Osmodex® Drug Delivery Technology

Methylphenidate ER utilizes osmotic delivery technology. This technology allows for methylphenidate to be released at a controlled rate throughout the day, with the immediate-release drug layer working within one hour. This means the patient gets the medicine he or she needs quickly — for up to 24 hours — with each dose.
