Ritalin urine test

Common Questions and Answers about Ritalin urine test


Avatar m tn Ive heard that methylphenidate/ritalin wont be detected by most urine test but ive also heard that it will show up as methamphetamines, so i dont know what to believe. All i want to know is will it show up at all and if it does will it show my high levels of ritalin being in my system so the doctors will know i was abusing it.
Avatar m tn I've heard numerous times that ritalin won't be screened for in almost all urine test, can anyone confirm this since I abused ritalin/methylphenidate snorting about 50 20mg pills the night before I was given a random urine test by my pain management doctor, now I'm worried about what will show up in the urine test. So can anyone tell me if I'm worrying over nothing?
Avatar m tn I have been to the urologist and he has tested me for diabetes and measured my sex hormone levels (testosterone and free testosterone, prolactin etc). All of these test have returned normal. I am also going to have a night time tumescence test done to rule out psychological causes. I am pretty sure it is not a psych problem as I do not get morning erections and cannot get erections when masturbating.
Avatar f tn Well back on October 11th, my doctor changed my medication from Ritalin to Adderall, as I wasn't getting the desired effects from the Ritalin. Within 2 weeks of this switch, my weight dropped 7lbs...and has continued to drop at a rate of 2-3 lbs/week on average(from 179lbs in the beginning of October to 154lbs today, 12/22). I've also watched my appetite get smaller and smaller.

Avatar m tn however i am thinking about getting ritalin prescribed . i have a very good job where i am routinely drug tested via Urine and Hair. will ritalin casue a fasle positive drug test? half the internet sites say no the other half say yes.
Avatar m tn Since your doc apparently needs some continuing ed on the topic. Let them k ow there is a SPECIFIC test you can order to actually detect the correct medication. Its called a "Ritalin (Methylphenidate) Urine Drug Test" (imagine that.) And again, this test is NOT part of the standard urinalysis (drug screen).

Avatar m tn I knew i didn't have money for anymore, so I begain substituting with ritalin. The morning before my fall i took 20mg ritalin, 10 hours later i took 20mg adderall. When I was working 14 hours a day, I had taken way more of the 2 so I don't think the amount I took on this day was a lot and I hadn't mixed the 2 in 3 weeks. And hadn't took an abusive dose, i only took 20mg ritalin that morning because i felt so drowsy after more than 8 hours sleep.
Avatar n tn Taking Ritalin with hep c may not be the safest suggestion...it is addictive and it is a speed so it has heart attack problems associated with it...and so can the hep c treatment... but the real reason i think it shouldn't be used with liver patients is because, it has been shown in mice, to cause hepatoblastomas, (liver tumors and liver cancer) ...and many folks/drs may not know this... but, i'd be real careful about the ritalin because it's been linked to liver cancer in mice...
Avatar m tn She probably isn't pregnant, but it's smart of her to test. Be sure she uses first-morning urine, it needs to be pretty concentrated for an accurate result. I'm glad you two are using condoms, but she might also consider getting onto the pill so she does not have any more scares. I'm sorry she's having sex at 15, that seems a year or two early to me, just because of the emotional implications of starting so young. Anyway, keep up the good work about contraception.

Avatar n tn When I was about 13 or 14, I was put on a combination of prozac and dexadrine (ritalin substitute) and I had a bad reaction that ended up putting me in the hospital with extremely high blood pressure, IBS like symptoms and widespread pain. I'm 26 now and I've still had the pain and IBS the whole time since, and the pain gets slightly worse over time and has gotten almost debilitating.
2191023 tn?1338767543 Consider asking your physician to run following test will give them a comprehensive look at whats going on. CD 4 / CD 8 = ratio NK Cell ( B Test ) Full Immunological test. These test are expensive and typically run for patient with AIDS. I believe CFS is cause by EBV and CMV as they infected our NK cell thus causing T4 and T3 transcription. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Today, I spoke to the office manager who stated that she talked to the doctor about the way I was treated and she stated they are going to change the way they do things in the office. For example, the drug test he gave me was a 5 panel drug test that did not pick up on the medication that was in my system, so they are switching to 10 panel.
Avatar n tn Most cases are treatable, most tumors caught early enough are benign. There is a urine test (24hr) that is generally done which looks for abnormal amounts of catecholamines. There is a more accurate blood test as well. Both tests suffer from the fact that recent exercise will produce interference, and the additional fact that the tumor(s) may not be producing adrenaline at the time of the test.
7665079 tn?1393187282 As a result, lightheadedness, nausea, and fainting can be provoked during the tilt table test. Fatigue and malaise may occur for a few days after the test is performed. The test itself is safer than the actual episode in real life because the event is monitored carefully. What Causes Neurocardiogenic Syncope?
Avatar f tn To members of this community, let me apologize for this being long. It's my first post and I'm desperate for a friend to communicate with, who is going through similar issues. I have my wonderful husband of 22 years and other family, but would like some give and take feedback with a "friend" here, online, who actualy EXPERIENCED PERSONALLY things similar to what I'm going through. I'm sorry this is lengthy, just feel facts are relevant.

Avatar m tn I don't know what time the testing was done. That impacts cortisol. Plus one round of testing - well you need several rounds - and a stim test. Any tanning at all?
Avatar n tn I usually wake up around 7 (once the Ambien wears off), feel like hell, take Florinef and Ritalin, feel even more like hell since the Ritalin makes my nerves go crazy, I usually can't get a nap in because the Ritalin won't let me sleep, so I'm on the couch allll day (yay Netflix!), Ritalin wears off around 8ish so I crash hardcore but STILL can't sleep so I have to take Ambien every night. I told my doctor I don't want to end up like Elvis!
Avatar f tn Western blot isn't that reliable. Igenex is better test, but you can test negative on it, like I did. Western blot or igenex result can be varied from one test to the next test. Sometimes it takes a few attempts to get positive results. Positive results are more likely after you underwent lyme treatment for a while. With Igenex test you would still need a medical practitioner to sign it off. It is one peeve I have about it.
Avatar n tn My brother is 22 (still living at home), former alcoholic, gambling addiction, used cocaine even after his girlfriend broke up with him because of it, used Oxycotton for almost a year until he OD'd with about 320mg in him, has been on Methadone for a year and is now at 100mg, and recently started on Lithium, clonazepam, Risperdal, and Adderall (not allowed to take Ritalin anymore, got caught snorting it on multiple occasions).
Avatar n tn The most common daytime problems for children are a form of urge incontinence where the child will leak a small to medium amounts of urine and giggle incontinence where wetting is triggered by laughter When a potty trained child has accidents that are triggered by laughter, the problem is often called Giggle Incontinence. While this problem is common, we have found it hard to find much data about it. Recently a reader of this Web page sent some more information which we are glad to share.
