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

     

    I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice. I am also not a legal professional and if you feel you require legal information, you should consult with an attorney.

     

    First, however, it is impossible to know whether Strattera would show up in a drug test without knowing more about the testing procedures. For example, some employment drug testing only searches for specific illegal substances, such as marijuana or cocaine. Other medications would not show up in this test.

     

    If you are required to submit to a drug test for employment reasons, you should know that laws regarding employment drug screening vary from state to state. You should be able to contact your state Equal Employment Opportunity Office to find out more about the laws in your state.

     

    Most employers cannot deny you employment based on a medical condition that became known because of your drug test. Again, I am not an attorney. Your state EEOE office should be able to provide you with additional information.

     

    Before taking the drug test, you should be given a questionnaire to complete. This questionnaire normally asks if you are taking prescription medication and what medication.  Be honest and answer that you are taking Strattera and provide any information needed. This should then be taken into consideration by the lab or employer in the results of the test.

    I hope this helps
