I drank one beer at 4.5%abv at 2pm and need to UA by 10pm. Will I fail my test?

Unlikely: Unlikely after 8 hours but I would increase your fluid intake and empty your bladder several times after the drink itself!

BTW URINE alcohol tests can be VERY SENSITIVE and thus the best bet is to avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours bbefore the test!
Hope this helps

Ua (Definition)

A ua is a urinalysis, or chemical and microscopic analysis of the urine. The standard urinalysis is performed with a dipstick test for ph, blood, protein, sugar, and ketones. In addition, a urinalysis usually includes a microscope examination to identify if the urine contains cells, "casts" (structures that indicate a problem originating in the kidney) or crystals (such as ...Read more

Is beer detectable in a ua if yes for how long?

Is beer detectable in a ua if yes for how long?

Depends: Alcohol is excreted through kidneys & lungs. So how much is detectable depends on how much was ingested. Both breath & urine can show alcohol for up to 24 hrs, depending on how much, when, state of hydration, like that. So if you are worried about detection of alcohol in your urine, it's best to avoid it altogether. You need to ask yourself if you have a problem with alcohol abuse. See your doctor. ...Read more

I had 6 beers yesterday. I have a non-etg urinalysis drug test today. Last beer was 11pm. Drug test is at 5:00. what are the chances of detection?

I had 6 beers yesterday. I have a non-etg urinalysis drug test today. Last beer was 11pm. Drug test is at 5:00. what are the chances of detection?

Non-etg, only 12 hrs: You were not careful to add am or pm for 5:00. It makes the difference. You were not careful to lmit your drinking. You are not as careful as you'd like to be. I hope it goes fine, but do learn a lesson, not just the facts. Be careful, your life matters. Moderation is always a good idea. ...Read more

Can a dr or lab tell the difference between an oxycodone 15mg and oxycodone 30mg in a ua other then a higher dosage???

Can a dr or lab tell the difference between an oxycodone 15mg and oxycodone 30mg in a ua other then a higher dosage???

Interesting question: I've never thought about that question when dealing with drug screens because to my knowledge they are strictly QUALITATIVE and not QUANTITATIVE. In other words, an employer only really cares if a substance is detectable or not. The police are more interested in HOW MUCH when it comes to Alcohol, weed, cocaine and so forth because the amount of jail time tends to go up with increasing quantities. ...Read more

Contact High: No, to test positive, studies show you would need to be locked in a small closet for several days with people who are chain smoking. However, you should be careful how being around others using drugs might affect a polygraph for a security clearance. ...Read more

Obviously you have very dilute urine and you probably drank a fair amount prior to the test. Small blood and small leukocytes may be normal, but you should check with the person who ordered the test. ...Read more

The ua drug test when u take a ua what does the ua look for what materials does it detect if I were to take cough and cold medicine would I fail

Depends: There are different tests, and different agencies (the gov't, employers, cops, schools) sometimes use very different panels of tests. They usually test for marijuana, amphetamines, pcp, opiates, benzos, cocaine. Some test for many more, including the newer drugs ("bath salts", k2/spice). Some cough meds have dextromethorphan or Codeine and those can show + tests. Others don't and will be negative. ...Read more

I swallowed my boyfriends semen last night and he is a heavy heroin user. And I had to take a UA today will that cause my test to come up positive?

I swallowed my boyfriends semen last night and he is a heavy heroin user. And I had to take a UA today will that cause my test to come up positive?

Unlikely: It is not likely that swallowing the semen of a heroin user will cause you to have a positive urine test. However, by having a heroin user as a boyfriend you are exposing yourself to many dangers, including HIV. Please reconsider your choice to have relations with a drug abuser.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat 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.

I've been on 8mg subutex for 1.5yrs. Its been 7 days since last dose. How long will withdrawal symptoms last & how long til I can pass a ua dip test?

Can last for weeks: Cold turkey withdrawal is almost guaranteed to result in relapse, and is part of the problems people with addiction have with "wanting what they want when they want it." ideally you should taper down by 2 mg a week or every other week. Withdrawal can last weeks and is one of the factors promoting relapse. If you are not in counseling, do so. Urine tests can pick up Suboxone for a week or more. ...Read more
