Bupropion (generic Wellbutrin). Used as an antidepressant, for weight loss, and smoking cessation, bupropion may lead to a positive screen for amphetamine, methamphetamine, and LSD.
Most resources online say Wellbutrin will not show up in a drug test; however, according to my Davis drug guide it can cause a false positive for amphetamines
Not much more to add. Laurie is truly a gift here with sincere answers to folks' concerns and questions. In my short time here, I'd even suggest she is the angel of drug.com when it comes to psychotropic medication and mental health issues. Laurie - YOU ROCK! As for your case Jaspun86, as long as you have a valid script for the wellbutrin and have been taking it as directed, you should be protected from an employer's consequences for testing positive. I hope that is your case and that you are not fishing for a way out of a jam.
I take wellbutrin xl, it can cause a false positive for amphetamines.
I agree with Laurie, show them everything that can help you as she says ( prescription, etc... ).
Wellbutrin XL is an antidepressant that should not affect the drug test. What did you show dirty for? Do you have a doctor's prescription for this med? Be sure to advise the folks who are drug testing you that you take this medication by showing them the bottle or prescription and you should be alright.
I'm not an expert on this topic, but if you have been in contact with the drug you showed positive for such as the smoke from marijuana that is enough to cause a positive result. Again I don't know what you showed positive for so it is kinda hard to say.
Hopefully, someone else will chime in here and give you more advice.
