Although it can vary depending on the person, phentermine should not be detectable in the urine after a period of around four or seven days, but will likely show-up if you take a drug test before that. Regardless, be prepared to show proof of prescription in case there are signs of amphetamines in your system. I tested positive negative and had been taking phentermine but they called and said it showed methamphetamine molecules, I dont understand..
Hi, Since phentermine is structurally similar to amphetamine, the tests can incorrectly identify phentermine as methamphetamine. The initial test is an immunoassay, showing the presence of amphetamines generally. The third test breaks out the meth into d-form and l-form isomers, with a percentage of each. I took about 8 Phentermine pills 30mg over a two month period.
I took it yesterday and drug tested myself with the 5 panel urine test. I was shocked to see I was positive for amphetamines. With some quick research I found out that Phentermine can lead to false positives. My question is, will this be detectable in my hair? I would have never taken this if I had known it was a controlled substance. However, as the article states, phentermine is not an amphetamine, it is a controlled substance in the same way that many prescription medications are. So as long as you have a prescription to show why phentermine is in your system then you have a reasonable explanation to show why you might test positive later this month.
Doctor prescribed it a year ago. I had a prescription a year ago and took 15mg x 2 days before my drug test. Did you have any issues? I havent taken one in 5 months, just yesterday I took a half and come to find out I got the call for a job interview and a drug screen this morning is there a possibility that it will still show up on the drug screen? I never took phentermine. Today i took a half a pill at 1: I have been going to pain managements for years and i have never had a bad urine screen until i was prescribed Phentermine and i was told my last test was positive for cocaine..
I have never had a positive urine only for what i am prescribed ,,but after taking Phentermine for 2 months after being prescribed.. Your stuck trying find another pain management. Talk to your family dr about staying on your meds until you find a new pain management. Tell the truth to new dr. Make sure you tell new dr. Your willing to stop taking them That you didnt realise the severity of it. It happened to me.
I just found new dr. And told him what happened. That ive never had a positive urine for anything over the past 10 years. I also was taking phentermine I am not drug user. I tested positive for coke now CPS has my chikdren someone please help!!! I just had to do an UA yesterday and not thinking that the medication would show up on the test.
Any words of advice or wisdom would be appreciated right about now. It was so embarrassing. If I took only one phentermine pill on Friday, and I have a urine screen the following Wednesday, how likely will it be out of my system? And if not, will I test positive for any substance? What about a false positive?? Hi Whitney, Although it can vary depending on the person, phentermine should not be detectable in the urine after a period of around four or seven days.
In 5 days it may still be in your system and could give a false positive reading for amphetamines on the urine test. Did your test come back positive? Im worried it will still be in my system. Boss called me 12 hours later for company UA. What do I do? Unfortunately, as phentermine is chemically similar to amphetamine, it may cause a positive result in urine screening tests for amphetamine.
A friend just informed me that this diet pill shows up as street drugs on a drug screen hence what lead me to this forum. Hi Cristina, Although it can vary depending on the person, phentermine should not be detectable in the urine after a period of around four or seven days Rachel, phentermine. I have taken a few drug test over the period of 2 years Both pre employment and random. Both times they never raised questions. In my opinion, if you take it as directed and have a prescription for it, you should be okay.
Some companies have a list of prescription drugs that they ban from any employee using while at work. So weather or not you have a prescription they can legally terminate you as long as they have a contract or employee handbook signed by you stating you read and agree with all in the book. Hope this helps you out. If you have any concerns about what you can take while at work, simply ask for the list of drugs that banned from your company. There are many medications that can cause false positives for many different drugs Tylonal, Benedryl, anti-depressiants, etc , but these false positives happen few and far between.
Be prepared to show your prescription just in case. What are the chances of getting a false positive reading after being off of Phentermine for 45 days? Hi Alex, the chances are pretty low. Although it can vary depending on the person, phentermine should not be detectable in the urine after a period of around four or seven days Rachel, phentermine.
I had taken phentermine a week ago then off for a week, then I took one on Saturday, today is Sunday. I will have an upcoming drug screening for new employment this week. Should I worry about it showing up? I am prescribed by a doctor but I would rather not have my new employer know reguardless. So depending when your drug screening is this week, the likelihood varies. Although it can vary depending on the person, phentermine should not be detectable in the body after a period of around four to seven days, but will likely show-up if you take a drug test before that.
So, be prepared to show proof of prescription in case there are signs of amphetamines in your system. I have a valid prescription for phentermine and am prepared to bring my medicine with me to the lab in the morning as proof. Or are they just concerned with ensuring you are taking them legally? Hi Genny, thanks for your comment!
Often times people that take one pill per day are on a higher dose pill e. I take phentermine I have for a long time this is the first time I tested positive for amphetamine. I take losartan metformin Gabapentin and Zantac when their doctor called to ask me about my prescriptions I told him which ones I had and he told me that none of those could test positive for amphetamine and my job is now on the line I have been suspended. As I lost my desired weight I started to taper the phentermine approximately once to twice a week for approximately months.
I took a pre-employment drug screen with a false positive amphetamine result! I now have to share my phentermine prescription with my potential new employer! I may have had 3 in my life. Hi, I have been on phentermine for 3 months. On random 5 panel tests and on ones sent to the lab, neither have come back positive for amphetamines, which is great! It shows up as amphetamines only. I know this first hand from being federally drug tested. Depending on the drug screen , it CAN show up as methamphetamine!
