Meth False Positive on urine test?


ladybug -
   I thought my husband has been clean since March 13th but for some reason I've been suspicious lately and gave him a urine test this morning. Well, it came up positive. He swears he hasn't been using. This is from the same batch of tests I ordered when I found out about his "habit" in March. After he quit I tested him twice and both times they were negative. So... how accurate are these tests? Is he BSing me or what? I went to Eckerd today and bought one of the over the counter tests ($29.99). I'm now waiting for him to get home from work so I can use this other test. I just can't believe this is happening. I'm feel numb.

   I was reading posts last night and someone suggested checking their heart rate when they were sleeping - if it is elevated (120 beats+ per minute) they are using -- that might be a "back up" confirmer (and cheap besides) You said too, "I'm numb" -- this is hard, isn't it? Do take care of YOU. Remember, you can't control and do it for him - he has to want to himself.

   He most likely used ... and just as we do about most everything he lied about it ... Like someone else said go with your gut…

   I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I would say he probably used and it's positive for that reason.

   the tests from the drug store are pretty accurate. i popped one on my ex once and he failed it....finally admitted he had been using. they usually have a box in them that you send off to the lab for official results, but from experience...i would say if the test comes up positive i would bet he is using. what does your gut tell you??

   It's so bizarre to me how people can't tell when their husbands/wives are on meth. My husband could take one hit or do one line and I knew. I didn't need a drug test to tell me he was high...I just knew and I was always right.
