Can a lab test tell if a positive cocaine test is illicit drugs or prescription drugs?

Can a lab test tell if a positive cocaine test is illicit drugs or prescription drugs?

If confirmed, then..: If a screening test shows cocaine, and is confirmed cocaine, then there was cocaine in the sample that was tested... unless it was a rare false positive. Rare to be a false positive because both the screening and confirmation tests match one another. Prescription drugs do not cause cocaine positives, unless a doctor prescribed or used cocaine on the patient (I don't think doctors do that anymore). ...Read more

Over the last 5 days, my eye has hemorrhaged multiple times. It appears like a puffy little balloon encircling my iris. How can I get this to stop?

Over the last 5 days, my eye has hemorrhaged multiple times. It appears like a puffy little balloon encircling my iris. How can I get this to stop?

Probably not repeat: The space in which hemorrhage spreads on the front of the eye is narrow and the bleeding from one event over several days or more will spread over a very wide area looking like a rebleed but usually is the spread of a first and only bleed. This will resorb and your eye should go back to normal. You need to seen an ophthalmologist only if the eye hurts or the vision changes. ...Read more
