Adderall is made up of two drugs, amphetamine and dextroamphetamine salts
I would think the only way for you to have tested positive for methamphetamines is LAB ERROR. I would request a retest done by another laboratory.
The best of luck to you and congratulations on your sobriety.

Sorry to hear about your job loss. Amphetamine and dextroamphetamine make up adderall I am not pharmacist but when see etmine at the end of a drugs name I think stimulent. You say that you tested positive for methamphetimine. there is that etimne at the name of the drugs name. I think it was a false positive. Since they hold CDL drivers to a higher standard I can see the company wanting to let you go.
The place I worked also had random screening, the first positive would they sent the person to rehab the second you are gone. I would appeal the lab result. Great job on your alcohol recovery one day at a time.
