The different brands of methylphenidate MR preparations are not bioequivalent and contain different ratios of immediate release to modified release drug. They should therefore be prescribed by brand name.

  • Matoride® XL – 20% immediate release, 80% modified release (bioequivalent to Concerta®)
  • Equasym® XL – 30% immediate release, 70% modified release
  • Medikinet® XL – 50% immediate release, 50% modified release

Standard release formulations should be prescribed generically
