My vitamins say they contain polyvinyl alcohol. Will this make a drug test positive for alcohol?

My vitamins say they contain polyvinyl alcohol. Will this make a drug test positive for alcohol?

No, however...: No, this chemical does not have any real relationship to the type of alcohol we drink and will not raise your alcohol level one bit. However, while considered non-toxic, I do not think it's wise to take a vitamin with synthetic chemicals like this. It is probably a sign that this is not the best quality vitamin; there are many better choices. See http://tinyurl. Com/mzrkbx8

Can etomidate and succinylcholine show up as a positive alcohol drug test?

Can etomidate and succinylcholine show up as a positive alcohol drug test?

Maybe: I am not aware of this. Etomidate comes in a 35% solution with propylene glycol which might give a false positive depending on the assay method, but this would not last long, would not likely be high and there would not likely be any concern of etoh intake around the time of etomidate or succ use.

What to do if I have a drug test monday I was planning on drinking 6-8 shots how long will the alcohol stay in my system?

I am more concerned: With your binge drinking, and the damage it will do to your liver, your stomach, your heart and to your LIFE than I am with your employment test. Most drug-testing does not involve alcohol, unless the person is known to have an alcohol problem and is required to remain alcohol free. If this is the case, YOU HAVE A BIG PROBLEM. There are tests now for alcohol that can detect it for many days.

Can alcohol really stay in your system for three days and can a drug test detect alcohol that far back?

Doubt it: This may be disinformation intended to trouble you. Alcohol is burned by the body with zero-order kinetics -- steady rate. Perhaps there is a misunderstanding. If you are on an abstinence program, I do hope that you'll comply because you want to -- for the sake of those you love rather than your own sake.
