Post The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

So, this is the official "Adderall IR Generics Information Thread." I decided to create this after seeing so many questions about the adderall IR generics (and having many questions myself).

Hopefully this will help answer some questions.

Here's how it will go: I will list each generic manufacturer (Sandoz, Barr, CorePharma) and the NDC#, imprint, photo and inactive ingredients for each tablet strength. I may have to make multiple posts to fit it all in, so if you see this before I've posted them all, please be patient.

I have also included information on the old Shire name brand, though I have not been able to find as much definitive information on the new Teva "name brand" so if you have this info and can supplement it, feel free to do so.

If a tablet strength for a particular generic is not listed, it is because that manufacturer does not produce that strength of tablet (For example, Sandoz does not make a 15mg tablet...)

Here we go....

New TEVA "NAME BRAND"
I have been unable to find definitive information. The Teva website indicates that the new Teva "AdderallŽ" name brand tablets are identical to the Barr/Teva generic (same imprint, same NDC#).

See here: http://www.tevausa.com/default.aspx?pageid=76

If this is incorrect and you are taking Teva Name Brand, please update with the correct color, imprint, etc. and a photo if you have it. That would be great!

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

If anything above is unclear, please feel free to post questions and if I can't answer them I'm sure someone else will be able to.

Also, I may update it with XR information, but I don't have that all compiled yet, so it would take some research. If someone else wants to use the above post as a template to make a similar post about Adderall XR and its current generic, please do!!

One last thing: I might post another new thread for people's various experiences with various generics. I think it would also be useful to have one spot where people share their experiences. So many people have questions about the different generics and the various side effects, etc. that they're experiencing. It can be not just frustrating but SCARY. So having a resource for people to explore in such cases might be helpful.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Thanks, pembliss! I'm sure this thread will be very helpful for many people.

------------------------------------------------------------

Here is a picture of Teva "Brand Name" Adderall IR 30mg:



(Sorry for the poor image quality!)

I will try to find an official ingredient list. But, I do know for a fact it has Saccharin in it (blech). This is what gives it that sickly sweet taste and lingering aftertaste.

I find this especially perplexing, since the Feingold diet and other dietary sources for treatment of AD(H)D specify to avoid Saccharin completely. Yet, Teva/Barr still chose to include it in the formulation for no apparent reason.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Ok, I think I figured it out.

Shire sold the rights to manufacture the name brand to Duramed. Duramed was owned by Barr. So when Teva bought Barr, it also acquired Duramed and the rights to the name brand.

"dp" is the imprint for Duramed.

FINALLY! I COULD NOT figure that out before.

Ok, so to add more info, here is a photo of the Duramed 10mg tablet:


I can't find any information on NDC numbers or anything else (including other photos) at this point. But I'll work on it.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

MODERATOR NOTE TIME

Thanks to Pembliss who took the time to research this and post this thread. I hear how people are being affected by changes and feel like they don't even know what they are taking because the different generics affect people so differently.

I really want to keep this information together so that there is an easy resource for finding it.

Join in! What are you taking, how is it impacting you and let people give you their impressions of what has worked, what hasn't and how to get help in finding the right generic for you.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

This is so awesome! I so hope you do it too with the adderall XR. That's what I take and the more I read I am POSITIVE there is a difference between the brand name and the generic brands. Like I said, I started the generic adderall XR a year ago when it first became available and things have gone nothing but down hill since then! I'd taken the 10 mg adderall XR brand name for 4 years before that without a problem. I want my focus back!

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

kid@heart: I hope someone does an XR thread too. I don't know anything about XR, but I know people are having the same name brand vs. generics problems with XR as with IR. Hopefully someone who knows about XR will see this thread and decide to create something similar.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

ABBREVIATIONS:

I thought it might also be helpful if people wanted to share how the generic name is abbreviated on their prescriptions bottles. This has come up in quite a few posts- people are unsure if they've even received the right prescription. Since the generic name for Adderall is so long, it's always abbreviated, but those abbreviations vary quite a bit.

I'll share mine. Here are some of the abbreviations I've had on my bottle before:

"Dextroamphet Combo"
"D-amp Salt Combo"
"Amphetamine Salts"
"Mixed Amphetamine Salts"


If you've had something else, please post!

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

This month my refill was called AMPHETAMINE SALTS 30 MG TABSAN

Normally my adderall makes me stay focused and I can consentrate perfctly. With this new refill I feel tired spacey. I forget what im doing or what im looking for. I feel worn and just plain tired. I can't even think while im writing this. I do have a rapid heart beat I guess thats the only thing telling my unmotivated and tired self that i took my medication today.

I litterally feel like I have the flu and I can't stop daydreaming. Did something change in this medication IMPRINT E 404.

That imprint is Sandoz. Is this a change for you or have you been on Sandoz for a while? I don't know anything about a change in the Sandoz formula, but perhaps someone else who sees this thread will be able to help.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Generics are trash. Ive been on XR for 7 years, then changed to generics and my life when to hell. The "brand" XR now is bunk too. All generics even the stamped "XR" pills. I am desperate now. Tried vyvanse and it gave anxiety and no motivation. I got nothing now but depression and my career going into the waste bucket. Shire needs to be prosecuted for this.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Out of all of the meds, by far I have had the best luck with CorePharma. My local Rite Aid is able to order it for me, and completely believed me when I told them Barr gave me weird side effects. After looking at the inactives, I think I have a pretty good idea why. Core is almost entirely fiber based filler, and Barr is Sand, fiber and saccharin *salt* based. I have major issues with salts. Not to mention if you look up the history of saccharin, the FDA tried to ban it for close to 100 years. Its only been in the past few years they have repented on it. It has been shown to be a potential carcinogen, as well as bad for the body.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

So I am new here, and recently diagnosed ADHD-PI. I had an unsettling experience similar to what I have read here which I wanted to share; I believe this would be the correct thread. So, after diagnosis my doctor issued me a script for 10 mg ER mixed amphetamine salts. I dropped it off at the pharmacy during lunch and picked it up that evening after work. I'll save you from the rambling and just say that the pharmacy gave me 10 mg IR mixed amphetamine salts made by Barr (which I was not aware of at the time that they were IR, just discovered the difference). I took my first dose the next morning as directed, and it was an immediate difference. All my bills were paid in 10 minutes, I created a budget for the month, all the piles disappeared and I felt so tranquil, my mind was at peace. It also totally eliminated the need for me to take Klonopin for SAD. The doc warned it might exacerbate my anxiety, but it had exactly the opposite effect! Problem is, it wore off after 4 hours when the doc sad it should last 10-12. I returned to the pharmacy to find out what was up, at which time I discovered the difference, and that I had taken the IR formulation. They apologized profusely and gave me the correct script for ER. Only the label said "Dextroamp-Amphet ER 10 mg" (Teva), not "Mixed Amphetamine Salts 10 mg" (Barr). I assumed it was the same and went home. Next day, I take the ER dose, and I felt absolutely nothing. Maybe even worse. Called the doc and described it, he said take two ER's, they should equal a 10 mg IR. Did that, now I feel motivated but my mind wanders more than usual and I get angry sometimes (which rarely happened before). Also, my anxiety came back with a vengeance. I do not believe that IR and ER are the same medicine at all. I assumed they were, just one had a longer duration of therapeutic effects. From what I've read on here, lots of people have been experiencing similar things. Just wanted to add my $0.02 on the topic, and perhaps gain some more info or help someone out. Take care!

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

I have to say the Corepharma has not been so good for me. I would like to try a different generic to eliminate more of my side effects i seem to get with the corepharma. side effects i have when i take corepharma are, head ache always! No motivation,Sleepy and not wanting to be around anyone. I am hopeing to switch to a different generic and have the side effects lessen, i would love to hear from anyone else experiancing the side effects while using the Corepharma. And it would be even more helpful if you could please let me know what other generic you got better results from. Thank you everyone and this is a great thread, very very helpful!

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

SoCal: The 10 mg generic tab I had was made by Barr Pharmaceuticals and provided excellent therapeutic effect for me. Your physiology is different, i'm sure, but it's worth a try if you are having a negative experience with corepharma. I can't provide a reference, since Barr is the only IR brand I have taken. I can tell you the Teva ER generic had absolutely no effect on my symptoms and made them worse, with side effects similar to what you describe. Hopefully you find what works for you!
