    Talking Adderall: generic vs real stuff

    Ok I ended up getting generic b/c it's cheaper, and sometimes at least for other meds some people find a difference between the generic and the real stuff...has anyone found this to be the case with adderall or is it pretty much the same?

    The problem with generics is the active ingredient can be off by up to 10% this goes both ways, 10% more or 10% less. I take a serum medicine that keeps a disorder in check, I have been taking it for 5 years. One day my symptoms flared up and I was really concerned. It turns out I was given a generic that month so for me it was like no medicine at all. Don't believe the "generics are as good as the real thing" hype because they are not. If you are just starting addarall you should have gotten the real-thing to form a baseline.

    i saw a huge difference...see my post on "need adderall advice" by justmarried. it may have been just me, but even my doctor has said that what i experienced was common with people that switch to generic. everyone reacts differently though, and some people react better to generic than they do to brand name. as always, you just have to figure out whats best for you.
