Brief Answer:
hii , neither of this can affect test result.

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear
I admire you for positive outlook.
Very glad to see you.
Meth addiction can show in blood if you have taken it only

Blood pressure and ranitidine do not affect your test result at all.

Niether of this can produce any variations in tests

Do u ever took meth??

Because it will take longvtime to matabolize and remain in body for longer period of time.

if you did not take it than go for reapet test.

Some time test comes false positive.

So if you did not take than feel relax and go for test agian.

Always here to help you.
Please feel free to ask.

Thank you.

Take care.

i have a friend that has been to the dr. in the past and he agreed something was deffinatly wrong with his liver and that it looked inflamed!but he never gave the full story to the dr. that he was a long time meth user for about 10 or more years and was a meth maker!so also exposed to anhydrous ammonia for the same amount of years!so my question is:being exposed to anhydrous and a meth user for so long causing liver damage,would that make it harder for his liver to flush toxins and release them from his body?how long would it take to pass a drug test?hes trying to turn for the better and joined a program and part of that is drug tests,he failed the first one then the second one and he honestly wasnt using!so were trying to figure out why?

Hi, my daughter died at age 25 from drug abuse, especially meth. I remember finding a brownish goo on her pillow case when she was a senior in high school. She also had a bad smell--like old onion. I'm wondering if you can tell me what that brownish stuff was? Thanks
