How long do you need to stop Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) before a drug test?

Depends: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) excretion in urine will depend on the ph of your urine but by three days should probably not show up. If it does it will show up under the category amphetamine. Because it is a prescribed drug any concern about being positive can easily be handled by providing the screening entity with a copy of the rx bottle that will have all the appropriate identifying demographics on it. ...Read more

Take prescription: Bottle with your name on the label with you & it won't matter. If you've been on it for more than 7- 10 days, it will show up as amphetamines/methamphetamines on a hair test. It can show up for ~ 3 days in urine, but it could be longer, depending on your weight, metabolism, etc., but there's no need to stop it as long as you take your bottle with you. ...Read more

Can a blood drug test determine how much of my. Kolonopin and Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) I've taken all month long or is there a.detection period? Why not do a urine test

Can a blood drug test determine how much of my. Kolonopin and Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) I've taken all month long or is there a.detection period? Why not do a urine test

Yes: If you are taking your medicine on a consistent basis, a Steady State Serum or Blood test should provide a pretty good indication of your adherence to directions. Urine Drug testing only gives a qualitative indication of your medication taking history-in other words-yes you are taking or no you're not taking it. The blood level is an instant snapshot of your blood level so it is difficult to fool. ...Read more

Will Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 30mg affect a drug test after one dose?

Yes, depending on: When testing is done relative to when it was taken. However, "drug screens" are read as positive by the concentration of a drug or its metabolite in the urine sample; therefore, depending on timing, the concentration may fall below the cut-off point for a "positive" screen. It isn't a problem for anyone who can show a prescription bottle in his or her name. Diversion is a different story. ...Read more

Urine + for ritalin: I take vyvanse regularlly and was recently given a random drug test at the psych dr. But tested positve for ritalin not vyvanse? ANS: ritalin and vyvanse are very close chemical cousins so depending on which test they used they may either show + test but they cannot tell which one it is. Ask your team doing the test if they cross react in the test they use. ...Read more

Is taking an old prescription (Vyvanse) legal? Could I be fired for a positive drug test, even if I have the prescription for it, though it is old?

Complicated: Yes, depending on the company's policies, you could be fired - even if the Rx was current. You'd have a good fight if it was, but you could still lose. Being out of date, your case would be very weak if they wanted to be tough. If you took it for the medical purpose, I feel bad for you but it was still a risky idea. If you took it for fun - it was more foolish. You can learn and hope for the best. ...Read more

Took 2 30mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) Sunday, 3 Tuesday & 3 Wednesday (today). Have a urine drug test in 6 days. Will the Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) be out of my urine within next 6 days?

Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) in Urine: It is important to understand that each of us metabolize and eliminate medications in our own unique way so time frames given cannot be taken as being exact and applicable to the entire population. Having said that, most patients should have no detectable amphetamine in the blood or urine five days after the last dose was taken. Remember that this applies to "general population samples." ...Read more

Hair drug test in 3 wks and I have taken a total of 125 mg of vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) in the past 3 months. The last dose was 25mg a week ago. Will I test positive?

Hair drug tests: Generally detect drugs that have been used 3 or > times within 90 days prior to testing, including use that occurred 7-10 days prior to testing. Hair testing picks up low-dose amphetamine (AMPH) use; Quest Lab's cut-off for a + screen is 300 pg/mg (picograms/milligram); other labs use 500 pg/mg. It's possible that your AMPH will " show up" at a level under the cut-off point. ...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?

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

I mixed up mine an my daughter's meds I took her 30 mg vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) an had to take a 12 panel drug test for Dhs, I had taken the meds about 4 days before?

Is there ANY type of drug test out there that can determine if someone took Adderall vs. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)? or will they all just tell you amphetamine?

Not from what I hear: Perhaps someone knows otherwise - but I've never heard that they can discriminate between amphetamines. Good luck. ...Read more

I took ONE 50mg Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) Saturday, I have a drug test Monday, I've never taken this drug before. I play sports everyday, will I pass my drug test?

Maybe: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is converted to amphetamine. The conversion takes place slowly, and continues even 24 hours after ingesting the drug. If you were tested on Sunday, you would definitely have amphetamine in your urine. But amphetamine is cleared very quickly, so once the Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) has been converted, the amphetamine will quickly disappear.

Will it disappear by Monday? That's a toss-up. ...Read more

I took a drug test for probation yesterday I have a scrip for adderall ran out and took vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) can they tell the difference on a lab tests?

No: But it is against the law to take someone else's prescrtion medication. You are still risking your parole because they can look on the state registry and find the full dates for your prescription. Be perfect with your medication. They can even ask for pill counts!! ...Read more

I accidentally took a 40 mg vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) today. Have drug test for job in 4 days. If I drink a lot of water will I pass? Really freaked out

Declare it: If you truly took it accidentally, there are 2 possibilities. If prescribed, you should be fine taking it, nothing to hide, it should appear in your active meds. If this was prescribed to something else in the house and you took it by mistake you still should be fine as long as you declare it. Otherwise how do you explain taking "accidentally" medicine that was not supposed to be around you? ...Read more

How. Far back can. Kolonopin and. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) be. Detected in a blood. Drug test. Can. The levels be detected and y doesn't my. Doctor just do a urine. Test?

Depends: On the sensitivity of the test. Honesty is the best policy, though. So if you're prescribed these meds, it's most likely u're doc wants to b sure you actually are taking them. If not, best to disclose that you've been using them. Your doc can't treat you safely with other meds if a/he doesn't know all the medications you are taking. ...Read more
