im going to be taking a drug test in one week for advancement within the company i work for.a complete physical and drug screen is required.im taking buprenorphine(suboxone) as needed (1-2 doses weekly).i am also taking alprazolam 1mg as needed to help me get to sleep at night.i purchased the last of my suboxone a few months ago and it has lasted me until now.im wondering if everything is going to be cool with the lab regarding the date the script was filled.should i be upfront and provide them with the most information i can or should i lay low and wait and see what comes up?any experiences or helpful comments would be great.thanks!
The Bupenorphine will only show if they run a panel specifically for it.If they do run a panel for it, you prescription should be checked to see if you used it according to the directions, which says 1 to 2 doses per week, if I read this correctly. Most jobs don't check for bupenorphine, even most of the court systems don't. I agree with the above poster except for the 2 days on the benzo, it may show for longer than the 2 days. I have had it show for longer than that. Not trying to argue with anyone, just want people to know it can show up for longer.
absolutely still valid.if you have to go the pharmacy and get print outs. xanax stays in your system for 5-7 days.if you have a scrip for them also get the printouts for all the meds that may show up in your system.some human resources want to have a copy of your meds on file.ask befor you take the urine.a supervisor from h/r should know the protocols... pot is tuff unless you have a script for it.good luck...
Well if your screen went well maybe you can help me. I am pretty sure I will get hired on at a company in a couple days, and I will have to go take a UA that day. I have been prescribed adderall and klonopin since I was 18 and now I’m 36, so I have consistent records month to month listing my medical at pharmacy. However, the last time I filled my adderall was 6-7 months ago. In that 7 month period I never got a refill. There is still 20 or so pills in that bottle. I am concern with the validity of showing the UA lab my bottles and not accepting it valid proof that I take this medication. I just tried to go 7 months without taking any adderall, A. Because I was unemployed and couldn’t afford to pay the doctor visit and then fill my adderall which all together is roughly 250$, and now I will have the means to get back on a regular routine of taking my medications.
I need them to focus and taking one worked because I was able to ace my interview, and focus the task at hand. I just don’t know if all those pharmacy print outs and a bottle with 20 pills dated 6/2017 are credible enough to convey that I have and will be on this medication daily now that I can afford to get refills month to month with this new job. So if you or anyone know anything please let me know.
