I have a job interview and have to have a hair follicle drug test. Will celexa and one Xanax (alprazolam) show up?

I have a job interview and have to have a hair follicle drug test. Will celexa and one Xanax (alprazolam) show up?

Probably not: Celexa may, if they were testing for it, but they usually only test for whatever "illicit" substances they list. One Xanax (alprazolam) would not usually come up in commercially available hair tests. If you mean one Xanax (alprazolam) per day, then it would - one Xanax (alprazolam) ever would not. ...Read more

I'm on vistaral, nuerontin, a muscle relaxer, buspar, and Topamax (topiramate) and celexa would any of those cause a false positive on a instant drug test for benzos?

I'm on vistaral, nuerontin, a muscle relaxer, buspar, and Topamax (topiramate) and celexa would any of those cause a false positive on a instant drug test for benzos?

Drug interactions: You are on 6 medications (don't know the name of the muscle relaxant) that have serious drug interactions. It's possible that the muscle relaxant may show up on a drug screen. See doctor without delay to review your meds and cut back what you're taking for safety reasons. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Female, 245 lbs, took 0.25 mg Xanax (alprazolam) 8 days ago. Have to take pre-employment drug test. Am I ok? Will it show up?

Female, 245 lbs, took 0.25 mg Xanax (alprazolam) 8 days ago. Have to take pre-employment drug test. Am I ok? Will it show up?

Probably not: If in fact you only took it once - it is short-acting and its metabolites are essentially gone in 3-5 days. Your weight doesn't really factor into it. However, if you are taking it by prescription, it should not matter unless you are applying for a safety-sensitive position (driver, police, fire etc.). If you are NOT prescribed it, you should NOT be taking it. ...Read more

If I took. 5 mg xanax (alprazolam) the day before my pre employment drug test and I hardly ever take medicines of any kind will it show up 14 hours after taken?

It may: Pre-employment drug screen is usually done on urine and benzodiazepines may be detected for up to a week. However, your employer may not require testing for this drug. If you have prescription for the medication, you should advise your employer of that. ...Read more

If I took 0.5mg of Xanax (alprazolam) 24hrs before a pre-employment drug test will it show up as positive I am a male 49 years old 6ft2in tall 210lbs and have not used Xanax (alprazolam) before

It may: Depending on what test they use. Xanax (alprazolam) and Klonopin are not metabolized into the usual molecule that drug screening kits are looking for (at least not in large amounts) - oxazepam. There are kits that look for it. If you have a prescription for xanax, (alprazolam) that is an iron clad defense unless it is a safety=sensitive job. If it was not prescribed, you are misusing (if not abusing) the drug. ...Read more

Can you tell me if on a pre employment drug test will hydrocodone (norco) and hydromorphone (dilaudid) show up as the same thing?

Can you tell me if on a pre employment drug test will hydrocodone (norco) and hydromorphone (dilaudid) show up as the same thing?

Yes: Hydrocodone is metabolized into hydromorphone (but not the other way around), so if you take a Norco, (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) it will generally show both hydrocodone and hydromorphone, as well as morphine and codeine (the final metabolites). ...Read more

I smoked weed 7 days ago and I never smoke weed will I pass a pre employment drug test?

Unknown;maybe: Many variables;power of the weed, your method of ingestion (a quick toke is different than a concentrated bong hit), suggest a non legal test on urine and see where you are. The conflict between federal and state law makes this hard, and wish I had a better answer. ...Read more

I recently moved n am afraid to fly so I took my sisters 5 mg Valium on mon have a pre employment drug test thurs will I pass what do I do I never use?

Be honest...: When you take a drug test, they will ask you to list the medications that you take and have taken. List the valium. It is likely to be detected in a urine drug test for 7-10 days and would be much harder to explain if you omit it on your medication list before the test. ...Read more

I took a pre-employment drug test on Fri afternoon, my last use of meth was 129 hrs before the test, what are my odds of passing the urine test?

I took a pre-employment drug test on Fri afternoon, my last use of meth was 129 hrs before the test, what are my odds of passing the urine test?

Good: Meth is generally detectable for about 4 days after last use. Now that you have abstained for 5 days, you yourself a favor and never do it again.
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.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

What to do if I failed a pre-employment dot drug test?

Don't understand?: If you failed the test, assuming it was interpreted by a medical review officer (MRO), am not sure you have any recourse, particularly if this was pre-employment. If you ARE an employee, you should find out what protections you have and if you can appeal the test. If you are a union member, your union rep should have information on how to contest it. If you are NOT already an employee, not much. ...Read more

I took a lortab on a sunday and forgot about an employment drug test I have on wednesday will it show up I only took one and do nottake them regularly?

Probably no worry: Some drug tests do not include synthetic narcotic drugs. If you have a valid prescription it won't matter anyhow because when reviewed it will be determined to be a negative report to the employer. ...Read more

I took two 50mg tablets of Diphenhydramine 17 hours before I had to take a pre-employment oral drug test. Is there a chance I might fail the drug test?

Dr. John Chiu Dr. Chiu

Unlikely: This would not be screened or confused with illegal drugs. However people often get drowsy from this relatively high dose. If you were to fail the test, it would be based on your performance and not the drug itself. ...Read more

If I take a medication not prescribed to me will it show up on a employment drug test?

If I take a medication not prescribed to me will it show up on a employment drug test?

Possibly: It depends on whether they are testing for it or not. Whether it's prescribed or not, if your employer doesn't allow you to take it due to its adversely affecting your job, you will still get pinched if it shows up on your test. Besides that, taking a medication "not prescribed" to you is rarely a good idea. ...Read more

What kind of drug test do most employers give pre-employment?

What kind of drug test do most employers give pre-employment?

Many actually don't: Big companies may require drug testing before employment, but current many are not doing it, yet. That being said, the trend is increasing use of drug test before employment. Usually test for: marijuana, narcotics (morphine, percocet, vicodin, Methadone etc.), hypnotics (xanax, klonopin, (clonazepam) valium), cocaine, pcp, lsd, alchol. Best advice: just don't do it. Be good. Be safe. Be employed. Good luck. ...Read more

ANS: I am not certain what the question is. Do they do analysis every day. How long does it take to do it. I would ask the lab how long it takes. It will depend on which test they do. ...Read more

Will suboxon show up as an opiate on a drug test for employment? I have to pee clean or I will not be hired!

Will suboxon show up as an opiate on a drug test for employment? I have to pee clean or I will not be hired!

Probably not.: It depends on the lab and how extensive of a drug screen. Routine drug screens do not pick up Suboxone because it is a synthetic opioid. However, if the employer pays for a more extensive drug screen than just routine and Suboxone is a drug they specifically test for, then it will be positive depending on the timing of your last dose. Suboxone is long-acting to prevent withdrawl symptoms. ...Read more
