I don't smoke but my boyfriend smoke marijuana so if I swollow his semen would it show up when I take a drug test for my job?

Good question: My guess is that the level of thc in the semen would probably be very small, if detectable at all. You might be more likely to test positive from inhaling second hand smoke when he smokes pot near you. ...Read more

If I take 30 mL of NyQuil the day before my 5 panel drug test, could it give a false negative on the test?

False neg for what?: Most people are not usually concerned about false negative results. The exception being the people who are prescribed a medication and rather than taking it, are selling it on the street.
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.

I just took 60ml of NyQuil. I'm very nervous it's going to show up on my urine drug test tomorrow by 2pm. Do I get another test if I fail?

Not sure: Not sure why you need a drug test but this only has dextromethorphan, acetaminophen, and doxylamine. These are not restricted products and while they may be in urine should not show any red flags that I am aware of. It depends on why you are having the test as to whether you get another. Best wishes. ...Read more

I have a drug test for a new job this week and have been taking sudafed and a friend said I may fail the drug test because of it, is this true?

Not likely, but: Normally when a drug screening test is administered they ask you to list all medications that you are currently taking. This is so that if they do find a positive, they can take extra steps to verify that whatever caused the positive isn't something you listed. Don't take it between now and the test if you're worried - by 48 hrs, it should not show up anyway. Best! ...Read more

I take Xanax (alprazolam) prn (prescribed) I have to do urine drug test for hospital job, I took one 1 pill last week will they not hire me due to Xanax (alprazolam) pill?

Xanax (alprazolam): For any test like this, you should inform the lab and your potential employers that you take prescribed xanax (alprazolam). Provide them a copy of your physician's prescription or a note from him/her. Then any potential "positive" drug test for xanax (alprazolam) will be explained. It is possible, as dr. Altman suggests, that the xanax (alprazolam) you took last week will be gone by now -- but I suggest disclosure regardless. ...Read more

Hair drug test coming up for a job, what to expect?

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

I have a drug test for a job coming up and I've smoked small amounts up until 3 week ago, will I still pass?

Maybe: It depends what you have smoked marijuana, cocaine, or a variety of other substances each have a different half-life (length of time they stay in the body), and so it will affect the results. Drug screens are often urine, but if they are blood or hair, you can have a different result too. Marijuana stays in hair for months! ...Read more

I did half a methadone on Saturday at a party. I have never done one before ever. I have a drug test for a job Friday. That will be Six days will it be put of my system by then?

I did half a methadone on Saturday at a party. I have never done one before ever. I have a drug test for a job Friday. That will be Six days will it be put of my system by then?

It depends on you.: Methadone has a long half life. It's fat soluble and elimination factors can vary based on genetics, other medications taken, and body habitus, to name a few. The half-life measures the amount of time it takes to eliminate half the amount ingested. Methadone 1/2 life varies from 4 hrs to as high as 190 hrs. Multiply times 5 (20 hrs (<1 day)to 950 hrs (39.5 days)). Test sensitivities vary, also ...Read more

Not generally: Most employers test for drugs of abuse, and nyquil, outside of a little alcohol, does not have any of the drugs they would be testing for (usually amphetamines, pcp, marijuana, opioids, benzodiazepines, cocaine). Also, they usually ask you to fill out paperwork on what your medications are, so you should just list the nyquil. ...Read more

I was wondering how far a hair follicle drug test goes back. Why I was asking was because of a job, someone said they go back 6 months for this job?

I was wondering how far a hair follicle drug test goes back. Why I was asking was because of a job, someone said they go back 6 months for this job?

About right: Depends on the length of the hair, but the average size hair will go back about 6 months. There is variability in hair growth, and depending on whether someone is fair-skinned or dark, the hair may retain certain drugs differently. But in general, its about 6 months worth. The larger question is whether an employer has any right to determine what someone does during off-time not working. ...Read more
