False Positive Drug Test Methamphetamine
I recently took a preemployment drug test and failed for amphetamines& methamphetamines. I am wondering if it's possible my results are false positive?
Did you take them?: If you didn't take any amphetamines I would say there is a false test. The fact that you are asking this question suggests you are looking for an excuse for you to abuse pills. Own up to your problem and get help. Looking for excusing is looking for someone to help enable your downhill course into addiction and abuse. You should tell whoever is testing all your prescribed and OTC medications. ...Read more

What are some medicine that might come out positive as meth on a drug test medicine I take prometh/codeine, prednisone, advair, hydroxzine. False positive for meth
None of the above: There are many false positives for all amphetamines, but not specifically methamphetamine. Proper drug testing goes beyond the screening test — if that is positive definitive testing should be done, which will eliminate essentially all false positives. Every cold medication around can give a positive amphetamine, but not a positive for methamphetamine. You need to demand the definitive test. ...Read more

What could cause me to test positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine on a urine drug test that was confirmed using gc-ms when I do NOT use drugs?
What DO you take?: Someone else's specimen may have been mislabeled as yours. Or, you may be taking a medication that is "cross-reactive" with amphetamines and caused a false-positive result. Labs usually include such cautionary information in their reports. Go over the lab report and your meds with the ordering physician. ...Read more
Can adderall or Afrin nasal spray or a generic form of claritin d cause a positive methamphetamine result on a drug test?
Pseudoephedrine: Since the D in Claritin had been used to manufacture methamphetamine, I would suspect that it will produce a positive drug test. As for Afrin nasal spray, it is difficult to tell since any absorption would be minor and thus likely detectable only with extremely sensitive method. I hope other members in this panel will jump in on this topic. ...Read more

How does a home drug test detect drugs in your urine such as meth and why do some prescription drugs test positive?
Drug tests: Drug tests are used as much to determine what the person has not taken as to what the person has taken. Drug tests may look for illegal drugs. More often they test patients to make sure that they are taking their medications. Sometimes patients sell their medications or feel that they do not need the medication and stop taking it. Drug tests are used for these purposes. ...Read more
I was positive for math and amph. On hair drug test I have not done any meth what could cause this and how do I prove in clean
Been taking pseudophedrine HCl 60mg every 4-6 hrs for past 3 days due the flu. I have to take a drug test on monday. Will I test positive for meth?
No: If drug tests are properly done, the initial test is a screening test, which then must be confirmed with more complex and sophisticated testing. Screening tests may show positive for amphetamine with use of sudafed and other decongestants, but the confirmatory tests will not be positive. If whoever is doing the test does not do confirmatory testing, you should seek your legal options if positive. ...Read more
Currently taking Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) and since it has amphetamines in it, I am concerned I would come out as positive for meth in a drug test. Is this possible?
It is possible: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) vs. meth. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is dextroamphetamine. Methamphetamine has the extra Methyl and is a strong oxidant with organic chemicals. A positive drug test in your case should not affect you as long as you disclose the Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) intake as your current medication. ...Read more
Sure: An ION drug test is a screening test. Like any kind of test, anybody's result can be positive or be negative. A person who tests positive is a true positive if she has the substance, but is a false positive if she has none of the substance. The technology can be helpful in other settings, such as screening passengers and cargo at airports for drugs and explosives. ...Read more

Hi, i just took a hair follicle drug test for pre-employment it came up positive for both amphetimine and meth 1053 pgmg but I've been clean for a year?
Do you have very: Long hair? While hair follicle tests enjoy a mixed reputation, when they do work accurately, it's hard to refute to a potential employer. Most people take other tests that are shorter-acting (urine, blood), which is what you might ask your pre-employer to accept as proof that you are clear. ...Read more

Is it true that on a drug test Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is the same as methamphetamine?
Yes and no: Adderal is mixed amphetamine salts, and most screening tests only look for amphetamine, so both methamphetamine and adderal will show the same. However, on definitive tests (chromatography, mass spect and others) the difference between methamphetamine and amphetamine salts can be shown in most people. ...Read more

No: This is a "pop" myth. I actually autopsied a girl who eat a whole box of baking soda to beat a drug test. Her foolishness cost her life. If you're involved with meth, it is very likely to ruin everything that you cherish. The stories about meth users ripping their flesh from their bones before they die are true. Somebody loves you.

Often it is more like 3-5 days. The urine test rarely gives an incorrect finding if meth is in there. It can be detected in hair for much longer. Meth is highly addictive, dangerous & harmful to mental and physical health. ...Read more
The color change that occurs with taking cystex would not have an impact on the test to detect amphetamines in your sample. However, the color change itself may be enough to have the testers more closely scrutinize you with other tests.
Barring sudden and unanticipated reversal by the federal government of it's "war on drugs", the best option is to get help and get clean.
Easier said than done. ...Read more
