I relapsed using meth got a urine drug test at pain clinic it's been 72 hours I got a detox called flush out will it work or can I be clean ?

No: The people who sold you "Flush" are laughing all the way to the bank. They know you won't sue for being defrauded with this phony product, because you'd have to tell the world you're a meth user. Please stop doing this. You were given other warnings about other drugs that aren't true, but the dangers of meth haven't been exaggerated. The meth users I've autopsied do try to claw off their flesh. ...Read more

Does vinegar work for hair detoxing. Is it detectable on a hair follicle drug test.

Hair detoxing?: While I suspect that you are looking to cheat on a hair follicle drug test, I will say that there is no such thing as hair detoxing. Dyes or bleaches will invalidate the test (not what you are looking for).

20wks pregnant. Heavy marijuana user before found out. Is there anyway to detox body before pre-natal visit to get a good result on a drug test?

20wks pregnant. Heavy marijuana user before found out. Is there anyway to detox body before pre-natal visit to get a good result on a drug test?

Not really: THC attaches to fat cells in your body & leaks out over time. There are no flush agents that work. Light users may become negative in a week of abstinence while heavy users may remain positive for a month. If you get on a CPS watch list they will be able to find it in baby at birth. Stay clean & be honest with your docs and things may go well. ...Read more

Your menstrual period has nothing to do with the rate of kidney excretion. ...Read more

I am currently taking diclofenac & have a drug test soon for work, will this show up on the test so i know to take the bottle in with me when i go in?

No, but. . .: Diclofenac is an anti inflammatory medication that is not controlled and not typically screened in a work physical drug test. However, I do see Lorazepam on your list of medications. Lorazapam is a medication that is typically screened in a work physical drug test. I would bring your current prescription bottle for that. ...Read more
