Methylphenidate questions / generic recommendations

Can I have some information on this drug? ## I am prescribed methylphenidate/10mg, Carisoprodol/350mg and Diazepma/10 mg. Will this keep me from getting a job since they are legitimate prescriptions? ## 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...

Apo Methylphenidate

I have been diagnosed with ADHD and Bi-polar disease. My Dr. gave me 2 different meds which are Apo-methylphenidate and Sandoz-Methylphenidate. What is the difference between these 2 meds and why are they giving me 2 different ones? ## 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. Learn more: Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have been taking methylin er 20 mg. for 2 years.

methylphenidate hcl 20mg

pink tablet 585 ## Check your imprint again. Is there a letter or a sign or another number on it as well? ## An oval pink tablet with just the numbers 585 on it is manufactured by Sun Pharma Global and they list it as containing 40mgs of Rosuvastatin, which is used to help lower cholesterol. NDC code: 47335-0585 The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and joint/muscle aches. Is there anything I can help with? ## Is this a reliable generic?

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...

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...

Sandoz Methylphenidate Availability

Can anyone tell me if they have completely stopped making Methylphenidate 20 mg? Just the regular tablet. Not the extended release / yellow round tablet with sz imprinted on them manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals... ## I was panicked to think that might be the case, but I just found it at a CVS (in Tucson). From my efforts to find it, this is what I have learned… each CVS may give you a different answer, from "we have no control, we only receive what is sent to us" & "I have no way of finding out anything for you"... to "sure, I can order that for you". Bottom line, to find Sandoz methylphenidate don't give up after calling one or two CVSs! ## Hello Just curious, According to the FDA there is no stoppage or shortage of these pills only the exte...


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? They are identical? ## IMMEDIATE HELP REQUIRED, I have the EXACT same question, meds are from a popular part of Mexico from a drug store, packaging was sealed and in Correctly label boxes for the med desired. But unfortunately they are now mixed together do to convenience (but the pills were not examined before they were put together) are there ANY visual or other identifiers between Ritalin 10mg and Clonazepam 2mg? don't know which is what? PLEASE HELP, I don't want the wrong med to be take...

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...

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: ...

methylphenid and methylphenidate

I am in college and I have ADD. At the start of the spring semester my Dr. prescribed me the generic form of Ritalin "methylphenid." When I went to go get my last prescription filled they gave me "methylphenidate." Are there any difference between the 2? If so what? ## They are the same, both generic for Ritalin. The pharmacy just left off the last 3 letters of the name. ## Hello Bobjotoby, How odd, I don't think I have ever seen a pharmacy cut off just the last 3 letters of a drug but I was unable to find anything on a drug named methylphenid so I would assume that BL is correct in saying that is likely what has happened. For peace of mind you always have the option to call the pharmacy and confirm if this is the case. Let us know what you find.

Identity of white round pill w/GG 780 on one side

I was wondering what kind of pill is round and white that has GG 780 printed on one side. ## This is an old tablet that contained 20mgs of Methylphenidate in a time released formulation, it is a generic for Ritalin SR. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, anorexia, and insomnia. While this tablet is not longer listed as being available, (caveat that may change, again, at any time), there are many other generics available. Is there anything I can help with?

Methylphenidate refill from APO

I have been taking Methylphenidate mps 20mg for the past few years and doing great. A couple of weeks ago I went up to get my refill but it wasn't the brand I was on. They told me at the pharmacy that it's the same thing. I was taking them but I am feeling weird along with an upset stomach. Headache. They gave me apo brand. I am wondering if it's just me or are they somewhat different? I would call my Dr. but he is out of town. Thanking-you in advance. ## Decreased appetite, dry mouth, and nausea are all very common adverse effects of Concerta. The best way to counteract the gastrointestinal discomfort is by timing your medication appropriately with meals. Concerta should generally be taken about 30-45 minutes prior to a meal. Go ahead and try that for a couple of days and s...

methylphenidate drug test false negative

My daughter is taking 20 mg er methylphenidate qd. She is not testing positive as she should. This is the second test that has not tested positive. They are wanting to not give her the rx, which she needs for school. It is very frustrating having them think I do not give the meds to her. I most certainly do. How can a test not show the drug? I have called the manager at the doctors office and she stated they test for the methylphenidate. ## I went to the doctor this morning and the 5 and 12 drug screen panel did not test for methylphenidate. they ordered a test that specifically tested for the drug. got her new script and all is well ## This just happened with my daughter. Dr. said she would talk with her supervisor to see if there was a different way to test her. Do you have any sugges...

I found a round yellow pill on my floor that has a T at the top, then under the T it says 175. I'm sure it's for ADHD. ## Hi Tammy, A round yellow pill imprinted with T over 175 (separated by a horizontal score line) is reportedly identified as a 20mg Methylphenidate hydrochloride tablet.

Switching from methylphenidate to brand ritalin

My doctor wants me to take Methylphenidate and only wants me to take brand name Ritalin. Will the pharmacy fill the prescription early due to the change of going from generic to brand? ## In most cases they will not, if there has not also been a dosage change.Why does your doctor want you to only take the name brand? Have you had some issue with the generics? The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, nervousness, insomnia, and weight loss. ## if you did not know! Anyone who has been on Ritalin/methylphenidate more than a week is well aware the FDA says it is highly addictive, blah,blah blah..we know!., but our quality and quantity of life is zero without a diabetic wit...

white round pill 739 SZ

white round 739 on one side and SZ on the other. ## The closest thing I can find to this is manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, they list it as being a very light green, and containing 10mgs of Methylphenidate, which is most commonly used to treat ADHD, narcolepsy, and shift-work sleep disorder. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, headache, dizziness, insomnia, and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with?
