Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Hi, so I was prescribed Adderall 20 mg by my doctor, but my insurance only covers generics, and so I was given D-Amphetamine Salt Combo by Barr, the peach tablets with b/973 on it. I can't figure out if this is the IR or the XR though, as it doesn't say on the label.

Those would be considered IR. They are a tablet. The XR is a capsule with time release beads inside.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Oh okay, thank you. Is that a typical starting dose, 20 mg IR once a day?

I think that is pretty normal. That is where I started. I was prescribed 10mg twice a day though.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Perhaps a better question then would be whether it is typical to only take one pill a day for the IR?

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Hi all,

For those looking for Corepharma, Kroger usually carries them (i'm in atlanta). I've been on barr for the last several months without any major side effects. Just thought I'd give Core a shot for a month. Let you know how it goes.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

I've been getting bounced around multiple brands by my pharmacist. Switching to Mallinkrodt, I didn't have any side effects, but I think it wass because it wasn't doing anything at all. Switch from that to Sun, and I had some mild headaches, but I was productive again. It was great. Until they couldn't get that anymore, so then I was back on Core, and it was okay. Got home yesterday with a new one (usually they tell me, but not this time). The pills are blue, round, with the crossing score marks on one side, and say U27 on the other. Aurobindo. Looked it up, and found that most folks here haven't liked it, though it seems pretty new still. Also found a warning letter from FDA (with no information about the results of the letter), and a recall notice. Grrr.

Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

Aug. 12 FDA issued recall notice re Barr 10 mg amphetamine mixed salts. Reason: Failed Impurities/Degradation Specifications: out of specification for unknown impurity. Note that the recall was issued by the company. I found no other details.

Wink Re: The Official Adderall IR Generics Information Thread

So the Barr generic IR is awful? I get it from Walgreens. My insurance doesn't cover name brand IR but covers name brand XR. I thought it was awful in that it doesn't help symptoms and just eating..for a few minutes. I meet with my Doc tomorrow and I'd like to discuss Concerta or some other medications. The problem is, he doesn't know much about ADD. I get the Barr 20mg tab.

I find that the Teva/Bar brand is more potent than any other

One generic brand that I would definitely avoid is Mallinckrodt

There's tons of reviews the Actavis XR (mostly negative) but I cant find anything about the IR version. I'd just like to have an idea of what I'm in for.

Here's what they looks like:
I've been taking this 30mg Actavis for about 4 months now, with excellent results. I break them in half, taking 15mg in the morning with breakfast and another 15mg after lunch. My only comparison is on the oval Tevas before, which came on too fast, made my chest hurt, and fell off without warning. The IR Actavis comes on more steadily (around 30 to 45 minutes), lasts much longer, and tapers off gently. My mood is stable and productivity remains high. I've noticed that I must eat when taking it and keep drinking water throughout the day. Actavis IR is a blessing for me.
