Hello from JustAnswer.

Yes, the test will typically detect meth use 24 hours after use. Meth can be detected for up to 3 days after use. In fact, virtually all drugs that are included in the testing panel will be detected at 24 hours.

The various first check products will test for different drugs, so it is important to use the test for the drugs of concern.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
