Ritalin Patch

Were you looking for information about the Methylphenidate Patch? Ritalin patch is a common variation of methylphenidate patch.
 
The methylphenidate patch, which is available with a prescription, is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children. It is sold under the brand name Daytrana™. This form of ADHD medication is more convenient than most because it only needs to be applied to the skin once a day. Generally, it is worn for nine hours. Once the skin patch is applied and methylphenidate absorbs into the bloodstream, the medicine will affect certain chemicals in the brain to produce a calming effect in children with ADHD. At this point, there is no genuine generic version of the methylphenidate patch.
