Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

The methylphenidate typically is not detected by a pre-employment drug test. Although methylphenidate acts similar to amphetamine in the nervous system, it is chemically different, so is not detected by the amphetamine component of the urine drug screen.

If a confirmatory test is done, such as GC/MS, then the methylphenidate can be detected. But since the screening test will not detect it, there is no reason that a confirmatory test will be done.

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