Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question to HCM.

Once Methamphetamine is used, it is detected in the urine for up to three to five days. It is most reliably detected up to three days after last use. Once meth is in the system, there is no scientific way to speed up its exit from the system -- it has to be metabolized by the liver, which will take three to five days to happen.

Drinking water does not speed up liver metabolism at all. There are no hormones or supplements that will speed up metabolism. It always takes three to five days. The only way to make sure you don't test positive on a meth urine screen is to abstain from using meth, or to be tested outside the detectable window of three to five days.
