... medications. could one or more of my other medications of cause the positive test for meth amphetamine?
Yes, I tested "dirty" in general, "Lab Corp" turned in a report, I tested positive, for
amphetamines (Speed). Lab Corp costs me two jobs, after I was hired. On job no 1
I self disclosed giving Lab Corp letter from my M.D with DSM-IV Dx + copy of script.
A big mistake, Data got lost. Headhunters told me later, "once hired, to self-disclose, if urine tests are protocol of firm that hires you, with the manager, who hires, you, for reasonable accomodations. Lab Corp does not care (testing svc) Lost two jobs, with "Car Max" and "Hertz Corp" due to dirty urine, did not self disclose to my hiring manager, upfront.(Fear) "If they want you bad enough, they will make exceptions, but, due to fear of a lawsuit, "fessing up" after you are tested, was too late for me, as both national firms explained to me. Why? fear of discrimination lawsuit. Also, stay near the phone, after you submit Urine test, you have only 48 to 72 hours to speak with M.D or chemist, to explain, your DX, or FAX material, to firms like "Lab Corp" drug detection services. Once you are turned in to your new employer, it is too late, that is my history, coverng the past 12 years.
As far as I can research, hair and urine tests for amphetamine aren't very sophisticated so they can't tell the difference between the different salt combos. So if you don't tell them up front about your condition and script, they may jump to a conclusion since adderall and it's generics as well as other drugs are difficult to get without a prescription. And meth is easy to get.
The first step that the human body takes to break down Methylamphetamine is known as "Demethylation".
And, when you take the meth out of methamphetamine, you get Amphetamine, or adderall. Completely unavoidable.
While this is on of the most common reason employees fail a drug test, you should consult your prescribing physician about any possible metabolite interactions that could cause problems with a present or future employer.
