Round bluish white pill K 101

Yes, I take Methylphenidate 10mg, but the pharmacy gave me a generic for it and this is the first time I have used this one. The pill is light blue almost white in color, scored and has a "K" on top and a # "101" on the bottom. I can't seem to find any info on this pill. The other problem is it kind of makes me sleepy, so it has a reverse effect? Can you identify this pill for me? Thank you. ## Hi TJ, Sorry to hear about the pill making you sleepy. In many cases, the effects of various medications have been known to backfire. Maybe your body is still acclimating to the different fillers? A round pale green pill imprinted with K over 101 (separated by a scoreline) on one side and blank on the other is reportedly identified as Methylphenidate Hydrochloride 10 mg. NDC: ...

What Pharmacy Carries Sandoz 20 Mg Methylphenidate Hcl besides CVS

I am losing it trying to find a pharmacy other than CVS that carries the Sandoz brand of 20mg Methylphenidate hcl. I have tried most independent pharmacies and none of the major chains seem to have them. I called Walmart, Walgreens, Costco, Neighborcare, Riteaid, Safeway Pharmacy, SuperFresh Pharmacy, a bunch of small independents as well as a few epic pharmacies. The only reason I dont go to CVS is because They have to order it, I have been out for 3 days now, and there cash price is higher than anyone in town. I take three 20mg hcl tabs a day. Plus, my mother is one of the pharmacy techs at my neighborhood pharmacy and has been in recovery for 12 years and would go crazy if she new I was being prescribed generic ritalin. Although I have never had a substance abuse problem, and she kno...

It is methylphenidate: 10 mg pill is a round, white pill scored twice (in a cross) so the pill can be split into four pieces. the other side is scored with the company logo. the pill is manufactured in mexico by Psicofarma. ## What is difference between Xanax and Ritalin based on pill image?

Methylphenidate is similar to Vyvanse?

My 8 year old is on methylphenidate 27 mg (concerta) and doing very well with it, but I have had many problems with his clinic. His next appointment will be in 2 weeks, and his medication won't last! I have vyvanse 10 mg from the last time he was taking those. My question is can he take vyvanse until his appointment date? Is vyvanse similar or not? I don't know about this type of medication much ....but I don't think it's good just to stop it because the "clinic" has failed too many times to do their job! I know we can go to ER, but this medication needs prior authorization and last time I did that, I got a prescription but the doctors at ER were too busy to do the prior authorization so in the end I couldn't get any... ## They are similar medications that ar...

GG 790 Round Pill

I found a small round pill that says "gg" on one side and the other side is scored with "790" on it. Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated - concerned mother ## I found a round yellow tablet line on one side to cut tablet in half and A79 enbossed on the other side.The A is rounded on the apex.. ## I noticed this site had great ?'s but few answers, so being bored as I am, I will ans the ? about expiration date and Medicine. Anytime there is a ex date, it should be aknowledged as the date you want to refer to in taking meds. Now, if it has never had a seal broken, this may give you some extra time in regards to freshness. It would probably serve as 6mo date. Take meds only through the severity of the condition you are taking it for and then discard the r...

There Are Three Manufacturers Who Make Methylphenidate

The 3 Manufacturers are Mallinkrodt/Methylin, Sandoz and Watson Pharmaceuticals. On this day, December 3,2011 I learned that if a generic drug is back ordered in lots of different Pharmacies our HMO's will pay for the drug that is prescribed. All who are prescribed Methylphenidate 20 mg. are being turned away by CVS, RiteAid, including the pharmacies in some Giant food stores . If you are prescribed both forms of this drug do not let the Pharmacist fill one part of your prescriptions and if both are on 1 prescription sheet never trust anyone to complete the refill. They'll fill the one they have and as far as the other part, you lose! ## Finally my pharmacy failure has been explained. I went to my CVS Pharmacy and Talked with the manager about the crisis of this back order defen...

what pill is round scored on one side with 790 on the front and GG on the back

I'm not sure of the color but I believe it is a light yellow. ## Based on your description, I located the pill to be a 20 mg Methylphenidate HCL tablet. And yes, the pill color is a light yellow. Methylphenidate is the most commonly prescribed psychostimulant and is indicated in the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and narcolepsy. To view information about this drug, please click on the link below... Do you have any more questions or information to add? Please post back if you do. ## I have ADHD and narcolepsy. Dr won’t give me a refill of Provigil because I found out I have bipolar a few months ago. I get it because I need to be awake during the day for my kids and asleep at night.

Camber Brand Methylphenidate 10mg

My pharmacy recently switched brands for my Methylphenidate 10mg and I swear I could be swallowing placebo. This medication does not work. I’m looking to see if anyone else has had this problem? ## Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus, or minus 20% of the active ingredient, the FDA considers that to be an acceptable therapeutic window. In most cases, the difference are minuscule and no one notices, but some people are sensitive to medications and can run into other problems. Another reason for a problem could be too broad of a difference, since in reality that is a 40% window for difference. For example, the one you were taking previous might have been high in the amount of the active ingredient, say it was actua...
