Adverse Reactions
Throughout this section, adverse reactions are presented. Adverse reactions are adverse events that were considered to be reasonably associated with the use of methylphenidate hydrochloride based on the comprehensive assessment of the available adverse event information. A causal relationship with methylphenidate hydrochloride cannot be reliably established in individual cases.
Further, because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in clinical practice.
Clinical Trial Data: Double-blind data - adverse reactions reported at ≥1% frequency: Adverse reactions in either the pediatric or adult double-blind adverse drug reactions tables may be relevant for both patient populations.
Pediatric Patients: The safety of CONCERTA was evaluated in 639 patients with ADHD who participated in 4 placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trials. The information presented in this section was derived from pooled data.
Adverse reactions reported by ≥1% of CONCERTA-treated children and adolescent patients in these trials are shown in Table 3. (See Table 3.)
