> I have noticed a large difference in potency between different makers of methylphenidate, the generic equivalent to Ritalin. How do you tell who made it (it's not shown on my prescription label)? The last two batches have been called "Methylin," and they have a capital "M" in a square box on a white pill, 20mg strength.

I guess a simple thing to do would be to ask your pharmacist what lab makes your pill. My pills had the whole word Mylan written on it. The Greenstone version have a G and some numbers.
