Safety Alerts & Recalls

What does this mean?

This voluntary recall is not due to product safety issues. All DAYTRANA patches, including those in the lots listed above, can continue to be used unless the release liner cannot be removed, or the patches are damaged while being opened.

If you are or someone you care for is using DAYTRANA (methylphenidate transdermal system patches), check the box or pouch to find out who it was made by and what lot number is printed on the box or pouch. If your patches are made by Shire, and the lot number printed on it matches one of the lot numbers included in the recall, you can call Shire's DAYTRANA customer service line at 1-800-828-2088, option 1, if you have any problems using your patches.

If you have medical questions or any other questions about the recall, you should contact your physician, pharmacist, or other health care provider.
