so here's the story.. I've been pretty active in the gym here lately and started to take a new pre-workout called ACG3 which contains 1,3 dimethyl.. Anyway I'm about to start a new job that requires a urine drug test and blood work. The other day I was on bodybuilding.com and came across a thread saying the 1,3 dimethyl would show on a drug test as amphetamines, resulting in a false positive drug test. Now I can't even sleep because I'm about to have a nervous breakdown! I've tried to research as much as I could but have not seen anything else in regards to dimethyl and a drug test. Somebody please share any information on this suppliment so maybe I can sleep at night 
 
btw ACG3 was last taken on a tuesday afternoon, drug test and blood work was taken friday afternoon so there was roughly 48 hours in between the two.

Dunno'... You may want to contact your family doctor.. OR, you could buy a urine test kit from walgreens and see if it comes up as a positive, or better yet contact a local testing facility and see what they would say.
Good luck, RB

I may try to contact the place i took the test at and see what they say.. before I took the test i asked the lady if things like that would show up on the test and she said they wouldnt.. maybe im just over reacting... the only thing i can find about the substance is that its banned by the ncaa during the given season of sports.. it said they are ok to take during the off season; hopefully everything will work out

Well,, if yer losing sleep worring over it,,, by all means DO Not Take Dope for sleeping... :)
 
The testing facilities usually know just about everything that would reflect a postive result. Even if it were to come back as a hit, you very well could contest the positive result and provide the stuff as legally obtained, over the counter evidence. I have had emplyees test positive for legally issued medications. Once the prescription was produced to the HR dept. , most cases all was well. Sometimes a re-test was required.

It just all depends on what they are testing for.  If they're just testing for certain things, it may never even show up.

from my understanding they are testing for amphetamines, pot, PCP, and something else... its just something in the 1,3 dimethyl that comes up as amphetamines.. Ive never even smoked a cigrette; I wouldnt even know how to do drugs lol

Usually, they ask what medicines you're currently taking. If you told them you were taking that supplement, I'm sure they know what it shows as and will report accordingly.

yeah I should have wrote down my current supplements but it just didn't come to mind when they asked; I will probably be kicking myself in the face this time tomorrow
