I noticed some of the pills (though of the same dosage) have sometime an NRP imprint or S489 imprint on the other side of the pill. To me, the ones with S489 are like placebo! Anyone else noticed or sensed this?? I am over-senstive and very alert to how medicine works. Thanks.
Vyvanse NRP vs Vyvanse S489?

Call your manufacturer first! Write the lot number and date the prescription was filled even before you call.
Just since Feb-March 2020 my local pharmacies volume of prescriptions, vaccines, etc. has exploded, and I believe local pharmacists, pharmacy techs need all the relief you can give them.
Manufacturers are more likely to hear about issues, or questions about products as they receive reports from across the entire country.
Always ask & record the name or employee # or ID # if the person won't share their name, the day/ date & time of your call whether you call your pharmacy or manufacturer.
Different companies have different names for the same employee: product safety, customer support, customer service, help, etc; if the Rx product has large annual sales it may have a dedicated group of employees in a section just for that specific product.
Never hesitate to ask your contact to repeat something, or to speak more slowly, or to spell words you don't know.
If you call when the pharmacy is overwhelmed, buried w new and prescription refills, imagine the stress n inadvertent error possibility?
Depending on the Rx medication and online or telephone access to community groups, especially w pediatric and senior citizen Rx medications may also be a resource to consider?
If the information you receive just doesn't feel right, you have a "gut reaction" call at another day or time. Consider reporting your issues & concerns to the FDA, initially, before calling the manufacturer or your pharmacy. FDA has a toll-free number to call, as well as an online form you can complete, or print out and mail to the FDA.
Trust your senses, your intuition, whatever you call the basis of your reaction.
I’m looking for the same answer. The S489 are different for some reason. One thing is that the capsule coating is not as shiny as the other ones.
I noticed the capsule color and imprint changes with the dosage. As I have gone from 30 to 50,60, and 70… (as there is no FDA approved generic for Vyvanse).
Oh my God, yes! My son takes vyvanse 20 mg and has always done well on it. I refilled his prescription 2 days ago and noticed his behavior was different, unfocused and starting to have eye ticks. I checked his medicine to see if the pharmacy made a mistake and saw the S489 on the pill but the label said NRP 104. I believe their is definitely something different about the formulas. Now what am I going to do? The pharmacy says its the right medicine.
