Methylin CT (Methylphenidate HCl Chewable Tablets)

Audience: Pharmacists, Pediatricians, Neuropsychiatric healthcare professionals

[01/19/2005] FDA and Alliant Pharmaceuticals notified healthcare professionals and consumers of the voluntary recall of one lot of Methylphenidate HCl Chewable Tablets, 5 mg strength,indicated for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Narcolepsy. After testing and evaluation, Alliant found that lot number #AMT50402A [expiration date April 2006] might contain up to three times the active ingredient, and elected to recall the medication as it could pose serious health risk for some patients.

[UPDATE 02/10/2005] Recall expanded to include all lots of the product. The nationwide recall now includes all 2.5 mg, 5 mg and 10 mg dosage strengths because some tablets may contain too much or too little active ingredient.
