This company has the worst record of manufacturing medications. I have informed Walgreens to not fill my prescription from this brand. The medications produced are "snake oil", inefficient products only hurt the public. FDA should investigate why these products are so inefficient.

It’s not all in your head. The MALLINCKRODT preparation doesn’t work at all. I’ve been taking it for ten days, and have felt absolutely no effect. I’ve taken all of the others, which were efficacious, but I feel this brand is doing something shady.
My pharmacist said every brand is tested, but they can’t test every single pill.

I have been taking Adderall for the last 15 years. Sometimes I would get TEVA and other times Sandoz. For the last 3 months I have been taking Mallingckrod and I feel one like I am not taking anything! Not effect whatsoever! I went to see my doctor and he told me that amongst generic brands, not each of them has the same amount of active substances, and the variation is hugh! He told me TEVA is the best and that you can tell the pharmacist no to give you certain brand. That mallinckrodt is making me sleepier and the only things I have gained since starting are, head aches and weight

Mallinckrodt is absolute GARBAGE. Scatterbrain, nervousness, moodiness and headaches. Do they think we are stupid??? I want to report this to the FDA. Can we get a CLASS ACTION SUIT started? Please let me know.

Mallinckrodt is HORRIBLE. Did nothing except gave me HEADACHES! I've noticed past 20 years that ALL of the Co's that produce generics keep changing the formulas (adding in more crap (fillers) that cost them less $$, thinking we wont know the difference)...

I’ve taken adderall 30 mg For decades and various manufacturers generic Adderall since They have been available on the market. This manufactures medication has absolutely no effect whatsoever and with narcolepsy one needs to be able to stay awake when doing any activity that could prove dangerous if one fell asleep – driving, using any sort of electrical equipment, or even being a responsible parent and trying to take care of children.

I may as well be drinking water – I’ve needed to seek out other manufactures generic adderall at local pharmacies and buy it cash until my insurance will kick in again later this month Because the bottle of the Mallonkrodt product is garbage. This is a total rip off and abuse of hard-working consumers of the pharmaceutical industry

Yes, it happened to me just a few days ago. The pharmacy didn't even tell me that it was an entirely different looking pill either. I've been having bad headaches all weekend long since taking this brand, I've been moody too. Call the pharmacy and the owner has contacted the manufactory and fda to report my side effects, and I've called my dr. They're trying to work it out where I can go to my dr and give her what pills I have left, I only took 5, and give me a new script, and the manufacturer is going to reimburse the pharmacy so I won't have to pay for this new script bcuz my insurance sure isn't going to pay for a 2nd one. So hopefully they can work it out!

I am currently going through this too. This is not in my head! I've taken generic adderrall for years like your various ones, i was given 20 mg Mallinckrodt and thought they looked funny when I got home I googled. Found this and it explains why I feel horrible. Something is very wrong and I'm extremely worried.

EXACTLY! Just posted similar comment on other comment page, here, somewhere... Walmart gave me this generic, usually get Barr/Teva from Sams. (they were out). One pill later... nothing, nada, rien! One pill & the difference is already obvious! Will call Sams & see if they've changed. Who needs this crap, as if ADD isn't bad enough!!!
