ADHD Home > Ritalin

How Should It Be Stored?

It should be stored at room temperature away from moisture or heat. The tablets should be kept in an airtight container.
 
Keep Ritalin and all medications out of the reach of children.
 

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your dose 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 6 p.m. may cause trouble sleeping. A double dose of Ritalin should never be taken.
 

Strengths

The tablets are available in three strengths:
 

Generic Ritalin

Currently, both generic and brand-name versions of the drug are licensed for sale. It is, however, not possible to buy Ritalin without a prescription.
