View Full Version : new prescription for Metadate 20mg

03-09-11, 02:18 PM
My son's doctor wrote a prescription that reads just: Metadate 20mg. After reading more on this medicine, I have learned there are now two types; ER & CR-(the newer one). The script does not indicate which one, and I understand there is a difference, but since his Dr didn't feel necessary to indicate which form, nor did the pharmacist question how it was written-I am assuming that one of them (CR or ER) is typically prescribed when not specified on the script. Does anyone know which one that probably is?
