Amphetamine (AMP), Urine

Includes 1 test
Same Day

This test checks the urine for the presence of amphetamines.

Amphetamines are sympathomimetic amines that stimulate the central nervous system and, in part, suppress appetite. Phentermine, amphetamine, and methamphetamine are drugs used for weight loss. All other amphetamines are substances that are prohibited from being sold and used. In addition to their medical use as anorexic drugs, they are also used in the treatment of narcolepsy, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and cerebral dysfunction.

Symptoms associated with high doses of amphetamine or methamphetamine use include increased blood pressure, mydriasis, hyperthermia, convulsions, and acute psychotic disorder.

Amphetamines are detected in the urine from 1 to 5 days after the last dose.

The following substances are detected: d-amphetamine, l-amphetamine, d, l-amphetamine, phentermine, and 3,4 methylenedioxy amphetamine (MDA).



Important Note

Laboratory test results are the most important parameter for the diagnosis and monitoring of all pathological conditions. 70%-80% of diagnostic decisions are based on laboratory tests. The correct interpretation of laboratory results allows a doctor to distinguish "healthy" from "diseased".

Laboratory test results should not be interpreted from the numerical result of a single analysis. Test results should be interpreted in relation to each individual case and family history, clinical findings, and the results of other laboratory tests and information. Your personal physician should explain the importance of your test results.

At Diagnostiki Athinon we answer any questions you may have about the test you perform in our laboratory and we contact your doctor to get the best possible medical care.
