How far does the testing for a hair follicle and nail drug test go back? I am getting conflicting answers on both tests. I have been told 90-120 days or longer for hair follicle depending on length of hair and up to 1 1/2-2 1/2 years for nail testing.

Varies

Urine_drug_screen
the hair testing numbers are about right, with hair growing about 1/2 inch per month, and the average length of hair tested being 1 1/2 inches, which is about 90 days. Nails give 4-6 months at usual lengths. If you never cut them, or have very very long nails, you could get 1-2 years, but that is not common.

How long does adipex show up in a hair follicle test?

Drug Screening HAIR

It stays until the hair is cut past the length it was on the day you used it last. It does not 'dissipate' out of the hair.

If i took 30 mg of adderall and take a hair follicle test in two months, will the adderall be comepletely out of my system by then?

Maybe.

Follicle
If the lab just tests the growing end of the hair follicle, amphetamine may be present up to 90 days. Stimulants are "out of your system" at the end of each day, but they get incorporated into hair and stay there even after you stop taking the medication. Detection in hair then depends on how quickly your hair grows--and which part of it they test.

86 days clean. Will I pass hair follicle test? Also how long till you receive results?

Hard to say

Follicle
Typically, a hair test goes back 90 days, but it depends on how fast your hair grows. They are looking at 1 1/2 inches of hair, closest to the scalp. Incidentally, you should not avoid it by shaving your head. They would just use some other hair. And if they do, it is pretty obvious that you are trying to hide something.

Have question about a hair follicle test?

Ask away!

Follicle
Not sure what you are asking. Hair follicles can be examined by doing a scalp biopsy. There is also a test called a "hair pull" or "trichogram" to help evaluate hair loss. A dermatologist may use either or both of these (or none) to help evaluate problems with the hair. If you have a specific question then perhaps you could submit it separately.
