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.

My boyfriend has to take a pre eployment hair follicle test. He has been a heavy user or meth in past, but gave it up with the exception of 2 or 3 times in the last couple years. One of those times was @ 3 weeks ago. It had been several months since his last use. He snorted 3 small thin lines (1") over a 24 hour period. He had a haircut 1-1/2 weeks ago, and wears his hair @ 1 to 1-1/2 long. His test was supposed to be in 2 weeks, but may be moved up to be in the next week. What are his chance of passing? Should he get another haircut before? What is the minimum amount of use that will show up?

I quit smoking meth over 6 months ago. I had a 9cm hair test and there was still meth detected in all sections of my hair, including the root. The so called experts conclude I'm still using, right up until the time of the test. I'm going to lose custody of my kids and no one believes I stopped when I said I did. I need another expert to interpret my results or I'm screwed. I've changed my whole life around to keep my kids. And this dodgy hair science is costing my kids knowing their mother loves them without exception. Can anyone help?

Will a hair folicle test show any prior one time use of methamphetamine use in the week before the test. If methamphetamine was snorted one time 6 days before
test will it show on a hair folicle test given for pre-empoyment?

I'm on probation for methamphetamine and I recently got prescribed Wellbutrin. I've been doing hair follicle tests every three months for the last two years to prove to the courts that I have changed around my life. I was reading that Wellbutrin will cause a false possitive result for ampheamine in a urine test. I'm a little worried now. Does it show up like that in the hair follicle test as well? Is there a way to differentiate, if so?

Misti, your having hair follicle tests and you've stopped using. I'd like to hear more from you. Have the tests been accurate? Do they prove you stopped when you said? I smoked meth for 6 years but stopped using 9 months ago. My hair tests say I'm still using and I lost both my kids to my ex. I'm so frustrated!!

My hair follicle test came out clean. I didn't get a false possitive.

Hey gotta a call from GM to come do the first round of testing 7/01/13. Prior to the call I snorted crushed pills that contain methamphetames probably regularly for 2 months not lines but lil bumps usually when drinking in the evening. Anyways I hadn't smoked cannabis in bout a month like beginning of June end of may n quit immediately snorting the methamphetames the day GM called. I've been drug free (all frowns) for 30 days no nothing. They havwnt called me yet to do the hair test but I haven't gotten the letter of death either. Oh almost for got...I have dreadlocks that are just touching my neck. Not willing to cut my crown I shaved my pubes for clean hair bout 1 1/2 wks after I quit. I have Toxin Wash n the All Clear products but not sure if they'll work with all the other s*** in my hair just in case my pubes aren't long enough. Help...Me...Plez!! I really need this job regardless of how sum ppl may feel bout my life.

I feel for u, similar has happened to me but with urinalysis. My kids were taken solely on bogus test results.... Not a single accusation of abuse or neglect, and not a single bad comment about my parenting from anyone & dcfs took my children anyway... Preventively! The burden of proof is completely on me, yet they won't give me access to my samples for retesting. Its 'legal kidnapping' & it has to b stopped! Dcfs needs to have more evidence than toxicology tests in order to snatch babies away from their families!!

I've been taking asthma meds Bronkaid and I also take Phentermine for weight loss I recently tested positive for methamphetamines. I am not a drug user. I'm about to lose my children. Can these meds come up as a false positive? I'm also prescribed hydrocodone, somas, colazepate and temnazepam...i'm going out of my mind without my babies!!!

I agree! I quit my $55 k a yr job to work from home making hair bows and little childrens clothing. I did this so I could spend more time with my girls and then this happened.. no signs of abuse or neglect at first Cps was telling me I needed 30-90 days of in patient rehab! That's nuts! First of all I'm not an addict I'm in the middle of remodeling a new tome home and starting up a small business. This is whole situation is about to break me!

I have a question so cps came into my house on Thursday of last week and did hair folicle tests on everyone including me and my 3 children and my step son and husband well just yesterday they came and took my kids out of my home because my youngest apparently came up testing positive for meth but funny thing is nobody else's test results were in just hers! How could her test come back possitive when she is not around it she never ingested it she ain't around smoke and yes I was a user of the drug I shot up before all this went down so I just need a answer on this because basically I think the lady is lieing and doesn't think that I am going to do whatever it takes to get my kids back
