While the Mallinckrodt generic and a couple others lost their generic equivalency status, they weren’t pulled from the market. The chains should not be using them but they are.
There is a true generic equivalent for Concerta, made by the brand company. It’s sold under Actavis. Walgreens uses this as their generic.
