Ritalin is not tested for in 5 panel or 10 panel tests. Ritalin is a methylphenidate not an amphetamine. It will not cause a positive or a false positive in a hair follicle tests. Too many people post mis conceptions and cannot back up their statements. Ritalin can be tested for however its very expensive and rarely ever does a company test for it.
Ritalin can cause a false positive in a urine test however its not common.
Anti depressants will never show up in a hair test.
Most people don't even know what ritalin is made of. It's formulation comes from the piperdine class not amphetamine class.
I have spoken to several reputable drug testing companies almost all universally told me it will not show up on a hair follicle test.
Don't listen to the people who post just to post. They usually piggy back from another person who has no clue about ritalin etc.

One, well... me, would imagine with a hair sample being tested, that the tester was serious about what drug was there, what wasn't ... gc/ms serious. Those things can test for one soma, found metabolites, that I had taken 3 weeks earlier. Not kidding. Of course I had a script, just didn't like them, like Robaxin 750, works better on me.
