Generic Concerta: An Overview

Concerta® (methylphenidate extended release) is a prescription medication that has been licensed to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Concerta is a medication that is designed to be released slowly over time. Because the medication is released slowly, it can be taken just once a day, eliminating the need to take medication at school or work.
 
Brand-name Concerta is manufactured by ALZA Corporation, and is distributed and marketed by McNeil Pediatrics. However, it is also available in generic form.
 

Manufacturers of Generic Concerta

Watson Laboratories sells an "authorized generic" version of Concerta. This means that the original manufacturer supplies Watson with brand-name Concerta tablets, which Watson packages and sells as a generic drug. Therefore, this generic version is exactly like the brand-name drug in every way, other than it being sold as a generic. Various other manufacturers, such as Mallinckrodt, Inc., and Kremers Urban Pharmaceuticals, Inc., also make a generic version of Concerta.
