An Introduction to Metadate ER Side Effects
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Metadate ER® (methylphenidate extended-release). However, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor, meaning they require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(The Metadate ER side effects discussed below are not a complete list of reported side effects. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
Common Metadate ER Side Effects
Metadate ER has been studied thoroughly in clinical trials, in which the side effects of a group of people taking the drug are documented and compared to another group not taking the medicine. This way, it is possible to see what side effects occur, how often they appear, and how they compare to the group not taking the medicine.
Based on these studies, the most common side effects of Metadate ER include:
Metadate ER can also cause a temporary slowing down of growth in children. This is usually small (less than an inch and less than two pounds), and children usually catch up to normal growth rates with time.
Serious Metadate ER Side Effects
Some Metadate ER side effects, while not as common, are potentially serious and should be reported to your healthcare provider. These include:
Rare Metadate ER Side Effects
Some Metadate ER side effects are quite rare and were reported in very few people taking the medicine. Given how uncommon they occur, it can be difficult to tell whether these side effects are actually caused by the medication or by something else.
Some of these rare side effects include, but are not limited to:
If you suffer from seizures, heart problems, or mental problems, Metadate ER can aggravate the symptoms associated with these conditions.
Metadate ER Side Effects: A Summary
You may experience some or none of the Metadate ER side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, be sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
