If you take MDMA, will it show up on a drug test?

At some time in your life, an employer, a family member or the government may ask you to take a drug test. It’s important to understand what drug tests can detect and what might happen if you fail one.

MDMA is usually tested for using hair, urine, saliva (spit), sweat or blood. The detection timeframes may change depending on how much MDMA you take and how often you take it. Generally, MDMA can be detected for 1–4 days in urine, 1–4 days in saliva, 1–2 days in blood, 2 days in sweat and up to 90 days in hair. It is important to remember that every person’s body is different and will process drugs differently.

If you fail a drug test, this may impact your employment, government support, court cases or official licences or registrations. At work, you may face legal consequences, especially if you have put the safety of others at risk.
