Please help. Generic adderall

Does anyone know a pharmacy around Cincinnati that has 20mg generic adderall from the pharmaceutical teva or Barr..(I know teva owns Barr) orange or peach. I live in Batavia and have only been able to find generic adderall from corepharma pink ones and I have a bad reaction to them. I've read on the teva website if the pharmacy doesn't carry the generic you like you can have them order it for you at no price. But all the pharmacists I've talked to say they can't and that they "get what they get". It's been almost a year since I've had these and I can't stand these corepharma ones anymore. I felt COMPLETELY normal on the teva (peach/orange)ones. And can actually stay focused for more than an hour unlike the pink ones. Please let me know!!

For real.? I thought they make a whole bunch at the beginning of the year for the whole year. Lame. They make my migraines worse, make me feel sick to my stomach and are just so weak and don't last long at all..for me anyways. :/ when's the last time you had them.

CVS's in the Los Angeles area just got a bunch in.  The TEVA's.  Don't know if it is national distribution or not but they just got them back in here.

I to do not like  the pink.I feel like it takes much longer to kick in and it is half the strength of the orange.Also I feel they make me a lil sick to my stomach.Recently my pharm didnt have enough to fill my script so i had to pick up the rest a couple weeks later.When i picked them up they were white.They hardly worked at all.I pay cash out of pocket,I have no insurance.So to pay so much for a script and it be no good really made me mad. So I started going to CVS and they carry the orange and there is a coupon online that helps you save.I think i saved 32 dollers.

The pink ones made by Corepharma are horrible. There is a shortage right now and the only manufacturer that is avail in my area is Corepharma.  When I take these pink ones, I feel jittery and do not get the calm & focused effect that the other brands provide. I hate these pink ones.

I agree with them being much weaker.

I completely agree!  I have been on generic adderall 20 mg twice daily for about 2 years now and they pharmacies I've used have always dispensed the orange round or football shaped ones.  But since there has been a shortage in the Metro Detroit area, I decided to give mail order, home delivery pharmacy a try.  And to my surprise I received for the first time, the pink ones which are by Corepharma... I've been taking them for about 2-3 weeks and have felt horrible and have had 2 migraines.  I can't focus good, I feel irritable, tired, moody, just everything. I wasn't sure if it was because of this change in generic or what, but after finding this forum and many other sites talking about the differences in generic Adderall, I'm certain its because this pink ones don't work, at least for me.  Ugh.  I want to use mail order again, but I hope they have another generic they can provide, not these pink ones. I have Expres Scripts mail order. Anyone happen to know if they have other generics available or if I can even request a different generic from them?
