There really isn't brand name IR anymore. Duramed acquired the Adderall IR rights from Shire. Duramed was acquired by Barr, who was then acquired by Teva. Teva is (mainly) a generic medication manufacturer.
(copied and pasted from another older post)
Essentially, there is no brand name IR.

IN my experience ....Teva and Impax are the only 2 that seem to work ....lots of complaints about the others ( and there's at least 4 more manufacturers of the IR) ...and some about those 2 but not nearly as many ....

ask for them by name ....I spent 2 days phoning around to find Teva ....I can get the Impax in MIchigan but not in the Bay area of California ....

good luck

Corepharma work. Forever :eek: But the dry mouth makes me want to put a bullet in my head.

I'm going back to Teva.

I have noticed differences between generic brands of Adderal. [I've never tried "real" Adderall, since my insurance won't pay for it.] It didn't occur to me that the differences could be significant, but one time the tablets I got at Costco felt like placebos -- no effect at all. Then I found out the pharmacy had changed generics. Oh. It matters.
I switched to Safeway. The generic is SHIR. Everything was fine for several months. But the tablets in the bottle I just picked up feel like they are about half the strength of the last ones. Also, they are pale pink instead of bright pink. I checked and it was SHIR as well. Does anyone have information about this lab? Could different batches be different strengths?
