Tested Positive for Meth and have NEVER used?

I am on the following meds..

Can any of these drugs test positive for meth?

Please help me! I have never used meth in my life and haven't been on any "street drugs" in many years. They have sent it to a lab. But I'm still worried. Thanks

If you really haven't used meth then you really don't have much to worry about. More than likely the drug test they gave you is what is known as a "strip dip" test. It is a piece of paper that they dip into your urine and it changes color if it detects cetain substances. They are very unreliable but, very cheap so they still use them. When they send your urine to lab they will use something along the lines of a gas chromotography which is a more reliable way of identifying substances. You should demand to know what kind of test they are giving you and then do research on their methods. If they are not giving you test with the latest methods you can ask if they can have the urine test by another lab because of the meds you are on. If you really did do meth, detox for 5 days and retest or take someone else's pre-heated urine in. If you can afford it, take yourself into your doctor and have another test taken immediately to have on record if they try to can you! You can buy "strip dips" at Walgreens and other drugs stores. I think they are called narcotics detection panels. Good Luck
ephedra use may generate a positive finding for methamphetamine.
Tests can be mixed up or wrong. Things can give false negatives. Take it again if you have to, even at your own expense.
A few things...

#1- It is not funny that you are on all those medications as another poster suggested. I hope that you are ok.

#2- Have you been around anyone who was smoking it?

#3- All drug tests can have a false positive. Maybe have them test you again to be sure.

I am unsure of what, if anything would cause a Meth test to come up positive.

I wish you luck!
