Yesterday I picked up my prescription and realized it's by a manufacturer I have never heard of, Zydus/Nesher Pharmaceutical. I have found Sandoz to be most effective for me, and noticed a difference when my script was filled with Teva once before so I spoke with my pharmacist. My pharmacy is kind enough to do what they can to keep Sandoz in stock for me, but occasionally it's unavailable. I'm curious to know what others are experiencing with Zydus in it's efficiency to get an idea what I could expect from this medication over the next month. It's somewhat newer and haven't found a single review so even if you personally haven't taken Zydus brand generic but come across a review I'd appreciate you passing it along. Thanks in advance for any feedback!

I take Adderall IR for extreme fatigue that's associated with my depression. It used to help my mood as well as my energy level. For the past few months I've been taking Zydus brand and it hasn't been giving me any boost in energy or mood at all. I thought I had just built up a tolerance to Adderall but today I got a new prescription that's made by Epic. After taking a 15 mg pill, I have so much more energy than I did while taking the Zydus brand. I will be sure to specify from now on that I cannot take any medication that's made by Zydus. I feel like filing a complaint to the company!
I completely agree that the Zydus version is awful. I take the 30 mg and it feels more like a 5 or 10 mg dose. I hate it that all the generics for this medication are so wildly different. I've had other generics in the past that failed and it makes you feel powerless. Who has the time to call 10 pharmacies to track down a generic that actually works? From month to month I never know what I'm going to get and the side effects are all wildly different, but Zydus is particularly bad! It makes me exhausted and I also feel like I'm in some sort of brain fog.
Hello! I have not experienced a difference among the variations of the brands, but I do see that there is cotton in the bottle separating the different companies and the pharmacist stated that it is indeed hard to come by as the kids are now back to school after being off of it in the summer, so that's a big reason for the shortage. I hope this helps with at least one of the reasons of why the market is slim right now.
Yes, I’ve had them and to me, they are as awful as aurobindo. I honestly have no clue how the FDA passes these off as being the same as the brand. I have always used Teva and then 3 months ago I suddenly couldn’t find them. It’s been a horrible transition. Hope they work better for you.
I went to pick up my adderall from Kroger’s. They gave me a new generic brand made by Zydus. This medication was poison for me. This caused me to have severe depression, very fatigue. I was not myself at all. I’m a very energetic person. I took this medication twice a day for 4 days. The symptoms started to get worst. I decided to stop taking. Contacted my doctor. She agreed..I have been talking Adderall for years no problem.
Worst generic IR out there. You should avoid it all costs and we should all file complaints. I was seriously ill from taking this for many months before I made the connection.
Please fill out a med watch report with the FDA if you have had any side effects with this med. https://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/medwatch/
this needs to be off the market. I experienced increased depression, dizziness, felt everything around me was in slow motion, could not focus. Was in a total brain fog. I have been taking generic brands of Adderall for well over 20 years, and never had one that made me feel like this.
