    first post, a little nervous. I used the search, but couldnt find anything quite like what i was after.

    Background info:
    SWIM was recent suspended for six school days for substantial evidence that he had purchased and consumed a marijuana brownie on school campus. SWIM had his re-admit conference with the drug counselor and vice principal this afternoon. He was forced to adhere to a strict set of rules, including random UA. Though SWIM has talked with his friends who suggest they are very infrequent, he wishes to make sure...

    SWIM was gifted four 20mg Focalin XR yesterday. He took two yesterday (hasn't slept since), and plans to take the remaining two today so he can finish all the work he missed while suspended. What SWIM would like to know is

    1) Whether or not it is known if dexmethylphenidate hydrochloride is even tested for in high school UA's; and

    2)If SWIM had taken 80mg of Focalin in a 48 hour period, how long will is take for all traces of said focalin to dissipate?

    (for extra info, SWIM is 17 years of age, does NOT have a prescription for this drug, is 6'0, 165 lbs, with a fast metabolsim. SWIM is very active as he is on the varsity baseball team)

    SWIM would appreciate an answer asap as he is going back to school tomorrow and is a little worried about how "random" his UA's are.


    thank you!

    Hey,
    Methylphenidate is not tested in a standard drug test, and SWIM is not familiar with it ever being tested an extended drug test. Although it can be tested for, if SWIM was SWIY, he wouldn't worry about it in urine tests.

    SWIM thanks SWIY. SWIM has heard that even if it is tested for, it only lasted in the body for 1-3 days, and as tomorrow is SWIM's first day back at school, he doesn't think he will be tested tomorrow or friday, giving SWIM plenty of time to cleanse
