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. 

Update:

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
