Concerta

Hi,

My child is currently on 18mg of concerta, but needs to increase his current dosage. The next avalibale dosage is 36mg. I have read on the internet that you can get 27mg. Is that available in South Africa and if yes, where? If not, when do you think it will become available?

Thank you for helping!

Dear Helena
No this is not available in 27 mg in SA. However you do get a generic in 10mg called Adaphen and the original Ritalin is available in a 10 and 20 mg. You could maybe give him 18 mg Concerta plus 10 mg Adaphen?
