Thank you SO much Penny! Also just thanks for this forum in general – it’s helped me so very much in different ways over the years.
Quick update if it will help someone… Spoke to our local CVS and they ARE able to order the TEVA authorized generic. They recommend doctor puts on the Rx something along the lines of “Dispense Teva manufactured authorized generic only”.
Good luck everyone!January 7, 2019 at 9:17 am in reply to: WARNING – A new generic Methylphenidate Er tab hit the market in December 2016 #106249
If you follow this link and view the images of the pills, just below the pic there is text that confirms the rating as “Authorized Generic” for Teva. Please let us know if anyone has been able to confirm this?
(Sorry I don’t know how to paste a picture here)

Is Teva now the authorized generic for brand Concerta? I looked on their site and the pills seem exactly like my current brand Concerta… The Alza stamp etc. Please if anyone knows, post here?

Unfortunately I don’t have specific information about Mylan, but I still wanted to send you my empathy. I’ve been on useless generics, feeling truly that I am losing my mind and then having the pharmacy tell me “it’s the same thing”… It’s so hard. Hang in there! It’s not you… you are not flat, miserable or disconnected. And you’re definitely not alone!
So far, all I could figure out is that we need to get the “authorized” generic, which is the brand name being marketed as a generic. Anything else and it doesn’t have the same release formula, might contain dyes (red #40 etc.) or other inactive ingredients that we can react to.
Let us know if you are able to achieve anything or figure it out? I would be happy to learn from your experience for sure!
