Strattera and drug screening

Does strattera give any false positive reading for a urine or hair follicle test? Would it come up as a amphetamine or methamphetamine, or any other illegal substance?

   Basically it is an antidepressant.  Has no stimulants in it.  Thus I would think that it should pose no problem with urine or hair tests - unless, they are screening for antidepressants.
