If it has the osmotic-controlled release oral delivery system (OROS), then it’s equivalent to brand. That is the piece missing from so many of the generics that aren’t as effective as brand Concerta for most people. I do believe Teva is manufacturing the true equivalent now, but I can’t find definitive answer online about that.
