Can I get a positive hair drug screen for having sex with someone that use cocaine?

Not likely: You not likely to get a positive hair drug test from having sex with a cocaine user, however, there are other problems you are exposing yourself to by your choice of sex partner. You need to get tested for hepatitis, HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. You should seriously consider if you should continue this sexual relation. 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.

Unlikely, but: it depends on several factors. Hair follicle drug screens are affected by: 1. time between consumption and hair collection, 2. type of hair collected (from scalp or body, as growth rates differ), 3. type of test -- the "standard or 5-panel" test generally does not include a test for alcohol. Consuming only "one shot" or 1-2 ounces of hard alcohol probably is not enough to cause a positive result ...Read more

I started a new job and must complete a hair follicle drug screen. Does synergse detox precision hair cleanse work?

I started a new job and must complete a hair follicle drug screen. Does synergse detox precision hair cleanse work?

Not likely: If you've been using drugs in the last few months, it can be detected in hair exam. None of the marketed products that supposedly cleanse your system of drug residue are guaranteed to fool such lab testing. This at least gives you new incentive to stop using drugs which can harm your health anyway. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Could i get a saliva urine or hair test when i get a drug screen for cvs as a supervisor on the retail part?

Don't know: Many large pharmacy chains will drug test either all employees, or employees in the pharmacy part of the store, especially supervisors. Walgreens does testing for supervisors at time of hire, and then randomly therafter. I cannot find anything published about CVS, but apparently their application says that drug testing is part of the process. Doesn't say anything about what is tested. ...Read more

Will using zdot hair cleanser work in passing a hair drug screening test for meth used meth onlly 3 times in the last two months?

Will using zdot hair cleanser work in passing a hair drug screening test for meth used meth onlly 3 times in the last two months?

Doubt it: Zdot is an expensive shampoo ($34.95 for one use, and that's "guaranteed" for only 24 hours because your body oils will re-contaminate the hair, supposedly.) once you've used meth, the drug could be in your hair for 3 months. If using at all, it's very dangerous and very addictive. Please get help for your drug use. http://www.crystalmeth.org/cma-meeting-directory.html. ...Read more
