false positive hair test for methamphetamine
The DHS is claiming I tested positive for Amphetamines and methamphetamine on a hair test performed on July 27 2014 through omega lab.

I am prescribed methylphenidate 20mg and dexomethylphenidate 4mg daily. Do you have an opinion on the discrepancies and possible causes of the discrepancies that could have affected these results? ## What company did you use where you received the negative results? ## Omega ## Negative results came from quest labs ## The not reliable.

False Positive For Meth On Hair Test But Not Urine
I am prescribed 30mg adderall twice daily and just had to take court ordered hair test and urine test. On the urine test amphetamine was all that showed positive, but the hair test showed up positive for amphetamine and methamphetamine. How is that? ## possibly because adderall is methylphenidate which may come up as a meth by product or you have taken a different med or done meth at some point as hair test picks up substances taken alot longer time previous than a urine or blood test....... ## I have used meth before, but i have been clean for almost three years now. ## Im needing some scientific evidence or something to prove that it is a false positive. Something that will stand up in court because this is keeping me from being able to see my child. ## In order to get evidence of an ... ...

False Positive On Hair Follicle Drug Test For Methamphetamines
I have custody of my two oldest children and their mother has a problem with methamphetamines. I know this for a fact because that's why we separated, but she is claiming that the positive hair follicles that she has taken and failed are all because of her asthma medicine. Are there any asthma medications that cause a false positive on both methamphetamines and amphetamines on a hair follicle test?? ## Yes, there are some asthma medications that can do that. Do you know which one(s) she uses? Such information would enable me to check more precise details for you. ## I believe she is taking welbeutron....but the hair follicle tests are also coming up positive for meth ## My boyfriend has to take a pre eployment hair follicle test. He has been a heavy user or meth in past, but gave it... ...

false positive for meth in urine negative on hair
This guy has never used any kind of illegal drug..EVER. Urine test showed positive for meth, he independently retested by urine,was negitive, and then went and did a hair strand test dating back to 90 days earlier, which came back negative. Now, the company didnt inform him of his positive results until 11 days after the original test. So his independent urine test was obsolete at that point, but at least he has another test. They made him sign, at work, a peice of paper called a second chance. He signed under diress, not knowing what to do. He's been with company for 26 years. Randoms few times each year. What should he do now. Thinks he may have a saving grace with the neg. hair test. Is it likely the employer will retract and let things go back to normal? ...

false positive on drug test for methamphetamines
I recently took a hair follicle test and it came back positive for meth. I've been clean since April 24, 2013. I was on trazadone and Prozac until roughly July. My hair said I was positive with only 2100 points on the chart. Could it be from my meds? ## One of the great features of hair drug testing is that it is good at isolating the metabolite that for a particular drug which reduces the incidence of false positives. The number 2100 most likely means 2100 pico grams per milligrams or 2100 pg/mg. That appears to be low or recreational use. As far as the meds causing a false positive I doubt it. I don't know how many inches were tested and the complete time frame (when the hair was collected) so this is the best answer I can give. ## What OTC medications & prescription medic... ...

False Positive for Methamphetamine in my husband's hair follicle test
He takes Clonidine 0.2mg (1am, & 1pm); Amlodipine Besylate 10mg (1pm); Testosterone Cypionate (1ml) 1 per wk; & Hydrocodone 10mg (1 tab four times daily) can any of these meds cause a false positive on a hair follicle test? Cause CPS has taken our kids and is trying to build a case, but we don't do drugs and yet his hair follicle test was off the chart over 11,ooo mg showed up in his hair. I heard that Bupropion in Lisinopril can cause a false positive. And my husband used to use Lisinopril but has since switched to the Clonidine and the Amlodipine Besylate. I believe it is the Besylate that has built up in his system to be causint the false positive. What do you think? ## will randitine aka zantac produce a false positive for meth in a hair test? ...

False Positive Drug Test (Methamphetamine)
I took a pre-employment hair drug test recently and was told a week later that I had failed the drug test because there were high levels of meth...The thing is, I've never done drugs (not even smoked pot, and not even one cigarette!), and I've never been around people who do smoke or do drugs! Plus, I don't take any medication, not even over-the-counter (no Advil, Tylenol, NyQuil, nothing!). I'm as square as square can be. I don't even drink! I'm in total shock. I was told that I would receive a letter in the mail if I want to contest, which I absolutely do. What could be the cause of meth showing up in my system, and how do I go about contesting the drug test? And are false-positives more common than I think? It's the only explanation here... ...

Did my generic Adderall cause me to test false positive for methamphetamine??
I take d-amphetamine salt combos 20mg twice daily, and I recently had a hair drug test for pre-employment purposes. I tested positive for methamphetamine at a level of 570ng/mg, but I have never touched meth! They already did the GC/MS, and are now doing an isomer test, but they say that my adderall could NOT have cause a positive meth result! I've seen in other responses that this is possible, however I can't find any documentation to prove this. I've read over the Adderall and methamphetamine information profiles on this site, but still don't have the proof I need. Does anyone know where I can find this documentation? Please help! ## Adderall does contain amphetamine, which is commonly reported as a false positive for Meth-amphetamine. So you are not alone on this. Man... ...

Wiil Ranitidine Produce A False Positive For Methamphetimines In Hair Follicle Test And Where Is The Proof
While I was pregnant I was prescribed to take ranitidine for heartburn. After my child was born I took a urine test that came up negative. Cps sent these sample off and said I tested positive for meth. I submitted to a hair test on my child and a nail test on myself. The results were positive for meth. The Metabolites were very low in both of us but the amphetimine levels were high, but I had ephedrine during the c section. Will ranitidine cause a false positive in a hair test and where is the documented proof? They have taken my newborn away from me its five days now without touching or seeing her. I am desperate to get my baby back. If a doctor responds please be willing to submit documentation in writing. Thank you to anyone with the answer. ## This is terrible!!! And yes zantac does... ...

what else might test positive for methamphetamine
I am primary custodian for my 10 year old grandson. I've had him since he was born. I had an epiphany about my life close to 9 months ago and changed my habits drastically. My family decided that I was on drugs. So, one of them decided that they would call CPS. They came out and orally drug tested me and I was positive for crystal meth and methamphetamine! I take atenolol for high blood pressure and vitamins and that is it. How could this happen? The case worker told me that only two things give a false positive for that. (amphetamine salt that is found in 2 prescription drugs, neither of which I'm taking) They're letting me take a hair follicle test in a few days. How likely is this to repeat itself? Now my son and his ex wife are taking me to court for custody. Help me, pl... ...

Could amlodipine besylate give a false positive on a hair follicle test?
My husband had a false positive on a hair follicle test for methamphetamine and amphetamine and I think it is because he takes Amlodipine Besylate every day. The hair follicle test results were so high that he would have had to do meth everyday. I know for a fact that he does NOT do meth, but he does take the Amlodipine Besylate 10mg every day and Clonidine 1am & 1pm that is the only meds that he takes on a daily basis. Has there been any documented cases where the Besylate would register in a hair follicle test as a false positive? ## Pls help I am on clonondine and amlodipine for high blood pressure. I have clean from herion and any other narcotics for 3 mon. I tested positive for benzos twice. And I'm clean could this happen.. Desperate to get answers what can I do to prove m... ...

I just had a pos trst for meth. is it ther trazedone? ## Hi karen, How long has it been since you quit taking meth?
