i have never had one. can anyone tell me what all they pick up, how far back can they pick up on drugs and can they detect Oxycontin?
They probably chose that method as an easy and quick test, and it doesn't involve having to deal with privacy issues, shy bladders, etc. Oxy and other meds should show up within 3 days of their use, depending on how fast someone's metabolism is, how much they took and for how long. Always bring your RX bottle with you to the tests and any discussion of the results. Pot will test for 2 to 6 weeks, depending on the usage, and how thick the fat layers are in a person's body. Tranquilizers should be out in 3 days, but can stay for several weeks if the person uses many per day and has a slow metabolism. Some drug tests will show someone positive for a week after they took something that ordinarily would be out in three days, like the ones they use in a rehab clinic. If you test positive for something you KNOW you didn't take, ask to have your result mailed to a lab, offer blood or hair and know your rights within the company about taking a second test or appealing the results before you test.
