Thread: Negative test results for Adderall

  1. Default Negative test results for Adderall

    I had a prescription for 20mg Adderall XR and had to go to the doctors for a refill. During my appointment they had to perform a urine drug test to show that I take my medicine. The test results came back negative even though I took my meds the morning before; I don't take them everyday because I don't want to build up a tolerance as quickly. Since I tested negative my doctor will not prescribe the Adderall anymore. I also take 20mg Propranolol (Beta blocker) 2 times each day, 20 mg Paroxetine (Paxil) each day, 5,000 mcg D3 each day, and B12 injections 2 times per week (I am deficient in both vitamins). I asked if my other mdications could have interfered with the test and was told no that there is no reason for me to test negative. I don't know what to do now, but I need my medicine. Any advice from someone else that has experienced this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Was it a cheap 20$ test where u pee in a cup? If so demand the urine be sent to a real lab and have it tested, or go get a blood draw / hair test that should clear it up, unless you havent had any adderall in a few days and body is clear of it then dunno find a new doc time.

    From your post it must have been an instant test, those are garbage I woulda took a shit in it and told him its just as accurate as not taking a test, re test and have em submit results to a real lab.

  3. I took the Adderall Monday morning at 8:30 and went to the doctors on Tuesday at 2. They did the instant result urine in a cup test and after it tested negative they said they were sending it off to get tested elsewhere and it also came back negative. I haven't seen the results so I don't know if the second test measured for a quantity of the amphetimine metabolites or if it too was a simple positive or negative test. I can tell you on the days that I do take Adderall and the following day, I have to urinate very frequently (more than double what I typically would)and my urine looks very clear almost like water. I don't know if that means anything or not?

    I have had negative results for benzos even though I take 5-10mg of valium every day or almost every day. Maybe like mentioned, a blood test would be more accurate. There has to be some sort of level reached before certain meds will show up in a urine test. If you arent taking it daily maybe it wouldnt show, but I cant understand why they wouldnt represcribed because of a negative result, at least it shows you are not abusing it or do they suspect you of selling it? Just curious, you dont have to answer.

    @Frustrated2012

    First, I do not take Adderall, however I am on stims. It takes (and of course your mileage varies) approx. 48-72 hrs for d-amph to either clear your system (except for hair testing) or the total amt. remaining is well below the testing threshold. But what other posters have stated re the off the shelf piss test is correct - get the info WRT the mfr. of the piss-strips your doc used. Request copies of the results from both lab tests - you have a right to copies of such things.


    Note: If you get this BS cleared up and you know you are being monitored, it might be a good idea to invest in some home urine test sticks. Probably would be best to research/obtain from net sources and not those sold by Walgreen's, CVS, etc.

    Unfortunately, by being the "good" patient by trying avoid tolerance, you're now in a damned if you do...scenario. Does your doc know that you do not take them every day? Because if the Rx is written for daily use, then that is how you are supposed to take them. Otherwise, they will reduce the # of tablets per month. Remember, they're always on the look out for "diversion".


    Best of luck

  6. Also, are you not entitled to a re test? Seems to me like they could have waited a few hours and re tested in case of invalidity. Maybe that is just when one needs a clean screen as in employment screens. I would still see if you have any post testing remedy.

    Frustrated2012, you say that you don't take them everyday. How often are you taking them and how much is the prescription for?? The problem today is when they test you and it's negative, they automatically assume you are selling the pills on the street!! Keep that in mind!!

  8. This is interesting, it's the first time I've ever heard of this sort of thing with adder all. Is this becoming common? When my doc was rxing me adderall he knew I was taking it intermittently and increasing/decreasing the dose as needed for different days. Is this something I'll have to be looking at as an issue in the future? I'm on provigil now but was going to try and get both because I have different needs at different times and don't always want the 12 hr effects of a long acting med.

    I've had this problem before and had to change doctors couple weeks later. I too didn't take it everyday because I didn't want to build a tolerence. so i took twice the normal dose day before and the regular dose the day of and passed the test.

  10. I am going to try and get the results of the urine tests today and make an appointment with the doctor to see if they can/ will do a hair follicle test. My only concern now is if the metabolites didn't show in my urine, will they still show in my hair? I am also going to see if he is willing to figure out why it doesn't show up in my urine, since he is my doctor I feel like he should be willing to help me find out what happened so it won't be an issue in the future. I have read on several different websites that it could have something to do with an enzyme.

  11. I was prescribed 60mg of adderall a day. I tested negative for amphetamines the same day as I took all three of my 20mg pills.

    I believe a hair test will show even slight usage of a substance for up to six months. Even a blood test can detect usage over a longer period of time, not 6 months but at least what youve taken in the past week. They may make you pay for additional testing but it may show your innocence if you dont dispute that. Good luck, let us know the outcome.

    Default Adderall

    Whenever you get a class 2 med anymore it is the law that you submit to radom urine test.I am hAVING A HARD TIME BELEIVEING that you took an Adderall that morning and it did not show up.When you get these class 2 narcotics nowdays you are supposed to take them everyday or the doc thinks your stokpiling them and selling the extras.That is the way the class 2 era is heading.And you are just a number to them if you don't comply you are violating your contract and they say BYE BYE! Sorry way they treat us any more as patients but if you get a class 2 anymore in their eyes you are a drug abuser to them automatically.Take your meds everyday and youll have no problems such as this.

    That is news to me.
    Where did you hear about this new "law"?
    And the tests have to be radom?

  15. THis is all news to me. I am prescribed adderall and my doc has never asked me to test. Although I will admit I don't like the addicted feeling and I will not take them every day. I can see why a doctor would be concerned about this....extra pills not taken means they could be going somewhere else. IMO I've seen adderall clear out of my system in less than two days for a drug test. Seems to have a short lifespan in the system...at least for me?

    I say go to a new doc. There are so many out there giving that stuff out like candy. I took a half of 1 of the add meds my son takes (forgot which drug, a stim, not adderall) and I could barely handle it. Cant believe how much they are prescribed, butin your case new doc, b/c you are in a damned if you do damned if you dont situation. If you fight it it looks like your a junkie to some dr.'s and if you do nothing they think you just sell em. Thats messed up.
