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.
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.
