I recently had a physical and drug screen for a job I am accepting. My blood pressure was 126/89. I was very nervous about this drug test and physical, I am really wanting this job. I know i will pass the drug test, but it was a situation i hadn't been

I recently had a physical and drug screen for a job I am accepting.  My blood pressure was 126/89. I was very nervous about this drug test and physical, I am really wanting this job.  I know i will pass the drug test, but it was a situation i hadn't been

I : I would suggest you use this information as data only, and not get too concerned. Your stated vitals suggest you are a very low-risk candidate for cardiovascular disease, meaning that your goal BP should be 135/85 or less at *rest* -- as in, not when you're at a new doctor's office, getting a drug test and physical for a new job. If your pressure didn't go up when you stand up or are active, your brain and muscles wouldn't get the oxygen they need and you'd get dizzy, maybe even pass out. Blood pressure changes almost from second to second! we only see the one set of numbers the standard cuff can read, so it's hard to remember just how much it bounces around. I usually recommend that my patients track their own blood pressure either at a grocery store pharmacy, their local fire house (or get your own cuff) and test at *random* times, maybe 2-3 times in a week and see what your average numbers look like. It'd be a good idea to establish your own pcp if you can so you can discuss a plan for following this as time goes by since things can change. However, from what you've presented here, it's unlikely you have a blood pressure problem at this time. Good luck with the new job! ...Read more

Will Azo help with a drug screen?

Will Azo help with a drug screen?

It will not...: Attempting to foil a drug screen will just add misery for you--your employer or whoever is requesting the drug screen will see you not just a dope but also a liar (trying to hide/sabotage your drug test). So, it is better to come clean. If you have a problem, ask for help and you will get more respect that way. Be good. Be sober. Be drug-free. Be respected. Good luck. ...Read more
