Warning: in this situation of Adderall shortage, some pharmacists are filling prescriptions with formulations of the medication other than that prescribed, and sometimes without notifying the doctor or the patient. The patient may begin to get new side effects or less efficiency without understanding why. Always check the label on your prescription.
At least 57 % of adult ADHDers will respond as well to methylphenadite (Ritalin et al) as to the amphetamines (Adderal et al), so maybe you can just try switching.
Added Information O the Day:
Checking the label and the pills is a good idea for any prescription.
Generic forms of any medication are almost always cheaper than the brand names (methylphenidate, Ritalin). They are supposed to be just as good and usually are, but not always. For example, they may contain the same medication but a different filler which can affect the rate of absorption. Further, the generic versions may be different from different companies. Pharmacies often change the company they are dispensing from to obtain the lowest price, and you may have problems from that change. Fortunately, these various difficulties are uncommon.
