white with 5883 dan 10 ## Metyhylphenidate Info Click Here ## hi my name is shawna my son is on methylphenid i took one to find out how it feels well is possible i have adhd if my son does please tell me and also would i get in trouble at work if it was found in my urine ## Shawna, It's quite possible you have adult ADHD. But you should be diagnosed before taking medicine. By the way, Ritalin, methylphenid or methylin would all show up on a panel as methamphetamines ## you know 3 college students went into urgent care and one died in a coma at my towns college cause they took adderal (another substitute adhd pill) before their finals for focus. IT DOES NOT WORK UNLESS YOU HAVE ADHD. NEVER TAKE PILLS UNLESS PRESCRIBED........... ## the mental health close my case with them and my fam...

Ritalin LA 20mg Reviews

Does anyone have personal experience taking Ritalin LA 20mg? If so, how well has it worked for you? ## My daughter is on this med and I would like to more about this please... Thanks. ## Shonna, Please see the full listing for: Ritalin. If you require any other details please let us know. Thank You ## Seems that most of the generic Ritalin manufacturers are back ordered. All the pharmacies I have called are out. Is there another medication I can request from my doctor. I take 20mg 3X daily ## Does it come in a tourquise and white capsule? I am wondering what mg this is? ## Hi peeps, I was put on Ritalin LA which is supposed to last for 8 hours. It doesn't feel like it to me as I can't focus about 4 hours after taking it. If anyone is taking it, how long does it last for you?

k 102 Ritalin? Do they make you sick?

I have taken Ritalin for years for Narcolepsy. I just got a bottle of yellow pills with K 102 on them. Does anyone else take this brand? They are making me weak, extremely tired and I feel awful. I have never had or seen this brand before. Normally I take Teva. I'm wondering if it's this brand that is making me feel this way? ## These tablets are manufactured by KVK Tech and those can be normal side effects of this medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience dizziness, headache, irritability, and insomnia. NDC code: 10702-0102 How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? It is very odd for this medication to cause you to feel tired, since it usually causes the opposite as a side effect. Are you on any other medications? ## I feel THE EXACT SAME WAY! I usu...

Find a doctor who prescribes either ritalin or adderall for my ADHD in Southwest Florida.

I've had adhd since childhood and it has gotten increasingly worse. I've tried EVERYTHING and found that only these two medications really work. My doctor dropped me due to something regarding Obamacare and I NEED to have my prescriptions refilled! These drugs have literally brought my life back to normal! Please tell me of a doctor who understands the severity of the condition and will prescribe the right medications somewhere in Southwest Florida. ## Obamacare has to do with getting medical coverage, not whether or not your doctor treats you. And as to getting the medications that work for you, you'll need to see a new doctor and make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records. Once they can see what has and hasn't worked for you, as documented by fellow ph...

ciba round green no numbets

score on oppisite side of ciba ## Hello, Frank! How are you? Where did you find it? I couldn't find a listing for this in any of the prescription drug databases that I checked, which leads me to suspect that it's an over the counter product and some of them are regional, so knowing the general location may help to narrow it down. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## I found a drug addiction site that says these are Ritalin 10mg tablets

Ritalin 20mg - Water spilled on the pill. Will it still work?

I didn't have time to take my Ritalin this morning so I put it in a napkin and shoved it in my purse as I walked out the door. Unfortunately my water spilled and got in contact with the pill. The napkin did nothing to protect it and the pill got wet, There was a small amount of dissolving that occurred, The imprint and mg can not be read, Will it still work? ## They have worked for me when I spilled water like the graceful dove I am. ## @Lucy, From what I could gather, the 20mg tablets are considered to be water-soluble, but they should still work even if only part of it was disintegrated. At least it only happened with one pill and not the entire prescription. In my opinion, the only real concern is that it may not be as effective since you wouldn't necessarily be taking a ...

Is this the generic for Ritalin LA 30 mg? This is what the pharmacy filled, but I thought it should be Methylphenidate LA 30 ## It is the same medication, the LA, and the E both stand for the same thing, which denotes it as being a long acting, or delayed release medication. You might see other abbreviations, as well, including XR, ER, CR, SR, but they all mean the same thing. Personally, I think it would be better if they had one standard abbreviation to designate a medication as being time released, but at this time, they do not. The FDA warns that Methylphenidate carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, nervousness, and anorexia. Is there anything else I can help with?

Potential mistake in pill by pharmacist and I’m out of state

I think my pharmacist put the wrong pill in my script bottle and there doesn’t seem to be anyone who can find what it is. The closest is a green one w the same markings k 101 which is Ritalin and I’ve never taken that and I have taken a days worth of the pain meds and I’m scared I took the wrong medicine my pharmacy is closed and closed tomorrow so I can’t get them to confirm. I’m traveling out of state. I’ve talked to pharmacist and poison control. No one can find a light blue pill with these markings. It’s def not green. I’m just scared because I take oxycodone 10 mg for chronic pain but I’ve never taken any kind of Ritalin it adderall or amphetimine and now i May have take it for a whole day and i have to sleep to work tomorrow an...

ritalin 20 mg tablets by northstar

I was on Adderall XR 30 mg, 3X/day for a long time until all the generics came out with the ineffective fillers and they became ineffective. My doctor then switched me to Ritalin 20 mg, 3X/day. They did help to perk me up. I'm on a heavy dose of morphine thru an infusion pump for chronic pain for almost 10 years. I called the office to tell them about the side effects I was having: INTENSE sweating, ANGER, mood changes. I was told to reduce the script to 1/2 pill in the am and 1/2 in the pm. This was a little too low so I take 1 tablet in the am and 1/2 in the pm. So far, this seems to be working well and the sweating has decreased almost 98%, anger is gone. I think I'll stay here since its working. Has anyone else had issues with Ritalin? ## Those can be normal side effects of ...

Ritalin pill differences - Imprints of T 175 and Dan 20

My daughter gets prescribed 20mgs of Ritalin instant release (Dan 20) 3 times a day. I had to go to a different pharmacy and they gave me a yellow pill round with T 175 on one side. Is this the same thing? It doesn't seem to be working as well!!! ## Yes, it is also a generic for Ritalin, it contains 20mgs of Methylphenidate. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, insomnia, and anorexia. Has there been any change, or is she still having a problem with it? Is she on any other medications? ## Thank you and Yes she takes 0.1 mg of clonidine mood stablizer and it also helps her sleep at night ## Ahh Finally Found a Site Where I Can Get Quick Answers Without All The Login Has...

Ritalin sr 20 mg tablets

I was told by my pharmacist today that brand name (Novartis)-ritalin 20 mg tablets sr (sustained-release), have been discontinued. I cannot find anything on the internet to confirm this. He filled one-third of the prescription and said to contact the doctor to decide what to do. He said ritalin capsules, 20 mg la (long-acting) is still available from novartis. Has anyone out there had any similar difficulties? This may cause problems with my insurance plan...or delays. And I don't have transportation to go from pharmacy to pharmacy looking for ritalin tabs 20 mg sr. Would appreciate any feedback. Thank you in advance. ## Sunday night, and my Rite Aid pharmacist called to tell me the same thing. He said any pharmacy (Rite Aid, Walmart and more) that orders their pills from McKesson w...

white ritalin pill with an r one side and 550 on other

I accidentally spilled opened my wife's purse and she had small white pills with these fancy letter R on one side and 550 on the other what are these pills for I am concerned I am very worried don't want to approach her until I know what to PI'll is first. ## Hello, David! How are you? Are the markings in black print? If so, this is a 50mg delayed release Diclofenac tablet, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. ## My Doc just changed my medication from Adderall Xr 30 mg - 2 X daily to Ritalin 20 mg tablets- 3 X/day. My question is will these pills make me feel the depression & anger I had with the Addetall XR or IR (generics).

Kvk Ritalin - Are you kidding

Kvk... Ritalin?! Garbage! I will be going to the Dr's and ask why I'm being rx'd phentermine?! A drug is a drug, is a drug! Ritalin would give me a happy, motivated, feeling. My palms used to sweat, I was engaged, now the magic is gone. I'm no longer convinced kvk is selling Ritalin! This I put up with 2-3 times now... My given right and body will stop being coerced by Dr's that believe they know best. Trust me, decline this kvk brand!!! Pissed off, and tried the "stimulant vacation!". Before someone wants to get mouthy, I saved an old script before kvk... Kvk white round tabs are not Ritalin!? ## Hello Vemonter, I'm unsure of the direction you wanted to go with this post. Are you simply stating that KVK is not Ritalin? If so you're absolutely correct...

White Pill with N and 36

Hi, I found two pills in my sons room and would like to know their identity. White pill with 36 and N on opposite side + a grey pill with 27 and N on opposite side. I searched all the databases and found nothing. Any assistance or suggestions would be grateful. Thanks. ## To clarify: White Oval: with 36 and N on opposite side. Grey Oval: with 27 and N on opposite side. ## Hi, I found the same pills in my daughters room yesterday (22 jun 11) and did a search but only found this thread. Unfortunately it seems impossible to find anything on the internet with this type of pill (white oblong with n on one side and 36 on the other). I do, however, find it interesting that two sets of parents find this type of pill in their teenagers possession within the same week. This concerns me greatly as...
