Unfortunately, there is no effective method to clear drugs out of your system faster than it would normally be cleared. Different people will metabolize drugs at different rates, and many people will clear the meth within three days. Drinking plenty of fluids will help flush the system, but the effect that this has on the length of time that the test will remain positive is trivial, and excessive dilution of the urine may act as a red flag in the urine test.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
