You probably can't: Whatever happens, help him stay clean. Cannabis has little to recommend it and the other illegal drugs are horrible for the user and those who love him/her. Water-loading is of little help and nothing else will affect tomorrow's test. We can spot adulterants. I hope that your upcoming marriage is a happy one, and free of the horrors of drug abuse. ...Read more
Drug free: How about not doing drugs?Get a more detailed answer ›
Stop using: Depends on your body, the substance you use, the amount you use daily and possibly your liver and kidney function, and the type of drug test (whether urine, blood, sweat, saliva or hair).

Don't understand?: "not positive" and "not negative" can mean what is called an "indeterminate" test, which can mean that the test was just at the cut-off that the test uses for a positive - the cut-off for thc is (say) 50 ng/ml and the test comes out 48 ng/ml, that particular test may give a signal that it is indeterminate. It may also indicate interfering substances, water loading or other things. ...Read more

Unlikely: If it is a urine test and you are not a habitual user. I assume you are referring to marijuana. Thc will be detectable for about 13 days in the urine for a recreational one time use. If there is chronic use, there have been reported positive tests for as long as 90 days from last use. If it is a hair test though, it will be detected until you cut the hair from the exposure time. ...Read more
What do you advise if I smoked for the first time in 11 months, and have a drug test in 16 days. Am I okay for this test?
Are you OK?:

Your higher power, your willingness to get well, your physician, your councillor, your program gives you a fighting chance. Your truth and your honesty strengthens the glue between you and your surrender.
No man, you are not ok. ...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.

Depends: It depends upon the TESTER. They will usually dictate to the lab exactly WHAT drugs to look for. Anticonvulsants don't really make it into the list of No-No drugs that most employers don't want to see such as marijuana, cocaine, opiates, valium, etc. They are usually NOT screened for in routine testing for generic drug tests requested by courts or employers. ...Read more
It will not...: Attempting to foil a drug screen will just add misery for you--your employer or whoever is requesting the drug screen will see you not just a dope but also a liar (trying to hide/sabotage your drug test). So, it is better to come clean. If you have a problem, ask for help and you will get more respect that way. Be good. Be sober. Be drug-free. Be respected. Good luck. ...Read more
