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 ...

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...

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...

Adderall Generics Thread

Hey guys. Most of us are probably in the same boat--our Adderall doesn't work and it's horrible and we can't function well and it's bull**** and we all know that, but there are other threads/forums to vent frustration. We need a thread with the basics to help us all get going again or to know what to avoid (even though that seems like all of them these days, ha.) PLEASE POST THE FOLLOWING: 1. MANUFACTURER OF YOUR RECENT ADDERALL PRESCRIPTION 2. XR OR IR? HOW MANY MG? COLOR/SHAPE/IMPRINT? (if possible) 3. ***PHARMACY NAME*** AND MONTH/YEAR OF SCRIPT 4. YOUR LOCATION (if you are comfortable with that) 5. SIDE EFFECTS/SYMPTOMS. GOOD? BAD? Generally speaking, chain pharmacies use the same manufacturer at all of their locations throughout the country and that will make it eas...

mp 447 yellow round

Are these tablets adderall, and are they a good brand? ## Anyone tried the yellow MP 447 30 mg generic adderall? These were just dispensed for my usual prescription. NDC 57664-647. Inactive ingredients: - Crospovidone - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Povidones - Starch, Corn - D&C Yellow No. 10 ## Even if someone does report their experience with these as being good, it doesn't necessarily mean that you'll end up having the same reaction. We all react/respond differently to the same meds, including the various binders and fillers in each tablet's composition. So my suggestion would be to try it for yourself if you want an authentic opinion. You can always ask your prescribing doctor to list this specific manufacturer's version of amphetamine/dextr...

Is adderall causing mouth and stomach symptoms?

I am: female, age 30, 'overweight', tobacco smoker, and have been taking 30mg amphetamine salts twice a day for several months. I'm having several weird symptoms. My tongue is white pretty much all the time and a couple times a month taste buds around the tip of my tongue will become red and VERY painful. It is not thrush. Spots in my mouth will seem like it is sloughing off dead skin, as the spots are white and easily come off. During flossing, my teeth (usually fillings) have started to break off and I am acquiring cavities rather quickly. I do keep up with my oral hygiene. ## As reported by the FDA, it has been known to cause sores and white spots in the mouth, as well as causing a tooth disorder. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. So yes, it could be due to...

doctors who prescribe adderall in michigan

My son is 22 and has adhd but we can't find a doctor to give him adderall. ## Hello, Jayne! How are you? Adderall is a controlled substance that has addictive potential, so if you're contacting doctors and asking them to prescribe it, they are going view that as being drug seeking behavior and refuse. What he really needs to do is set up an appointment with a doctor to discuss his issues, get a proper diagnosis and see what they offer as his treatment options. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Jayne, I don't know if you found a Dr to give it to your son yet but my Dr will write them but I DON'T want to put that info out here. {edited for privacy} ## {edited for privacy} ## {edited for privacy} ## Hi Tony, my dr decided to stop my adderall & klonopan when ...

Earlier Refill Than The Date Written On The Prescription

My prescription for Adderall is written for 2/16/16 and I was hoping to get it 2/15/16. I don't know if it's by mistake, but the last 2 times I got my prescription at CVS, they refilled it for the day before (i.e., 1/15/16, not the 1/16/16 written on the prescription). Is this standard practice or was it just a mistake on the pharmacist's part? ## That's usually the pharmacy's discretion, many will fill it a day earlier than the date on the prescription, because one day is not generally a sign of medication abuse. However, some won't, and it may also depend on how many days there are in the month that has passed. Have you asked your pharmacy about it? The FDA warns that Adderall carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, ...

Difference Between Adderall And Amphetamine Salts

I was recently diagnosed with Adult ADD and have been prescribed Amphetamine Salts (Generic for Adderall) for a few months now. The initial dosage was one 10mg tablet/ three times a day and recently my Doctor upped the dosage to one 30mg tablet/ twice a day. I know that overall this has been very beneficial for me but I cant help but wonder if the generic brand (IR Amphetamine Salts) has less of the active ingredient, and more unnecessary side effects(irritability, fatigue). I know that while the active ingredients are likely to be the same, the "fillers" usually are not and even the active ingredients can vary up to 10%. I also know that everybody reacts differently depending on their bodies' make-up as well as the drugs and I have always reacted sensitively to any kind of ...

New M 8956 Adderall XR generic beware

A friend of mine went to Walgreens this month and got Mallinckrodt generic 30mg XR's. The imprint is M 8956. They look like that garbage CVS generic with a clear bottom. I have to fill my script tomorrow and I plan on asking what they have before I fill it. I suggest everyone else does the same. ## I'm new and just got my 3rd XR script filled today and immediately noticed the beads inside the capsule were white and not orange, and found they were made by Mallinkrodt. I haven't tried them yet but would the Walgreens Pharmacy exchange for a new script by a different manufacturer? Not looking forward to a whole month of something with so much negative feedback.. ## They won't exchange it. Once it goes over the counter that's it. ## Did it end up working? ## I just had m...

Generic Adderall brands

I am very concerned and confused about why generic Adderall brands are so all over the place!! I usually get Aurora brand and I'm fine with it but last month I got this corpharma brand crap, it made my stomach ache and gave me a headache! It was terrible. Back on Aurora brand and I feel better again but wtf is up with this BS?! I'm thinking about having my dr write no substitutions on my script and just pay for the name brand adderall. I've tried it in the past and it is by far superior. Motivation, concentration, and energy are all together with minimal side effects. Anyone relate? ## Yep, it's a huge problem (variation in effectiveness) and it's gotten worse over the years. Main problem. With generics the FDA allows up to 20% difference in the "main", activ...

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...

Sandoz Adderall (formerly EON)

I have a bottle of 90 Sandoz Adderall that I don't wan't. It's giving me headaches. I know the pharmacy won't take it back. How do I properly dispose of it without harming the environment? ## HI, Jane! You can take it to your pharmacy for disposal, that's usually one of the things they do. The other option recommended by the FDA actually isn't great for the environment, they instruct you to mix it in with some undesirable substance, such as used cat litter or coffee grounds, place it into a sealed container and dispose of it in the trash. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you! I guess I'll take it to the pharmacy. I wonder how they dispose of it. It's a shame because I've been taking Adderall (a different generic) for a year and it has ...

Aurobindo Adderall

The worst. Don't get it filled ## 100% agreed!!!! I have been on Adderall generic IR since January 2014. Always filled @ CVS. All previous scripts were manufactured by TEVA. (Large football shaped, orange, sweet tasting & 30mg.) They worked great!!!! Until this past Wednesday (Aug 19th, 2014) I went to pick up my script as usual and didn't think anything of it until the next morning when I had to take one. It wasn't the same shape or taste. (This one was round, orange and a chalky bitter taste.) So I took my usual dosage and Bam Nothing happened, I was like WTF!!!! So I looked at the bottle and this new script was manufactured by Aurobindo. This pill does nothing! I've taken 4 pills total and am calling the pharmacy ASAP....

Did my generic Adderall cause me to test false positive for methamphetamine??

I take d-amphetamine salt combos 20mg twice daily, and I recently had a hair drug test for pre-employment purposes. I tested positive for methamphetamine at a level of 570ng/mg, but I have never touched meth! They already did the GC/MS, and are now doing an isomer test, but they say that my adderall could NOT have cause a positive meth result! I've seen in other responses that this is possible, however I can't find any documentation to prove this. I've read over the Adderall and methamphetamine information profiles on this site, but still don't have the proof I need. Does anyone know where I can find this documentation? Please help! ## Adderall does contain amphetamine, which is commonly reported as a false positive for Meth-amphetamine. So you are not alone on this. Man...

Does R3060 Have White Beads In It

Adderall 20 mg xr (blue capsule) with r3060 on it. This has white beads in it. Is this normal because the orange capsules have orange and white beads in it. ## I can't seem to find a photograph of the pill, but I can confirm that your blue capsule imprinted with "R 3060" is identified as Amphetamine + Dextroamphetamine extended release 20 mg. These ones are manufactured by Actavis Elizabeth LLC, so yes, they are real. Manufacturers can also change the look of a pill without any prior notice. So it's difficult to say whether or not these blue ones are commonly prescribed among the other color(s). I hope this helps! ## Yes, the Actavis generic for Adderall XR 20 mg is an all-blue capsule, with the imprint R 3060, and with only white beads in it. I just picked up my Adderal...

actavis adderall

Couldn't take Activis adderall, different from others, terrible. ## Hello, Marguerite! How are you? I'm sorry that you had a problem with it. What types of symptoms did you experience, or did it just not work for you? The FDA classifies this medication as a stimulant that is most commonly used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, insomnia, weight loss and anorexia. ## For the better part of 21 years, I have been on ADD meds, with about 16-17 years of that being on adderall. My dose was 60 mg a day for the last 7 or so years. Got off of it for a few years while not in school, and with the particular job I had, I felt I could manage my ADD without meds. However I am once again taking classes, and have...
