I got a pre-employment drug screening today and they said they found something. The only thing I've taken in the last few weeks were these. Would any of these make me fail a drug test? Help. I really need this job.
Last few weeks:
Acetaminophen 325/butal 50/caff 40mg tab
Naproxen 500mg tab
and over the counter Excedrin
Do you have a prescription for the Cyclobenzaprine? I would look for it and be ready to share it with your potential employer. Also, I would ask them what they found. Are you sure there isn't something you are leaving out? As long as you have a prescription for it you should be safe. It's illegal for them to discriminate against a legal medication that is prescribed by a doctor.
I do have prescriptions for all of it. On the phone they asked what I was taking and I rambled off some of them like flexeril and motrin and they interrupted me. They ask if I was taking any anti-depressants. But they never said what they were looking for specifically.
They aren't discriminating. They asked for a list of prescriptions from my doctor so they can approve my test.
The Acetaminophen/Butal/Caffeine is called Fiorocet and is considered a Narcotic. A prescription is needed for this and if you have one, you should be alright if you were up front with the employer and told them that you were taking it.
I am in the military. I took a drug test last week. It came back positive for THC. I don't not smoke. Yes, I do have friends I spend majority of my time with that do smoke. I current take Naproxen 500MG two or three times a day (depending on pain) and Percocet (OR SUB)--5MG / 325MG. I have been taking Naproxen for almost two months and Percocet for about 2 weeks. Could it be a false positive?
