Why would a child taking Ritalin be drug tested? Or is it safe to assume the parent of the child is either taking it them self or selling their child's meds on the street? Yes, it will show up as an amphetamine.

I am over 20 years old and prescribed Ritalin... just b/c someone may be an adult... dosn't mean that they are taking their child's meds!

Your very first activity as a new member is to comment negatively on a year old question? Please look up the statistics of the number of adults prescribed ritalin vs. children. It's a 5 to 1 ratio. Yes, I assumed too much, but usually my instincts are good and I'll stick to my answer. Ritalin is highly abused by adults.

Regardless of the reasons you take Ritalin, as long as you have a legitimate prescription, you shouldn't have a problem with whomever required the drug screen.
