The FDA has issued a warning to consumers about counterfeit Adderall being sold online. The FDA warns consumers not to purchase any medication online that does require them to have a prescription. Doing so is both illegal and dangerous to your health. Two consumers alerted the FDA about the fake tablets after they purchased them from an online pharmacy.
For your safety and the safety of others please be aware that Adderall pills are round, orange/peach in color and are imprinted with “dp” on one side and 30 on the other side of the tablet. The tablets are packaged in bottles. The active ingredients in authentic Adderall tablets are dextroamphetamine saccharate, amphetamine aspartate, dextroamphetamine sulfate and amphetamine sulfate. An analysis of the counterfeit tablets revealed they contained tramadol and acetaminophen, both used to treat acute pain, and they were in blister packages. – CNN –
