Q.

Available generic for Ritalin LA 20mg?

Is there any generic available yet for Ritalin LA 20mg in South Africa? Or in the near future that you are aware of? From the Internet it seems that Teva Pharmaceuticals announced a generic round about 2012, but no sign thus far of it in South Africa. Really in need of something a little bit more economical, two ADHD boys, doing well on Ritalin LA.

No generic for Ritalin LA is available. There have been submissions to the MCC (now SAHPRA), but extensive delays have us all frustrated.
