    Can anyone tell me what other drugs, over-the-counter or prescription, will test positive as meth on a urine drug test?

    Is it just me, or does anyone else feel less intelligent after reading that? I don't mean to flame. I'm just stating my state of shockedness.

    I beleive a lot of things will make you positive on initial screening, but when they gas it the only other thing than meth that show up as meth and amph would be benzphetamine (DIDREX). Although it is a perscription drug, you can obtain a script over the net. I beleive they will be changing the dose of the DIDREX tablets from 50mg to 37.5mg .


    I'm thinking there is another one also, adipex. I'm not too sure on the adipex though. Would have to really look into it.





    Well I just remembered another one and don't know how I forgot it because it is meth from the pharmacy, DESOXYN. I'm probably forgetting a couple more also.





    Who knows, I could be wrong about all the info I gave. I'm probably just saying what somebody told me. Edited by: clockwork

    my dad was taking medicine for ADD and it failed his drug test for meth. I think the drug might have been aderall which technically is meth, but it could have been something eles because he was prescribed several medications.

    Ritalin (Methylphenidate) will also test positive and perhaps even cold medication that contains ephedrine or pseudoephedrine.

    If you are going to try and play your dirty drug test off on a OTC or a scripted drug, it better be something that would also give a false positive after they CG/MS the sample. That blows most 99% of the choices out of the water. I would just stick with (Benzphetamine) DIDREX, it is the tried and true method. Then you have to come up with a script. This is however the easiest part of thye equation.





    And beleive me, if you scream false pos. TEHY WILL GAS THE SAMPLE. That is for probation and most employment tests.

    could you end up passing a drug test if you fail it because you take ritalin or some other ADD medication with a perscription

    Regarding hair follicle testing and ritalin. Ritalin or other ADHD drugs will not show a false positive. Regarding urine testing ritalin can cause a false positive urine tes with the cheaper urine tests, but if your company is using a certified company's , it will not produce a false positive , if in the remote chance it does, further gcms hair test will rule any illicit drug use out. Non stimulants such as strattera will not cause a false positive in any urine test. Can ritalin or other add drugs be tested for sure, but 99% of companies will not test for them , unless they are specifically looking at those drugs. Very expensive for a company.
