I am very careful about my medication.i take morphine xr every 12 hours and oxycodone for break through pain for a spine disorder. I took my normal 3 month drug screen and the doctor called and said amphetamine was found. I was floored. I take other meds regularly like ladix micro k BUPROPION 450 and occasionally soma when needed. All is prescribed. I even went to the er for a hurt shoulder just to get vhecked but asked that they dont guve me anything because i was on a pain management agreement. I get horrible headaches and the only thing that helps is caffine. Didnt have any so my daughters friend gave me a diet pill bexause they normally have caffine in them. I dont have yhe cintainer or brand and told my doctor this. What will happen next. I do not want to lose my doctor over this especially when i am so careful. What vould have happened and what do i expect. He said not to worry but to get the name of pill. Which i couldnt. I have not heard from him and i am devastated. Should i be worried. Can this be a mistake that can be proved.

Robin, Most diet pills and bupropion can cause a false positive for amphetamine.  Bupropion alone should get you of the hook if your doctor if he/she does some quick research. Also, you can go to and sign up for a 30 days free trial of urintel, enter your medications, and create a print-out for your doctor.  Or, you can share the site with your doctor.
