Hello from JustAnswer.

Focalin is not an amphetamine. It acts on the brain similar to amphetamines, but it is chemically different than amphetamines.

From the perspective of drug testing, since the Focalin is chemically not an amphetamine, it will not be detected by the urine drug screen for amphetamines.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
