Is Adzenys XR-ODT the same as Adderall XR?

Official Answer by Drugs.com 5 May 2016

No. Once-daily Adzenys XR-ODT (generic name amphetamine) is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant indicated for the treatment of ADHD in patients 6 years and older.

Adzenys XR-ODT is the first extended-release orally disintegrating amphetamine tablet approved by the FDA after the clinical program established that it is bioequivalent to a previously approved mixed amphetamine salts extended-release capsule (Adderall XR).

Orally disintegrating tablets are formulated to dissolve in the mouth, rather than being swallowed whole like tablets or capsules. Adzenys XR-ODT is a patented formulation and not a generic of amphetamine mixed salts XR capsules.

The once a day dosage comes in six different strengths to enable the healthcare provider to individualize a specific dose for each patient.
