The test shouldn't take long before you will have the results. ...Read more

How do you pass a urine nicotine test?

Not smoke!!: If you are asking how to "beat" the test, it would be unethical for any physician to give you advice on that. The way to pass ANY drug test is to NOT use that drug. Moreover, it is far more important to actually stop using tobacco products because they remain the number one preventible cause of death in the western world (and increasingly in developing nations). Stop BEFORE cancer, heart disease. ...Read more

Can nicotine free cigarettes be detected in a urine cotinine test? Any help appreciated!

No: If you are not using nicotine in the heating chamber, and you haven't smoked tobacco in the last week, your test should be negative. I would point out that the safety of the propellant in these e-cigs (propylene glycol), as well as flavorings and additives, have never been subjected to study, and we simply do not know their long-term safety/dangers. They are likely safer than smoking tobacco though ...Read more

How long is cotine in urine? I have used nicotine lozenges for the last 60 days and have a urine analysis for employment. Been well hydrated & active

Tell the truth?: I'm not a lawyer, but I suspect that it would be illegal discrimination to refuse employment on the basis of person who is in the midst of a successful smoking cessation program. Cotinine stays in the urine for at least several days; when it will clear is unpredictable. I'm simply glad you've made it this far & if this keeps you from this job, there will be a better one. ...Read more

My friend is an occasional smoker. She must pass a nicotine screening for employment. She had 1 cig. A week ago. Test is tmrw. Will she pass urine tes?

Yes, most likely: Unless a highly sensitive test is used, positive nicotine/cotinine tests in urine are only positive for 1-2 days after a single cigarette, and blood tests aren't really much more sensitive. Cotinine is usually completely out of the body in 3-5 days, even in heavier smokers, so it should be negative. If she only smokes occasionally, and she is a position to be tested, she really needs to stop. ...Read more

How long does it take for nicotine to leave your body (urine and blood stream) after you've stop smoking?

How long does it take for nicotine to leave your body (urine and blood stream) after you've stop smoking?

It varies: Nicotine metabolism is complex. Most nicotine is metabolized in the body to co-nicotine, and this is what is tested for. Nictotine is 1/2 gone after 2 hours, co-nicotine about 20. It takes about 5 1/2 lives for a drug to be "97% gone". 10 half lives for 99.9% another source says a urine test can be positive 7 to 20 days after smoking. ...Read more

Hi if I smoked a electronic cigarette on thursday and didn't inhale and have to take a 24 hr urine test today will they see nicotine in my urine?

Possibly: If screened, any even passive exposure can be assayed though less likely. Most urine drug screens are for illicit (cocaine, thc, etc) &/or frequently abused substances (bzd, amphetamines, etc). Essentially, they are grouped together, legally prescribable or not -- all cause impairment. The dose of nicotine needed for impairment would likely be fatal since it is so potently toxic. ...Read more
