Concerta (Methylphenidate) 27mg

    What is Concerta?

    Concerta is a prescription drug that’s used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This condition affects your ability to pay attention. It can also cause you to have impulsiveness and hyperactivity, as well as excessive movements.

    Concerta is approved for use in children ages 6 years and older, and in adults up to age 65 years.

    Drug details

    Concerta comes as tablets that are taken by mouth once each day. The tablets are extended release, which means they release the medication over time.

    Concerta contains the drug methylphenidate. It belongs to a class of medications called stimulants. Concerta works by increasing levels in your brain of two neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) called norepinephrine and dopamine. Increasing these neurotransmitter levels helps to stimulate your brain, which can improve the symptoms of ADHD.


    In clinical trials, Concerta has been effective in treating ADHD in both adults and children. For more information, see the section below called “Concerta for ADHD.”

    Is Concerta a controlled substance?

    Yes, Concerta is a controlled substance. This means that Concerta is regulated by the federal government. It’s regulated because people can sometimes become dependent on the medication.

    Dependence on a drug means that your body needs to have the drug in order for you to function well. This condition can lead people to misuse a drug. (With misuse, a drug is taken in a way other than how it’s prescribed.)

    Concerta is considered a Schedule II (CII) drug. Schedule numbers show how easily the drug may be misused. Schedule II drugs, such as Concerta, have a higher risk of being misused than drugs with a higher schedule number.

    Always keep your medication in a safe place where other people can’t access it. This helps prevent others from misusing the drug. It’s against the law to sell or give your Concerta tablets to anyone who doesn’t have a prescription for the drug.

    Before you or your child start taking Concerta, talk with your doctor if you or your child has a history of drug misuse. Your doctor can recommend whether or not Concerta is a good treatment option.
