How does a home drug test detect drugs in your urine such as meth and why do some prescription drugs test positive ?

Drug tests: Drug tests are used as much to determine what the person has not taken as to what the person has taken. Drug tests may look for illegal drugs. More often they test patients to make sure that they are taking their medications. Sometimes patients sell their medications or feel that they do not need the medication and stop taking it. Drug tests are used for these purposes. ...Read more

My vitamins say they contain polyvinyl alcohol. Will this make a drug test positive for alcohol?

My vitamins say they contain polyvinyl alcohol. Will this make a drug test positive for alcohol?

No, however...: No, this chemical does not have any real relationship to the type of alcohol we drink and will not raise your alcohol level one bit. However, while considered non-toxic, I do not think it's wise to take a vitamin with synthetic chemicals like this. It is probably a sign that this is not the best quality vitamin; there are many better choices. See http://tinyurl.com/mzrkbx8 ...Read more

Please explain which drug show up as THC if i don't smoke but take precription drugs?

Really very few: Older tests could have false positives caused by Ibuprofen and other nsaids, but newer tests do not. I am only aware of Protonix (pantoprazole) causing false positives on screening tests. A confirmatory test, which should always be done if testing for forensic purposes (jobs, legal etc.), will not have false positives and can reliably detect thc. Hemp oil or hemp teas will give a true positive. ...Read more

What drugs show up as thc? I don't smoke, but I take prescription drugs.

Cross reactivity: It is quite common for some medications to cross react with the screening test for THC. For instance, Protonix (pantoprazole) and certain HIV meds can do this. You will have to request to have your sample (urine) sent for confirmation testing via gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. ...Read more

Do regular doctors urine tests show alcohol?

Do regular doctors urine tests show alcohol?

UDS vs. other: A standard urine drug screen (uds) usually does not test for ethanol (alcohol in beer/wine/etc.). Alcohol is usually tested by a blood alcohol level (bal) via blood draw. However, there is a test for urine that looks for ethyl glucuronide (etg), which is a breakdown product of ethanol, and is specifically designed to determine if you've had alcohol in the last 80 hours. ...Read more

Do you take a drug test for school sports physical ?

Usually not: I do not believe that this is routine at the high school level. It is at the college level. The head of athletics department would be the best source for a response. Some medications if prescribed and monitored by a physician are allowed by the ncaa. However the athlete still has to be very careful especially regarding sports drinks and otc medications and supplements. ...Read more
