Ok thanks for posting the documents causing concerns.
Zantac or ranitidine related false positive test for amphetamine is not commonly encountered. In fact this is rare incidence.
And any false positive reading will be discarded by a confirmatory testing for the amphetamines.
Hence, you do not need to worry about the zantac use.

Best wishes

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.
