Citing defective delivery systems, Noven Therapeutics is voluntarily recalling multiple lots of Daytrana (methylphenidate) transdermal systems, according to the April 29, 2020, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Enforcement Report. 

The recall affects the following Daytrana products, which were distributed throughout the United States:

  • Daytrana patches, 10 mg over 9 hours (1.1 mg/hour), 30-count boxes (NDC 68968-5552-3) from lot 86647 (Exp. 9/20);
