Methylin Chewable Tablets (methylphenidate HCl) Chewable Tablets 2.5 mg, 5 mg and 10 mg

Ritalin LA (methylphenidate hydrochloride) Extended-Release Capsules

Generic Ritalin is made by the following manufacturers:
* Mallinckrodt, Inc.; * UCB, Inc.; * Actavis Elizabeth; * Watson Laboratories.

Please talk to your pharmacist/doc who prescribed the med to help you select the generic version/med for Methylin or Ritalin, hope the info helps?

I am not a pharmacist - but a patient. I am prescribed Ritalin LA 20mg (with Generic option checked); the Pharmacy fills it as Methylphenidate ER. That's not exactly what you asked, but perhaps a contribution to the subject overall? free discount card
