The FDA has issued a warning about counterfeit generic Adderall tablets that are being sold over the Internet.
The fake product claims to be Teva Pharmaceutical’s 30-mg generic form of the drug, but it does not contain any of the four active ingredients in the genuine product, which is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.
Instead of dextroamphetamine saccharate, amphetamine aspartate, dextroamphetamine sulfate, and amphetamine sulfate, the tablets contain tramadol and acetaminophen, a combination approved for the treatment of acute pain both in generic form and branded as Ultracet.

Sometimes, it feels like I’m too tired to do anything but lay on the couch… it would be so easy right now… Especially since I chipped a tooth today.
I picked this picture ‘cause it fits the past week- I’m proud of myself- been doing a lot of self- advocacy and political advocacy and feel good about the outcomes.
Still, the pain…
I write about my health because
Eventually, no one wants to hear all the daily whines of being me
Something might strike a chord with someone else
Because it makes me feel heard
Because it makes me feel validated
Because I’ve never had success with therapy.
Their eyes look at mine
And pry into my soul
Paper doesn’t do that
Nor does the internet
If someone reads my writing, that’s great.
If they don’t, it’s therapy for me.
I write for me
I write for you
I write because no one judges my words, or asks me “how that makes me feel.”
i write about my health because it’s cathartic, and perhaps that’s enough to keep me going as a health activist.
