A friend went to a drug store to get a prescription for Ritalin filled for her young son. She noticed the pill didn't look like the last prescription. This pill had JSP514 on it. Is this pill the same as Ritalin?
Pill imprint JSP 514 has been identified as Levothyroxine sodium 50 mcg (0.05 mg).
Levothyroxine is used in the treatment of underactive thyroid; hypothyroidism, after thyroid removal; hashimoto's disease; tsh suppression; thyroid suppression test (and more), and belongs to the drug class thyroid drugs.
This is NOT Ritalin (generic methylphenidate). I would take them straight back to the drug store.
