I take 10 MG of Lexapro a day. Xanax as needed. I drug tested via swab last week and it came back positive for meth and amphetamines. Neither have i ever used in my life. The only other drug I took was a Zytrec D. I am baffled and need answers

I am a 71 year old male and I started Xanax several years ago and I started having retention problems about 5 years ago. My Dr wanted to do several terrible sounding tests but my better sense said to wait and check out the meds I take first.
I have been taking otezla lately for almost three months. Just in the last four days I have had insomnia. I am taking otezla for pa. My skin is almost clean. Any suggestions for the insomnia. Thank you
