    My local Walgreens used to carry the name brand as well but not anymore.

    I’m in same boat and couldn’t agree with you more but be careful switching pharmacies cause I’m finding they all have switched to cheapest generic available. Hey I get it they are a business they want to make most money they can but when (going by what I’ve just read online on many sites) the new generic is garbage then they should be doing something about it.

    Activis who sold to Teva or Mallinkroft Inc. are only effective brands I’ve found. I called Activis now Teva pharmaceuticals and told “sorry we stopped manufacturing IR methylphenidate”. Mallinkroft still manufactures but every big chain pharmacy refuses to order and replaced with cheap generic horrible brand (s). Even though doctor writes on prescription to fill only with name brand they refuse to order it.

    Glad I’m not the only one going thru this. I totally agree. Cvs is the worst place matter a fact all the “big name” pharmacies have all gone to the cheapest, non effective crap generic brand and there’s more than one out there now that activis/Teva stopped making IR methylphenidate. Over the 8 years I’ve had no issues getting either mallinkroft or activis/teva brand meds up until 2019. New yellow tablets are garbage, non effective not to mention gives migraines. I don’t understand why when my doctor specifically writes on the prescription “fill only with name brand” that CVS, RITEAID, WALMART, and many local privately owned pharmacies refuse to order/follow a doctors order but that is what I’ve been dealing with for months. Last I checked pharmacies aren’t MD’s their job is to fill/follow a doctor’s order/script I thought anyway. I pay A LOT of money every month for my health insurance coverage not to mention the copays for meds, dr. visit etc. as a patient I gave every right to call and ask what brand each pharmacy has yet when doing so I get attitude from 9 outta 10 pharmacies. I’m not trying to fill early ever nothing shady at all and I’m not calling about a heavy duty opiate so not sure why I’m being treated the way I have been. Walmart refuses to even tell you what brand they have! That’s just ridiculous.
