Dear 123hlp123:

Your topical lidocaine jelly is not likely to make your fiance fail his drug test for methadone.

I am sorry to hear that he is being incarcerated due to a failed drug test. However, before the testing, they usually will ask you what medications you are currently taking, so they can take that into account with the results. Please make sure that they have a complete list of his current medications, including prescription and over-the-counter meds, vitamins and herbal supplement.

Good luck and do take care.
