Generic Adderall - Experiences


Recommended Posts

Now I know that all generics are not created equal-- Teva's Bupropion XL (the "same" as Wellbutrin XL my hiney.) is a great example...but I was wondering if anyone had experience with more than one generic of adderall since there seem to be at least five or six manufacturers.

I know the YMMV mantra but am still curious...I'm a little nervous about switching generics since I've had problems before (sertraline"zoloft" for example) but wonder if it's different with this kind of med.

Thanks for any opinions/input!

ps-

what prompted this question is that my Adderall 20mg generic pills are now hot pink and round-- and made by Ranbaxy Pharm. Inc (never heard of them before)..picture if it helps: https://member.express-scripts.com/static/g...;alchemyid=3750

rather than my old generic oval peach pills by Barr:

here is a link to the different forms that adderall comes in (by dosage/manufacturer) if anyone wants more info:

Worked fine for me. Kinda hard to mess up a drug this simple. No weird compounding, no special extended release mechanisms and it is a plain salt that has been around for 70+ years.

FWIW, the generic Xanax XR works much better than the brand name. *shrug*

Don't sweat it. ;)

thanks a.m.--

at least I have some color in my pill case now! it was all so boring before (white, pale yellow, washed out peach: bleh) but now I have some hot pink thrown in and it's a party! ;)

I do think there's a bit of a difference just because the pink one has a pretty decent coating while the old ones didn't really (I can totally taste the difference even if it's only in my mouth for 0.2 seconds). am going to try splitting the pink pill and taking two halves at a time to see if it kicks in faster that way, otherwise they pretty much feel the same (meaning: I can barely feel them, oh well)

thanks again,

m
