View Full Version : First day on Brand name

Personally I feel like slow calm and much better concentrations. I had been on generic adderall xr 10mg for a 1 year and then recently few months moved to generic adderall xr 15mg.

Today the brand name adderall xr 15mg personally much better. If there is such thing that brand name and generic are same efficacy why manufacturer still making brand name?

Are brand name is just all in our head makes it better because the price we pay?

Genetics only have to be equivalent to a certain degree. So generics usually aren't 100% the same and may lack an other ingredient that the brand name has that improve effectiveness. a small difference in ingredient definitely makes a diffferent. i'm sure manufacturers would be considerate of those buying brand name and making it a bit more like VIP treatment even though they all paid to get the same show.

I switched from xr 15 mg to 20mg and 5mg ir in the afternoon. I have been on this combo now for 3 weeks. I think brand name really last 5-6 hours. Its a good thing I have 5mg ir i take it around 5-6pm to extend 2-2.5 hours.

There's no way to know because of confirmation bias, and certainly not from your first day regardless.

I also have had the same experience. I dislike Teva Adderall XR, it seems to make me irritable for some reason. I have had a great experience with Shire Adderall XR.
