Re: nervous about ritalin and drug testing

Quote:
Is ritalin an amphetamine? does anyone have any knowledge of this type of situation drug testing? if my job finds out that i am add/adhd can they fire me? restrict me?
As far as I know, yep, ritalin is considered a psychostimulant drug and can be detected during a drug test (if that is one of the drugs that they are testing for).
As long as a doctor has prescribed this medicine for you, it should not be an issue. Not sure; however, firing you for having a managable medical condition would probably be considered as unfair and discriminatory.
