I take vyvanse regularlly and was recently given a random drug test at the psych dr. But tested positve for ritalin not vyvanse?

Urine + for ritalin: I take vyvanse regularlly and was recently given a random drug test at the psych dr. But tested positve for ritalin not vyvanse? ANS: ritalin and vyvanse are very close chemical cousins so depending on which test they used they may either show + test but they cannot tell which one it is. Ask your team doing the test if they cross react in the test they use. ...Read more

If I abused ritalin/methylphenidate and was given a urine test will the levels show that I abused it or will it just show up as a positive so I'll be ?

A routine SAMHSA-5: urine test does not screen for methylphenidate. If a specific screen for mph is used, it depends on the duration of action of the formulation you took & how rapidly you metabolize & excrete it. I hope that you heard yourself say that you're abusing prescription medications. Next step is to recognize that you need to seek treatment for both your addiction & any comorbid psychiatric disorder(s). ...Read more

If I abused ritalin (methylphenidate) the night before I was given a urine test will it show high levels of ritalin (methylphenidate) in my system or just a positive for ritalin (methylphenidate)?

Depends on the test: Some tests only screen for the presence of the drug, while others will actually look for the quantity of the material.Either way, if it was not a valid prescribed use, you could be looking at federal time for use of a controlled substance.Any level will fit the definition for that charge. ...Read more

Does amphetamine appear as a false positive of ritalin (methylphenidate)?

In a drug screen, : methylphenidate, the generic name for Ritalin & other preparations, does not show up as amphetamine. Amphetamine products like Adderall & Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) can show up in a drug test, but are not a problem if the persons being tested present their prescription bottles at the time of testing. ...Read more

What will ritalin (methylphenidate) do to you if you don't have adhd? I'm a 14 year old female without adhd. My little brother is possitive for ADHD and takes ritalin (methylphenidate). I took around 15 mg of his not too long ago. What will it do to me?

The opposite: First of all you should never take any medication that is not prescribed for you. Ironically, stimulants such as Ritalin (methylphenidate) slow down thought process and hyperactivity in people with adhd whereas it will likely increase thought process leading to poor focus and judgement and possibly hyperactivity in any one else. ...Read more

Does a child taking the different forms of ritalin (methylphenidate) get different effects with each type or brand?

Does a child taking the different forms of ritalin (methylphenidate) get different effects with each type or brand?

Quite possibly: Aside from the issue of brand vs. Generic medications, formulations of methylphenidate (the genereic medication) are deliberately designed to have different duration of action raning from 2-21/2 hours to 10-12 hours. The basic benefits should be the same, but both side efects and overall effectiveness can be tailored to the child. ...Read more

I've been taking 10 mg ritalin (methylphenidate) twice a day for three weeks. I no longer feel the effects. Have i developed a tolerance? Should i ask for ritalin (methylphenidate) xr?

Tolerance OK term: I am glad you use the term tolerance which is a decrease of the effect of the medication over time; the person becomes accustomed to it. It is different from addiction (craving, withdrawal symptoms, chronic compulsive use; and different from physical dependence). A dose of 10 mg of Ritalin (methylphenidate) twice a day is a good therapeutic dose. I do not know why you take it but ask your health provider (nuvigil?). ...Read more
