Will a diabetic medication or insulin show up on a urine drug test?

Will a diabetic medication or insulin show up on a urine drug test?

Unlikely: Urine drug tests are looking for specific drugs like marijuana, cocaine, other narcotic analgesics, benzodiazepines (xanax/valium /ativan) & any other drug specifically requested. Insulin & other diabetic meds are not drugs of abuse & thus not looked for. Read more

Can taking a benedryl affect a drug test?

Can taking a benedryl affect a drug test?

It depends,,: It depends on what you're being tested for and how much benedryl you took. Apparently it may cause a false positive result for Methadone in some urine drug screens using competitive binding immunoassays, and if too much is taken, it can cause blurry vision, photophobia, heart failure, and death, but a lot has to be taken. Otherwise, there should not be much of a problem. Good luck. Read more

Will Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 30mg affect a drug test after one dose?

Will Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 30mg affect a drug test after one dose?

Yes, depending on: When testing is done relative to when it was taken. However, "drug screens" are read as positive by the concentration of a drug or its metabolite in the urine sample; therefore, depending on timing, the concentration may fall below the cut-off point for a "positive" screen. It isn't a problem for anyone who can show a prescription bottle in his or her name. Diversion is a different story. Read more

Your son has a: Bigger problem, and if you are aware of this and not talking to him about personal honesty and dishonesty, and the difference, you are enabling him in making bad choices. Depending on what the urine test is for, if he is found out (there are a number of tests done on urine that can detect adulteration or someone elses pee) there can be serious legal consequences beyond not getting a job.

Will pseudoephedrine hydrochloride affect a drug test?

Will pseudoephedrine hydrochloride affect a drug test?

Possibly: "false positive testing" occurs when a test finds evidence of illegal drug use when no drugs were taken. This can be a result of some over-the counter medications having chemical structures similar to illegal drugs. Pseudofed, found in many allergy and "cold" medications is one of these drugs.

I'm in Lamictol for seizures. Would this affect a drug test? & I have smoke pot for several yrs (small amnts) haven't smoked in 2 weeks, would it show?

Cannabis: Would show up on a screen for drugs of abuse but not on most standard tests. Single use of marijuana should be out of your urine in 1 to 7 days. Regular use of marijuana – should be out of urine in 7 to 100 days. Single use marijuana can be detected 12 to 24 hours in blood. Regular use marijuana can be detected for 2 to 7 days in blood. Marijuana regular use detected in hair for months. Single _ Read more

Does amoxicillin and clavulanate affect a drug test for thc?

It should not: Even if one of these produces an interference by one method, thc assays must be confirmed by another test using a different chemical principle if they are to have any consequences to the person. This isn't the place to talk about the wisdom of the marijuana laws or testing which may have adverse consequences. Good luck and I hope things work out for you. Read more

Can you tell me if I haven't smoked since about 2 weeks before christmas of 2013 will I pass my urine drug test?

Smoked what??: If you are talking about marijuana, it is highly likely that 5 months out, even if you were a daily heavy user of marijuana, that it would be negative by now. I have seen some people test positive 3 months out, but that is the longest I have seen, and that was in a very heavy user who was also very heavy (thc accumulates in fat -the more fat, the more accumulation). If tobacco, it'll be negative. Read more

What happens if I hang out with people that smoke weed but don't smoke it myself, will it show up in a drug test?

What happens if I hang out with people that smoke weed but don't smoke it myself, will it show up in a drug test?

It depends: It depends on how much and how vigorously you inhale, and how closed the room atmosphere is. If there's little non-smoky air, you would be effectively "smoking" with every breath you take. (not as strongly as those who are purposefully smoking, though.) remote possibility your urine could show up positive. Read more

If I've taken 14 alpazolams in the past week and a half and I have a drug test in 12 days and I don't do anything else will I be ok for my test?

If I've taken 14 alpazolams in the past week and a half and I have a drug test in 12 days and I don't do anything else will I be ok for my test?

Odds are favorable: It depends on the sensitivity of the screening test. It also depends on your overall health, condition of your liver and whether or not other drugs are competing for metabolism. In general, the shorter acting benzodiazepines are cleared from the body within a week. Barring any additional use of Xanax, (alprazolam) the chances are good that the screen will be negative. Hope this helps. Read more

I smoked on. Saturday & have a drug test on Monday I didn't smoke a lot I would like three hits I hardly ever smoke will you be out of my system?

Does not add up: You asked the question today, Wednesday, how could you smoked on a Saturday that has not come yet. Even in a casual user cotinine may be detectable for 5 days, in urine.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age. Read more

How can I get a drug test? I don't do drugs altough my boyfriend asked me the other nigh if I do drugs I said he said a drug test will prove it thanks

Call pharmacist: In many countries, kits for testing urine for drugs may be purchased by ordinary folks. Phone a pharmacist in your community and he/she will tell you what's available. In a way, I'm glad your boyfrienid asked -- a man who dislikes drugs is probably a quality guy, it's a step toward trust, and nowadays a savvy one. I hope you are happy together. Read more

Hi I would like to know how can I go about getting a drug test? I am trying to prove to my boyfriend that I don't do drugs and he said if I did this it would prove it thanks in advance.

Agree w/colleagues: Only you know the answer to whether or not you do illicit drugs. A bigger issue you didn't ask about is whether getting the drug testing will really improve your relationship with your BF. In my opinion- doing the drug test doesn't PROVE anything other than having or not drugs in your system NOW. Do you believe THAT single result will create lasting trust in your BF? Think about it.
