Keep this and all medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you do not take your Metadate ER as scheduled, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule. Taking a dose after morning may cause trouble sleeping. Do not take a double dose.
Metadate ER tablets are available in two strengths:
Metadate ER 10 mg
Metadate ER 20 mg.
Can I Guy Generic Metadate ER?
Currently, both generic and brand-name Metadate ER are available. However, it is not possible to buy this medication without a prescription.
