Adderall Generic Comparisons Please

Posted by b2chica on August 26, 2019, at 14:00:34

Primary question:
What generic adderall is MOST like the old CorePharma one??

its been quite a while since i've posted but my life is falling apart a little more each month. Right now the biggest issue is once again my adderall. i'Ve been on Evekeo for the last year (which is at best..."eh". but no longer able to get that so i want to switch back to adderall.

The problem is that really the ONLY adderall that worked for me was the CorePHarma mfg. Of course that got bought by impax, but sold their formula to Epic Pharma who is 'aledgedly making it. PROBLEM? i cannot access it. none of the 13 pharmacies i called in my town carry it or are not able to order it. I have been in contact with Epic constantly and they assure me they are mfg it and they have available 5-10-15-20 & 20mg tabs.
I have tried the different pharmacies with 10mg, 15mg, 20mg and 30's. still nothing.

one pharamcy is able to get 5's but insurance wont cover that if i need 15 or 20mg BID.


****For those that did try the CorePharma back in the day (whether you liked it or NOT) what other mfg is most like that one??


ps the ones i've been on and for various reasons did NOT work are listed below... So looking for something other than those listed.

Teva
Barr
Sandoz
AuroBindo
SUN
Malinkrodt (sp?)
Mylan


ALternatively tried (and failed)
Dexedrine ER
Dexedrine IR
Vyvanse
Desoxyn
strattera


I APPRECIATE ALL THE HELP I CAN GET.
THank You

hi. i have a friend who takes an xr stimulant that is now generic, but the psych specifies "brand" and then he says "brand" to the pharmacist, and the insurance will cover "brand," because the psych says so. is that an option for you? to get brand, by demand?

if not...there's a (you guessed it) on patent/brand dexedrine, its got a lot of z's in its name...zenzidi or something. maybe it has a special delivery system?

sorry you're going thru this. :-(

I've heard about generic addedalls have problems. A good place to search for info (of post this same question) is the ADHD Reddit group. I saw a lot of posting about it (I'm taking Ritalin and was looking for info on generics for that over there):

I use the old layout:

> what was the problem with Sandoz?

hey Joe. i just pulled up my notes, here is what i wrote... and i do still remember that horrible pain.

SANDOZ-i got terrible headaches. to the degree that it woke me in the middle of the night and crying from headache... concerned i was having an anyureism or something.

but i do have difficulty with generics in general, so keep it with a grain of salt.
thanks

Thanks CI,
i have been dealing with this for the last year, since Epic started supposedly making it again..;i have yet to get ahold of it. i can find it in 5mg tabs but insurance wont cover it since i need to take 20mg BID (i've even tried getting a rx with 15mg BID, still no.
and brand doesnt work but thanks. I actually do that with Pristiq though. its important people know they can do that.

Europe has shortages as well. What are they thinking? You cant just not get your meds.

I think I read somewhere w/ controlled substances manufacturers have to declare the amount they're going to make per year. Once that amount has been sold they cannot make more. That might not be completely accurate but I think there are rules for controlled substances that can confound shortages.
