Question

I heard that supplements with DMAA were pulled from on-base stores. Do they contain any ingredients that would cause a false positive on a urinalysis drug test?

OPSS Answer

Following the FDA announcement in April 2013 that DMAA is illegal as a dietary supplement ingredient, as well as the release of the June 2013 Report of the Department of Defense 1,3-dimethylamylamine (DMAA) Safety Review Panel, products containing DMAA are no longer available for sale on any military installation. Taking DMAA will not cause a false positive for any of the drugs that service members are currently tested for, but this situation could change soon. If you would like to know more about urinalysis and drug testing, we suggest you read the OPSS infosheet Dietary supplements and drug testing, which includes contacts for more information.
