Meth can stay in the system and be detected in urinalysis drug tests 1-4 days after use. But chronic use can extended this detection period. More here on how meth works and the length of time it stays in your system, with a section for your questions about meth at the end.

What is meth?

Meth (short for “methamphetamine”) is a highly addictive stimulant that affects the central nervous system. While small doses of meth can be prescribed legally for limited medical uses, most recreational doses of meth are manufactured illegally.

How do you take meth?

Meth comes in different forms and can be taken in multiple ways. If prescribed, methamphetamine comes as a pill. In its powder form, meth can be ingested, snorted, or injected. In its “crystal” or rock form, meth can be smoked.

Main meth uses

Under the Controlled Substances Act, meth is classified as a Schedule II drug, which allows for very limited medical use. Medical professionals may issue a non-refillable prescription of methamphetamine as treatment for narcolepsy, attention deficit and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, and obesity.

Recreationally, meth is used as a stimulant. Soon after smoking or injecting meth, the drug produces a short and intense rush. If ingested or snorted, meth can produce a longer high lasting about half a day. When used recreationally, meth creates a feeling of euphoria. However, in the U.S., it is illegal to possess meth without a prescription.

Peak levels and half-life of meth

Blood concentrations of meth vary depending on the amount taken. Since meth can be prescribed by medical professionals, there is a therapeutic level of blood concentration, which usually ranges from .02-.05 mg/L. Recreational meth use, on the other hand, can range from anywhere between .01-2.5mg/L. Concentrations above .2mg/L are associated with abuse, and the threshold for toxicity for meth is above 2.5mg/L.

Meth reaches peak levels in blood concentration differently depending on mode of administration. The half-life of meth can range greatly, but for all methods of administration the half-life ranges between about 10 and 12 hours. When ingesting meth, peak concentration of methamphetamine occurs in approximately three hours. For smoking and snorting, peak concentration takes between two and three hours.

Meth drug testing: How long does meth stay in the body?

Different drugs and their metabolites are stay detectable through drug testing for different amounts of time. Meth stays in the body much longer than some other drugs.

For example, 50% of cocaine leaves the body after only one hour. With a half-life of nearly twelve hours, meth stays in the system for a significantly longer period of time. The exact amount of time methamphetamine can stay in the body depends on a number of factors, such as urine pH levels, amount taken, how frequently the drug is used, body mass, rate of metabolism, or other circumstance.

How long does meth stay in blood?

Meth stays in the blood for approximately 24-48 hours.

How long does meth stay in hair?

The longest amount of detection time for meth is in hair. Once the hair grows out after use, meth can be found months or even years after the cessation of use. Presence of meth in hair depends on the level of meth usage and the length of hair. One half an inch of hair represents about 30 days in hair testing for meth.

How long does meth stay in urine?

Urinalysis can turn up a positive result for meth within 1-4 days, but heavy and/or chronic use can extend this time frame.

How long does meth stay in saliva or sweat?

Meth can stay in saliva for approximately 1-2 days. Evidence of meth use can be detected in sweat within two hours and sometimes over a week after someone has stopped using meth.

Meth and addiction

Meth is highly addictive. It is much less expensive than cocaine and produces a much longer high. Use of meth releases a large amount of neurotransmitters into the brain such as dopamine, a chemical involved in the brain’s reward circuit. The large amount of dopamine released during the meth rush depletes the brain’s supply and leads to a “crash,” including a depressive phase. Users often seek more meth to recreate the euphoria, leading to a cycle of addiction.

Are you worried that your meth use may be getting out of hand? Meth addiction is a treatable condition if you are willing to accept help. Learn more about Methamphetamine Addiction Treatment Programs and Help to be better prepared for what you can expect during the recovery process.

  26. I been smoking meth everyday for the past 4 months sometimes I get a rush like if I’m out and about but if just sitting still doesn’t seen to do as much for me tho sitting still I seem to find I hit it a little more .sometimes I can’t wait to get home so I can hit it not all the time. I just live a normal life and smoke. But here lately I often wonder if I’m a fein.Seems like every time u turn around I got the pipe in my hand. I smoke more than my boyfriend and wonder what he is thinking but we do do it together. I think about stopping but then my hand seems empty.

  27. I have tested everything that goes into or comes out of the human body! Half-lifes vary greatly. More than you would expect. Just like everything and I’m about to break 1 of the rules. NEVER SAY NEVER NEVER SAY ALWAYS when it comes to anything coming out of the human body. I bettere stop before I get too far into things that most don’t need to know and for good reason!!!

  28. I was completly clean when I fell back and started using again. I’ve been smoking it excecifly for about 3weeks now. How long before there doea not show a positive on a urinal drug test!?

  29. I have not used method in 6 days then I smoked about 10 dollars worth.will it still be in my urine 4 days after I use if I drink lots of water

  30. Just to put some experienced knowledge out there about clear. 1st who ever the dude who is saying he went thru 500 worth in 3 hours. Haha u have no idea wat ur saying dude don’t put bad info out there cause there no way u could twist up a zip at least. Sounds like a tweeker dream or u just trying to sound like ur kool. And then saying 10000 of thousands worth and blew thru his stash in a night. Unless u were getting seriously screwed by ur dude and getting a g for 500, just so u no where I come from when I was using I can get a g for 25bucks. And in the worst was using a ball every three days along with other stuff of all kinds. And the dude who is worried about the lump u r right dude if u miss it crystallizes there and stays for a grip idk how long exactly. And the person who was doing blow with dope, not a good idea at all man ur just pushing the envelope on ur heart exploding. I use to do it man but just trust me u don’t mix those two stimulants. I use to do rails of clear and smoke crack together talk about pariniod delusions always felt amazing but every night ended the same by gazing out the window all night wigging out inside. And to all the ppl who smoke that sht don’t u see wat it does in the pipe crystallizing on the sides, ya same thing happens to ur lungs. And who wants to look like a crack head. Don’t bang .it never use a point never for anything even wen ppl tell u it’s the best way, the cleanest and that bs. not worth having an addiction on top of an addiction. I loaded up a shot of CLeaR one time for myself and sat there for a while contemplating either to feel the rush IV heard so much about and make my eyes cross. That had me writin all over but I no how bad of an addict I am just like u no how bad u r, and new I would loose myself completely to the point. Watching close friends poke themselves repetly cause they have no veins, watching ppl shoot into there jugular in the mirror, and here is the worst I’d say just slamming water cause they r so in love w that needle. Don’t b a stupid junkie seriously. Dope and heroin mess up ur morals man I use to live in my car w no license plates at all on it, and if that’s not a cop call I also had just two many drugs on my all the time. Never worried bout it till I found myself charged w 9 felonies all different drugs and tampering w eveindence and they hit me with intent to distribute. Dude I’m 23 and got it dropped down to 2 felonies but seriously ppl if u get anything from this just get out of it now cause I got snitched on by this stupid punk who took the deal the cops always offer u BASTERD. This is the cop line for u and it’s a gurentee basically they’ll say to u, “look we don’t want u ur small game we want the big game ppl the ppl who ruin lives the big dope dealers” tell em take me to jail and never snitch never. Some ppl r panzys tho can’t take the time they earned themselfs. But the cops are thick as hell nowadays can’t do anything I got padded down a couple weeks just cause I was walking down the road and my record and how I look. So ya looking forward to being profiled by the fukkkinggg law the rest of my life. Sorry for the language and sorry for rambling but there u have itand I hope this will help some ppl who r contemplating using drugs or newer or any addict. Dont, all I no is it sucks to jonez for dope all day everyday. Drugs are bad mmmmmk

    1. Hi, Lidaro. I did some research on second-hand meth smoking, and there seems to be little or no research on this topic. I’ve read that few people (especially children) have been found to test positive for meth use as a result of a friend’s use or manufacture. Here’s the article:

      Also, you can do the same by searching using these keywords: meth second hand smoking

  51. Hi did meth on thursday and then i did it again on sunday and at 1am on monday how long will it take for it to get out of my system

    1. Hello Cesar. Experts claim that meth can be detected in the urine 1-4 days after its use. Anyway, every drug affects each person differently, so the period of drug detection varies. It depends on drug dosage, time of use, frequency, metabolism, etc.

  52.

In one shot I have to put a full gram in it. And I have to do that just to feel anything.. and it only gets worse. Any drug I do now I have to inject just to feel it…stay away it will ruin ur life!

  55. I used meth to help get off herion,ya sounds crazy but it worked ,most people told me you can not really have withdralws from Meth but dam they were wrong. I do have a high tolerance so I did do alot and did shoot it so keep that in mind but for day’s after not doing it I felt strait up like shit, please know it is not an easy thing to stop and just not worth the aftermath of the high.. That is only one of my many reason’s to stop doing it or not to even try it. It can change your life more then you think ( and not for the better )and you probly will not realize it till it is to late.

  56. What is 50 milligrams of meth in blood test . Taken st hospital after car accident 11 am. Was it consumed one r two days prior.

    1. Hi Debbie. That seems like a severe reaction. I believe it’s best to take him to the doctor’s where he can be properly examined. I hope everything will be ok soon.

  58. Hi. I seeked out meth to take recreationally. My intentions were to keep it for later on..such as holidays. However my curiosity got the better of me, so I sampled the 1 point I had ($100 worth). I smoked a bit much, didn’t sleep at all that night really, going to work with one hours sleep. The next night I suffered withdrawals, however got through it. Over the next few weeks, I slowly succumbed and finished my wee bag of meth. So I decided to get just 1 more bag, ($300 worth) but this time I definitely won’t smoke it till Xmas. I was wrong. I started to learnby not smoking it at night I could still sleep, and by smoking just a little bit in the mornings would give me more energy to do things. Unintentionally I smoked all my stash. I tried to quit but a month later I thought I’ll get just one more bag ($1000) worth. I’ll definitely have some for Xmas i thought (3months away). I did not realiase at this stage I was making uncharacteristic mistakes at work, had meth jaw, paranoia, abnormal body language in public and supervisors at work had suspicions. The night I got my full gram was at 11pm. Despite promising myself to avoid a puff I thought just a quick one then bed. But after that first taste, I had more and more until it was too late. I panicked but there was nothing I could do. I managed to get 1 hours sleep before a meeting that morning. Well at the meeting I should have kept my mouth shut. I didn’t. I blurted out a lengthy confusing strange discussion that had the whole room in shock. I was so embarrassed. That day however I got so much work done (on next to no food or sleep) that I convinced myself that maybe smoking it not such a bad thing. Just not before meetings. The next day a drug van was called…but it was my workmate they tested. I took this as a warning by my company that ‘we know, sort your sh@t out’. I finished the week well so thought I’ll have one puff before the weekend, then thats it.Before I knew it within 3 hours I had smoked $500 worth, pleaded with supplier to drop off better smoking gear, which in turn he brought over a higher dealer with deals in the tens of thousands. That night I smoked all my stash..but LUCKILY I had the realization of what was happening. I freaked out and confided my addiction to a FRIEND like a scared emotional dog who snapped me back on the right path. I am now drug free, healthy, fit and it can bring a tear to my eye knowing how close I came to losing everything. I thought I could control the drug despite what I read, but no, the drug controlled me. Meth is pure evil and needs to be eliminated.

  59. Meth is craaaazyyy I didn’t sleep for like 3 days until last night when I started consistently using it & I’ve barley eaten in like 4 days & when I did eat I forced myself. It’s a crazy ass drug that makes you feel like the happiest person alive but you can’t get addicted to it because you’ll get super skinny then one day you will have to stop doing it then very quickly get fat. That hasn’t happend to me cuz I barley started doing it && I’m not gonna do it all crazy all the time & my girlfriend made me stop but I wasn’t gonna become a crack head but it is hella fun. I’m usually lazy af but when I’m high on meth I want to go do so much. But I’m not trying influence anything! Drugs are bad! Have fun(;

  65. I’ve been smoking for a couple weeks everyday but small quantities I smoked meth at 9:00am took a urine test at the doctors around 11am and tomorrow I have to take a blood test do I have a chance of it not showing up? But I ain’t being tested for drugs but still

  66. meth is not physically addictive, but mentally.
    i’ve known people who’ve used daily, and slept every night, ate regularly, and did’nt act adversely from it whatsoever.
    but then, i’ve seen others just make their whole world revolve around it and end up being worthless.
    to get off meth for good, it’s best to not have it anywhere near a person. often times moving to a different neighborhood or city is the best way to kick the habit.but, if the person wants to quit, they can, without all of that, fairly easily, with a little willpower.

I am ready to call
