Can daytrana be abused by injection or eating of the patch?

Daytrana is a prescription medication that is used for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents. It is a skin patch that is applied once daily (in the morning) and worn for nine hours, eliminating the need to take medication at school.

Because the medication contains methylphenidate, a stimulant that is commonly abused, there are special rules governing it.

The patch cannot be eaten & Daytrana does not come in injection form.

Take care, be safe & well!
