Same drug: Ritalin (methylphenidate) and Concerta are brand names of two methylphenadate based products. The Concerta is a timed released delivery system that has some advantages over the short acting products, but you are dealing withe same med.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
