There have been a lot of problems with generic Concerta, so much so that the FDA revoked some of the generics’ brand equivalency status. We had the same problem, the generic Concerta was like taking nothing. Our doctor wrote “brand medically necessary” on all his scripts after that, until the pharmacies were required to use only one of the generics, which was manufactured by the same company as brand name.

Generic Concerta Is Not Created Equal
