Best generic brand of adderall?

i currently take generic adderall, both XR and IR, but ive noticed recently that the generic and brand name seem to be the same thing. my friend is prescribed generic 15mg IR, and i got 15mg IR in brand name, and they were literally the same orange oval pill with "dp" and "15" on it. the pharmacist even showed me the bottle that says new adderall formula on it. so i paid 95 dollars for the same thing. so now i buy generic...

I WAS JUST WONDERING, WHAT CHAIN STORE OR SUPERMARKET SELLS THE BEST GENERIC KIND OF ADDERALL? I HAVE READ THAT DIFFERENT CHAIN STORES LIKE WEGMANS, TOPS, TARGET, CVS, WALGREENS, RITE AID, KMART, AND WALMART MAY SELL DIFFERENT KINDS OF GENERIC (PINK, ORANGE, OVAL, CIRCLE)

has anybody had any special success with a certain stores brand of generic?
i read on an old post that sandoz/eon is a special brand that can be bought at independent pharmacies or online, but i rather go to a place in person and purchase my adderall to avoid any scams and to get it without any waiting.

i am from buffalo, ny.

thank you for any response! i greatly appreciate any response!

Pepsi, we have a couple of threads stickied in the Medications -> Adderall forum that have the information you are looking for.

Re: Best generic brand of adderall?

Here are some links to those stickies (and if these don't help, just browse the Adderall section and you'll find plenty of people sharing their experiences with generics and advice on where to find particular generics):

Re: Best generic brand of adderall?

Pepsi,

I was on the organge Adderall (XR version though). My pills were Teva. After speaking with them, I was told that their generic and brand capsules come off the same manufacturing line - no difference.

Re: Best generic brand of adderall?

For me the Global(Impax) XR's work the best, but they're hard to find. I just finished calling 8 different pharmacies before finding them! And don't assume that if you find them at a pharmacy one month they'll still carry them the next. I filled my script at my usual Target pharmacy last month, which was Global(Impax) and this month they have Barr/Teva.

I used to use Shire's Brand only, but found that they don't work for crap anymore. Definitely Global is the best, although everyone reacts differently. I've read one person say they had terrible side effects from them. You'll never know till you try them.

Also....the ONLY manufacturers currently producing the generic Adderall XR's are Barr/Teva, Shire, and Global/Impax. Sadly, not a lot of options.

Hope that helps in the XR departement
