Basically, I think I made a major mistake today. Brief summary of my story-- dr. put me on ritalin a couple of weeks ago and i didn't like it, so i took a break to figure out if I wanted to go the med route. A couple of days ago i decided to give it another shot and so i have been using it the past 2 days. The problem is that i forgot i had my life insurance eval this evening. I didn't inform them that i sought treatment for ADD. You see I went to a different dr other than my primary and paid privately (rather than insurance) just in case the meds were something i didn't want to continue or they didn't work, then i figured it would be nowhere in my medical file (perhaps overly cautious for nothing- but It was a personal decision that felt comfortable for me. Anyway getting sidetracked-that is not the issue.
The issue is that absentminded me took the ritalin today twice (at 9am and at 1pm). When I got home I had forgotten all about it and while the evaluator was here passing me the urine cup (6:30 pm) it hit me like a ton of bricks---- I took a stimulant!!! Ughhhhhh.
Does anyone know if this will show up in my urinalysis or blood work?????? What is the absorption rate for such a dosage. For what it's worth, I urinated twice earlier before the evaluator arrived. I am just kicking myself that I totally forgot.
