Yeah -- I think ever since the FDA declared the Mallinckrodt generic to be "not equivalent", there's been a shortage.

It used to be that if a prescription said "Concerta", the pharmacist could automatically substitute any of the generics for it. But now they're limited to only the authorized generic, and can't use Mallinckrodt unless the script is written for "methylphenidate ER".

At least, that's how I understand it. I had trouble filling my last prescription -- they sent me away for lack of Concerta, but I came back a few days later and lucked into being the first one there since they received a new shipment. Next person, not so lucky!

Re: How much do you pay for Concerta

I just paid $17 for 7 x 18mg trial run.. that's after 80% insurance coverage, plus the dispensing fee (but I picked up 30 x 10mg Dexedrine spansules at the same time, and they came out to $14). Nova Scotia, Canada.

Re: How much do you pay for Concerta

Hello, I appreciate your feedback in advance.
My wife asked me to look into the price of Concerta
While reading these replies, I wanted to ask for your advice.
My kids age 15 just needs help paying attention in school.
He's not "acting out" or being disruptive or whatever else might be perceived as a negative outward action.
He just thinks he zones out and doesn't pay attention during class.
Is that something that Concerta will help?
Do you have any other suggestions?
Thx

Re: How much do you pay for Concerta

$0 BUT only because I had an accident last year which I ended up paying the deductible for the year already with many treatments in the last three months.

Next year I have a feeling it'll be back to around $30-$40/month for the 18mg.
