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
Drug test: Probably not, since most likely won't be accurate and outside urines are usually never accepted Also it really depends on what facility is doing the testing and also what drugs are being tested for. Usually drug screens are very supervised and depending on the company doing it, might have to be observed by another person to avoid any illegal tampering of the urine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had a drug test come back positive (swab) for heroine. Can A hair follicle test prove that i have been clean of any substances?
Not necessarily: The only SPECIFIC test for heroin is a test for its metabolite 6-monoacetylmorphine or 6MAM. I am not sure whether this is available in swab form, but the first thing with ANY positive test on a screening test, such as a urine drug screen or oral fluid swab is to do the confirmatory test. If they have not done that, they are not following procedure. There also needs to be chain-of-custody on it. ...Read more

However, women in renal failure may have elevated HCG levels, and dialysis does not fully clear them from the blood. In addition, renal failure elevationsof fsh and lh can also cross react with hcg. ...Read more
Is it possible to get a false negative for marijuana on a doctors office drug test? At home drug test shows positive
Possible: Any test can give a false positive or false negative result. If you do weed, you know the true state and do not need to test. 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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Would a pregnancy test be positive on a urine test 14 days from the day I had sex? Is it possible for a urine test to be pos 11 days from day of sex?
Taking a long hair?: I will assume you have hair on your head, where they would take one of average length, including the follicle. Hair grows at about 1.5-2 inches per month, so if your average hair is 8 inches long, they can go back 4-6 months in time. Many doctors in my field do not believe that the science proving accuracy of hair testing is really ready for prime time, but they have withstood court challenges. ...Read more
Patience.: A blood test isn't needed. There's no need to rush. A urine pregnancy test done correctly gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and therefore lead to a repeat test. If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
If I used marijuana less than a month ago and I'm using a detox drink for a urine drug test and my menstrual cycle is on will my test be positive?
Maybe: Marijuana stays in your hair follicles for far longer then the kidneys rate of excretion. In other words, your urine test may or may not be positive for marijuana depending on how long your body needs to excrete THC(marijuana) products. Your menstrual period has nothing to do with the rate of kidney excretion. ...Read more

If I have a positive Quest Diagnostics blood test for a food allergy, could a skin test give a stronger confirmation? So many positives for foods!
Blood tests: for food allergies are somewhat unreliable - as there are many problems with cross reactivities on the assays. Unless you have had a particular event like you were unable to breathe or throat swelling after eating a particular food and are sure there was nothing else causing it- then these results may not be clinically important. Pollen/ and environmental allergy testing is much more reliable. ...Read more
