Huh?

10 mg of methylphenidate is 10 mg of methylphenidate.

What could differ is the speed of which the active ingredient gets released into the blood, but this is hardly ever more than 20% difference (if even), and one might be sensitive due to a diff colouring or other ingredient in the filler.

If you want to save money the only option is to try them and see how they work out for you.
Look up chirality.

One production process may favor one chrality, another may not, or vice versa. If only one chirality is biologically effective (often the case), the effective amount of the active component may differ wildly even though the amount of the molecule contained is the same.

But yes, it would make sense to try the generics, though I would want to be monitored and advised by a doc. Don't you need a "Rezept" (authorisation by a doc to buy a given drug or a drug containing a given active substance) anyway?

Re: Ritalina Price Bern Switzerland

I'm curious to know as a US expat how to get my meds prescribed here, especially if theyre controlled. I have had ADHD for 10+ years and due to COVID and not being able to travel back to the US at the moment, I am running out of options (and my dextroamphetamine)

Any guidance would be much appreciated!

Go to your GP. Unfortunately it will take some time as the GP most likely will want to do some testing som bring whatever documents you have from your home GP

You will need a referral to a psychiatrist. It is hard to get your prescription here, Ritalin or Concerta is possible. Good luck!
