What could cause me to test positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine on a urine drug test that was confirmed using gc-ms when I do NOT use drugs?

What DO you take?: Someone else's specimen may have been mislabeled as yours. Or, you may be taking a medication that is "cross-reactive" with amphetamines and caused a false-positive result. Labs usually include such cautionary information in their reports. Go over the lab report and your meds with the ordering physician. ...Read more

Access To Care: Check with your local mental health agency to see if they offer special programs for uninsured patients. Most counties around the country have such programs. There are often free clinics that provide free healthcare or healthcare based upon financial need. Medicaide is offered in every state, but the acceptance criteria are often difficult to meet. Good luck. ...Read more

Recently diagnosed with MS had three day meth pred treatment last dose finished two days ago i feel ill think i now have shingles should I be worried?

Recently diagnosed with MS had three day meth pred treatment last dose finished two days ago i feel ill think i now have shingles should I be worried?

Concerns: Would handle many items ASAP. First, get shingles treated and then consider shingles vaccine. Since a live virus vaccine, no immune MS drugs for a month after. Would suggest then, start an MS disease modifying agent plus vitamin D supplements. ...Read more

Have MS had 3 day meth pred got shingles 2 days later as well have had two episodes of seizure like symptoms in past week should I be concerned?

See your neurologist: Things are clearly getting out of control. I presume you had a recent relapse, and now have had complication of shingles, and increased MS symptomatology in spite of methylprednisolone. You do NOT list an MS disease modifying agent. Is this an omission? It is critical that you take such a medication to gain some control over your MS. ...Read more

Took 4mg klonopin (clonazepam) 1 time only from old script.Got a gc/ms test in 9days how long will it take to be undetectable..Note i never abused it...I go sub dr

Good question: It depends on the test sensitivity. The half life of Klonopin (clonazepam) varies but typically half is gone in 12 to 16 hous so you may be out of the woods. 4 mg is a huge dose by the way. People who are taking this medication for anxiety or essential tremor typically take 0.5 to 1 mg every 12 hours. Don't do that anymore. Please. Share your concerns with the doctor who wrote you that rx ! ...Read more

I took a drug test labeled 35533N SAP 5-50/300 GC/MS from Quest Diagnostics. What do all these numbers represent? What drugs are screened?

Drug Test: you would need to have access to the order catalog from Quest to answer your question. This is likely the number by which the test materials themselves are ordered. You should be able to get the results of what was tested by request of the facility or organization that tested you. ...Read more

Will marijuana be flushed out and will i pass a drug test in 19 days after consumption? (smoked 2-3 times last month) will it pass a gc/ms test?

Will marijuana be flushed out and will i pass a drug test in 19 days after consumption? (smoked 2-3 times last month) will it pass a gc/ms test?

Probably: This isn't the place to debate the wisdom of the cannabis laws or whether it is wise to penalize otherwise good employees. If this is an ordinary urine test, a very low level might simply mean passive exposure and it would be hard to prove you have been a user. As long as this remains illegal, please plan ahead. Best wishes. ...Read more

Will alprazolam show a false positive for nordiazepam and or oxazepam. The confirmation test was done via gc/ms from the lab i use. ?

Will alprazolam show a false positive for nordiazepam and or oxazepam. The confirmation test was done via gc/ms from the lab i use. ?

Probably yes: My educated "guess" is that most drug blood screening is geared toward "groups" or "classes" of substances. Alprazolam, diazepam, lorazepam, and the others you mentioned are all considered to be in the class of benzodiazopine derivatives. Use of any of them will trigger a positive response, but is not specific to which is in your system. Other classes include thc, cocaine, crystal meth, etoh, etc. ...Read more
