    Default Drug Test

    So.....I just have a question. I just started using Phentermine almost two weeks ago. I'm doing really well on it, and I don't want to stop using it. I'm in the military, and I was informed that they are giving a drug test next week. It got me thinking about some of the reading I did on Phentermine and how it is similar chemically to Amphetamines. Has anyone experienced a failed drug test due to Phentermine? Does anyone know how long Phentermine stays in your system after you stop using it? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    I would take any meds with you to the test that you are on. I have taken tests before (not on phen at the time) and my husband has taken them and if you tell them up front what meds you are taking, they have a way to filter out for a false positive due to the drugs.

    I agree - I would take your med in a prescription bottle with you so they know that it is not an illegal substance but one that was prescribed for YOU by YOUR doctor. There should not I would think be any problems as long as you show them this ahead of time. Let us know, that is a good question.

    Some drug stores sell home drug test kits, similar to a pregnancy test.

    I'm a nursing student, and we were informed at the beginning that there would be random drug tests. When I got the script, I asked my Dr how taking the Phen would affect that. She told me that it may show up in a basic drug test, but to take my prescription bottle that clearly shows my name and the name of the med if I ever had to take a test. She said if they know up front, it will avoid any problems later. She also said that they can do a more specific test and see that it is Phen and not amphetamines.

    Yes Phentermine will flag a positive/cross react result in the Amp family on Immunoassay (FPIA) but it will not show up as amp or meth/amp when confirming with other machines i.e. GC/MS thats why labs do a second and third confirmation method.... another way to eliminate the Idea that Phentermine is amp/meth/amp is to use an easy to use I-Screen 5 panel... These are not to be use as a confirmation but can be a great tool to help you decide if the person is really on Phentermine or they are stating it due to other drug usage... In addition Didrex (misspelled) which is a diet pill, will confirm as a Meth/Amp...

    Below is a copy of one employers policy.

    "If your not able to show a valid prescription it will be considered you taking and illegal substance... If you can offer the proof of the prescription then most labs report it out positive consistent with medication.. Most pre-employment testing uses a 5 panel which checks for Amp/Meth, Thc, Coc, Opiates, PCP so in the end a Phentermine positive would not fall in any of these families ..... Best advice is to not take others medicine. If your not prescribed it they consider it an illegal substance".

    I have seen while working a patent's drug test come back positive for ope ants. Here all this person did was eat a poppy seed bagel prior to testing. I have also seen false positive and false negatives. I would be honest and see what the military's policy on taking this kind of drug is.
