Metadate ER tablet is an extended release tablet formulation of methylphenidate, the active ingredient in Ritalin (R). It is given two to three times daily.
Methylphenidate is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant that has a calming effect on many children who have ADHD. Although the precise mechanism of action is not known, it is thought to inhibit the reuptake of norepinephrine and dopamine in the presynaptic neuron (the neuron that is stimulating/inhibiting the connecting neuron) and increase release of these chemicals into the space outside the neurons.
