Hello,

Myself Dr Josh- and I’m happy to help with your question today.

Well, Phentermine is a stimulant , which is similar to an amphetamine.

This is basically a appetite suppressant.

Phentermine can cause false positive for amphetamine Or Ecstasy (MDMA).

Phentermine and Amphetamines are somewhat alike. Therefore, it is highly probable that during a drug testing, the Phentermine will give a false positive result on Amphetamines.

The result can be a false positive if you take Phentermine.

This can show as an amphetamine during drug screen test.

Hope this helped

If you have any further question then you can ask me.

Please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today
we only get after positive feedback.
Bonus is highly appreciated.
We are here to help you until you satisfy.
Thank you.

Kind Regards

Dr.Josh

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.
