Daytrana Patch

Daytrana™ (methylphenidate patch) is approved for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adolescents. The medication comes in the form of a patch that is applied directly to the skin and worn for up to nine hours (it takes about two hours for the drug to start to take effect).
 
Although it is a stimulant, Daytrana is able to produce a calming effect to help children with ADHD stay focused throughout the day. Most people tolerate this patch well; however, side effects are possible and may include nausea, insomnia, and weight loss.
