On the ninth day I had a pre-employment drug test. I took maybe 2 tablespoons of the stuff and have never used an opiate in my life... I am also clean from other drugs other than alcohol. I am in my mid twenties, resistance train daily, and have a fast metabolism. I despise the use of opiates, but had a nasty, nasty cough. I don't know how people use this stuff for recreation. The itching made drove me crazy.
Why worry about this, unless the medication was not prescribed to you, just tell the labcorp that you took the medication for your nasty-nasty cough, then they are aware that it may be present on the drug screen.
You really have no issue or problem. Opiates can show up to a thirty day period, but you really do not have any issues with two tablespoons of cough syrup.
Good luck, stay positive, and healthy!!!
