It’s strange to call TEVA the ‘brand name’ adderall. I believe it is generic. I take it without any side effects, although I took auribindo generic and got really sick from it. There is a ADHD forum somewhere on the internet that has an entry by a biochemist who takes adderall. He says it’s the ‘filler’ material that can make you sick, and he listed the various generics and provided information about what fillers they use, and his own recommendations. Of course, what is more “elegant” (that’s a pharmacy term for ‘effectiveness) for one person may not be for another. Another problem is that drug companies keep buying out other drug companies, so the medicine might be different even though the name of the generic company may stay the same.
