Brief Answer:
Many medicines including pain killers can have a false positive amphetamine

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

Yes some reports of false positive amphetamine are recorded for metoprolol at high dose. I could not find such documentation for other drugs being taken by you.

Hope this helps.
