What Is Daytrana (methylphenidate)?
Daytrana (methylphenidate) is a medication prescribed for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children between 6 and 17 years of age. It’s often prescribed in conjunction with counseling and behavioral therapies.
Daytrana comes in the form of a patch that adheres to the skin. It is placed on the skin of the hip area and will take effect within about two hours. The patch should be removed nine hours after placement. The dosage usually starts off at 10 milligrams and may be raised slowly in 5 or 10 milligram increments over a period of weeks until it produces the desired outcome for a given patient.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill recognizes the significant financial burden that costly medications like those prescribed for childhood ADHD can place on a family of modest means if not covered by insurance. Many such families are already experiencing the emotional stress that comes from the academic and behavioral challenges associated with ADHD. Our mission is to connect parents who need help paying for a child’s ADHD medication with the programs and organizations that offer prescription assistance.
How Does Daytrana Work?
Daytrana is a central nervous system stimulant and is classified as a Schedule II controlled substance. It reduces the symtoms of ADHD by altering the balance of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine in the brain. Stimulants can improve concentration and focus and reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity in children with ADHD.
How to Get Daytrana Prescription Assistance
The journey toward prescription assistance is a short one when you take it with Simplefill. The first step is to apply for Simplefill membership online or by calling 1(877)386-0206. The only other thing you’ll need to do is be interviewed over the phone by one of our patient advocates. From that point on, we’ll do all the heavy lifting.
We’ll construct your member profile using your responses to the interview questions, and then use your profile to identify the prescription assistance programs you’re likely to qualify for and that will give you the most help with the cost of your child’s Daytrana prescription. We’ll also apply to those programs on your behalf and, when you’re approved, get you enrolled as well.
But our help doesn’t end once you’re paying little or nothing for your child’s Daytrana. We’ll continue to stand by you for as long as you need us to. We’ll monitor the status of your Daytrana prescription assistance, and we’ll update your profile as needed to reflect any changes to your medical, financial, and insurance circumstances. If new medications are prescribed for you or a member of your family, we’ll seek prescription assistance for those as well.
