Common Questions and Answers about Adderall generic pill


1100837 tn?1267672275 My doctor just prescribed Adderall 10 mg - 2x/day to address fatigue, brain fog and what he calls "pronounced ADD" symptoms. (Today he told me to take 10mg in the am and 5 mg (cut pill in half) at noon. Is anyone else out there currently using this medication? Are you taking the sustained relaease or the regular dose? Are you taking the brand name or the generic? What are your experiences? I'd like to compare. Thanks.
Avatar m tn 5 (tonight) I took half of a generic pink pill which is 15 mg I think and it's making me feel very odd. I'm actually very tired and not alert like usual. I have a killer headache and my head also feels very heavy. My heartrate is fairly normal though. Basically I'm just incredibly worried that I have overdosed on adderall. I don't know if the previous 20 mg pill was out of my system by the time that I took the 15 mg. I really just need to know if I'll be okay or not.

Avatar f tn There is a generic brand of adderall which is what i take and i am on medical assistence which pays for it.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have a rather detailed question concerning the absorbance and/or enzymatic breakdown of the components of Adderall or its generic counterpart. Before I get to that let me tell you that I take several vitamin supplements, an amino complex pill, protein shakes, acai berry antioxidant, along with my usual dosages of Dexedrine that can vary from (30-60mg/day). My case of ADD/ADHD is quite severe (like right now I should be studying for an exam as I type this up..
Avatar f tn I found out at the doctor's office today that Provigil is going generic. Good news/bad news. Bad news is that my insurance has never approved Provigil but my doctor always had a plenty of samples for me. Now, no more samples. Has anyone tried the generic Provigil? I've been given the new Nuvigil to try for a week. If that also works then we will fight my insurance company for that. Just checking to see if anyone has tried the new medicine or the generic form.
Avatar n tn I'm paranoid, in serious amounts of pain in my neck and jaw, dehydrated, and really bad nutrition. My RX is 40mg of generic adderall IR a day (one 20mg in the morning, one in the afternoon)- it's really not a high RX, but some days I take three 20mg's and some days I only take one and a half. AAAHHH!
Avatar n tn This increased to twice a day and by September I was on 10 mg of generic Ritalin 1-2 times a day. Mid-December, I was prescribed 20mg of generic Adderall, with 10mg of generic Ritalin to use as needed. My doctor tells me to take the pills on a need-basis. Some days I don't take any medication, other days I meet my prescribed dose.
Avatar n tn I'd like to know EXACTLY how my 4-year-old boy with a heart of gold was put on the generic of this drug without SOME form of diagnostic process. The drug he is on is Metadate. (As a side-note, I asked her if she even knew what the name of the drug was. She didn't.) I suppose the legitimate question, here, is this... WHAT, EXACTLY, ARE THE GUIDELINES FOR PUTTING A 4-YEAR-OLD ON METADATE?
Avatar n tn The only thing I know about Adderall is that it is no longer available as a generic. The company that held the original patent bought the company that made the generic...thus no more generic. So right now, that is my big beef. If I have to bring my son in every month, well yes that will be a big pain in the you know what. I hope it is not true. I guess I will find out soon enough.
Avatar f tn How do I suggest to my PCP that I would like Provigil or Adderall for my EXTREME fatigue, to the poing of falling asleep while driving, without seeming to be drug seeking.? I have got to have something, I drive for a living! I am so afraid of having a wreck, but I can't tell my job I have this problem. I have to have this job for the insurance, since if I went on disability I couldn't get medicare for 2 years, and how do you pay for insurance on the pittance you get for disability? Catch 22.
1100837 tn?1267672275 I'm 51 years old and previously diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. My doctor just prescribed Adderall 10 mg - 2x/day to address extreme fatigue, brain fog and for symptoms he says describe "pronounced ADD". (Today he told me to take 10 mg in the am and 5 mg (cut pill in half) at noon. Is anyone else out there currently using this medication? Are you taking the sustained relaease or the regular dose? Are you taking the brand name or the generic?
Avatar n tn i started taking the generic for adderall 40mg, 20mg in the morning and 20mg in the afternoon 3 d/ ago and i have a sore throat and my tongue is a bit swollen and i developed these lesions.. one on each side of my tongue and its very irritating and a little painful. at the dentist yesterday they told me its wasn't an infection but they thought it was a side effect from unknowingly clenching my teeth, and rubbing against my tongue due to the adderall.
Avatar n tn I am ADDICTED to amphetamine (generic name) " ADDERALL" its true name.. Anyway, I love how it feels but I don't want to feel like that all the time BUT (here's the problem) I will not do any thing all day, literally lye on the couch all day. Nothing, oh and eat! This goes on till I have least one. I even went long as a week off it. What gives? What do i need to do? Want to stop all together.
Avatar f tn Is it because of the generic adderall? I have heard that generic medication can have anywhere between 80% to 120% of the drug in a pill......and that name brand's have to have exactly 100% of the drug. Could it be that with the generic i am getting a little more of the drug and that's why i am feeling this way? Does anyone know if adderall causes heart problems later down the road?
Avatar m tn NOT a relevant solution or replacement for Adderall. Generic IR Adderall isn't expensive at all and is called mixed amphetamine salts or amphetamine, dextroamphetamine mixed salts. Something like less than a dollar per pill.
Avatar m tn I did not take the adderall todday b4 work. I don't know what to do. Just take adderall on my days off? Take adderall when I am home @ night and stay up all night?
Avatar f tn So, in 2007, I went on Adderall short acting pill form which generic form is amphetamine salts or amphetamine mix tabs. With this pill, first of all, it is extremely inexpensive. I pay $30 for 180 tabs 20 mg each. I cut each in half and take each half 4 times a day a total of 40mg. Which is great, due to the fact that it is consistent throughout the day. I have been taking this for almost 2 1/2 years now. I was on 10 mg at first but after 6 months went to 20 mg 2x day.
5757880 tn?1395581622 * Plain Methylphenidate (20mg / Twice a Day) * Generic Adderall (20mg / Twice a Day) * Generic Ritilan SR (20mg / Twice a Day) * Generic Concerta (20mg / Twice a Day) ... seems all the big money is in the extended release medicine. With this list, I'm unsure what would really be best for my son. He is 8 years old, he takes Concerta 54mg once a day in the morning. They are still evaluating him for PDD and also they will be evaluating him for sensory issues.
Avatar m tn Plus, why is she giving you Adderall, and she doesn't think you have ADHD? Usually Adderall dosing is increased slowly, so, for instance, 5 mg twice a day to start is ok. Are you taking the Adderall XR or IR? In addition to the medications, behavior modification therapy is usually recommended as well; psychotherapy.
9003081 tn?1401130098 You could try generic Ritalin, but the cost probably depends on your dose. A few months ago I got 60 pills of generic Ritalin IR 10mg with no insurance and it cost me around $30-$50. (which is cheaper than getting insurance and probably also cheaper than Concerta). But the cost probably depends on the brand, some brands probably cost less or more.
5757880 tn?1395581622 If his problems are more school than home related you might find that he doesn't need the third dose at all. I only took 2. I've never taken Concerta but I have taken Adderall and Adderall XR (extended release) as an adult. I really don't think there is any difference between an ADD drug and the extended release version as long as you take the medicine exactly when you are supposed to.
Avatar f tn I started out on Vyvanse and then due to insurance problems went to generic Adderall XR. It doesn't work as well. I figured out the insurance issue so I will be returning to Vyvanse. My doctor thinks it is the best and I found it works great and it really stopped my hyperactivity, thank God. The challenge is I need to up my dose to help with attention, but I tend to be sensitive to the side-effect of sleeping difficulty, so my doctor wants to keep the dose low. Hopefully all works out.
Avatar m tn I've never seen anyone have side effects as severe as you described from Adderall with Concerta. I still have some side effects from adderall. But I never remember having any from Ritalin (immediate release form of Concerta). But it's been 15 years since I was proscribed that. I find Strattera very interesting. I've never taken it. It's far less proscribed than other ADD/ADHD drugs. It's called an NRI and it's the only drug of it's kind on the market. It's not a stimulant!
Avatar f tn I've searched and the only thing I found about Paxil and Pexeva is they are same exact anti-depressants, it's just that the Pexeva is a generic form! Do you know for sure if the two of them are exactly the same? No, I've never done cocaine or any other drugs except I do take Oxycodone because I have a herniated disc in my low back, it's the L-5 disc. I'll admit I do take them for that nice feeling too though, which I know it's a dumb thing to do!
370801 tn?1264408618 I recall reading a study, which found that the generic bupropion XL released its ingredient at a different rate than the brand name Wellbutrin XL. Apparently, the generic pill released 34 percent of its ingredients in the first two hours (which caused irritability in some people), compared to 8 percent in the brand name. You could ask for the brand name to see if it helps. Btw, I take the SR 150mg twice daily. I believe the XL is for once daily.
712802 tn?1274649085 experience since it is one of many symptoms of this disorder. My psychiatrist also prescribed generic Adderall twice daily to help combat the fatigue & it does help tremendously. Be aware any amphetamine based drug can also awaken any OCD type behavior. Mine is smoking, on Adderall I will crave cigarettes, off Adderall I will only think about them occasionally. I chose to take the Adderall & keep my smoking to 1/2 pack/day. She also prescribed 1mg.
Avatar f tn When I was a kid I tried many ADHD meds, but I don't remember if they were helpful then. Recently I've been on generic Adderall, and Vyvanse. I found Vyvanse to work the best, and my doctor thinks Vyvanse is the best that's out there right now.
Avatar n tn They make many generic drugs that work decent depending on the individual. The pill with the imprint (273/.5) is a generic Klonopin (Clonazepam) , round, yellow, and 0.5mg (milligrams). The pill is also scored on the side imprinted .5 - For a photo of this pill please view this link: http://www.pharmer.
447130 tn?1225474466 Hi Erin- I was on generic adderol tablets for six months, and they worked great, however, I felt like I was needing a liitle higher dose. I was only taking 10mg tabs twice a day. My doc suggested that i try a new drug called vivanse, that it's in the same family as adderol. I was hesitant to change meds, but reluctenly, switched to vivanse, 1 30mg capsule once a day. Wow! what a mistake that was!! I had a very bad reaction to it. It felt like a hallucingenic. Also made me very tired!!
