    Default Drug testing

    Just wondering...if you have a prescription for pain meds and are being drug tested for a new job can or do they test the amount in your system?

    Depends on the company you are hiring on with and the job you are applying for. You are legal though with the prescription. It's still up to the company to decide if they want to check your actual toxicity level. Hope that helps. Good luck. God bless.
    I am not a dr. My statements are based on years of experience and related education. Consult with the professional of your choice regarding matters of concern.

    No, they dont check the amount, but, If it shows postive for any Norc (any amount), Big Corp will pass on you. Smaller Co. may consider hiring, but may reschedule retest after you 're off persc.

    Best way is to stay off for 4-7 days depending on the amount. Usual strip tests shows clean after about 4 days. Some lab tests which detects smaller amounts requires 7 days to show negative.

    If unsure, you can obtain a test kit for about $30 and test yourself prior. This way you make sure you ll test clean.
