Keep Ritalin LA and all medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Ritalin LA as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember in the morning. If you do not remember until the afternoon, skip the dose; taking Ritalin LA after morning may cause trouble sleeping at night. Do not take a double dose of this medication.
