Why is the Generic form of Adderall not as good as the actual thing?

I'm on the generic form of Adderall and it doesn't help like Adderall itself. 

I can tell the difference. I'd take the actual stuff if my insurance would cover most of it. I refuse to pay over $200 for it. 


I've been on it half my life and it helps me so much. My brain isn't trying to multitask as bad as it usually does without it. 

The only times I dont take it is when I pregnant.

    Placebo Effect.

    The chemical composition is identical. The effects should be the same.

    We had a similar problem with Bayer Aspirin (R),  When it went generic. many people claimed the generics were not working as well. [including me.]

    You probably got a lower dosage. You should consider getting off adderall, its pretty bad for you and highly addictive
