Focalin An Amphetamine?

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

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.
