I think you may be mixing up the IR v. Spanules. This was covered in the beginning of this post. To be clear, by "IR" I'm referring to "Immediate Release" or what you're calling the "tablet".

Whether your doc writes Dextrostat or Dexedrine, if there is no "ER" or "Spansules" behind that name, then you're getting the same Barr generic. That's it -- your ony option, BARR, period.

If the text "ER" or "Spansules" (et al) is present, then you're going to receive an extended release capsule that is *not* limited to one brand (yet the point of the original post was referring to IR specifically).

The fact that there are two names (Dextrostat v. Dexedrine) is inconsequential. I do hear 100% what you're saying, and I'm also not intending to argue. I'm simply trying to explain what I've learned after exhausting every option, hoping there was some sort of variation of d-amphetamine that remains on the market.

Unfortunately, for IR (tablets), the *only* option, whether Dextrostat or Dexedrine, is the Barr generic. And herein lies the problem, because the Barr generic is terrible (which many people here attest to).

Capsules (extended release), again, are an entirely different story.
