My urine test was positive for amphetamine but i don't use drugs. Why my test is positive ?

Hello, I have been on methadone 10mg 4x daily for 7 years due to cancer related pain. My pain management doctor writes for this as well as vicodin 10mg for break through pain. I also take depakote, celexa , propranolol, phenergan, sometimes adderall and vitamins , fish oil, multi, B complex, etc. My doctor requires a urine test monthly, which was fine with me. The other day I was informed my doctor will no longer be writing for me because my urine test was positive for amphetamine , methamphetamine, opiates, cocaine, esctasy and EE something. I was shocked. To make it worse, she said this is the 3rd in a row that has been positive. I have never done any of these drugs and have no idea how this is possible. I am a 40 year old housewife with 2 children and a prominent successful husband. I can assure you I do not do drugs. I mean truly scared to death of withdrawing. Then the pain, before the meds it was so bad I wanted to die to escape it and I can t imagine it has changed that much. On the other side I need to know why and how this has happened, what is wrong with my body to create such results? And what can I do to prove to my doctor I do not, never have and never will do those drugs. PLEASE help me, please.

Thanks for the query. If you have never dont any of these substances then why dont you go to another lab and get your urine tested. Sometimes lab errors can lead to erronious values and conclusions. Have a healthy living
