 “We are extremely pleased to add our methylphenidate to the list of therapeutically equivalent generics for Concerta,” Jim Luce, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Brdigewater, N.J.-based Amneal, said. “The entrance of another AB-rated option adds to the choices provided to patients, prescribers and payers beyond non-substitutable BX-rated products and the brand.”

Amneal’s generic Concerta has begun shipping and is available in 18-, 27-, 36- and 64-mg dosage strengths, all of which are available in 90-count bottles, with 30-count bottles also available.

The product had a U.S. market size of $1.5 billion for the 12 months ended December 2017, according to IQVIA data.
