Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

I don't see much if any current feedback on dex er generic manufacturers and am curious as to what those around here prefer?

I think the following generics are available at this time:

Impax: purchased Amedra/Corepharma and also manufacturers the Corepharma generic

Mayne: purchased Actavis generic

Mallinckrodt: Generic manufacturer

Mylan: newer FDA approved generic manufacturer

Barr: generic manufacturer

I would like to know which generic any of the few left on dex spansules prefer and personal experiences with any/all.

Thanks.

Not many seem to use the spansules these days.

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

Dosing schedule typically is: Start day with capsule instantly, redose 4 sometimes 3 hours later, and then a 3rd time at about 7 or 8 PM. Total of 45 mg a day, but when Iím optimal I do 60mg a day. I take my short acting barbiturate 4 hours after my last Dexedrine.

I use the 15mg spansules, and have only experienced the Barr brand and I believe the Mylan brand (The 15mg capsules are white with red print). I prefer the Barr brand because they seem to work less subtlety which I like and do not feel like a distant, vague feeling of focus that Mylan provides. Iíve noticed that Milan can leave me listless sometimes and somewhat melancholy, especially towards the end of the day, even before the crash, which I always negate anyway with heavy duty, schedule 2 hypnotics.

Yesterday, I was supplied with the Actavis 15mg Dexedrine, which maybe to early to tell, but appears to be WAY better than Mylan: Smoother, Clarity, Focus, Calm, Mental Kick!

That being said I found a really cool new psychiatrist/ NP Iím about to switch to who is gonna switch me back to my optimal combo of dextroamphetamine instant release 10mg every 2 hours (50mg a day) + 200mg Seconal.

Hope this helps

Dude, yes, same experience here. Mylan really doesn't work that well... I get melancholoy/listless on it.. i'm upset cus I don't have the inner clarity I want and that I get from the other stimulants. It's like it's missing an essential ingredient of some sort. There's other benefits to it though.

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

When I took the spansules I took Barr and it worked great.

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

I've been taking it for a few months now, I wanted to try a couple of different manufacturers however, they seem to only stock Mallinckrodt here. It's been fine. I take 30mg in the morning and then 30mg short acting in the afternoon. I'm not sure if there is a large-scale shortage but I've been trying to find a pharmacy for the past few days that can get it in :/

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

Thanks cobain67, I hope so too! The only thing current that I've found on dex er is that Mylan discontinued it last month.

Hey, this is REALLY helpful to know as I've been looking all over for it. How do you figure out something like that? Did a pharmacist tell you that?

You can check out the FDA's website which lists current drug shortages as well as those to be discontinued by certain manufacturers.

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

So, I'm going to ask my p-doc about switching my XR med, maybe to the spansules because IR Dex (Zenzedi) has been so helpful. So far I seem to have issues with extended release meds.

Anyway, I looked at dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/druginfo page and apparently Impax and Lineage make the authorized generics of the now gone brand name Dexedrine Spansules.

It's interesting to see that these two have way less inactive ingredients than all the other generics according to this page's info. And there's some bizarre inactive ingredients in some of these Dex generics! Check it out.

Anyone try Impax or Lineage Dex ER?
