how long


I have a question. How long does it take for meth to get out of your system if you are injecting at least a 1/4 to 1/2 a day for about 1 to 1&1/2 weeks

Evelle8 - My kid could usually pass a UA after 3 days.... but we stopped doing them because we didn't NEED to know if the drug was in her blood or urine - her behaviors were what we didn't like, and if she could have controlled those while using, we would probably have been ok.

Of course, I have never met a meth addict who can control their behaviors - even if they can pass a UA - for several weeks.

Just my experience.

Hi evelle8, it takes as long as it takes. The physical symptoms go kinda quickly but the mental aftermath, guilt, depression, worry about the future, they take forever.
God bless

Here's something I didn't know. My brother takes Meth by injection and he is on parole but since he has a script for painkillers they blend together. So he tests negative for drugs because his painkillers mask the Meth. So he NEVER violates probation. They show up but only as his painkiller.

It's ammonia, batteries, and cough medicine- AND YOU"RE PUTTING IT INTO YOUR VEINS. WTF? just stop it now. Yes, it'll hurt for a while, but then you'll be fine.
