Adderall Generic?

I have noted elsewhere on this forum that Adderall is not available in SA. These posts were a few years back, consequently would like to know if the position is still as such and if so are there any generics available locally.Failing this, what would the next best option iro prescription drug availability in SA be, iro treating ADHD in a 50yr old adult that has no allergies or other health problems.

Hi Gus

Adderall is a combo of dextroamphetamine and amphetamine salts and is still not available. Your best option locally is Methylphenidate containing products i.e. Concerta or Ritalin LA, or Atomoxetine containing products, i.e. Strattera - All of these are available in formulations for adult use too.
