Does meth show up on drug tests?

Meth drug testing is a technical analysis of biological specimen done to detect the presence of methamphetamine metabolites in the person’s body using the following samples:

  • blood
  • hair follicle
  • oral fluid (saliva)
  • urine

Meth shows up on most urine-based test 2-3 days after use. However, when a person exhibits positive drug test results, it means that a person have recently used methamphetamine or some other drugs. More here on the detection window and methods for testing for meth, as well as how long meth lasts, with a section at the end for your questions.

Why order a drug test for meth?

Drug testing has different goals in different contexts. For example, parole and probation officers use drug testing to monitor compliance with the conditions of parole and probation; employers use them to make hiring decisions; and alcohol and drug abuse treatment programs use tests to assess whether a person is complying with the treatment plan, or not. In fact, testing is often the first step in helping a meth addict get help.

Anyone can perform a quick, inexpensive test for meth residue to help in making personal decisions. However, keep in mind that home based tests that are not positive are still considered inconclusive. The same is true for professional testing. This means that the testing found no meth, but that is no guarantee that there is no meth present.

Meth detection: What is it?

A detection period is the time-frame during which any drug can be detected in a biological sample. Generally, a detection period depends on the drug class, amount and frequency of use, age, and overall health. For methamphetamine, the drug detection windows are

  • blood and oral fluid = detection period is within 12 hours of use
  • urine drug test = detection period is 3 to 5 days
  • hair follicle test = detection period is up to 90 days

Types of meth drug tests and screens

A variety of specimens can be assayed for drugs, including urine, blood, sweat, saliva, and hair, among others. Each specimen is unique, and each offers different patterns of information about drug use over time illustrates the general relationship between drug effects and the detection periods. Further, each specimen has strengths and weaknesses about the level of information that can be gained about drug use. The most common types of drug screens for methamphetamine include:

  1. Blood tests for meth – This type of testing can link drug concentrations to behavioral impairment but is usually limited to recent consumption and does not provide an accurate picture for past drug use.
  2. Hair tests for meth – This type of testing can show evidence of past, historical use. However, its detection window is limited to the amount of hair collected; hair only grows at a rate of about one-half inch per month, so an average specimen can only show 90 days of past meth use.
  3. Saliva testing for meth – Saliva drug tests is very useful for home use especially when parents suspect their kids to have abused meth. Saliva tests are accurate, easy to use, private and take only 5 minutes. Detection times for drugs in oral fluids are roughly similar to that in blood, approximately 1-24 hours. Oral fluids normally contain traces of meth itself rather than its metabolites (which are present in urine.) Collection of oral fluid is generally considered less invasive than either blood or urine and might be able to connect recent drug use with behavioral impairment.
  4. Urine testing for meth – The drug testing methodology for urinalysis is well established.   Meth and it metabolites are detectable in urine for several days after the drug has been used. While this detection window can overlap with intoxication, impairment, and being “under the influence,” it cannot usually be used to prove intoxication in a legal sense.

When considering administration of a meth drug test, choose the option that is right for your situation. If you test, test carefully and as thoroughly as possible. If you hire a professional, be sure they have the proper credentials and experience. You can also test yourself, or your children for meth that has been ingested from contact with contaminated surfaces.

Meth cutoff levels

  1. Hair meth cut off level – The drug cut-off level for methamphetamine using the hair follicle test is 300 ng/ml.
  2. Saliva meth cutoff level – The drug testing cut-off level for meth using saliva test is 50 ng/ml.
  3. Urine meth cutoff level – The cut-off level for the urine initial test is 500 ng/ml while confirmatory test, which is done through gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, is 250 ng/ml.

Positive drug testing for meth

Most drug testing for meth is urine based. Positive results in a urinalysis drug test generally indicate use within 1-4 days but could be up to a week following heavy chronic use. Rate of excretion into the urine is heavily influenced by urinary pH. Between 30-54% of an oral dose is excreted in urine as unchanged methamphetamine and 10-23% as unchanged amphetamine. Following an intravenous dose, 45% is excreted as unchanged parent drug and 7% amphetamine.

Hi Alicia. How many days after you last used were you tested? If it was a day or two, there is a great chance the test will come up positive, but if more days passed, you might have a chance.

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Hi George. How many days passed since you last used before you got tested? It can be detected in blood for about 12 hours after use, and in urine it says detectable 3-5 days.

Hi Mary. I hope you don't. But you could be exposed. If you suspect that your neighbour is operating a methamphetamine laboratory, report your concerns to the local police department, to sheriff's office or to your State's Attorney General immediately.

Does methamphetamine show up as meth or amphetamine on U.A's
Saturday, February 28th, 2015

If i snorted a really really small line of meth first time trying and tested 1 hour after ingesting. Would it show on a test i heard it takes 3-5 hours after ingesting to start leaving the body meaning if I’m athletic and peed 45 mins later would my body have had enough time to produce any?
Ivana @ Addiction Blog
Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Hi Terell. Sorry, it is possible to test positive. The meth you snorted had enough time to be metabolized during that one hour. Did it? Depends on many factors, and you may even slide by clean from this one.
Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

if i snorted less than twenty dollars worth of meth then took urine test 3 or 4 days later, is it possible to pass? I passed drug screen the previous week, so system was clean before i messed up. Any hope for me?? Any sugestions to help me pass, would drinking tons of water help??

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

If someone smoked meth & 45minutes to an hour later gave a urine test will it come up positive? I was told it takes 3 hours for it to go through the body.

HI everyone. I have read this blog and your replies. My cousin use to smoke marijuana and his parents use to make him drug test. He have found a homemade drugs test name Doctortest and he use it to know if in the medical test will have a positive result. Now I use it also in my night's out to know if I'm safe with my drink or if someone had put some drugs on it. I recommend it in either cases.

Need advice from experienced people!! Situation: 23 yr old daughter, bipolar since early childhood, on disability due to permanent Rheumatoid Arthritis from side effects of psych drugs as well as serious rapid cycling BP. Also, now has SEVERE Central Pain syndrome which requires ER treatment ( IV deluded, Zofran and IV fluids due to severe vomiting from pain) during episodes of extreme pain . She smoked pot for RA for years for unremitting pain. After Central Pain Dx, she stopped pot, which wasn't causing CPS but was triggering new episodes resulting in hospitalizations. Recently, we believe she got involved with a guy who is a bad influence . We no longer live in state and since December, after not being able to have any meaningful contact, we came to believe she was psychotic from the severe stress of temporary homelessness as well as police issues around EX boyfriend. She has lost her job, and is now being evicted in 28 days. We flew in to assess her. She was EXTREMELY erratic, lost at least 35 lbs ( she loses weight from attacks of CPS /vomiting ) which , in itself was concerning, but the erratic incoherent behavior, coupled with my discovery of a glass bell jar in her drawer ( new boyfriend has been living in her apt so we are not sure if it is hers or not) with 2 bags of light brown crystalline powder, has set off alarm bells.. she never came back to apt until 5 hours later, claiming she had a lot of errands to do in addition to "helping the boyfriends very sick grandmother who nobody else will help ..." and then getting VERY aggressive and abusive verbally talking NON STOP for 3 hours about how abusive I am, how controlling, how she's going to find a place to live and a new job in 3 weeks before she's evicted..etc etc...... refusing to eat after we bought organic healthy food due to our EXTREME concern about her serious physical condition... she also had a HORRIBLE cut in her bottom lip, she claimed she was "picking" along with what looked like small circular scars almost like healed acne scars.. she has never had bad acne or skin problems before... I am seeing her primary dr this week while we are in town, and going to ask him to do a urinalysis and blood work on her ( under some premise) to check for these types of meth drugs, and we are looking for a lawyer to try and hire in case we need to commit her in a psych ward or a detox center depending on what we hopefully find out.... we are not sure whether she is simply psychotic ( needing psych help) or is psychotic from meth use... its hard to differentiate..... but something SERIOUS happened in December after he involvement with this new guy...... we are VERY concerned about police at this point. She has no police record and we are concerned about getting them involved at ALL due to obvious issues with criminalization of drug addicts in the USA. We cannot reason with her. We cannot get her to voluntarily go to drug or psych unit. We want to keep her trust when she becomes homeless and we have to fly back out her to save her. We offered to let her come to our state and live in a condo we will buy her so she doesn't have to worry about struggling to make rent since the condo will be less than 500 a month ( including most utilities) She refuses to move out of state but we cannot afford CA prices.... HELP!!! Any options would be appreciated to try and save her life. She is also suicidal due to severe RA and pain issues........ it seems impossible to do the right thing due to psych issues/ severe auto immune diseases ( CPS is the one that is life threatening) and now, what appears to be a meth addiction. Anyone know what this brown powder is? Also: Is there a test someone can link me to that can test this substance without using urine or hair??? Thankyou!!!!

Sunday, July 5th, 2015

I'm reading my boyfriend's autopsy report. The toxicology says Amphetamine 217 ng/ml & Methamphetamine 1829 ng/ml. Can anyone translate that to me? How much meth would have been used to get those readings & how soon before his death? There are questions surrounding the circumstances of his death. Is that a high amount that someone could have injected after he died to cover up other causes of death? He had been clean for over 2 months & everyone that saw him the day he died swears he was not high...even a few hours before death. Autopsy report explains altercation with son & son's mother so some of us have questions about this toxicology result. thanks for the info

Cory... 6 days clean and you only took a saliva test... Then you have nothing to worry about bud

I think my daughter is on meth. She has lost a lot of weight and her face is full of sores. Does her weight have any affect on a test for meth? I was told that test would not show because of her weight. I was told that meth sticks to fat and she has none. What is the best test for her?

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

Hello Valerie. Lab-based testing is the highest quality and gives the best insight and will show meth present when 0.02µg of meth is collected in a sample, so I recommend you order a lab test and not a home meth test.

Hi Jane Doe. An average specimen of hair can show 90 days of past meth use.
Monday, November 16th, 2015

Hello, I was just wondering, I had a hair follicle test on the 28th of October and I will be having another done 30 days from then. My concern is that I've done meth a couple times since then :(. My meth measurement/quantitation from the first test was 11181 pg/mg? The expectations of the next test are supposed to be decreased measurements. I tested positive for A LOT, because I was a heavy user, but meth is the only drug I've done since my hair sample was collected. I always use IV which I know is worse because it enters my blood stream at once allowing the metabolites that pass into my hair pretty potent (or however the test is read). If you would please let me know, good or bad, what I might can expect on this next test. And/or if you can help me out at all. Thanks for your time!
Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Will one very small line show up on a hair follicle test 2 months after use...yes or no please. Either it's enough to show, or it isn't! No one can give me a straight answer. It is not first time use, but rather every 3 and half months, it is one small line.
Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

Hello Erin. If you want your son back home, you should be more strong, and try not to relapse. However, experts claim that an average specimen can show 90 days of past meth use.

Please reply back...ways I may still be able to pass ..I am facing a my probation to being revoked and possible state jail if I fail the test

Of course Meth shows up in urine toxicology!. Want a list of drugs that shows up on our Toxicology? You'll be looking at Benzodiazepines, Opiods (Synthetic and Natural), Barbiturates, Illicits, Tricyclic Antidepressants, Anti-Convulsants, Meth, and numerous others. Labs are very good now and can be as custom as desired. Urine Toxicology is ridiculously hard to "trick".

Hi, Deanna. I suggest you consult your lawyer to get court-ordered drug testing. Also, you may contact child services, and introduce your case. Here's suggested reading on the topic: Good luck!

my friend is going througha CHIPS case (child in need of protected services) in the state of Minnesota. She is an addict and an ex daily meth user ( smoker). she has gone through an extensive treatment program and had made a tremendous change in her life and my hat is off to her. To prove her self to COS (child protective services) she has willingly agreed to wear drug patches. well one of these patches came back positive for meth with a score in the high 50s. so to prove her sobriety she went and had a hair folical test done. she passed the hair test and brought the evidence before the court. CPS took the patch results over the hair results saying that one time use of meth would not show up in hair. it seems to me that COS makes their own rules up as they go along. I guess my quetion is what test is more accurate , the hair or the patch? does one time use show up in hair? who can she talk to with more knowledge than yellow medicine county CPS , minnesota? please send back responses and your knowledge! her family would also appreciate prayers. sincerely, a concerned friend

I have been drug testing at my local drug testing for our county. The place we drug test is very unreliable and I am exhausted with all of these people. I look like a fool and don't know what to do. The drug testing is a non profit organization ran by "volunteers" in our county. The DHR for our county is set up for failure and there are many reviews online 28th complaints of how bad our local DHR is. My case worker is on Probation and in serious trouble. To what extent I do not know. They refuse to show me any of my drug tests and would not release them at court to my lawyer. My lawyer is a "court appointed lawyer" she seemed to be upset that DHR said those were their records and would not release them because they pay for them. We did not have to see the judge the day of court because you would just meet with your lawyer and case worker and if you agreed to what the court advised of you then you sign and they take it to the judge and she would sign off on it. My caseworker told me and my lawyer that she would get a print off of my drug test the next day at our ISP meeting for DHR. I went to my ISP meeting and asked to see a print our of my drug tests and they still never showed me they only stated that I was failing them for meth. I did meth when I was going through my divorce in the beginning and not with my children even home. it was 1 time with a friend and DHR came that day. I realize I made a huge mistake and I am paying for it tremendously. When I went to take my test the next day of course I failed that test so I have been going through this for about 4 months now. 2 of those months I would call dhr to speak with my case worker everyday and leave her a message to call me back because I wanted to know my results and what was going on with my case and what I needed to do but she NEVER once called me back and when we went to court is when she told me I failed my tests for meth. I am very highly upset because I do not know what to do anymore I am backed in a corner and I know I failed the first one for meth because I did smoke it but that was it. I don't see how in this world I would be failing any since the first test. Those should have all been passed. None of this seems fair, professional or right. My ex husbands mom and sister were the ones who called dhr on me out of spite for me getting a divorce after 8 years and moving me and my kids to another place which is very nice and even dhr said my kids were happy and healthy dressed nice and smart. I have raised them by myself for 6 years without any help from anyone other than their dad when he wasn't working but he worked day and night bless his heart. His mother and sister even tried getting me kicked out of our new place so that it would make things harder on me. They called dhr and said I neglected my kids but they found out immediantly that was not true. Its required to take a drug test when they come to check things out and that's how it all got startef. I know that smoking that one time was a very horrible mistake and I am not blaming anyone for what I have done. Someone please help me and give me your best advise because I feel like none of this is right. Something is Definately wrong here and I am over it and need to know what I can do. I am not letting them keep telling me I can't see my own drug test when they are telling me I have failed and failed and failed. I refuse to go through this ridiculous bullcrap with these idiots any longer. I was trying to talk to the supervisor over my caseworker last time we met and I made him mad because he was standing there with no paperwork in his hands telling me that I failed my drug test so I asked if I could see all of these drug test and he wouldn't directly answer me and kept trying to end the conversation so I would leave. He was rolling his eyes and being very unprofessional. When he for up to leave because the meeting was then "over" my lawyer jumped up and for right close to my face and said "This is already hard enough on you but pissing DHR off is not helping your case one bit so don't continue to make them mad." Ummm... Excuse me? These are my children that I love and I am not going to be accused of something I know I have not done and if I have failed please produce the paperwork proving that is true.... I need help guys. Any information is greatly appreciated.

I did 2 very small lines of meth about 3 weeks ago got to have a hair test for a job will it show? Thanks
Sunday, February 14th, 2016

I have read that methamphetamines break down to amphetamines in the body. To me , that would be suggesting that when the metabolite passes through your body in your urine, that there would be no possible way for the drug test to actually be able to calle it Methamphetamine, but instead it shows up as Amphetamines. Sorda like in the sense of testing for Valium or Xanax, the results would be for a Positive on Benzodiazopinees instead of being able to detect exactly which Benzo a person took, a clonazapam, valium, Xanax etc.. Only Benzos show up as A Benzo. So then, in the Amphetamines case, it all should only show up as stimulants or Amphetamines broken down in the bodys system from Being ingested as Methamphetimines to only Amphetamine... in the body means to me that , before it leaves the body through Urine it has changed already. So therefor it seems there is no real test for distinuishing Methamphetamines from JUST Amphetamines. Would this be true and correct in saying so? When it comes right down to it, whether the test says methamphetamines in one section or amphetamine it's going to show a positive results in the methamphetamine section because of the broken down form of meth into Amphetamine in urine. ( out of body ) = no meth just Amphetamines? Is this correct?

Can meth still show up in a urine test after 42 days if you are a very heavy user?
Monday, March 14th, 2016

A friend we haven't seen in yrs. showed up, ask to "rest" for a couple days. It was obvious that he'd been involved in drugs, lose/rotten teeth, weight loss, talking crazy etc. Long story short, he stayed 10 days then we took him stay at salvation army for the homeless. The 1st thing he had to do to be able to stay there was take a drug test. He was turned away when he failed the test "across the board." He said he'd been using meth and spice, (injection marks were everywhere) for 12 - 14 years. Now my question : How'd he fail the test if he hadn't used drugs for 10 or 11 days? Thank you in advance.

I was recently told u failed a urine test for meth. I have not done any meth! To prove my innocence I paid for a hair follicle test and everything came back negative. I'll admit the false failed test was for federal probation and I had to petition the court to even get a copy of test. The test results say amphetamines pos but meth negative yet at the bottom of paper the examiner wrote in meth 96%. How can this be? I have severe migraine headaches and had taken an imitrex injection 2 days before this test and that had to be the culprit. Would you please allow me to forward my test results to u just to make sure I'm reading this right? I have been seriously wronged here and I need a second opinion. Thank you, jackie

To Jackie I'm not an expert but, it's my opinion that you may want to go seek legal advise, best chance here not sure, without seeing what's is stated on your results" Certificate of Analysis." In some cases it is possible to dispute the say factual evidence, if there has been a testing mistake or the result are inconsistent. Legal Aid are pretty excel good luck

Hi there, My partner is currently going through court for custody of his son. The mother of his child (Morgan) has just taken a hair follicle test to prove to us she is 'no longer smoking meth' We have just recieved Morgans hair test results. It came up positive for meth by 2148pg/mg within the past 3 months. My question is, is that a high amount of meth? Does that indicate she is still a daily user? I've tried to look up online but can't seem to find anything useful. Thanks, Sophie.

Harley they can't with hold your medical files I'm in Australia and we have freedom of information, your whole situation seems strange? Only 1 dirty at the start and then how many others? How far apart were they? It doesn't matter cause of the paperwork, how can a lawyer put together a case? They have to give it to the court no matter what and you should be able to get a copy. Engage another lawyer, your one seems beaten already, if they can't mount a fight to get your own Personal medical papers there's something very wrong, at worst if it hasn't gone to court contact the judge put in a formal request for all recotds and any samples they may have. The whole thing sounds strange from the actual testing to not providing your records. So the person doing iwas suspended? That's no surprise. Seems there could be some relation to your situation? I'd get a new lawyer contact the court and put a formal request for your paper work. Maybe get your hair tested as that can show history of drug taking. 100% should not have failed the others! If this info is to late still do it if they still have your paperwork and didn't provide it that sounds like grounds for a retrial as its ",new information that's important to your case," your side never saw they own your medical information? I'd also check any paper work you signed, it should have been pointed out, that's a huge clause and again to me grounds for a retria they own your history?. Who finances this group look into there funding and where or how your information is used. Bet its sold on. Big corporation hiding behind community groups. Also sounds like lazy workers from the lawyer down . You have rights look into those, state and federal, be a pain I know but with kids involved worth it. Doctors here have to provide you with your info and with holding it is illegal. It's one of the most private things a person has, and its your right to have it. Hope this made sense and its not to late if its you still have options, smash the system expose it as the rubbish it is. To everyone asking if they will fail a drug test error yes you will Im pretty sure the article before the comments says it all in rather plain English urine fail saliva fail hair will take longer but fail and the good old blood test wow big fail. If you know you have a drug test just don't use that week yeah I know its hard 30 years of addiction history so I kind of know a bit and that artical is pretty clear. For heroin give it the full 72 hours you may get lucky at 48 but pushing it fine. I use my bup for 2 days and that works for smack. Maybe flush with orange juice and water for a few days with ice. But most of you have already failed sorry its a bit late. And as a drug snob holding of on smack is much harder then ice but it does last longer (the effects) so if you have a test pull up for a bit yeah. Anyway good luck to everyone I do hope you past your test and Harley good luck hope so of this helps and not to late Wow that was a rave.... Maybe under the influence but its not my scene good luck again

My question is she says she did not use any drugs at all and says it must be cause she was at her mothers house who does use. can being around someone smoking or has smoked in her hose cause you to show that you have meth in your system?

Hi Shelley. No, being around someone who smokes meth will not affect the drug test. Drug test levels are kept intentionally high so that the minimum levels which may be present due to second hand ingestion do not count as positive. It would take a person to be kept in an enclosed space with very thick second hand smoke such that she has levels equivalent to a user, so a test would be positive...but not possible in a practical situation.

Hi Angel. Yes, if you have meth in your blood, the meth will also show up in urinalysis.

So, I was an occasional meth user. (1-2 a year) I hated it, the only reason to do it was sex with the hubby. Today's April 25, 2017. I did once back in April 2016. And then last time was April 5, 2017 I was accepted to a job and asked me to do a drug test. At first I was like okay I'm gonna pass this cos i never use drugs of any kind. At all. Then the guy started talking about hairs and I was like oh sh*t, I didn't see this coming. Is there a possibility that I would fail the hair follicle drug test? Thanks a lot. Hoping for your feedback

When it comes to meth and the sweat patch drug test ... how long does someone need to be clean in order to have the results of the sweat patch (worn for 14 days) to stay clean? I'm not finding many studies with the answer to this question.

Can touching the outside of an old used pipe to throw it away fail a urinalysis? It wouldn't seem possible, but I have a urinary tomorrow and I wanted to ask.

How much urine does it take for the lab to detect methamphetamine? I barely squeezed two drops on the cup before they sealed it and sent it off. Was it enough to read anything?

Hi Lee. Usually, the lab requires 30 to 45 mL depending on the test.

I took a drug test, and was found positive for meth. I have never used meth, or even have seen it for that matter. What is wrong here?

If a person gets a hair test and was using meth heavily say level was at 2100 and they quit for two or three weeks than used again for three or four days will the levels be higher because of further use or lower because they had stopped for that three weeks?

I live right next door, like a wall way from those I suspect are dealing and possibly cooking meth. There are so many symptoms. High traffic all hours of the day/night. Noise associated with, when I hear certain noise, yup, here comes a customer. Like clockwork. My dogs both small, a Pomeranian and a Chihuahua Mix are exhibiting a hacking, dry cough, they didn't have before moving to the small place. 400 sq ft studio. I wake up with a chemical taste in my mouth. I have eye irritation. Headaches, I never had before. Would a toxicology test show any signs being so close to such a scenario?

Hi Lucy. The process of “cooking” meth causes pollution of the environment. So it comes as no surprise that you and your dogs could feel the intense smell of the chemicals in the air. The contamination of a meth lab in the neighborhood spreads literary everywhere, starting from your walls, furniture, curtains, ending to your carpet. Some of the symptoms of toxic exposure to methamphetamine include headaches, nausea, fatigue, lethargy and dizziness. Long term meth exposure can result in difficulty breathing, chest pain, frequent coughs, skin, eyes, nose and mouth irritations. So if you are living near a meth lab, a toxicology test would definitely come out positive. In order to protect yourself and the other neighbors you can contact Meth Tip Line at 1-800-453-4756.
