Alright, I for one don't believe this... well I'm pretty positive that it's not true but some stupid kid that rides the bus with me said "I took sudaffed and failed for amphetamines the other night." I didn't believe him but I didn't say anything about him being a dumb ass not knowing what he was saying... now if it's true i'm going to look dumb haha, but anyways just wanted to make sure.

Yep, in some tests ephedrine/pseudoephedrine can make it positive for methamphetamine. Thing is, if he says that is pseudoephedrine they can send it away for a more detailed test & they'll confirm the fact that it's not amphetamine/methamphetamine.

Oh, I didn't know that because once I took 2 sudaffeds and pass the next day for amphetamines, oh well I don't know or think that he got in trouble for it... because here most of the drug tests they do go to the labs regaurdless if what the kids say triggered it/.

I can buy sudafed over the counter here, but they're taking DXM products behind counters and you have to be 18 to buy them now. (in utah)

DXM can still be bought over the counter but sudafed and such items have to be be bought from a pharmacists and ur only allowed so many per year.

I'm in Morehead, KY.

Pseudofed if behind the counter because people use it to make meth. You have to show ID and they write your name down. DXM is not like that, but some stores only sell it if you are 18. This is in KS. I've heard DXM can give false positives for PCP.

DXM can cause false positives for PCP and Opiates, I failed for opiates after a 800mg trip, the next day I got tested and they accused me of using Heroin, but I persuaded them to believe me.

Actually smarty pants, his post wasn't pointless since it accurately answered the question. And pseudofedrine is the generic name for sudafed so he in fact did mean pseudofed. Don't be so rude in the future.
