An Introduction to Metadate CD Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Metadate CD® (methylphenidate extended-release). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects.

If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor, meaning they require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
