Doctors, can my albuteral inhaler cause a positive result for meth?

Doctors, can my albuteral inhaler cause a positive result for meth?

Any time testing is used for forensic purposes, where you can be excluded from a job, or fired, or have probation/parole revoked etc etc the initial screening test MUST be followed by a more sophisticated confirmatory test, which can tell the difference between a false and true positive. If they are not confirming the test, I would seek legal counsel. ...Read more

Would smoking Meth on a reg basis cause my Hgc levels to stay low enough to give a negative result on a pregnancy test?

No: Please stop smoking meth especially if you want to become a mother. Some of what you have heard from "drug educators" about other recreational drugs is not true, but the warnings about meth are. You'll rip or cut your skin loose before you die. Why not go clean, get better friends, and when you are ready, head a wonderful family instead? Somebody loves you -- do this for them if not yourself. ...Read more

Can adderall or Afrin nasal spray or a generic form of claritin d cause a positive methamphetamine result on a drug test?

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
