Posted on Tue, 8 Dec 2015
Question: I recently tested positive for amphetimines during a routine drug test. I take trazadone Asa sleep aide, I also take Xanax for depression and anxiety. However, I take my meds daily and my XANAX did not show but somehow this amphetimines did. The monitor told me me it was just above the acceptable level but she still has to report it to the court. Terrified!
