From a Monograph:

"Methylphenidate is thought to block the reuptake of norepinephrine and dopamine into the presynaptic neuron and increase the release of these monoamines into the extraneuronal space. "

Note the word "thought". It means they don't know.

Anyway, I find Atomoxetine (Straterra) similar to Methylphenidate, but with out as much of a rollar coster.
