Could i get a saliva urine or hair test when i get a drug screen for cvs as a supervisor on the retail part?
Don't know: Many large pharmacy chains will drug test either all employees, or employees in the pharmacy part of the store, especially supervisors. Walgreens does testing for supervisors at time of hire, and then randomly therafter. I cannot find anything published about CVS, but apparently their application says that drug testing is part of the process. Doesn't say anything about what is tested. ...Read more
Is there a urine test to check soley for neurontin (gabapentin). I did a 10 panel urine screen, can they pull urine out of the scrn that i did or a diff one, help!
See answer: Since Neurontin (gabapentin) is not a controlled substance nor it is an addictive drug it is not tested for unless there is some specific reason to test for it. A 10 panel drug screen tests for cocaine, amphetamines, methamphetamines (meth), marijuana, methadone, opiates, phencyclidine (pcp), barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and tricyclic antidepressants. ...Read more
When getting a annual physical does the blood work include a drug test, and does the physical require a urine sample? I'm worried about false positive
It does not: You can only be tested for drugs of abuse with your consent. Your physician doing your routine history and physical will not screen you for recreational substances. False-positive drug-of-abuse tests that have medicolegal consequences are very uncommon as the results must be verified by a test using a different chemical principle. And even if you're actually using, your physician is your friend. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not routinely: However, if you have ever been investigated by CPS, have visitors that smell like weed or act like drug users, expect it. Hospital personnel, nurses & physicians are required by law to report any suspicion. If none of these applies to you, I would not expect it to be done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If someone is taking Suboxone will this show up on a drug test for a job.. If I am going for a drug test for a new job do I need to tell them I have a prescriptions for this.
Depends: Most tests done by employers does not include drugs usually given by prescription; in addition, Buprenorphine (the main drug in suboxone) does not show up on most screening tests. However, if they ask you for what prescription meds you are on, not telling the truth will get you in trouble. Testing + for bup might get you into trouble, but lying almost always will. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If the doctors took a urine sample and tested it with a dipstick would it show that you are pregnant ?
Depends: The standard dipstick used to test urine does diagnose pregnancy. It is most commonly used to help diagnose urinary tract infections or problems with the kidneys. However, doctors do use dipstick pregnancy tests in their offices similar to those you can buy in the drugstore. So it depends on exactly which kind of dipstick was used. ...Read more
I have a drug test coming up and I will be using a donors urine for subsitution. If kept in a bottle at room temperature will it stay good for 10 hour?
Unethical: As a general rule, most of us Doctors are held to a high standard of care and ethics that preclude us from answering questions that would condone a person trying to cheat on their UDS. Best for you to stop the illegal drugs and seek help if you are truly addicted. Best wishes. ...Read more
Will suboxon show up as an opiate on a drug test for employment? I have to pee clean or i will not be hired!
Probably not.: It depends on the lab and how extensive of a drug screen. Routine drug screens do not pick up suboxone because it is a synthetic opioid. However, if the employer pays for a more extensive drug screen than just routine and suboxone is a drug they specifically test for, then it will be positive depending on the timing of your last dose. Suboxone is long-acting to prevent withdrawl symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chlamydia, gonorrhea: It depends on what is available at the office/place you seek treatment.It is common to be able to check for chlamydia & gonorrhea with a urine sample at emergency rooms & urgent care centers. Not all places have the means to do all tests. Sometimes trichomonas can be seen on a microscopic exam of the urine, but that method is not the best way to check for trich. Urine tests are less reliable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can a gynecologist test you for STD without telling you, if you came in for routine yearly Pap smear? I am a self pay patient.
It could happen: Because almost everybody is supposed to get routine screenings for STD's, it becomes so "normal" to do it for almost all patients that it would be easy for a doctor or nurse to forget to mention that the tests are being done. For example, a nurse might count a patient's pulse without ever saying that she is counting the pulse. ...Read more
I'll be going for a urine and blood test drug screen for employment & i've Fibroids ,can they see that ?Please answer in honest to this question.Thx
Not sure of question: How useful are home tests for what? If you are asking about whether the home tests are useful in seeing if illegal substances are present in your urine, i wouldn't bet my job on it. Many employers use tests that are much more sensitive than most of the "home tests" in determining presence of banned/illegal substances. Better you stop using than trying to avoid detection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
