Every Patient Has Unique Needs
Methylphenidate ER is now available in a range of dosing options for easy titration to achieve the necessary therapeutic range. This means you can harness an ideal dose to help patients get the therapy they need in a convenient, affordable once-daily solution.
Josh, Age 20
Titration 18-mg + 18-mg + 9 additional mg = 45-mg (in one daily dose)
Current Medications: Patient started on 18-mg of Methylphenidate ER six months ago and has recently titrated to 36-mg in two Methylphenidate ER tablets daily (18-mg + 18-mg). The doctor does not want to move patient all the way up to 54-mg, so the new in-between once-daily 45-mg provides a better option to titrate more gradually as the next step.
Situation: ADHD symptoms have improved, but a dose adjustment may provide better control. Patient requires titration to 45-mg daily but is resistant to taking more tablets and is more comfortable in making a more gradual increase.
Joey, Age 14
Quantity Limit = 30 Tablets
Current Medications: 63 mg in two Methylphenidate ER tablets daily (18-mg + 45-mg)
Situation: The patient's prescription plan imposes a monthly quantity limit of 30 tablets, so he incurs higher out-of-pocket costs. Taking a single 63-mg Methylphenidate ER tablet brings Alex within the monthly quantity limits and reduces the monthly prescription cost.
Isabella, Age 18
1 Manufacturer =
Diagnosis: ADHD and generalized anxiety disorder
Current Medications: (2x36-mg) Methylphenidate ER tablets daily and medications for anxiety
Situation: Patient switched from branded Methylphenidate HCl extended-release tablets to a generic methylphenidate extended-release product to reduce out-of-pocket costs. She is now concerned about receiving tablets that vary in shape, size, and color from fill to fill. She prefers a product produced by the same manufacturer with each fill.
Alex, Age 30
Convenience = One 72-mg* tablet
versus Two 36-mg tablets
Current Medications: (2x36-mg) methylphenidate ER tablets daily
Situation: Patient and parents may prefer the convenience of taking one 72-mg* tablet daily versus two 36-mg tablets daily.

Methylphenidate ER Once-Daily Dosing Efficacy
The study exhibits how once-daily Methylphenidate ER 72-mg works as effectively as twice-daily doses.
Methylphenidate ER 72-mg has demonstrated bioequivalence to two 36-mg branded methylphenidate HCl extended-release tablets.2
Pharmacokinetic study of mean methylphenidate plasma concentration over time — Administration of one Methylphenidate ER 72-mg tablet versus two 36-mg branded methylphenidate HCl extended-release tablets.2
Per revised FDA guidance in 2014, additional bioequivalence metrics are required to ensure that a new Methylphenidate ER alternative is therapeutically equivalent to branded methylphenidate HCl extended-release tablets.3
