I tested positive for and amphetamines but I've never taken

Customer Question

I tested positive for mdma and amphetamines but I've never taken them. I had left my fiance's (a lawyer and TV show host on the CW network) house, picked up my mother, then was hit by a semi. I don't understand why the initial test art the hospital had said I was positive for those things. At all. Can you please help me understand this?

This is Dr. David

many drugs and cold medications contain ingredients which can cause false positives for amphetamines and MDMA on urine drug tox screenings

here is a list of medications and ingredients which can do this

Brompheniramine

Phenlpropanolamine

Non prescription nasal inhalers

Bupropion

Trazodone

Chlorpromazine

Promethazine

Ranitidine (Zantac).

here is an article about this

any positive urine screen positive result has to be confirmed with a MS/GC confirmatory test

if you haven't used any amphetamines or MDMA, then your confirmatory test will be negative

let me know if you have other questions.
