    Is Focalin an Amphetamine? I have a DOT drug test and am just now finding out that Focalin (which Ive been on for 2 years now) might be an Amphetamine.

    Thank you for your question and welcome to ADHDCentral.com.


    I am not a medical professional and cannot give you medical advice.

    Focalin is a stimulant medication. The main ingredient is methylphenidate (not amphetamine). These medications can sometimes show up on drug testing as amphetamines.
