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.

Rarely is surgery a total "cure, " so it is important to follow up or maybe get a second opinion. ...Read more
