Reply To: Concerta in 2018


My child (12) took the Actavis generic for a year. It was wonderful. Last month Walgreens gave me the med made from a new manufacturer. It was a small blue circular pill, rather than the cylindrical blue one that is the Activis/Concerta model. She had a horrible reaction including shaking, intensified sense of vision, loss of balance, crying, not feeling well, feeling as if she were “in a dream”. My doc suggested using Concerta brand because it releases similar to Actavis one. Now, the price is killing me! Pharmacist said he doesn’t know how long he will be able to get the Actavis one via special order. Do any of you know of coupons or have you ised GoodRx for cost assistance?
