... positive for a drug?
If I understand my doctor correctly, Viibyrd will not show up in a drug test. I asked him that question because I was filling out job apps and some required drug testing. What does show up is things like Xanax and various stimulants. I include a statement with my drug tests submitted to employers like "you may request a consult with me or my dr. to confirm I am on prescription drugs for a verified illness that will not interfere with my job productivity or performance." Normally, that satisfies the employer and they let it drop. I have also said my condition is "genetic in nature" and not my fault.
I think employers value honesty above all else. Rather than worry about testing positive, can you advise that you're taking a prescription med? This info must remain confidential with Human Resources. Certainly if it became an issue you have your prescription to show this is not a drug of abuse. Perhaps your question is more related to a privacy issue.
Keep us posted. Let us know if we can help further.
Now THERE'S something I never thought to ask about! I work as a truck driver and occasionally get drug-tested. I don't drive on the road anymore, but in our terminal's yard I do. A positive test on prescription drugs won't endanger my job, but they may feel it would interfere with my ability to operate the equipment and force me to change my job classification. I'll have to look into this one!
