Possible: Certain drug screening tests are sensitive enough to tell the difference between the two drugs. Other tests detect methamphetamine and Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) as one class. In this case, Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) could give a positive result. After screening tests, labs can use confirmation tests to specifically determine what drug was in your body. If you have a legitimate prescription, you may want to inform them.
