One Xanax (alprazolam) would not usually come up in commercially available hair tests. If you mean one Xanax (alprazolam) per day, then it would - one Xanax (alprazolam) ever would not. ...Read more

I have been clean and in a program for 7 years and just had a drug test show up positive for Codeine without taking it. The test said 47ng/mL- causes?

We need to talk: As a pathologist, I would not accept this level as indicating codeine use.

The lab's pathologist should agree or risk liability. I believe you're clean. If someone else doesn't, get a lawyer. ...Read more
