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 extended release versions are currently on back order. If you are ever trying to figure out if your medication has been discontinued or is in a shortage you can visit either of the websites I linked below.

[1] ASHP drug shortages
[2] FDA drug shortages and discontinuations

Hope this information helps.

Yes, they have discontinued making it, because they were losing a lot of money making it. The better quality ingredients come at a price, which makes it difficult for some companies to be able to afford to compete with the cheaper generic products. I’m also looking for something to replace Sandoz now that it’s been discontinued. If you find something comparable please let me know! :)
