Label says Corepharma, pills look like Mylan

Hello,

I've been on generic Adderall for about a year, and so far I've only had experience with the Teva 30 mg tablets.

Today, I filled my script at a local pharmacy instead of the Walgreens I usually use, and I noticed the label on my rx bottle had Corepharma listed as the manufacturer. However, the pills are a light orange color with M A30 printed on one side. From what I've gathered, these are from Mylan, not Corepharma.

It seems almost certain that the label is wrong, but I just wanted to run this by the knowledgeable community here to be absolutely sure. Is it possible that the pharmacy got this wrong, or am I missing something?

Thanks in advance. I'm sorry if this has been covered, I couldn't find anything from searching.

The pills are imprinted with M A30. According to online search, that is indeed Mylan. I'm not sure why the label would print it as Corepharma. But there's no way that a Corepharma manufacturing plant would accidentally put the wrong company's imprint on their pills!

Yeah, Iím not even sure why I doubted it, apart from not knowing what the pills looked like until today. I think the pharmacy probably carried Corepharma until recently, but I donít much, or anything, about the label-printing process.
Thanks!

Well, the field of healthcare is so convoluted, so it's worth double checking! Who knows, maybe Corepharma secretly bought out Mylan! Or maybe Mylan sold/contracted its generic Adderall to Corepharma.

For the pharmacy's sake, it might be helpful for them it you point out the apparent error next time you see them. Just in case there might be a serious problem with their operations that could lead to future safety issues for other patients.
