The DHS is claiming I tested positive for Amphetamines and methamphetamine on a hair test performed on July 27 2014 through omega lab. Knowing that I have not used methamphetamine since June 2013, I had a second hair test performed on August 11 2014 through another testing lab which came back negative for amphetamine and methamphetamine. 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 ... ...

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.

false positive for meth in urine negative on hair
Post a Reply
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
24 Replies RSS
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.

False hair test for methamphetamine
3 Replies RSS
Hi, my bf had to take a lot of Claritin D last summer and this summer. He had to take a hair test. They said he tested positive for methamphetamine. I know for a fact he has never touched methamphetamine. So just wondering if taking c d can cause a positive to methamphetamine? ## Taking Claritin should not cause a false positive for methamphetamine. One of the big advantages of hair drug testing is that it is good at differentiating substances. You could talk to an MRO (Medical Review Officer) to see what might be interfering with the test. An MRO is a doctor trained to interpret drug test results by looking at the over all picture to see what might be happening. You can find an MRO in your area at aamro.com. You could also do you own Hair 5 Drug Panel test to verify results. If the hai... ...

My son with autism had been given a hair follicle drug test and has tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine. However my other son who shares the same living quarters etc with his brother test results were negative. I have full custody and know they have not been exposed to either of those substances. Are there any medicines that could cause this false positive showing up in my oldest son? He has autism and takes Abilify and Celexa, also cold and allergy medicines as needed. Could this possibly be the cause of a false positive? ## Usually when people post a question like this or call me for advice I tell them to get a consult with an Medical Review Officer (MRO).

I'm a non-user who tested positive for methamphetamine. I'm almost 40 years old, male, about 160 pounds, in good shape. I have tested positive for methamphetamine and I need help so I know who to contact based on the false positive. All I currently take is a no Afrin nose spray with menthol because I have bad allergies, a NyQuil cold and sinus, along with some other cold and sinus medicines, just depending on how severe my sinuses and allergies are. Ladies and gentlemen I could use any help possible so that I know who to contact, be it Afrin or NyQuil, to prove that this is wrong information. Thank you so much for your time. ## Hello.

Will Lunesta cause a positive urine drug screen for methamphetamine? ## No, from what I'm finding, the active ingredient in Lunesta, which is Eszopiclone isn't known to cause a false postive for anything on drug screenings.

I have tested positive twice now and cps is trying to have a court order to place me out of the home. I wasn't taking methamphetamine. I am prescribed multiple meds. help me prove that it was a false positive. ## What meds are you taking? Certain meds (Adderall) may give a false positive for methamphetamine . Did they perform a second test by a different more expensive method to verify the original results. what were the results of the second test? ## I have worked for CPS and administered those tests. Adderall will make you test positive for Amphetamines only, which is fine. If you test positive for both Amphetamines and Methamphetamines its a positive for Meth.

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... ## Blood test !... ...
