Thank you for your question and welcome to ADHDCentral.com. I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.

I am assuming you are asking if there is any difference between the generic version and the brand name. Dr. Kenny Handleman explained this in a post on his site quite well, "Generic drug manufacturers are able to have a minor variation in how much of the medicine will be absorbed, but for most people, this will not have an impact. In my clinical experience, a small percentage of people are sensitive to the differences and may need to have the ‘brand name' medicine only. If that is the case, the doctor needs to write a prescription for Adderall XR NO SUBSTITUTION. When the words ‘no substitution' are there, it tells the pharmacist that only the original Adderall XR will do."

I hope this helps.
