What would cause a negative drug screen while I was taking Adipex? I had been taking Adipex for a month like my doctor had prescribed. When I went into my appointment I had a drug screen and it came back NEGATIVE, I don't understand how this is possible since I was taking the medication? Needless to say, my doctor stopped my prescription for Adipex. Because she said it was not in my urine. I am so frusterated & upset because I was taking the medication like I was told & I was getting great results of weight loss. Please help me understand why I would get a negative urinalysis drug screen if I was taking Adipex?
A few things; it could be a false negative, a defective test or something else in your system. Any possibility you missed a dose, or two? That would do it also. I understand your frustration, your Dr should at least offer a retest or a 2nd opinion test from another source. Hope this helps.
Is that all there is to this story, College_girl??? If you are getting great results and taking your doses AS PRESCRIBED and NOT STARVING YOURSELF and NOT TAKING ANY OTHER DIET MEDICATIONS (OTC TYPES) then you maybe missed out on this one and may need to get a another doctor, if she has already discharged you. If not, get another appt. with her and explain everything to her and just how you were taking it... EXACTLY how you were taking it.
This stuff is habit-forming and maybe if you came up with a negative test... perhaps she thinks you are doing something else with it. The practice cannot afford to knowingly prescribe meds to someone and then fail a drug test. They can be pretty harsh and that is what appears has happened. Whether it is accurate or not... it is what it is. See if you can find another doctor or see if you can get back with this one.
Take good care and be your own advocate here, okay???
