I have taken Teva generic Adderall IR for over 10 years. Approximately three years ago, I think that they change their formula. The tablets themselves are smaller in size than they once were, they are less potent, unless efficacious. Has anyone else experienced the above mentioned with respect to Teva Adderall?
Teva generic Adderall IR - anyone noticed a decrease in efficacy and potency?

I have tried the following generic brands for Adderall IR
Core Pharma has always seemed very weak to me, although some people recently are posting the drug is different now. Warning, warning, warning… Avoid the generic Adderall manufacture

Believe me, the potency and efficacy of generic Teva IR Adderall, just recently, has changed profoundly. I am guessing they changed their formula
The Hatch-Waxman act allows generics a variance (based on comparing it to the BRAND)
can vary plus or minus 20%
And what is ridiculous is that when a generic company decides to submit an application to manufactur a drug, it is --their-- company that completes all the "testing" to prove to the FDA that their product is bioequivalent with the brand. The results from the generic company is never made available to the public.
DrKatz; as you know everyone is different and absorbs things differently. So far I have only seen good things about TEVA and to date, Teva has more than proven to be a good generic company. And one of the oldest. Nothing listed either at any of the drug sites. And with sch ii medications they have to be very tight the Dea really watches these ones.
I don't take Adderall but Ritalin.
These drugs are known to cause tolerance. It means the same dose doesn't work as well or not at all. You either need a higher dose or take a drug holiday. Letting your body go without it for awhile makes it feel effective again.
Talk to your doc.
Also if there has been weight gain or changes in hormones for whatever reasom may be the culprit.
