What ADHD Drug(s) Is Wal-Mart Covering In Their $4 Generic Prescription Program?

Just today a press release was issued stating that Wal-Mart pharmacy will now be covering additional drugs under its’ generic program. All the articles I have read state that they will now be covering “some” attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) drugs. My question is: which one(s)? I have looked on every Wal-Mart prescription list I can find, and I don’t see any ADHD drugs on any of them. Please don’t just give me a link to the drug list (I already have that. See below), tell me specifically which drug(s) are for ADHD. Thanks so much!

Here’s the press release:

Wal-Mart expands $4 generic drugs program
Retailer says 24 new prescriptions will now be covered, including treatments for glaucoma and attention deficit disorder; birth control covered at $9.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Wal-Mart announced Thursday that it has extended its year-long $4 generic prescription drugs program to include 24 new prescriptions.
The company said the program will now cover more categories to include glaucoma, attention deficit disorder/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD), fungal infections and acne.

Here’s a list of the Wal-Mart generic drugs:
I just called my Wal-Mart pharmacy, and yes, it is generic Ritalin (methylphenidate) they’re adding. It is available for in the 5mg and 10mg doses.

Thanks for the answers!
