What amount water do I drink to pass a drug test?

What amount water do I drink to pass a drug test?

First of all, no: ethical doctor is, or at least should be, telling you how to falsify the result of a medical test. Second of all, one of the things measured in virtually all urine drug tests nowadays is the specific gravity and/or creatinine level, and this can show definitively if you have been water-loading, and your test will be voided. Some people will consider it a positive test. So, there is no amount. ...Read more

Not on Health Tap: Not one of our physicians is interested in helping you beat a drug test. Asking us to do so is asking us to break the fundamental rules under which our ethics allow us to serve our patients. However we are very interested in helping you get treatment and education for your addiction and the disease that causes it. ...Read more

Will drinking a lot of water help you pass a drug test?

Danger: Likely not (drs expect people to try this, and can detect/confirm this maneuver easily), but also water intoxication exists; seizures, coma and death are possible if drinking excessive water (causes hyponatremia and other imbalances). The best way to pass a drug test is to stay clean. Call na/aa hotlines, or 1855detox-00 if you need help with drug problems. Good luck ! ...Read more

If I did about a quarter of a gram of cocaine on Sunday night will I pass a drug test on Friday afternoon?  I have been drunking water everyday but no

Should: Cocaine and its metabolites are likely to be out of your system in 5 days. Do yourself a favor and never to drugs again.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

March 27th I smoked pot 3hits at 4in the morning. Im not a regular smoker & have to take a drug test in 1 week. Ive drank a lot of water, will I pass?

Cannot say in your: particular case, but with INFREQUENT USE, it will generally clear in a week. There are not reliable ways to speed it up. Grilled meat is as good of a stimulant of liver metabolism as anything. At 5 days, a QUANTITATIVE test from the pharmacy can give you an idea if things are good. 5 days is mostly good. (BUT DONT DO ANYMORE) ...Read more

I have a drug test tomorrow morning. I am 5'2 125 pounds. I'm 33 days weed free. I drank and excessive amount of water over the 33 days, and ate right, for the most part, and stayed semi active. I smoked maybe 2 to 3 times a week, less than a gram (normal

Hard to say: My best guess is that it is likely to be negative, since only very heavy smokers (usually daily or 5X/week) who have smoked for months/years stay positive for over 30 days. However, it depends on the quality of the marijuana used (how much THC) and for how long you were smoking it. Congrats on quitting. Stop excessive water use since a dilute urine specimen will be considered adulterated. ...Read more

What amount water can I drink to get my system clean for a urine drug test I have to take tomorrow?

What amount water can I drink to get my system clean for a urine drug test I have to take tomorrow?

You can't: The vast majority of drugs are metabolized by the liver, and while some of the metabolites are excreted in urine, they are not cleared in any quantity that way. Test kits now almost all test for the level of dilution in the urine, looking for people who are drinking excessive amounts of water to try to "beat" tests. A low specific gravity or creatinine level from high water intake invalidates test ...Read more

If I used 1 gram of cocaine. And I have a drug test in 82 hours will i pass. I workout everyday and I drink a lot of water and eat health. 5'10" 180lb?

If I used 1 gram of cocaine. And I have a drug test in 82 hours will i pass. I workout everyday and I drink a lot of water and eat health. 5'10" 180lb?

Possible: But cocaine metabolites can stay in your system for days to a week or more. If they are using a hair follicle test, it will detect use within the last 6 months. I would be remiss if I did not address the far more pressing issue that using cocaine is extremely dangerous. If you workout, eat healthy, and drink lots of water, why are you doing something so damaging to your body? Seek help! ...Read more

Can I do water therapy to cleanse from drug test?

Can I do water therapy to cleanse from drug test?

bad idea..: ..If what you expect is to drink excessive water to convert a tox screen into a (false) negative. This is a very common situation, expected by dr, easy to recognize (when osmolality, sodium, are checked at the same time) and dangerous, water intoxication, hyponatremia, seizures, coma, death may occur if overdone. If that was not the question, please rephrase it. Ask your dr. Stay clean. Good luck. ...Read more

My friend drank a lot of water today to pass a drug test, and now he is experiencing symptoms of water intoxication. How worried should I be?

Worry.: I'd worry about 2 things. First, he abuses drugs- very unhealthy and leads to an early death. Second, if he is exhibiting signs of water intoxication, i would get him to the emergency room right now! ...Read more

How about the drugs?: There is nothing you can add or subtract from diet to pass a drug test, except eliminating the drugs. You don't need all that water, and it will cause a dilute urine which will automatically flunk the drug test. This idea that we need lots of water is bogus; thirst is the best guide. We get all the water we need from our food (60% water), if your urine is dilute you are drinking too much. ...Read more

How long does it take to get weed out of your system for a pee drug test if you drink a lot of water?

Depends: Freq and amt of use matters, so does BMI, age, etc, etc. Half-life varies from 1 to 10 days! If you rarely use a bit and are thin, a week may be ok but not for sure. To be safer a few weeks are best. Good luck! Do the water several days before but esp test day! ...Read more

If cocaine and beer usage was 8 days ago and I have three days untill my drug test will i pass if i been dringking nothing but water since saturday?

Depends: Cocaine stays in the body about 3 days with one time use. Its metabolites may be detected in urine longer than that. Chronic heavy use will show up in urine or hair for weeks. Most drug testing for Cocaine tests negative after 3 days off it. ...Read more

I smoked two hookah pens...I inhaled it...It had water vapor coming out and it was flavored.Will it show up in a drug test? I'm peeing in a cup.

I smoked two hookah pens...I inhaled it...It had water vapor coming out and it was flavored.Will it show up in a drug test? I'm peeing in a cup.

Drug test: This depends on what was in your hookah pen. If it had fruit flavorings only, it will likely not show up on a drug test. However, if it had thc, nicotine, or others in it, these could show up on your drug screen if testing for those. You need to know also that these vapors can be irritating and damaging to lungs. http://www.fda.gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm173401.htm. ...Read more

I took a roxicodone (oxycodone) and 5 hours later took a 10 panel drug test i drank a lot of water will i pee clean?

I took a roxicodone (oxycodone) and 5 hours later took a 10 panel drug test i drank a lot of water will i pee clean?

Probably not: Five hours is more than enough time for the oxycodone to be absorbed and metabolized by the body, so your urine will likely show traces of the drug, even if you drank a lot of water. It also depends on the sensitivity of the drug screen. Good luck. ...Read more

Can I pass a drug test in 12 days if I'm drinking 4litters of water and taking 1000mg of niacin a day and I stopped smoking two days ago?

Can I pass a drug test in 12 days if I'm drinking 4litters of water and taking 1000mg of niacin a day and I stopped smoking two days ago?

Likely to pass: Nicotine and cotinine should be out of your system in 14 days. Niacin is not likely to help. Now that you are off tobacco. do not ever use it again.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
