tablet that doesn't work as well for you as a prior one may very well have passed quality control and not had any problem being approved, because generic medications are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20% of the active ingredient. In most cases the difference is insignificant... ...

Hello, I was recently diagnosed with ADHD my doc prescribe me Ritalin the pharmacy gave me the genetic brand Methylphenidate 20mg ER (LA) caps Mfc Actavis. The first day it was ok, made me feel a little more energy, more focus, but also kinda jittery, the fallowing days I didn't even feel anything other than some anxiety and loss of appetite, I was supposed to take them for a month but after taking them for 15 days I decided they were not doing anything for me, except making me want to take Xanax (which I am also prescribed for anxiety) I normally don't take it unless I really need it and just tiny dosages. Anyways went back to my doc. Told him Ritalin wasn't working for me and I wanted to try Adderall; my doc prescribe me Adderall XR 25 mg capsules. I fill my scrip at Walgr... ...

Hello all, I was diagnosed with add back in 2005. My doctor at the time gave me a prescription for welbutrin(spellings probably wrong), which I don't recall it working. I never got it refilled and never went back to get something different. I started a new job last August and kept making mistakes left and right, so I went back to the doctor, a different one, to get something different. Well she put me back on the welbutrin for a month with no results. Today I went to the follow up appointment and told her I didn't feel much different, and it gave me some uncomfortable stomach pains, which sucked...she gave me a prescription for generic Adderall, 20mg once daily. I took it and felt great! But within the first 2 hours I was having moments of ups and downs and started crashing at a... ...
