They aren't different medications, they are both just Methylphenidate, APO and Sandoz just refers to the manufacturers.

This medication may cause side effects, such as: nausea, headache, dizziness and insomnia.

Reggie, Methylphenidate is the active ingredient in Methylin, but it is the generic for it. You have the same medication, in the same dosage, but there can be some fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient between the name brand and the generic, so that may be what is causing your problem.

Have you contacted your doctor about it?
