It’s my understanding that the generic with the OROS delivery system has ALZA written on it. For my son, we just went back to Concerta 27 mg. The doc wrote the script for Concerta 27 mg and the pharmacy had to fill it with a certified generic. It took 5 days for Walgreens to get it in stock, but it’s a gray cylinder pill with “ALZA 27” written on it.

Our previous insurance made us get brand name Concerta, and this generic pill looks almost exactly like I remember brand name Concerta looking.
