The most obvious answer is they didn't test for it or your levels in your UDS weren't high enough to pick up, some tests are more sensitive and test for abuse prone meds. But with your prescription who cares, you're legal. If you don't have a script, maybe the pill you took wasn't ritalin..
Peace and take care,
