Thank you for your question.

Phentermine will not show up either positive for opiates or for methamphetamine particularly in a laboratory with GC/MS confirmation.

This session is open for any further questions that you may have. I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the rating options (stars) at the top right-hand-corner as that is the only way I am credited on here by the website for helping you out.
