Hi, i am voluntarily drug testing for CPS because my daughter's father (who had physical custody) passed away suddenly due to a motorcycle accident leaving her "without a legal guardian" I have a previous history of using Methamphetamine. I am clean now or so i thought. Yesterday my test apparently showed positive for Methamphetamine. I know i haven't used. So far i have only came up with two possible explanations. 1. I just had to serve my ex boyfriend with a domestic violence restraining order. To make a long story short, not thinking, I ate some fast food that he insisted on leaving for me. And the 2nd being a cold medicine that I just remembered. I took one pill approximately 2 maybe 3 days ago called ST. JOSEPH DECONGESTANT-FREE HBP. Is it possible that this medicine caused a false positive? Thanks in advance for listening and any insight.

Re: jade (# 10)

Sudafed can show a false positive for methamphetamine and so can Zantac, the prescription medication for heartburn.

Adderall should show up as amphetamine if it is confirmed by GC/MS which is the gold standard of urine or hair drug testing.

Re: Expomed (# 3)

If I had adderall in me and it showed up as methamphetamine, and he sent it to a lab, what will the lab show?

Hmmmm, that is very interesting. I have had 2 DCFS cases here in LA and in neither one of them was I required nor even asked to test for them. After a 6 year incarceration sentence I paroled and never was I asked to test for drugs...even as a delinquent juvenile getting out of juvi hall I never had to provide a urine sample...of course never in my life did I ever tell on myself or ever admitted to anything. I am 42 now and have zero drug charges; as a kid, the sheriffs found some zig zags on me but that's it. I sold drugs for over 10 years and drugs have been a part of my daily life as long as I can remember. It's too bad so many good people get caught up with things like that. Drugs don't make bad people by the way - bad people make drugs....

Re: Shayner (# 147)

I think you can request to submit to a hair follicle test that will show most drug use within the last 90 days. Although you may have to pay out of pocket, if you truly haven't used that should show your innocence. Other than that you may have to hire a family law lawyer. Best of luck, I hope you get to see your grand babies!

I was asked by CPS to submit to an oral drug screen and I cooperated without hesitation. They said it was required if I were requesting visitation with my grandchildren. I also submitted to a background check (passed) fingerprinting (no offenses). Why? My daughter whom lived with her children In my household and whom was also on formal probabtion for a prior possession charge tested positive on her random drug screen and the children were removed from my home. When I submitted to the test I tested negative and was supplied a copy of my results. CPS later informed me that they had been notified per the laboratory that my specimen showed trace amounts of methamphetamine, below the cutoff. They are still 8 weeks later withholding my visits because of this false report. What recourse do I have?

Shannon, one of the main features of hair drug testing is that it has very low false positives so the prescription or over the counter (OTC) drugs won't show up. I wouldn't worry about a false positive for THC.

Does the retest mean they will take a new sample? Make sure the collector and the donor (you) sign and initial a chain of custody. If they didn't do the on the first sample it is possible they could have mixed up the sample at the lab or point of collection. Good luck.

Thank you, I'm kind of decimated by this whole ordeal. You don't know me, so based on that, I called the MRO the clinic had given. He stated, he was on computer and couldn't find my file. Wth?

The testing lab stated, for $125 (on me) , they'll retest.

Me, You might want to consult with an MRO to see what might be interfering with the test. An Medical Review Officer (MRO) is a doctor who goes thru extensive training to determine what is going on with any type of drug test. You can find a MRO at aamro.com. I am not affiliated with the association.

I work in the oilfield, don't do drugs. I had a hair follicle test come back positive for methamphetamine. Hair sent for GC/MS, same result.

The only med I've taken was nyquil cold and flu 1 month ago.

So yes, you can fail a hair test if you're methamphetamine-free.

I have a question. I am drug testing for cps and in the last month they say i failed for methamphetamine and i haven't done anything at all. They said i failed june 29th but passed the 28th and passed the 30th. That isn't possible is it? And the only medication i take is insulin cause i am a diabetic. I need advice in a bad way.

TheHairTestingGuy Says:

Missy, those drugs should not interfere with a drug test. I am assuming that was a urine drug test. You might want to read some of the other post but whatever lab did the drug testing should have done a GC/MS confirmation test to be sure of ALL false positives. If they used a urine dip test like you would use at home those results have to be confirmed by GC/MS.

My boyfriend was given Dilaudid and Morphine for an on the job injury and tested positive for methamphetamine. He doesn't take or do methamphetamine. Do these two medications play a role in his drug test?

TheHairTestingGuy Says:

The marijuana could have been laced. He probably could have figured that out on the basis of how he felt during the "high" because that is a high level of methamphetamine. It's hard to say if one of the other prescriptions could have interfered with the results. Only a Medical Review Officer can answer that question. You can find an MRO at aamro.com. I am not affiliated with that organization.
