Northstar Adderall IR??

I usually receive Mallinckrodt IR 20mg. but today my script was filled with Northstar. Iíve never even heard of it and apparently neither has their website.

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with this generic?

Re: Northstar Adderall IR??

First day on Northstar went very well! Seems like it’s going to be the most efficacious generic adderall, I’ve ever had, if today is an accurate indicator. Looking forward to taking my next dose tomorrow morning.

Re: Northstar Adderall IR??

Northstar Adderall IR 20 mg. is by far the best generic I’ve ever had. Lovin’ it!

Re: Northstar Adderall IR??

Any updates since then? Are you still convinced Northstar is your favorite when compared to Mallinckrodt?

I've been taking 20 MG IR from Mallinckrodt for the past 10 months but received a bottle today from Northstar. Feeling a bit nervous about the switch since Mallinkro was working well for me. Do you take the full 20 MG at once?

I'm in California and pick up my medication at Costco Pharmacy.

I am convinced that Northstar works very well for me. Iím prescribed 20mg 2x a day. I usually take only 20mg in the morning at once and normally skip my afternoon dose.

I also get my script filled at Costco in Florida. I just moved to another city in FL and my new Costco only has Teva. I may have to get my Dr to e-scribe my script to my old Costco and have a friend pickup it up and mail them to me.

Iíll be anxious to hear what you think of Northstar. I hope you find it as efficacious as I do. Please post your experience here after you try Northstar.

Thanks

Re: Northstar Adderall IR??

Feeling a bit relieved since day one went well with Northstar! No adverse side effects. Crossing my fingers it's consistent moving forward.

Before sending the e-script, I would confirm with your old Costco pharmacy whether or not they still carry the generic brand you want. I, too, recently moved to a new city in CA and figured I'd get my prescription sent to my old location to maintain the same brand. However, my old pharmacists told me that all the Costco pharmacies purchase from the same distributor which generally means that the pharmacies carry the same generic brands across the state. Then again, perhaps this is only applicable to California?

Glad to hear day one went well!

It’s worth checking with my old Costco for sure. Both my old and new pharmacist gave me their spiel on how Costco negotiates their best price and that’s who they go with across the state. I asked my new pharmacist how long they have been carrying Teva. She said over a year. I informed her that my old Costco has carried Mallinckrodt for the past couple years and just switched to Northstar last month.
She just scratched her head and said “that’s odd.”

Re: Northstar Adderall IR??

Make sure your old pharmacy will let your friend pick it up for you. Don't know the rules for that sort of thing. I always pick mine up in person at the pharmacy, since I was told Meds by Mail doesn't do stimulants. The pharmacy always checks my ID.

I was planning on calling and explaining the situation to make sure. Iím surprised Costco isnít actually more strict. My wife normally takes my script there to be filled and is able to pick it up without my permission or authorization. They check her ID and can see we have the last name. Apparently, thatís good enough. Thankfully, I have no concerns with her getting my Adderall filled for me and I appreciate it.

Costco is taking a big risk though. If she were an addict they could have a very big problem. Iím just amazed how easy she can have a controlled substance filled on my behalf without my knowledge or approval.
