Ritalin generic

Dear Doc

In your opinion, is there a difference between Ritalin and it''s generic? Specifically in terms of effectiveness and side effects.

Thank you

If you are referring to the regular Ritalin and not to the long-acting form then the generic of Ritalin is effective and the side effects are the same.
