Not the best: At best, online tests for depression are only useful for screening depressive symptoms...And that is if you happen to stumble across a well researched one. The best way to determine if you have depression is to visit with a psychologist or psychiatrist since there are different types of depression, which have different causes, and require different treatments. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not sure of question: How useful are home tests for what? If you are asking about whether the home tests are useful in seeing if illegal substances are present in your urine, i wouldn't bet my job on it. Many employers use tests that are much more sensitive than most of the "home tests" in determining presence of banned/illegal substances. Better you stop using than trying to avoid detection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Don't self-diagnose: You need to see a professional to see if you think you may have schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a major life-long illness, requiring on-going treatment with big-time medications. Please take better care of yourself. Don't use an online test for something so potentially serious. Call your local community mental health center and ask how they can help you afford a legitimate evaluation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was looking for labs online after an appt & found for last appt summary a code listed for 'long term drug user'.. am baffled. Why? Am not a druggie.
Ask: Request an explanation. A mistaken diagnosis can follow you indefinitely. You've got a history of depression and somebody may have jumped to a conclusion about you. With the emphasis on "identifying possible drug users" and the goofy idea that "if you say you are not an addict, then you are", this may be a propagated error. Set the record straight with your physician. It's your basic right. ...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

I am prescribed naproxen and according to online sources it can make false positive for thc on drug tests, is this true?
Many: but that is only on the screening test, and not on confirmatory tests, which can accurately tell the difference between amphetamine salts and their metabolites and medications such as phenylephrine, pseudoephedrine, ephredrine, phenylproponolamine and other stimulant products used as decongestants. Weight loss, asthma and cold products all may contain substances which cause false positives. ...Read more
None: There is no prescription medication that will give a false positive for cannabis. The prescription medication Marinol is the only prescription medication that would give a positive result for THC on a urine test, and that is not a "false" positive, it contains THC. Medical marijuana will also give a positive on a urine drug screen, but again, not a "false" positive. ...Read more

They CAN do anything: Whether it's ethical is another story, and whether it is legal depends on what state you are in. Doctors do many tests without explaining the details to their patients, but those tests don't generally have the legal potential to cause harm as drug testing does. Some states (but not California, as far as I know) DO require testing of pregnant women, typically at childbirth. ...Read more
What test is used to test soley for neurontin (gabapentin)? I recently took a ten panel urine drug screen, can they pull out of that 10 panel screen? Please help
Doubt it: Nobody, as far as i know, is testing for neurontin (gabapentin), (gabapentin) and there are no test kits designed for neurontin (gabapentin). If you are prescribed the drug, you have a right to take it. If you aren't, it is not a controlled substance. If you are using Neurontin (gabapentin) without a prescription, you need to talk to your doctor about a prescription for it. The Klonopin and percocet, however, will likely show up. ...Read more
