methylphenidate 20mg tablets

take 1 tablet by mouth 3 times daily ## Hi will, Thanks for taking the time to share that dosing information. According to the manufacturer's guidelines, they also suggest taking 10 to 20mg orally 2 or 3 times daily; with a third dose to be only be taken if necessary (as in some patients, a lesser amount may still suffice). The dosing indications could be somewhat different for each individual, as well as those using sustained release tablets. So, in my opinion it's always important to verify this type of information with your doctor first. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Methylphenidate Details I hope this helps! ## Thx for the info, especially the link to the secondary pages, it lead me to much more connected information. ...

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 (concerta) prices

Why is the price of methylphenidate so expensive now? My doctor informed me that it is dirt cheap, and is generic. I was diagnosed with ADD, and was informed it was a cheap drug since I could not afford health insurance. My memory and attention is poor. I am willing to try the drug in generic form. ## I take 10 mg methylphenidate three times daily for narcolepsy. I have no health insurance, but I have been paying $6 for ninety pills at the local Wal-Mart. Today I went to have it renewed and got hit with a $55 bill. I am a senior on fixed income. I would imagine that it is either caused by the increased demand due to upturn in ADHD diagnoses, or some effect of the wonderful new Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. His Grace strikes again? ## And I am taking the generic...forgot to tell yo... ...

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... ...

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. ...

methylphenidate & methyphenidate sa & sr

i am on just plain methylphenidate 20 mg tabs. they don't seem to be as effective as they used to be. i was talking to my psychiatrist about switching to something else but he wasn't very agreeable about it. he said these types of drugs are getting more difficult to get. is this true? what is the difference between methylphenidate reg, sa & sr? could this all possibly have something to do with which pharmaseutical companies my doc deals with? ## The SR stands for sustained release, so the ones with that designation are a time release formulation, rather than a regular release, like what you are currently taking. And no, it has nothing to do with any dealings he has with the pharmaceutical companies. If you search our site you will see that many people are having problems get... ...

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... ...

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... ...

methylphenidate la 30 mg cap differences

Why would I get 2 different pills when I have the same prescription and same manufacturer on the bottles from the same Pharmacy? The amount of time between scripts was 2 months. ## This is a generic medication, so it is manufactured by different companies, this is allowed by the FDA in order to create market competition to help keep prices down. My best guess is that your pharmacy ran out of their usual one and had to use some from a different manufacturer to fully fill your latest prescription, or they switched, and neglected to note the change on the label. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, and anorexia. What are the markings on them? If you can post back with this infor... ...
