Why is COR 135 (Adderall Generic) has taken the place of Teva Pharmaceuticals USA (Adderall Generic)? The COR 135 has a bad side effect for me mentally & physically I had to travel many CVS to find the Adderall Generic Teva Pharmaceutical USA I was use to taking. This COR 135 is in all the pharmacies in Jacksonville. Why? when what I was taking work best for me
You mean those new orange ones? There round I think.
The Cor 135's are the pink 20 mg IR, right? What I've noticed while comparing pills with fellow ADHDers, well only 3 of my friends, is that we all received different pills for the same medication. This was when we were all taking 10 mg of Adderall generic, yet all of our pills were different. I think this was because we all filled at different pharmacies. Maybe, and this is a complete theory, drug manufacturers make deals with big name pharmacies. You know, "We will sell you our newer line of generic Adderall for cheaper if you agree to start filling all scripts with our pill," kind of a thing. I miss the days when you could still call the pharmacy and ask if they had a certain brand of medication, now almost every pharmacy will refuse to tell you what they carry, especially for medications that score in a certain drug category.
Different manufacturers will put different additives in the same med. This makes the drug absorb differently and can cause problems for some. The pharmacies supplier probably got a better deal from that manufacturer, so they took it. The next time they buy it it might be a different company.
Evidently the suppliers for your local pharmacies got a better deal. Definitely they get who offers the best price! There are many different manufacturers for a generic med, and each one uses different inactive ingredients. If you were to have an allergy or insensitivity to one of those ingredients, you could go around to pharmacies and ask if they have the manufacturer you prefer. or could see if they can get it from their supplier. It can't hurt to ask. I have an allergy to an inactive ingredient so I have to find all 19 of my medications by manufacturer. It's crazy! - EJ23
I had this same switch happen to me. The oval ones from Teva worked much better for me. They also switched my Divalproex Sodium (generic Depakote) from Sun to Mylan and I am having problems with that now. My psychiatrist says that you can request that the pharmacy order the brand you prefer and most will do it for you. My psychiatrist said that if they didn't do it to have them call her and she would make the request. Haven't tried it yet, but I will be doing so soon.
The company that was making it stopped. I agree that the alternatives are horrible.
