Hi Scott

 

A false positive for what?

 

If you are prescribed this medication there should be no problem.

 

Hope this helps.  Thank you for your question.

If you or anyone you know has had a false positive drug screen for meth and wasnt using meth at the time. If you are prescribed adderol, than that is what triggered the false result for meth. Myself along with many others have dealt with this very issue and so forth I have typed up a petition that Im sending to the highest offices in order to get something done about this havoc issue. Awareness is the main key and our lives depend on the outcome of drug screens.
