Can taking Adderall show up on a drug test?
Q: Can a person who is taking Adderall test positive for amphetamines and test false positive for methamphetamines in a urine drug test?

A: Yes. Adderall is nothing more than a mixture of d/l-amphetamine. It will show up as amphetamine on a drug test. It may show up as methamphetamine if thats all they are testing for in the drug test. If you have a prescription for Adderall, then this positive can be excused and it should not impact whoever is testing you (though it's generally best to notify them before hand that you have a prescription). Amphetamines are testable in urine for up to 4 or 5 days after heavy use though somewhat less after single use.
