This question has also been asked and answered here: How long do amphetamines stay in your system?
It will show positive for amphetamine. Have her list all medications she takes, bring the bottles with her to the test. It is a legal drug. However, it is a controlled substance, addicting and often abused.
3 day's to 7 day's depending if took the perscribed dosage or doubled up a bit. By all means do take the perscription with her as it will show positive for amphetamines. On the questioneir you fill out, DO list this as medication she has taken in the last 2 weeks. It's better to drop a dime on yourself than to loose your job for ommiting it.
