How Should Ritalin SR Be Stored?

Ritalin SR tablets should be stored at room temperature away from moisture or heat. They should also be kept in an airtight container.
Keep Ritalin SR 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 SR as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Taking a dose after morning may cause trouble sleeping. Do not take a double dose.


Ritalin SR tablets are available in one strength -- Ritalin SR 20 mg.

Generic Ritalin SR

There is currently both generic and brand-name Ritalin SR available. You cannot, however, buy Ritalin without a prescription.
