When stars fail drug tests, they attract a lot of attention and in most cases, their reputation seems to go down. The same is true of the average person too – nobody looks forward to failing a drug test.
Well, with the rise of prescription drug use and abuse, more and more people are facing a drug test failure. Someone taking prescription Adderall can take a standard urine test and find out they’re positive!
When taking Adderall, you will come up positive for amphetamines in a test. Informally known as speed, it was a popular drug especially in the 60s and 70s. Testing for amphetamines in a urine drug screen is extremely common, and even considered standard.
Adderall can be detected in your urine for about 2-4 days after use, perhaps longer depending on how much you take. The Adderall Drug Test we carry has a standard cutoff level of 1,000 ng/mL, which is what is suggested by SAMHSA (the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration). As early as 5-10 minutes after use, Adderall will show up positive on a saliva drug test – it stays in your saliva for up to 72 hours.
So a drug test for Adderall is not something that should surprise you as you apply to jobs and so forth. Be aware of this and be sure you have your prescription handy.
