How Long Does Meth Stay In Your System?

Many people want to know how long meth (or methamphetamines) stays in one's system or body. These people may be asking for themselves, a loved one or out of curiosity.

meth drug testing
Urine Drug Test Including Meth

The driving force for wanting to know how long meth can be detected within your system is usually a job. Employers who conduct pre-job drug screening or random drug testing on the job put the fear into many about being caught doing drugs and as a consequence being fired.

The simple answer to the question of how long meth is in the system is around 3 - 6 days. It is passed out by the urine during this time frame. A blood test or urine test after this time frame is unlikely to show positive results.

However, and this is a big one, if your employer asks for a hair follicle sample for drug screening then meth can show up in your body (the hair) for 90 days or longer. Meth is stimulant that affects the central nervous system of the human body.

Addicted meth users over the long haul will experience physical deterioration because of meth usage. Methamphetamines affect the neurotransmitters at the synapses of nerves and can cause or exacerbate a whole host of neurological disorders and disruptive brain functions.


Adverse Negative Effects of Meth in the Human Body

There are some medical uses for low doses of amphetamines such as ADHD and obesity, but these are conducted with a prescription under the care of a doctor.

There are some masking methods, techniques, potions and pills on the market that are supposed to work in order to hide the meth in one's body from the drug lab testers. These are basically ineffective with the new testing techniques (although there are still some people who swear that they have "beat the system").

Besides health risks one of the other major risks from using meth is the loss of a job as we have been discussing. This can also lead to the loss of future jobs as potential employers will check the reason for the loss of the last job.

If you came to this page looking for the answer of how long meth stays in your body, then you may want to seek the help of a drug rehab center. If searching for the answer for a loved one, then helping them to do the same is also recommended.
