Also, could anyone comment as to their experience with brand name Adderall IR?

Re: Who Manufactures Brand Name Adderall IR

Wonderboy,

The closest generic adderall to the Original Shire IR tablet is manufactured by Sandoz. The problem is finding a pharmacy who either carries it or can special order it for you. Then the orher challenge is getting your insurance company to cover the cost of that particular generic because at the present moment it is considerec the most expensive generic adderall IR tablet at this time. (That information came straight from my health insurance company and from three different pharmacists)

You can find the Sandoz but it takes patience...

The other generic IR tablets currently available are:
Sandoz
Mallinckrodt
Teva/Barr
Mylan
Aurobindo
Sun Pharma

**Corepharma was discontinued in May this year but is still floating around intil all stock has been distributed.

**Old Actavis discontinued last year

If you take XR please see the post in the forum about "Important Adderall XR changes in 2017" for other brnds and options regarding the original ans authorized Shire henerics.

Please excyse the typos, i just knocked this post out on my tiny phone keyboard...

Re: Who Manufactures Brand Name Adderall IR

If you mean adderall xr, its SHIRE that manufactures the brand and also provides the raw ingredients and formula for all generics with the exception of ACTAVIS. ACTAVIS is a newer generic and a lot of people have issues with it, myself included. I recommend checking the actavis thread for more experiences. I heard there was also another newer generic but I am not sure if its an independent generic or if it is one that still gets most of its stuff from SHIRE.

Thanks!

I just received new lot of Adderall brand name 10mg IR and its AWFUL!!!!!! I FILLED IT ON December 6, 2017 and have been having an awful time. It is actually making me MORE depressed. I don't know what happened, but its horrible. It gives me extreme anxiety and depression AND BAD HEADACHES. It never used to do this. I have been on it for years and cannot understand what happened. Even as a I sit here and type I can tell its starting to make me freak as I took my normal dose about 20 minutes ago. I keep trying, thinking it's just me, but it is NOT. I AM SO DISTRAUGHT AS THIS IS THE ONLY THING that truly helps me. The manufacturer is TEVA. The pharmacist said the two lots prior to this were the same, but I'm telling you something is WRONG!!!! I wrote to Teva with no response.

Any thoughts or comments truly, truly appreciated. Thanks

Correlation does not means causation. Think of it that way and see.
