Dude, yes, same experience here. Mylan really doesn't work that well... I get melancholoy/listless on it.. i'm upset cus I don't have the inner clarity I want and that I get from the other stimulants. It's like it's missing an essential ingredient of some sort. There's other benefits to it though.

Hey, this is REALLY helpful to know as I've been looking all over for it. How do you figure out something like that? Did a pharmacist tell you that?

You can check out the FDA's website which lists current drug shortages as well as those to be discontinued by certain manufacturers.

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

So, I'm going to ask my p-doc about switching my XR med, maybe to the spansules because IR Dex (Zenzedi) has been so helpful. So far I seem to have issues with extended release meds.

Anyway, I looked at dailymed.nlm.nih.gov/dailymed/druginfo page and apparently Impax and Lineage make the authorized generics of the now gone brand name Dexedrine Spansules.

It's interesting to see that these two have way less inactive ingredients than all the other generics according to this page's info. And there's some bizarre inactive ingredients in some of these Dex generics! Check it out.

Anyone try Impax or Lineage Dex ER?

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

I've tried the impax generic and was not a fan. I found the troublesome side effects outweighed any benefits. Now this was the impax generic, not the more expensive proclaimed brand that looks identical, of which they also manufacture. If you do try impax generic I hope your experience is different--and if you try their name branded vesrion keep us posted.

Term Definition
Drug Patent A drug patent is assigned by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and assigns exclusive legal right to the patent holder to protect the proprietary chemical formulation. The patent assigns exclusive legal right to the inventor or patent holder, and may include entities such as the drug brand name, trademark, product dosage form, ingredient formulation, or manufacturing process A patent usually expires 20 years from the date of filing, but can be variable based on many factors, including development of new formulations of the original chemical, and patent infringement litigation.
Drug Exclusivity Exclusivity is the sole marketing rights granted by the FDA to a manufacturer upon the approval of a drug and may run simultaneously with a patent. Exclusivity periods can run from 180 days to seven years depending upon the circumstance of the exclusivity grant.
RLD A Reference Listed Drug (RLD) is an approved drug product to which new generic versions are compared to show that they are bioequivalent. A drug company seeking approval to market a generic equivalent must refer to the Reference Listed Drug in its Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA). By designating a single reference listed drug as the standard to which all generic versions must be shown to be bioequivalent, FDA hopes to avoid possible significant variations among generic drugs and their brand name counterpart.
AB Products meeting necessary bioequivalence requirements. Multisource drug products listed under the same heading (i.e., identical active ingredients(s), dosage form, and route(s) of administration) and having the same strength (see Therapeutic Equivalence-Related Terms, Pharmaceutical Equivalents) generally will be coded AB if a study is submitted demonstrating bioequivalence. In certain instances, a number is added to the end of the AB code to make a three character code (i.e., AB1, AB2, AB3, etc.). Three-character codes are assigned only in situations when more than one reference listed drug of the same strength has been designated under the same heading. Two or more reference listed drugs are generally selected only when there are at least two potential reference drug products which are not bioequivalent to each other. If a study is submitted that demonstrates bioequivalence to a specific listed drug product, the generic product will be given the same three-character code as the reference listed drug it was compared against.

Currently on Actavis 15mg 4x Day. Seems to work, but I often wonder about trying Vyvanse.

Why switch to a med which yields the same active drug, but at a much weaker level?

Wondering,
Ian

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

The only one I've tried (and was just prescribed Dex ER for the first time several days ago!) is Mylan. It works well until uncomfortable headaches come on after four hours.

I'm wondering if brand Dexedrine Spansules might not cause this. I've had a history of having trouble with certain generics, or else their inactive ingredients (and Mylan has A LOT). Has anyone tried to get brand spansules ordered by your pharmacy? If it was a chain, which one? CVS said they couldn't get them when I stopped by after my p-doc appointment. I know they won't tell this info over the phone; they only told me because my e-script was there already.

Anyone know what generic Walgreen's and Rite-Aid tend to use for Dex ER? Maybe another generic won 't cause the headaches. I like how I don't feel melancholy anymore when my pm booster (Zenzedi) wears off. When I was taking Zenzedi 3x a day, I was morose three hours after taking my third dose. Now, with the Dex ER in the AM, my PM Zenzedi dose wears off without mood crashes.

I 'm hoping that brand ER, or a different generic, will solve my headache issue. I couldn't figure out how to dose Zenzedi all day without the end-of-the-day sadness (anyone deal with this?). Hopefully this will just be an issue of switching pharmacies.

I don't know what Rite-Aid has, but Walgreens tends to have Teva/Barr, which I took for years without a problem.

Cheers,

Re: Generic Dexedrine ER Manufacturers

I've been going around for days now looking for an answer as to why I feel so irritable lately. The 3pm swing and the hateful rage demon emerge constantly and being a spansule veteran for years now, I'm very familiar with those effects. I feel stupid for not considering that I had switched from Actavis to Mallinkrodt generics.
