How long will I show up positive for marijuana. I quit on november 6 got a drug test december 12. I'm 5"11 165 lbs please help?

It depends: How long you remain positive for marijuana depends on how frequently you use it. With daily use, thc can be detected in urine for 49-90 days. 5-6 times/week would be detectable for 33-48 days, etc. It can be found in hair follicles for 90 days or longer, period. ...Read more

If I took a drug test that showed I had a marijuana level of 111 would I be clean in seven days from the day I took the test and tested positive?

No: It depends on how often you use marijuana (thc). If it's only 1 time, your urine test may be positive up to 8 days or so. Urine remains positive for a longer time with frequency of use. For 2-4 times per month, your urine thc could be positive up to 3 weeks. For using 2-3 times/week, this becomes 23-35 days. With daily usage, it's 49-90 days. Hair remains positive for 90 days after using. ...Read more

I took metformin 500 mg and I was wondering how long after stopping that it was out of your system and could it cause a false positive drug test?

I took metformin 500 mg and I was wondering how long after stopping that it was out of your system and could it cause a false positive drug test?

Metformin 500: Metformin 500 is usually taken twice a day - out of your system every 12 hours.

I don't think it can cause a faulse positive test if you are monitoring your blood sugar.

If you think the metformin associated blood glucose values are too high or too low please contact your doctor. ...Read more

Is taking an old prescription (Vyvanse) legal? Could I be fired for a positive drug test, even if I have the prescription for it, though it is old?

Complicated: Yes, depending on the company's policies, you could be fired - even if the Rx was current. You'd have a good fight if it was, but you could still lose. Being out of date, your case would be very weak if they wanted to be tough. If you took it for the medical purpose, I feel bad for you but it was still a risky idea. If you took it for fun - it was more foolish. You can learn and hope for the best. ...Read more
