I took a SAP 5 urine drug test. Will nicotine show up on the test? How long will it take to receive the results?

I took a SAP 5 urine drug test. Will nicotine show up on the test? How long will it take to receive the results?

No: Nicotine isn't tested for on the five panel test, but are you concerned about nicotine? I take it, you have a DOT safety sensitive job. You might not be allowed to smoke at work, but you didn't violate for nicotine. You violated for another substance, if you have already been referred to a SAP-Substance Abuse Professional. The test shouldn't take long before you will have the results.

Have a pre-employment test for nicotine coming up, how long is nicotine detectable in blood and urine and does the detox stuff they sell work?

Have a pre-employment test for nicotine coming up, how long is nicotine detectable in blood and urine and does the detox stuff they sell work?

2-4 days: Not sure about blood but nicotine is usually tested by a urine test for cotinine, a metabolite of nicotine that stays in your body for 2-4 days after your last cigarette. I would not rely on the "detox stuff."stopping smoking is probably the best thing you can do for your health. The first days are the hardest, so if you stop for 4 days you should take the opportunity to stop for good. See comment:.

How long is nicotine in urine?

3-4 days: Generally no more than 2-3 days, on rare occasions in some people at much as 5 days. Depends on how much you smoke and the amount of nicotine in each cigarette, and how deeply you inhale and hold it in, among many other variables. The occasional smoker may only be positive for a day or less. Depends also on what kind of test they are using and its level of sensitivity in detecting cotinine.

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.

I have nicotine test it will b two weeks since last cig. Will I pass? Its a urine test

Yes: Two weeks is sufficient time for nicotine and its metabolite cotinine to clear out of your system, as long as you avoid exposure to all nicotine, including gum or patches and passive smoke. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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.

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
