I recently went and filled my usual adderall 30mg prescription ,, however this time I opened the bottle and had some round light orange pills marked U31. I thought I had gotten the wrong meds by mistake but looked on the bottle and the description matched the pills so I then googled it and can't find any info on these new to me, not sure if they are actual new to everyone , adderall. I know they are generic. I'm wondering if anyone has taken them and how they work compared to other generics. I normally take the Barr brand and took my first dose of these this morning and FELL ASLEEP. This isn't good at all. Anyone have comments ???
I'm in the exact same boat you are. Was taking the Teva football shaped ones for a year or better and this month I decided to go to a different pharmacy than normal. This was with the intention of being given a different form of generic mainly due to forums like these bashing the Teva brand . Well... I received U31's manufactured by Aurolife Pharma. I've been taking them for 2 weeks now and my educated opinion is... they suck! The have the same style effect but it is more gradual and weaker at peak point. I have been backing my normal dosage of. 30mg with split ones at 15 mg increasing the daily intakes. I'm prescribed 90mg a day and have been getting into the 105-120mg a day range with the U31's. I'm going back to my Tevas next month, just hope I can get by until I'm able to refill. The only different manufacturer that I may try other than Teva would be Adderall itself.

Hello Catlover 24,
I got the same generic 2 days ago and it's my first time taking this generic. My opinion- it sucks. I decided to take it at night to see if there's any side affect since it's new to me. I took it at 6pm Friday's night and it made me so tired and sleepy. I thought maybe I was just really tired from being up so early that day and had a long rough day at work. I woke up the next day with a severe headache. I took another pill Saturday's morning at 9am. Within 30 minutes, it gave me the jitty feeling and very fatigue, unmotivated to do anything. It ruined my whole Saturday. I'm mad as hell today because I paid for my medication cuz I have no insurance. I called my pharmacist this morning and told them to never ever give me this medications due to the side effects it gives me. I also told them that If they don't have the generic that I normally get in stock, then direct me to another CVS that has it. There goes 90 bucks for a month supply of medication that does nothing for me. Waste of time and money.. This is the worst Adderall generic I've ever taken. Now I have to wait til tomorrow to call my doctor for a new RX. I hope this helps. Good luck to you..
Yeah the U31 Generic adderall is inferior to most of the other Generics of this particular Drug. My guess is you know this as now most individuals do, for some time. I don't understand how some Generic brands I have a hard time sleeping or staying asleep but with this one I can go to sleep and stay there! No Good at all in my opinion.Well of course you know I see your original question dates to 2014, so I am a bit late.
You guys that are saying these are bad. It is all in your head, the only differences are the fillers which are inactive and if anything will affect the absorption of the chemical and it will be so minute you could not tell.
Honestly this was the same thing that happened when people were saying the Mylan A4 Xanax 2mg pills were junk.
I work in the Pharmacology industry and the FDA has strict regulations on how much of the active chemical is in the medication. Plus amphetamines are extremely easy to make, anything made pharmaceutical grade is going to be of same quality.
Honestly its all in your head thinking these are weaker.
I have been taking Adderall 30mg for almost 4 years and in that time I have almost always received the round pink tabs manufactured by Corepharma. Eight days ago I filled my script at Dillons and since then have broke out in a rash all over, have been sweating profusely and my ADHD symptoms have returned. I have had problems before with the fillers generic manufacturers use but have never been able to figure out what additive causes this. Obviously it is in this new peach pill. So now I have to call around everywhere to find out what pharmacy still has and will continue to order from Corepharma because Dillons/Krogers supplier is contracted with Aurobindo Pharma now, the suppliers of this "fake" adderall.
There are people making these pills with pill presses homemade and using all kinds of different chemicals but mainly methamphetamine I've had homemade ones as a buddy of mine got them sent to him in the mail and I couldn't really tell the difference it seem like these ones are stronger but anyone can press those pills so if your pills fall apart very easily and look cheaply made they could be fakes nowadays I don't know about back in 2014 probably was happening then too
I don't know what type you were taking prior to getting the U31 pills. However, I have found from personal experience that Teva b 974 and 30 on the other side are better. They are orange oval (football) shaped. If you are getting your prescriptions from CVS, you will get the U31 pills. If you are concerned about getting your old pills then I would suggest calling other pharmacies in your area and ask if they have your script or the above Teva b 974 orange tablets. I think it has to do with the "fillers" in the medication. I also heard that the original Adderall had three salts. They used three salts due to a patterning law. I was told this, so I do not know if it is correct. I think the Teva b 974 are the best out there. I have taken Cor and U31 Adderall tablets. They do not work good for me. Everyone is different. So, if you can find the type you use to get then I would go that route. If not, then try calling around and finding the above ones.
Your pharmacy only orders x amount of each drug. You could of hit them when they were out and on back-order. Next time, ask the pharmacist if they have your type prior to filling. Once you walk out they can not take them back, for obvious reasons. You probably know that but just trying to help you out.
Also, companies change contracts. So, once the contract ends your pharmacy may decide to do business with a different manufacturer/contractor.
Hope this helps.
Don't know where you live so I can't suggest any pharmaceutical company's.
I am dealing with the exact thing I took two 30 mg U-31 so I had 60 mg in my body and fell asleep. I deal with narcolepsy and will fall asleep while grocery shopping?! What happened to the real deal? I need the truth on these meds until 3 months ago I never had a problem I was taking COR 136. What has happened to the 'real adderal'
I was in the grocery store and was falling asleep, people were coming up to me asking if I was ok, it was embarasing for me.
I also recently received the u30 pill or 20mg IR amph. Salt mixture by Aurolife Pharma, LLC. In my opinion, the effects are EXACTLY the same as any of the myriad of generics I have been presecribed. However, the effects manifest themselves in different ways. For example, the u30 is a subtle yet focused effect that is perhaps longer as compared to a Teva 20mg. The Mallinckdroft 20mg is definitely composed of unusual fillers because the pills would dissolve in my mouth and practically break apart if I put a little pressure on them. These, also, felt “weak” but they lasted longer. It’s as if you are trading strength for time, so to speak.
Now, I’m not a big fan of IRs and personally prefer the XRs because I like the long-lasting effect for my day. The brand name Adderall XR in 25mg was absolutely useless to me. I took my usual dose and felt drowsy and fell asleep about an hour later. I have tried them many times, sometimes even later on in the day. I can’t believe that the brand-name Adderall would be stronger than a generic Zolpidem. Moreover, the side-effects were horrendous. I would become extremely angry and irritable until the Adderall effect’s wore off. Now when I switched out to the generic 25mg XR amphetamine salt combo, the difference was night and day. I was back to my normal self and the effects were just as they had always been. I didn’t do any sort of research about Adderall XR as this was the “real-deal”, so I think my opinion is unbiased. I think it might be an issue of formulation and mixture of fillers. Or a paradoxical effect such as when I take lorazepam and feel emotionally tense unlike with clonazepam which has the desired and expected effect.
