    We have noted a bug in active ingredient prescribing which relates to Ritalin and Ritalin LA, both are methylphenidate 10 mg, and when you do a script and click Incl.Brand, on the script you get both Ritalin and Ritalin LA brands printed on every script, making the prescription very difficult to interpret and frankly misleading. The work around is to only prescribe as generic methylphenidate for both long and short, or choose the brand Artige when prescribing short acting. Curiously Ritalin LA in particular in the pop-up says to consider including the brand see red text, but 2 brands will be printed if you do, but maybe we need to add the descriptor Short or Long acting in the free text section. See Pictures below

    Hi Dr Brian Conway, thank you for raising this with us. I can confirm that we have identified this bug and it will be resolved in our next version of Genie which is currently slated for release in late April 2021.
