If I smoke marijuana everyday but stopped 15 hours before a portable oral swab test will I fail still ? Do cigarettes mask the metabolites of THC ?

If I smoke marijuana everyday but stopped 15 hours before a portable oral swab test will I fail still ? Do cigarettes mask the metabolites of THC ?

Positive w/in a day: I expect that is a 24 hour day. So, you'll likely test positive. At the time of testing, cigarettes can make results unreliable - but that is not a pass. They'll just redo the test. So, unless you are close to the 24 hrs, you'll be snagged. Play it safe until it is legal. Be active to make your POV heard. Vote for candidates who reflect your ideas. Stay out of prison so you can vote. ...Read more

The : The marijuana is no longer in your system. The high spirits you are experiencing are not due to the drug. You may be experiencing mania, a kind of artificial high spirits and high energy that can be a symptom of bipolar disorder. These symptoms often don't occur until one reaches their late teens or early twenties. If you continue to have anxiety and paranoid thoughts, you need to discuss this with your doctor. Excellent medications are available. If you don't wish your doctor to disclose your marijuana use to your parents, ask him/her to treat this information with confidentiality. ...Read more

More evaluation: You may need more evaluation, what was your cortisol level? Did they obtain an acth level? Other labs? It is true it could be something else, but cortisol levels need to be interpreted by an expert as the normal value depends on the patient's health. If sick, levels should be at stress response level. Sometimes, more tests are indicated. ...Read more

Yes: Bipolar appears to be mediated by multiple neurotransmitter systems in the brain, in particular serotonin. Therefore, when people with bipolar (1 or 2) take antidepressants it can provoke outright mania. Thc has a similar effect (among others) and also provokes a paranoid response. Your brain is a delicate mechanism--when manic, it's an untuned ferrari. Don't throw a wrench into the pistons! ...Read more

I have addisons disease. They want me on prednisone of hydrocortisone. Which one has less negative side effects? Thanks

I have addisons disease. They want me on prednisone of hydrocortisone. Which one has less negative side effects? Thanks

Either should be OK: If the dose is adjusted properly, either hydrocortisone or prednisone can be used for Addison's disease, keeping in mind that prednisone is about 5 times as potent. Prednisone has the advantage of a longer half life so twice a day works well. For hydrocortisone, some people need to take it 3 times a day to avoid having symptoms of fatigue for part of the day. ...Read more
