You can develop a tolerance to Adderall over time, and it may lose its efficacy. Have you tried taking breaks or "holidays" from this medication?
I have used the generic, and it is definitely NOT as good as the brand. You can always try a different stimulant, like Dexedrine, Ritalin, Focalin, etc.
Before I give you my honest opinion, I'm sure you know that everyone reacts differently to medications. In my experience, I had no luck with brand name Adderall XR 30mg twice daily. I had horrible side effects the first week and discontinued. You mentioned that your pdoc put you on 10mg IR Adderall. Have you discussed with your pdoc about switching to Adderall IR only? I take 30mg 2x's daily and feel great plus these are generics. If you do need acidic food or drink, take the Adderall one hour before or two hours after the acidic products. I was recently diagnosed at age 34 and it takes a lot of trial and error with these meds. I was first started on Vyvanse which was great in the beginning, but after a few months at the highest dosage, it lost its 12-15 hr effect.
