Amphetamine drug testing

About Amphetamine


Amphetamines are synthetic stimulants. Their current medical use is limited, with only Dexedrine (dexamphetamine sulphate) currently available for use in the treatment of narcolepsy – where the patient cannot help suddenly falling asleep.

Do you test for Amphetamine?

Alphabiolabs can perform Amphetamine drug testing. We test using state of the art drug testing equipment and processes to ensure that if Amphetamine is present it will be detected. Also we can detect Amphetamine over a period of time to show if a subject has stopped using Amphetamine. For example if it has been established that they have used the drug in the past, but now claim to have stopped.

Amphetamine Availability

A drug prevalence report by the EMCDDA suggests that about 11 million Europeans have tried amphetamine; however usage varies greatly depending on the country.


Amphetamine is a powerful stimulant which increases the amount of dopamine in the brain affecting the central nervous system (CNS). Even from just a small amount the CNS responses that can result include increased wakefulness, physical activity and respiration, decreased appetite, hyperthermia and euphoria.

Physically, the drug can increase heart rates as well as widening the pupils. High doses sometimes lead to users experiencing a rapid flow of ideas and the sense of increased physical power. Negative effects include disturbed sleep patterns, hyperactivity, nausea, delusions of power, increased aggressiveness and irritability and mental issues.


Long-term effects of high doses of amphetamine can result in damage to the heart, liver, kidney and lungs. Hyperthermia and convulsions can result in death.
