Hello, I am new to this forum. I am here asking if anyone else experienced what I have with my meds.

Currently I've been on adderall xr 20 mg for over a year and it's worked fine until a couple weeks ago... I went to the same local pharmacy the whole time and got the same generic form until I was working out of town and filled it at a cvs pharmacy and it was a different color and different manufacture . I thought no biggie and took it. The second day of taking it I was getting annoying headaches and felt out of it and even had to call out of work cause I thought I had some type of virus. Well my doctor narrowed it down to the diff manufacture of this generic . So he had to jump through hoopes for me to fill another script out in the same month. So I got the new script went to my pharmacy and they gave me the type I always get. Happy I was until..... I took it and first two days I had a headache and felt tired. Second week now I just feel tired after taking it like I took a sleeping pill... Any thoughts on this? I'm out of ideas and it's frustrating

Yes, there is a difference with Activis at CVS. Namely it sucks!

You, friend, are not alone.

My local WalMart pharmacies have Teva Barr which is way better in my opinion.

All of the generic adderall xr's are made by SHIRE except ACTAVIS. Many many people have had negative experiences with actavis. Its worth looking at which manufacturer you have. Global/Teva/Barr and Shire, are all made by Shire. Actavis is fairly new.
