Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

In case anybody is interested, I was able to get Amneal generic Dexedrine Spansules. It is the exact same as the brand name Dexedrine Spansules also made by Amneal. Same capsule colors and markings too. Amneal owns the patents for Dexedrine so if you want the real stuff, have your pharmacy order Dextroamphetamine ER from Amneal.

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

Has anyone been able to locate Mayne Dexedrine recently? I used to get it regularly at Fred Meyer but now they are only giving me Actavis...

Second question - why do the Mayne and Actavis Dex capsules look identical?

I'm on the Daily Med website but I don't understand how you can tell when a medicine is discontinued? I see 71 results for "Dextroamphetamine." When I click for more info, I can't find a single one that's listed as discontinued.

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

I truly wish I could get brand name Dexedrine Spansules.. the best I've found in generics has been actsvis... it lasts 4 hours max and causes insomnia.. It's better than Mallinkrodt, which made me hostile, but still.. How on earth does one go about getting insurance to cover brand name? Recently switched to IR and much prefer Spansules.... I just wish I could obtain the Amneal brand covered by insurance. The oop cost is unrealistic at 2 grand for my prescribed dose.. I'm honestly bummed out and wish I had the opportunity of trying them.. do you all get a prior auth or what?

All the best

You don’t need the brand Amneal. Request the generic Dexedrine Spansule manufactured by Amneal. If you check the product identifiers, the “generic” and brand made by Amneal are identical. Walgreens was able to get Amneal generic in 2 days for me.

Sorry if I made a typo! Amneal is the brand and authorized generic, Amedra is shutting down production.

You are lucky Walgreens was able to order Amneal for you. After finding Mallinckrodt sub par and Actavis AWFUL after they stopped manufacturing Mylan (which I liked), both CVS and Walgreens said they couldn't order Amneal. Walgreens was especially rude, acting as if I were a criminal. I don't know what to do now, and I am not a happy camper.

Put in the NDC number, it should show up as "DISN" or "DISC" I forgot which one showed up when I put in Mylan's.

Maybe there was a merger. These pharma companies absorb each other so fast it's hard to keep up. Barr/Teva/Actavis, now maybe Mayne...

adhdseeker, that's great that Walgreens was willing to order you Amneal spansules. How much better are they compared to the unauthorized generics? Were they super pricey? The Walgreens pharmacist acted like I'd asked for crack instead of requesting a different brand of the same medication.

I was the one who obtained the Amneal I think unless the other user did as well. Either way, the effectiveness seems to be more consistent with the Amneal. Maybe a better time release since it's using the Spansule technology? There's no up and downs anymore and my end of the day crash and headache are gone.

The price is the same as the other generics since Amneal sells both brand Dexedrine and generic, but they are the same exact pill.

If your pharmacist is treating you like that, find a different one. Just explain you want your medication filled with Dextroamphetamine ER from Amneal instead of Actavis or whoever. If you have the prescription in hand, there's no reason why they shouldn't order it for you. Maybe try a neighboring Walgreens?
