I recenlty took a first check home drug test. I tested negative for thc (faint line yellow sample). A half out later I took a standard dod drug test. My concern is when my perscription (adderal) puts me over the the threshold for that controlled substance, will I then tested for thc again on a 15ng level with a gc/ms machine and possibly be flagged?
Hi
I am a medical review officer
Yes, you will test positive for amphetamine. On the screening test and the gc/ms.
But if you have a prescription which is verified by the MRO,
You will NOT BE FLAGGED.
I hope this helped! Please leave positive feedback if it did :-)

I appreciate the fast response but just to clarify. Testing negative for thc on the screening level (50ng)will not warrent furth cause to test on the gc/ms level (15ng) and at that point they will ONLY be looking to see if im abusing my prescription of adderal.

That is correct: if you are negative on screening, they stop there
