Generic Adderall XR issues

So I filled a prescription for generic adderall XR 30 mg (switched from vyvanse 70 mg which I've taken for months) and after taking it for a week it seems to be much less effective than when I took name brand adderall xr years ago. Also it doesn't last as long and has some unpleasant side effects. I've been eating and sleeping properly so I don't believe the issue is with me personally. The manufacturer of this prescription was Prasco Laboratories. I can have my next prescription filled with either Sandoz or Impax but I'm not sure which would be better (by which I mean work like it's supposed to). Can anyone advise what I should do here? Thank you!

Besides Sandoz and Impax, I also have the option to fill my prescription with Actavis

All xr generics are made by SHIRE except ACTAVIS and another one- I think prasco. I wasnt aware that sandoz and impax made xr I thought they only made ir. I take xr and my brand is Global and I love it.

Re: Generic Adderall XR issues

I'll be looking to see if there's other responses because I started taking Prasco Adderall when my Medicare wouldn't cover Vyvanse that I'd been taking for years. I am wondering if another manufacturer would help. Not having taken Adderall previously, I have nothing to compare it to but compared to Vyvanse it is not nearly as helpful.

Re: Generic Adderall XR issues

Teva works for me. Others on the forum don't like it but it's been fine for me. There is a lot of debate on generics. Sarahsweets, does Global manufacture IR as well or only XR?
