ADHD Home > Quillivant XR Drug Information

If you have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), your healthcare provider may recommend treatment with Quillivant XRTM (methylphenidate ER oral suspension). As an extended-release product, this medication only needs to be taken once a day. It is approved to treat ADHD symptoms in children as young as age six, as well as in adults.
Although this drug can be an effective treatment for many people, it's important to review the safety information for Quillivant XR before starting treatment. For example, tell your healthcare provider if you are taking any other medications, have any allergies, or are pregnant or nursing.
Most people tolerate the medicine well; however, some people may develop side effects, such as insomnia, decreased appetite, and mood swings.
