Hi Rob:

Technically, they are supposed to be identical, but unfortunately, parts of the pill that are not the prescribed drug itself can cause reactions in people. That is to say, the parts that make up the pill itself, the fillers, so you can absorb the Adderall. The FDA determines that each drug has to contain the exact amount of Adderall that is on the label.

I don't know what the difference would be between the pink and the blue, but found this forum that indicated that the blue one is no better.

The best you can do, is call different pharmacies and ask what color their generic drugs are. Better yet, speak with your pharmacist and your doctor about this. If they won't listen to you, find ones who will.

Best of luck,

Same thing happens which tones of generics. Fact: generics may be 20% +/- of the supposed dose. Also always break the pill(unless its an XR). I get better, MUCH better pain releif from Vicodin ES(7.5 of narcotic)made by Malinkrodt that from R Norcos(20mgs if narcotic) by Qualitest. But breaking the generic pills raises chances of active ingr. to be absorbed. As of adderall in my experience: "brr" ones are the best. They have like a "b" sign on them. Reply
