Brief Answer:
Possibility of false positive

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.

Adderall and amphetamone are different substances and in standard drug screening urine test, there should not be false positive result if you didn't take amphetamine. There are very rare reports about such false positive results and there is much higher possibility that you took amphetamine incidentally. The best way would be to repeat the test, but you should highlight before that you tale adderal. If there is still positive result, then you should insist on blood testing which will reveal real results.

Wish you good health.

black vomit and stool ***LONG WITH DETAILS BUT PLEASE, PLEASE READ*** AGE. 41 MALE HX. HTC, HEP C-was treated for 41 weeks and told it was cured, ETHOL/DRUG ABUSE, clean for 1 year. GERM, Bipolar. Takes depokote, cymbalta, zestoretic, taztia and OTC Zegrid for severe GERD I AM Writing for my husband and i am an RN. he has had nausea/vomiting *small amount each time generally ) for 6 months. today while sleeping woke up to vomit a large amount of black vomit with chunks of what looked like ground liver or coffee grounds. true black, when he spit in the white sink it literally looked like liquid charcoal. at this point I insisted to go to the E.D. upon arrival they did insert an N.G. tube which returned another 200 C s of the same black material. mind you he has not eaten a meal in 48 hours. last meal was scrambled eggs. he has been drinking adequate fluids and always does. no s/sx of dehydration present. after the black material in the canister it then turned to green obvious bile. while tube was in he did vomit about 200 C s black fluid/material again they did labs, head c.t. his sodium was 124, again Hydra tion is not an issue and labs were drawn prior to tube etc. his h/h was 15 and I don t remember the other but was WNL. anyway they said the drug screen was positive for opiate 1000 and said it had to be an illegal substance due to the lab they use does not check for RX drugs such as oxycodone. he has been clean for one year and INSIST HE HAS NOT USED OR TAKEN ANY NARCOTICS of any type. at this point he was being admitted for his sodium level. THE HEAD CT was negative. We haven t sought treatment due to lack of insurance, and he lost his job this week. we knew the only way he could be seen or treated was to go through the E.R. He has a state insurance that will only pay primary care doctor, medication, and the psychiatrist. we are in a very difficult position and hoping you could please give me some direction, or gauge how severe the symptoms are to include 124 sodium level. The doctor his PCP, was rude, and made a fool of him in regard to the positive opiate screen insisting it must be heroin, which by the way he has never even tried. his prior drug of choice was cocaine. as the doctor was belittling him he was truly pushing his bipolar buttons calling him a liar, the he was unreliable, couldn t believe any medical symptoms etc, also saying I m your PCP so im obligated to treat you now but when this is over, you are discharged from my practice. it was quite a scene to say the least. he also knows me professionally as I am an RN, he was also speaking directly to me as if my husband were not there saying things such as he is a liar why do you put up with this. I only give this information to explain why he went AMA. being bipolar and emotionally immature with rage issues I was fearful he would become violent at this point. Due to the way he was spoken to and humiliated, oh the doctor also said you must be drunk, due to his altered mental status, lethargy and excessive sleepiness while there despite the blood ETHOL screen was negative. by the way, the drug screen was urine and i find it hard to believe that he was positive for the opiate panel but the panel doesn t screen for oxy. etc. therefore it must be a street drug such as heroin. no matter what, any drug is unacceptable I agree completely but do not know if this test is reliable and if the 1000 is significant to truly be a positive At any rate due to the humiliation and his underlying bipolar with anger issues etc, he proceeded to remove his own I.V. and left the hospital as they were about to take him to the medical floor for admission. after returning home he had a BM which again was the same black charcoal like liquid. I did not actually see any stool however the water in the bowel was opaque black/gray with the water. he has not eaten at all due to the intense nausea the past few days, and nothing he would have eaten is black. it truly does look like activated charcoal, and like I said the vomit woke him up and did vomit all over the bed and was a large amount and forcefully projected with chunks/grounds. We haven t sought treatment due to lack of insurance, and he lost his job this week. we knew the only way he could be seen or treated was to go through the E.R. He has a state insurance that will only pay primary care doctor, medication, and the psychiatrist. we are in a very difficult position and hoping you could please give me some direction, or gauge how severe the symptoms are to include 124 sodium level. Thank you for reading this and I sincerely hope you will share your thoughts and advise me of how serious this may be so that i know how to move forward. Sincerely, Maggie YYYY@YYYY

I just took a pre-employment drug test and prescribed Klonopin 0.5mg PRN. After reading around, it seems these drug tests will detect 200ng/mL. If I took 0.5mg of Klonopin once per day for 3 out of 5 days leading up to my drug test, will that be detected in the 200ng/mL? What does 200ng/mL equal? I m 5 7 , 130lbs, fast metabolism. I know this should be a non-issue since it s prescribed, but I didn t think to mention it for the drug test and will not be excited to have to explain it if they even give me the chance.

I had an UTI and was told Niacin would help it go away. I had no money and had this at home so I took one 500mg cap a day and drank plenty on water for 7 days. I ended up getting a random drug test and the results said my creatinine was too low. Iddidn t even know what that was but they assume I tried deputing my urine and that s not the case. I told them this stuff was the only thing I have ingested, so.. I have 2 questions.. Does Niacin help with UTIs? Also could niacin make my urine test results on creatinine levels occur that way. I m curious and scared and could really use answers, and from someone who for sure knows the right answer.
