For me, Mallinckrodt takes the cake.

While it would be true to say that all the versions I have had have been essentially the same, small differences seem to be consistent among the brands in my experience.

The thing I like about Mallinckrodt spansules is that they seem to be very smooth, calming even, but with a very present and focused mental energy that I donít get in the same way from other brands.

Picked up my new monthís worth, and to my surprise and delight, it was Mallinckrodt...and hence the photo. ;)

How about you?

Ian

I now get 120 15 mg(stuck with only finding Barrs these day)a month. But before Dex went up in price from 149.99 to 589.99 I got 160 10 mg Barrs, and switched to 15 mg(got the Mallinckrodts.)

10 mg Barrs were awesome for me, 15 mg Barrs are crappy for some reason.
15 mg Mallinckrodts were very speedy and gave me a horrible crash that I had never had on anything other than Ritalin.

The first time I got Dexedrine Spansules I believe they were Amedra? And those were overall the best.

I'd actually prefer Mallinckrodts to Barrs at 15 mg right now, because it's been four years, insurance makes it so cheap that I finally got(10 dollars for 120 15 mg a month.) Everyone I talk to who's had both prefers Mallinckrodts. My insurance company has been awesome to me giving me a script of Dex after only 26 days, making me wait one day cause it had only been 25 days since filling the script after seeing my Psych. I don't feel like making them take a closer look, charge more, drop the extended release Dex from my plan or whatever.

But Amedra was the best ever for me which probably doesn't exist anymore.

Barr is king. Willshire is the devil.

Barr is amazing. Costco gave me Willshire during my last fill up and it's definitely not as smooth. I may have to go back to Walgreens next time. Mall isn't bad, but I definitely think Barr is the best.

They were the original Brand.. They were GREAT.
IMPAX bought Amedra.. raised the price to the moon, then started Manufacturing
a crappy Generic, CaorePharma. When you call them they won't tell you this.
Give them a call and complain..

Is there a Costco near you? I've read hear that some people have luck getting mal at Costco (and you don't need a membership to use the pharmacy). When I've used them, I've received all three brands - mal, Barr and Willshire (for the tablets anyways), so it's been a toss up. Maybe try calling mal directly? I've read here that people have called mal to determine which pharmacies they work with.

What do you guys think of Mylan Dex ER?

No one has ever tried Mylan?? All pharmacies in my location appear to be out of Barr... says it's the most expensive. I can't find anything so it looks like I'm going to have to try Mylan but before i commit to this, I'd like to know what other people think of it. Anyone??

Amedra? I hated the Malincroft and am afraid to try a new brand without more feedback. Afraid as in, I don't want to spend my whole Dex script on this. Anyone? You

From what a few others reported above Amedra was the best/one of the best, though Impax purchased them? Not entirely sure here, just restating what the above posts read.

Okay this is crazy. It's like my second or third time taking Mylan after being on BARR by Teva. The effect of the Mylan is so strong I am having to take less of it compared to my BARR dose! Additionally, I am experiencing a lot of bliss/high type of feelings like I did when I first started to take these drugs.
It's just really strange to experience that simply from having switched manufacturers. This feels like trying a whole new drug.

Also, why does this medicine take longer to become active when BARR took effect right away?
