Amphetamine (Adderall) Urine Drug Test
Amphetamine (Adderall) Drug Test
This drug test is used to look for recent Amphetamine use in a urine sample. If the results of the initial screening warrant, confirmatory testing will be performed at no additional cost. Positive confirmatory results will provide a numerical value for the level detected. Amphetamines are a class of drugs that act as nervous system stimulants, essentially speeding up communication between the brain and the body. Methamphetamine is a potent and highly addictive form of Amphetamine. Although it is used medically in rare cases, it is more often produced illegally and abused for the high it produces. A positive result for this test will differentiate between Amphetamines and Methamphetamine.
Amphetamines are often prescribed to treat conditions such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Narcolepsy. Abusing prescription Amphetamines such as Adderall by taking more than the prescribed dosage or using it without a prescription can lead to addiction and a number of health issues. Short term effects of Adderall use can include loss of appetite, irregular weight loss, irritability, difficulty sleeping, restlessness, and irregular heartbeat. Long term abuse can cause headaches, depression, paranoia, inability to focus or concentrate, increased blood pressure, difficulty breathing, hallucinations, and convulsions. It is important to note that while a person abusing Adderall will typically test positive for amphetamines, the test results will not specifically list Adderall or any other brand name medication. Because drug testing cannot distinguish between Adderall and Amphetamines, a positive result will only differentiate between Amphetamine and Methamphetamine.
Amphetamines are typically detectable in urine for 1-3 days after use but may be detectable longer in cases of chronic use. Detection periods are only an estimate an can be affected by a number of factors.
For a more sensitive amphetamine test with a lower cutoff level, please see our Amphetamine Confirmation Urine Drug Test. For a test which includes Amphetamines as well as other drugs, please see our 5 Panel Urine Drug Test and other options in our Drug Testing Category.
Turnaround for this test is typically 1-3 business days but may take longer if confirmatory testing is necessary.
