Concerned about UA test
Date: 8/20/2013
I failed a ua test for thc but dont smoke i take mens one a day vitamins which have riboflavin b2 . If needed i can list all ingredients . Also take mini thins and beast creature creatine blend. They sent it to a lab but im still concerned

AskDocWeb: If the lab does a confirmation test it should eliminate any false positives that are known to show up on the initial urine test.

God bless you! I was going nuts trying to figure out how I tested pos for morphine having not used it since a surgery more than a year ago! These cheap ass urine tests are destroying people’s careers!


Doing my own test
Date: 9/9/2013
Thank you for the info. I too have been falsely accused of barbiturate use. Honestly, I thought that went out in the 60’s or 70’s and would not know where to begin to get any! I do take persc. drugs, but all legally and as directed. Now I have lost all credibility with my doctor(s) and others. Have had another test done out of county at my own expense and am awaiting results. Original test was done unsupervised and never saw the sample after I gave it. My new sample was observed, I and the nurse both signed forms stating that I witnessed the sealing of the sample, and the package it was sent in. None of this happened on the original, so maybe I have them. We’ll see.


Figured it out
Date: 9/23/2013
Hello anyone and everyone, especially those whom false positives for amphetamines may concern. I am currently on supervised probation. 2 weeks ago, my probation officer requested that I submit a urine screen. 1 week and 3 days following the submitted urinalysis, my probation officer notified me that the results tested positive for amphetamines. However, it has been a few several years since I had used let alone abused any amphetamines.

I have been taking Wellbutrin XL (Bupropion) for approximately 10 months now and had been using 10 hour energy shots called “Dynapep” on a daily basis for nearly 1 week up until 1 day prior to the drug screen. Due to my utmost concern for a possible probation violation, I was compelled to do research. My findings, thanks to Father and Mother God, in a brief summary, are that Wellbutrin XL, or Bupropion, is classified as a substituted amphetamine in addition to the fact that – according to research, numerous tests and studies – it has and CAN cause a false positive for amphetamines.

Aside from this, and in regards to the 10 hour energy shot known as “Dynapep” I had used for the approximate 1 week time frame up until 1 day prior to my drug screen, contains a chemical compound/ingredient known as – among several other names – “2-Amino-4-Methylhexane Hydrochloride”, a substance banned by the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) in all dietary/performance enhancing supplements and outlawed in Canada, as well as prohibited in New Zealand concerning bulk powder sales of the substance.

Thanks to God Almighty, I have discovered the source of my false positive and hopefully if God is willing, my probation officer will believe me when I tell her this Wednesday, September 25th or perhaps sooner, that I did not use amphetamines. I hope this helps much, any prayers in regards to my current situation would be much appreciated. My prayers would be gladly lifted up to God Almighty on anyone else’s behalf if requested of me, just send me an e-mail at (email addresses are not published for safety reasons). God bless you all so much!

Saliva drug test
Date: 12/7/2013
My wife tested positive for Morphine on a saliva drug test she swears she did not take it, and I know she is allergic to it. I know she did take Norco and Suboxone, is there any combo of drug that could show up for Morphine. Thank you.


AskDocWeb: Yes, there are about 50 possible causes for a false positive for Morphine. This is why we recommend getting additional testing by more accurate means.

Ephedrine or Ephedera(Ma Huang Extract
Date: 12/10/2013
I want to use Yellow Haze which is a diet/fat burner containing either Ephedrine or Ephedera(Ma Huang Extract). However I drive a forklift for work and ANY, even very small accident constitutes that I be drug tested with a 9-Panel Urine drug test. Even if the Ephedrine/Ephedra causes a false positive, will I pass the drug test after the GS test is completed? If not, I would be terminated from my job. You’re professional help is greatly appreciated! Thank you,

Peace of mind
Date: 12/11/2013
This is soo helpful. If nothing else it gives me peace of mind. I am printing all reputable articles regarding this because I just tested positive for amphetamines and ecstasy for heaven sake. I am 50 years old with multiple chronic conditions and my last thoughts are of getting high on illegal drugs. Thank goodness marijuana is legal here.
