I received Epic adderall today. I opened the bottle and noticed they were obviously different. My first thought was I truly hope whatever manufacturer these are made by, is an improvement from the awful brands I’ve recently gotten. I then decided to look at the brand. When I read “ epic” i knew right then that were going to be somehow even worse. What kind of name is epic. I was waiting for Ashton Kutcher to jump
My last reply here was April, I believe- I’ve read all the new posts and it’s a shame that so many people’s lives and well-being just do not matter when we make our complaints. I’m now going through a divorce and custody battle and I’m in no way blaming this on the new generic but I will say this- I could really benefit from having a generic that works right now. I’ve relocated 2 hours from where I lived, finding a job, custody drop off pick up( 2 hrs) away every week, lawyer appointments, organizing my paperwork, the expenses, and to top it off- the courts consider our case a high conflict situation and I have to document everything and anything- plus get it to my lawyer. I was a stay home mom in August, my routine has been turned upside down and not seeing my toddler every other week is like a knife in my heart. Basically a NIGHTMARE for one with adult ADHD. I’m keeping up with it all but I’m working overtime fighting against my executive malfunctioning. The Right Adderall not only helped with my ADD but also anxiety. I was willing to try vyvanse in the morning and 1 adder all in the afternoon in hopes it would be some relief but unfortunately everyone is different. I’ve been down the vyvanse road in the past and other stimulants and adderall twice daily has always been what My adhd is managed best by/ having minimal side effects. The medicine that works , that all of us here benefit from is now garbage. I’ll figure some way to get through this and life thereafter without adderall- of course but it’s really such a shame that we all have to suffer, knowing that once we did have medication that allowed us to function in a way that those without ADHD do easily. Adulting is 10X harder for us and We simply do not matter when we complain. I appreciate everyone here. I hate you all are having to go through this issue but at least we can all relate.
People have been filing complaints for at least a decade about this. I feel like it’s only gotten worse in spite of people, like us, making the complaint. I’m no pessimist but I feel like every time I try to reach out to doctors and filing complaints to FDA, that it falls on deaf ears. More times than not, filling my prescription is met with some “problem” or delay in being filled. I’ve been treated like my ADHD isn’t real and my doctor prescribed medication that I use medicinally, is unnecessary. I will file a new complaint anyway though- I Have just enough hope left that a change can happen. When my medication is right for me, my life is substantially improved. When medicine is wrong,my symptoms are worse than ever( rebound adhd I suppose). Let me know if you receive any feedback from your complaint and I’ll update everyone here as well.
notcrazynora Good luck with your medication this month- Please keep us updated and I’ll do the same! Everything you said is right and all the excuses in the world doesn’t make these issue we are all Having with bad genetics ok.
Yep! I picked up my monthly prescription not even a week ago and noticed immediately that I wasn’t feeling my best. After days of felling “off” I decided to check my medicine bottle and see if the manufacturer of my daily Adderall had changed and causing this. I’ve had situations like this over the years and try to avoid the pharmacy that carries whatever generic is wrong for me. Everyone seems different but I have the bed results on Teva Adderall. They really tricked me this month by making these Elite Lab pills look like my regular teva pills. This is so irritating!! we all know the manufacturer makes a difference and they aren’t all the same- I don’t know why they keep changing which manufactured Adderall they stock all the time. I mean how many different manufacturers are there now? ON MY NERVES!! yes I’m being a little childish but I don’t feel great and my adhd symptoms aren’t being managed
The original name brand changed my life and I had close to 4 wonderful years with my symptoms well under control. Then something definitely changed. This month I unfortunately was filled some CVS that does absolutely nothing for my executive functioning. I haven’t accomplished much of anything this month. My laundry is piled up and the dishes are now. I forgot to schedule a couple appointments and just feel very hyper. Opinions on the brand that is most like the original?? I can’t wait to get my new script filled in 4 days.
