User avatar Hi Yogibear,
Clearance times for drugs have certain variables, ie., age, weight, metabolism, heath state, amount of drug consumption, etc. etc. Generally speaking, (depending on the above mentioned factors) Methamphetamines typical drug detection/clearance time may range from 1-3 hours to 2-4 days.

I totally agree with Theresa.

Some people pass the test after a few days of taking amphetamines, but it is a crap shoot. Exercising may speed up your metabolism.
