what will help pass a amphetamine/methamphetamine urine drug

Customer Question

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
There is no intervention that has been proven to allow a person to pass a drug test when the drug has been taken. It is reasonable to drink plenty of fluids to flush the system and dilute the urine, which is most effective for people that are close to the threshold of detection. The labs are also aware that this may be done, so will check for if the urine is too dilute. Therefore, it is reasonable to drink about ½ gallon of fluid in the day leading up to the testing. There are many products that claim to help people pass drug tests, but all of them also advise drinking plenty of fluids, and none have been shown to be more effective than only drinking the fluids. The labs also have become wise to additives that people add to the urine, such as bleach or vinegar, so may be checked by the lab. Therefore, the only approach that is reasonable is to drink plenty of fluids.

Hello from JA
The experts answer is entirely correct.

Unfortunately there is no way to beat a drug test other than make sure you have not taken the drug a long enough time before the test.

IN your case for this drug combination it is going to be 7 days.

Those are the facts.

Is there a question that is not being stated here?
Or something else I can help you with?

Hello
The only way they should be continually getting a false positive is if they are not doing GC/MS confirmatory testing.

I am not sure if this is your question, however, Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry would sort out any false positives.

It would identify the specific drugs..period.

Therefore, if they have not done this, they do not have a good argument that you are positive.

If they have done this, you do not have a good argument that this is a false positive.

If you think other forms of testing are better, I would pay for them, but the same procedures apply.

Is this what you are asking?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
SORRY FOR THE DELAY IN RESPONCE.. MULTI-TASKIING ISNT MY SPECIALTY.. THIS IS SOMEWAT MORE HELPFUL BUT I GUESS WAT IM GETTIN' AT IS, I READ THERE ARE 1,200 TESTING LABS IN THE U.S. THAT CURRENTLY TEST FOR DRUGS, & LESS THAN 100 OF THESE MEET FEDERAL STANDARDS AND MOST OF THE INDIVIDUAL STATES DO NOT REGULATE DRUG TEST LABS AND NUMBERS HAVE RANGED FROM 4% TO OVER 50% IN LEAU TO FALSE POSITIVES.. CAN I FIND OUT IF WHERE I'M AT, IF THEY SEND IT TO A LAB AS DESCRIBED BY ONE OF THESE PLACES THAT I READ OF?? AND IF SO HOW DO I GO ABOUT IT..?? THANX AGAIN FOR UR TIME.. SINCERELY, VERY CONCERNED INDIVIDUAL..
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 2 years ago.
False positives are addressed by GC/MS
GC/MS is not going to miss.
There is not way to get false positives.

Yes there can be false positives in the regular testing, but not when sent for confirmatory.
Ask them if they are doing this.
If they are, and it is DOT compliant lab...then it is correct.

If not, I don't see that they have an argument

Let me know if you have further questions.
