No: Drug testing is very specific testing about what chemicals are being evaluate. There is no cross over with Amoxicillin and usual drugs that are tested.

No: Drug screens have evolved with new technology to eliminate other medicines as possible contaminants. Mass spect/as chrome is now used to double check a possible legal drug as a contaminant.
