how long does meth stay in your system?

It depends

Open-uri20121206-30512-zaqbgd
It depends on your metabolism, but meth is generally detectable in urine for 1-4 days after use. Urine drug tests are the ones most often used. Meth can also stay in your hair for up to 90 days, though. It's an extremely dangerous drug, and best not to use it at all.

How long does meth stay in your system?Max?

Which "meth???"

Methadone
methamphetamine is a short-acting drug, but it has longer acting metabolites which are what are measured in urine. After a single dose, it's half-life is about 4 hours, but metabolites can be found for 2-3 days. After regular heavy use, it can be detected for 5-7 days. Methadone (also called meth) lasts for 3-5 days, and in long-term use metabolites can be detected for weeks.

How long does shake and bake meth stay in your system? My brother swears he is clean but it's still showing up in his system.

Only several days

Amphetamine
even in very heavy long-term users, methamphetamine and its metabolites are relatively short-acting, and will give positive urine drug test for 3-4 days at most. False positives for amphetamines, however, are very common, and may show up + with virtually any medication used for colds - sudafed, ephedrine, phenylephrine and others. Confirmatory tests, however, should be negative.

How long does meth stay in a baby's system?

Meth detectable in poop

Feces
But read this from a website I found,:I used to work in a medical foster home for drug-affected babies who were taken at birth by the state. Most of these babies required 24 hour nursing care. I think the real question is not "will the drugs still be in the baby's system" but "how affected will this baby be by the drugs it's mommy was taking?" I could not agree more. It will be detectable in the Babies first poop called meconium.

Define remain

Amphetamines
Urine studies from a newly born infant would likely be clear if the mom had abstained for the week prior to delivery. If there were suspicions about drug use, the hospital staff could send the babies poo for studies that would show meth use within the preceding month or months.

How long does meth stay in my unborn babys system for? I have used during this last month.

Please tell doctor

Amniocentesis_for_this_pregnancy
Please tell your doctor you're using meth, and get help. You're risking your own health plus the health of your baby. You may wonder whether meth will show in your baby when born, but the real problem is that ANY maternal meth abuse is associated with premature birth, growth retardation, & long-term learning problems in children. http://www.crystalmethaddiction.org/Meth_and_Pregnancy.htm

Dr. Evan M. Altman answered:

How long will meth stay in your system with a urine drug test?

10 days or less

Urine
For most individuals having used the substance, the general consensus is often noted as a maximum of 10 days that methamphetamine remains detectable via a urine drug test. 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 much longer. Meth is highly addictive, dangerous & harmful to mental and physical health.
