My teenage son is about to have a physical that will include a drug test we never divulged that he was on Adderall. I am guessing it will show up in a drug screen but for how long after his last dose?
This question has also been asked and answered here: How long does adderall stay in your system?
Amphetamine is detectable in the urine 1-4 days after a single use and longer after regular use. However, if he has a script for the adderall and is taking them legitamatly, than there shouldn't be a problem if you bring the bottle or script to the test or have them contact your dr.
Information = Freedom
Something that I found out when I was randomly drug tested at my job was the fact that even though Adderall was in my system and the testing facility had verified through my pharamacy that I did have a prescription, my employer did not have access to the fact that I was on the med. I found that to be interesting.
The half life of Adderall is about 10 hours.
This means that every 10 hours, half of the previous amount of Adderall in the body disappears.
For example, if you took 10mg of Adderall at 12AM (midnight), at 10AM 5mg of Adderall will be left in your body. At 8PM, 2.5mg will be left, and so forth until there is 0mg left in your body.
