... Medication. It is counterproductive, I have found pharmacies closed mouth and doctors less helpful than they should be. What other medications that are still in the same group as adderall are put out by a better drug company I was taking the brand name adderall two 20 mg twice a day. Then when the name brand was unavailable I took the generic same dose. Now the generic and brand became unavailable so I was switched to 25 mg of adderall er cap. I have to go on a trip to my husbands family having no medication would be, well not good. I don't want to escalate my blood pressure with medication. Not being able to function well will probably raise it higher than medication will.
Well, in my opinion there is nothing quite like Adderall. It is a unique blend of 4 different amphetamines and the effects are different from anything else.
I have noticed that many meds are unavailable where I live. These have included Tylenol and Imodium. I've been told they are on back order. I guess we can add Adderall to the list. I doubt that it's gone for good.
I did some research for you, right here at drugs. com. I'm assuming all the Adderall ER Caps are available? They make Adderall ER in 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 mg. You said you normally take 2 of the regular 20 mg pills twice a day. So why can't you take 2 of the 20 mg ER caps twice a day? They just don't make a 40 mg ER. I think this is your best option. Find a way to get the ER (actually called XR) caps to equal the dose you were taking of the reg pills. Here is what I would do. Before you go speak to your doc, go to the pharmacy and ask what is available? Remember they are called Adderall XR when you speak to the pharmacists. Go to several different pharmacies and ask what is available, if you have to. But bring empty bottles of your old pills with you in pharmacies that don't know you. Adderall is a highly abused drug, and they may think you're a drug seeker. I also think you may have better luck in small privately owned pharmacies than in chain stores. If you can't find the 20 mg caps, think about things like two 30 mg and two 10 mg caps. Just so long as it equals 80 mg a day. I believe that any combination of XR caps will benefit you much better than switching to different drug.
Now one question. Is this the only problem, or is the issue the time release formula, as opposed to feeling all the amphetamines go into you at once?
