I am prescribed methylphenidate/10mg, Carisoprodol/350mg and Diazepma/10 mg. Will this keep me from getting a job since they are legitimate prescriptions?

Verwon Says:

Methylphenidate is most commonly used to treat ADHD, shift work sleep disorder, narcolepsy.

The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, and anorexia.

Not, they should not interfere with you getting a job, Avita, but if they test, you should make sure they are aware of what you are taking, to avoid any problems. They may also require proof that they have been prescribed for you.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I was taking 20mg actavis mfg and now the pharmacy has switched to KVK mfg 20mg and I couldn’t tell that it was helping me at all.
Is there a difference why the pharmacy has switched to another mfg?

Mine switched too, and it does not work like Actavis. I am so sick of this. They keep changing and often times to crappy version. Actavis DAN was the best I was able to get. The Malinkrodt and the KVK suck.

Has anyone tried Methylphenidate Hydrochloride made by Camber? My feeling is that they are weak.

Have you been able to find a pharmacy that carries the Watson brand of Methylphenidate 20 MG? For the past eight years I've gotten it at Walgreens and now they carry a yellow colored generic (Camber???) that DOES NOT work...any suggestions GREATLY appreciated!!!!

Are methyphenid-e and methylphenidate the same thing? I'm on the latter, but found an old bottle of methylphenide-e in the safe.

My son takes 4 of these, 20 mg a day for narcolepsy. I'm wondering, are these out of stock also like the Adderall? A few days ago he got his at Walgreens and they gave him 2 different manufacturers pills, neither are any good. We live in northern IL.
