Exclamation Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

I noticed between 2013 and present day that Teva Adderall IR seemed very weak.

However, within the last six months or so, I have noticed a marked increase in its efficacy

Question Instant release (10mg) manufactured by "Sun" (India)

Went to a different pharmacy to ask about their manufacturers to compare prices and they had instant release by "sun"
Any experiences from this manufacturer?

Justahedgehog,

"Sun" is by Sun Pharmaceuticals.

30mg NDC - 57664 -647 -08
20mg NDC - 57664 -646 -08

Inactive ingredients
Crospovidone
Magnesium Stearate
Microcrystalline cellulose
Corn Starch
D&C yellow #10

30 mg yellow tablet markings: MP 447
20 mg yellow tablet markings: MP 446


You can pull up more info at the dailymed here:https://dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailyme...2-647cbfacd296

Anyway here is what I can tell you...some of the info is fact based the rest is anecdotal and speculation from personal experience and from reading comments of orhers.

Sun Pharma bought out Ranbaxy and Mutual Pharmaceuticals a couple years ago.

Ranbaxy (had a bad reputation) and used to manufacture the Corepharma adderall every hyperactive person hated back in 2007 to 2011. The reason the ADHD hypers hated it was because it was way to "speedy" or as someone once said like "21 red bulls in 6 hours". The inattentive ADD'rs like me loved it because it was very stimulating and woke up our sleepy brains..

Now Sun Pharma bought out Ranbaxy which was aquired by Mutual Pharma who manufactured generic adderall for Sun Pharma....

Confused yet?

So it went Ranbaxy -> Mutual Pharma -> Sun Pharma distributes the product..

Anyway, long story short... The Sun Pharma product "might" be the old Ranbaxy/Corepharma formula of adderall. Or it might be a new generic formula most of us have not had... The distribution of this generic has been sporadic but since Corepharma and Actavis no longer make generic adderall IR tablets we might see this product more often in the coming weeks and months.

Point being; it might be really good, average, or poor.

I know that's not what you want to hear but it's the best i can tell you.

On a personal note i have been trying to locate that generic form to try and see if it's like the old Corepharma formula that worked so well for me in the past.

Did you locate it at a national pharmacy like CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Costco, or Rite Aid?

You can google the medschat forum about the Sun Pharma generic adderall and will find some mixed reviews both positive and negative.

Ultimately it's up to you to roll the dice and see how well it works for you.

That's all the info i can offer you today.

Best of luck

-M

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Teva IR has really gone --down hill--
it wasn't as evident before, but now it is horrible

--Anyone experienced this within the last 1-4 months?--

I had initially thought (6mo+) ago that their efficacy was fairly decent

Just made this post to confirm the Teva generic IR downhill fiasco. Used to be great years ago now they are lifeless with a small small short rush of beginning euphoria followed by complete speediness with little focus. Not good

I think there is a bioavailability issue with keep this product

The formula was changed in 2017, and it is obvious

Re: Teva. Was getting Aurobindo for the past year and a half because that's what my pharmacy was getting and I just accepted it. Things in my life have slid downhill to a significant degree but you don't blame it on the meds...

Yesterday had my rx filled and I received TEVA. Omg. My eyes were open to thing I hadn't noticed in forever, my productivity was 1000% better. Teva gives me tension headaches but I'll make that trade ANY DAY for the clarity I have now. It may have taken a dive, but it is still far superior to the crap I was receiving before. I'm going to have my doc specify Teva On my Rxs in the future and I'll drive an hour out of the way to find a pharmacy that stocks it if my pharmacy doesn't play ball.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Seems like I was able to get the last of another pharmacys supply of CorePharma after my current pharmacy was unable to order more. Current pharmacy now carries Sandoz which i've had bad reactions to. Pharmacy I just picked up from in Edmonds, WA is gonna carry mallinckrodt.

Anyone have experience with that manufacturer? Going to see if I can find somewhere that carries Sun Pharma and try that next month.

Teva is making me morose and mute and defiant and just awful.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

I feel more confused now that I know more about generics.

*which I want to thank everyone who posts here because before I found this forum I had NO idea any of this was a thing. Thank you

I've taken Corepharma, Mylan and Teva brand generic IR (20/30mg) - no issues or major side effects until august 2017 when Teva seemed to stop working and I started getting horrible side effects. Since then its been downhill.

I stopped taking it the last few days, I don't feel any of the bad side effects but I'm also getting NOTHING done. Ok actually I did fall into a black hole on Pintrest for 3 hours yesterday.

Anyway - going to see my doctor today to get a new prescription but I'm confused about which brand I should be looking for.

*I did find a small local pharmacy (not a chain) near my house. I'd like to know what I should be asking for.
