    Drug Tests for Meth

    If you drink ice tea that has meth in it will you test positive with a urine test?

    Yes, read urine testing below.

    Followup Question:
    How long does crystal stay detectable after smoking it?

    NIDA urine testing consists of 5 drugs that are approved under the standard drug tests and methamphetamines are one of them. Amphetamines can be detected in your urine for 1 to 3 days after using. Methamphetamines stay in your system for a longer period of time. They can be detected in urine for at least 5 days.

    Followup Question:
    If hair can be tested for it, will it tell a basic time line as to when it was last used?

    Yes, not only is hair testing possible it's extremely accurate. Hair testing is very common and it doesn't matter what type of hair or where it comes from on the body. All that's need is one or two strands of hair as long as the root follicle is attached. The root follicle of the hair shows everything a person has done for the past three months. Hair testing is so exact there's nothing a person can do to avoid the results. Standard hair tests automatically test for methamphetamines.

    Followup Question:
    Is it possible to test positive for amphetamine when I was on my period? I took a urine test and it came up positive but I was clean for at least three weeks.

    Yes, when a person used drugs like meth for instance, it gets deposited in their fat cells as well as other tissues in the body. Sometimes deposits of meth can break away from tissues and be in your system again. This would cause the urine test to become positive.
