Complaining about Adderall and concerned for what is left of its future

I'll try to make this short and sweet.

Adderall is manufactured by different manufacturers. We all know this. Some users notice no difference in these variants of Adderall. Some users notice a huge difference in these variants of Adderall.

The +25%/-20% flexibility of drug formula and different inactive ingredients in Adderall pills by the different manufacturers essentially results in a different type of Adderall for many users.

Corepharma's influence is rapidly growing. Corepharma's Adderall may work for some individuals, but by a landslide I have witnessed more complaints- myself personally, pharmacists, doctors, friends, and what seems to be half of the Internet.

The FDA's loose requirements have allowed for the erection of lousy drug manufacturers.

I am sick and tired of only reading about people complaining online about the variance in the different Adderall pills.

How difficult do you imagine it for steps to be taken to get the FDA to do something about this? Or is the FDA so corrupt, nothing can be done about this?

Basically, I see it only taking a few more months before companies that can competently manufacture Adderall disappear forever. Then what?

I propose either the FDA tighten its requirements for what exactly Adderall is, or for the drug to be redefined.

For example:

Adderall A
Adderall B
Adderall C
Vyvanse
Adderall XR A
Adderall XR B

Right now, Adderall A, Adderall B, and Adderall C are all the same Adderall. But when Adderall C is the only Adderall that can be found in any of the pharmacies, there are problems.

Does anyone see where I am going with this?

This is going to happen before we know it. It is currently happening. More and more people are getting Adderall prescriptions by the day, and suppliers are having a hard time holding up. There always seems to be an Adderall shortage, but we are seeing another hard one currently and will be facing only worse ones in the future. Now, the ultimate problem here is that after scouring for any pharmacy at all that has Adderall, and to only be provided with Adderall C, well, as this whole post details, this is untenable essentially.

Changes need to be made, and quickly. It seems as if everyone is content enough with just complaining about this problem, and investing more time each month to solve the problem the lazy way, instead of making demands that the drug industry revise its current methods.

The path of least resistance is currently being taken by all Adderall users who notice a difference in Adderall pills made by different manufacturers and do nothing about it. The day will come when the Adderall that works for you is nonexistent due to the DEA allocating the amphetamine salts to the manufacturer that produces lousy versions of the drug.

Whether you notice a difference in your pills or not, once again, this change needs to be made.

I am disgusted with the state of the FDA, the DEA, the drug manufacturers, and every single pharmacy in the United States.

I am no activist whatsoever, but this is something I am strongly considering becoming an activist for.

You have to see that there is a possibility only Actavis Adderall XR pills will be available at a point in the future. There needs to be a standardization or a redefinition of the drug.

Your post adds to my point. The pinned thread about all the different types of Adderall in this section of the forums is FULL of complaining people.

We need to work together and solve this problem before we are completely helpless on the matter.

I believe that the OP is saying "Yes, you can do that today, but soon you may not have that choice".

Something that is also profoundly concerning to me, is that when a generic drug is manufactured, the testing is done by that company, and the FDA must simply trust their results. God only knows if the generic company continues with the integrity of the results when they actually sell their product

As far as I know the only thing a generic drug maker has to prove is that the activie ingrediant in the generic is the same as the brand. All the other crap in it can be pretty much left up to the drug maker.
