Drug screen: Dependent on your job, this is not a typical drug that is tested for in an employment drug screening test. These tests are mainly geared toward illegal medications such as narcotics and marijuana. If you are under the care of a healthcare provider and have a prescription for the medication you should be fine. If you will be operating equipment or driving this may be a drug that is tested for.
