Drug testing: Drug testing is not routine with all births, but may be done if any suspicion of a drug exposure is present. If I look, I can prove drug exposure & type back as early as 20 wks. In my state, proof of exposure would sent the kid to foster care until the issues are sorted out. ...Read more
NonDept of Transport: A DOT drug test is a drug test the Department of Transportation (DOT) requires for businesses in the business of transportation. Businesses not regulated by the DOT can pick and choose which substances they check for (a non-DOT drug test). ...Read more
"must take?": Outside of criminal justice issues (people on probation or parole), there aren't any times where you must take the test. Some employers require drug testing before hiring, or while employed either on a random basis or if there are work-related problems, but you have the choice of working there or not. Drug testing is sometimes done in schools as well, or for child protective services etc. ...Read more
No basis for concern: Nothing in dayquil would be part of a standard urine drug screen. There is also nothing in dayquil that is of concern if it were detected. Decongestant phenylephrine has replaced pseudoephedrine, which was sometimes abused or used to make other abusable drugs. Nothing in dayquil to worry about now. ...Read more
Yes, usually: Ativan/lorazepam is a benzodiazepine which is typically part of a standard Urine Drug Screen/UDS. The screening would be positive and then a confirmatory test would reveal the medication. If you are prescribed the medication there should not be an issue. If not, I recommend you get help by seeing a healthcare provider. Good luck! ...Read more
No: Some people think because it has "caine" in it that it could show up as cocaine, but it is a completely different chemical with no overlap with any drugs of abuse. Test kits do not test for it, and confirmatory tests like gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy will determine exactly what it is if there is any question on the screening tests. ...Read more
Kratom: Kratom will not make you fail any standard drug test. Of its 40+ active alkaloids, one has activity which activates an opioid receptor. However, Kratom will not show up as an opioid on a standard UDS. It CAN be ordered as an add-on, specifically looking for mirtagynine or its metabolite. This is an add-on test, and at extra cost. It would not be looked for often. ...Read more
No: It does not contain any of the usual stimulants that can give false positives for amphetamines. However, even when there is a false positive, that should not be a "fail" on a drug test since ALL positives on screening tests need to be confirmed with more sophisticated testing like gas chromatography/mass spectrography or similar tests. If they don't do this, you may have legal recourse to dispute. ...Read more
Many things possible: That would be like asking, "The lady next to me on the subway left her purse. Can I keep the money?" or "That new girl at the party passed out drunk. Can I have sex with her before she wakes up?" Many things are possible in life, including cheating on tests. The question is about whether one's actions are moral and ethical, vs bad and criminal. ...Read more
It depends,,: It depends on what you're being tested for and how much benedryl you took. Apparently it may cause a false positive result for Methadone in some urine drug screens using competitive binding immunoassays, and if too much is taken, it can cause blurry vision, photophobia, heart failure, and death, but a lot has to be taken. Otherwise, there should not be much of a problem. Good luck. ...Read more
