delivers 15mg over 9 hours[1.6mg/hr] each patch contains 41.3mg of methylphenidate. rx only
Daytrana (methylphenidate patch) 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.
Daytrana is a stimulant, but it has effects that are opposite from what would be expected of a stimulant. While stimulants (like caffeine) can cause hyperactivity, Daytrana has a calming effect. While it is not known exactly how the medication produces a calming effect, it is known that it affects certain chemicals in the brain.
Daytrana is a skin patch containing methylphenidate. The methylphenidate is absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. After the patch is applied, it takes about two hours before the medicine begins to take effect. After the patch is removed, the effect slowly wears off.
Hope the info helped?
