Just passed nclex and can I become a LPN if im taking Lyrica (pregabalin) and amiptriptyline in NY. Will I pass urine screen. Should I ween off these drugs?

Depends on what they: are testing for. Phentermine is not an amphetamine and doesn't usually cause false positives in screening tests, and if the screening test IS positive, the confirmatory test will be negative. Although it is a prescription drug, it is not included on testing panels that I know of. Again, depends on how sophisticated the tests they are doing. Consider seeing a counselor - ? drug problem. ...Read more
