Common Questions and Answers about Can second hand smoke make you fail a drug test


Avatar f tn Its highly unlikely thst you would fail a drug test from second hand smoke. They have high cut off levels so they dont have false positives. But I would still suggest not to be around it often. Especially in a closed in area likr a car with the windows up. Justmake sure if your forced to be around it thst the area is well ventilated. And try and go to another room if possible.. or just ask him to quit.
535089 tn?1400677119 A small fraction of the population excrete large amounts of certain enzymes in their urine which can produce a positive drug test. Dr. John Morgan of the Dept. of Pharmacology of New York City University writes: "A false positive test could occur in some individuals because they excrete unusually large amounts of endogenons lysozyme or malate dehydrogenase." Dr. Morgan judges that natural enzyme interference may run as high as 10% of positive samples. Black Skin. This is not a joke!
535089 tn?1400677119 And sufficient second-hand smoke exposure can also cause failure of standard urine drug tests. You could fail both a primary and secondary test, with no recourse other than saying that it was someone else. It’s just not worth the risk. So if you have been exposed to illegal drugs, your best insurance for a clean drug test is to stop using them immediately. And not just temporarily—permanently.
Avatar f tn P ) And yes, just a small distracting thought sometimes snowballs and starts to get you feeling all anxious again. I'm also off the caffeine. I've had it for about a month now and am learning to live with it but am hopeful that it will go away some time soon. And yes, the more you speak about it to friends and family the better you feel about it.
401095 tn?1351395370 Some drug testing companies will either have a doctor (or other medical professional) personally interview those who fail a drug test to determine if there was a potential false positive. If you do receive a failing grade (actually referred to as a “positive” on your drug test—this is one test you do NOT want a positive—you want all negatives) on your drug test, ask to be retested with a confirmation or secondary test.
Avatar n tn It is also my suggestion that every time you are required to take a drug test you have your own test repeated that day by a trusted authority. It seems these clinic and PMP have all the rights and the patients are always the liars. What's wrong with this picture?? I am mad about the injustices CP Suffers are enduring. Isn't the pain injustice enough??? Ok, I'm through with my rant.
Avatar f tn If you have the script in hand I don't think they can stop you from filling it. I think they won't give you any more if your urine test was dirty. at your next appt you might have some explaining to do.
Avatar n tn Insurance companies refusing to approve surgeries cause you smoke. I call BS. on their reasoning, they want you to quit smoking for six weeks and take a test.
Avatar f tn Now come on, in order to be able to get benefits you have to be practically dead and now you gotta come up with money for a drug test? I understand what they want to have happen but I seriously think its gonna backfire big time! And if I read it right they have to be clean for a year before getting any kind of assistance. I wonder what old Rick Scott is getting outta this deal! Somethings doesnt feel right with this one. LOL, Florida would like to see this guy run out on a rail! What a loser.
Avatar n tn Its probably because of the fact that his mom is a drug addict. Not nesessarily because he inhales second hand smoke from the pot. Or maybe both. Sounds like a behavioral issue.

You can see a short but informative video about Dr. Waismann’s work by following this link Since the original procedure was used on addicted soldiers in Israeli army, it has been gradually perfected by new medications that have since been approved by FDA to help control the effects of the withdrawal.
1461073 tn?1308681148 Some legal, some not perhaps. If you smoke pot, does that make you a bad person? No, not even close in my eyes. If you get caught smoking pot, are there legal ramifications? Damn right there are and everyone knows what they are. My deal is, if the rules are laid out in front of you, and it is clearly stated that while on government assistance, if you are found to be under the influence of narcotics, you will completely jeopardize any assistance in the future.
Avatar f tn all you had to do was inform me in a civil manner...i never posted anything bad or offence..if you want you can ask med help to remove them..i dont mind..
Avatar m tn well i guess its kinda like second hand smoke but not really, but its hard to believe you just smoke once a day. i live around smokers and they smoke like every 15 mins.
544292 tn?1268886268 I want my life back. There was a full second where I wanted to say YES!!! Not a split second. A complete second.

Avatar f tn I think that's all you can do, at this point. Your husband's death wasn't a good thing, but you can try to make something good come from it. That is a positive response to a terrible loss.

Avatar n tn I dont think the act of masturbating is a sin, some say its the fantasy that goes with it, gee it must be hard not to have a fantasy while doing it, ever tried walking past a pretty girl in a mini skirt, crikey we are all rotten sinners, we would not be human if we didnt have a sneaky look, if the churches think people are that tough they had better take a reality check.
Avatar m tn Exercise does seem to make a lot of sense. It's as if you reach a certain level of fitness and the body knows it has to maintain that level as much as possible. If you do nothing, and your heart is fine at rest, then perhaps this is the key to not developing collaterals. I had been working in the building trade for a few years when I had to have my first stent and collaterals were noticed.
464044 tn?1343705643 Mad that no one's returning my calls, my ex boyfriend left me alone, my family hasn't even checked on me. I pull out a razor blade. Wondering if I can do it. Feeling sorry for myself. I try cutting, drew a little blood, it hurt like hell. So I called my ex and told him to come pick me up. Thank God, he was right over. I ride around with him for the next three hours, crying and arguing, calling my mom, the worker, pissed. Finally 3:00 rolls around. Time for the drug test.
Avatar m tn You should ask your doctor if you can drop back to 50 mcg for a few weeks, and even though you may go a bit hypo, you will give your body a chance to get used to the med, then go up by no more than 25 mcg at a time. I feel better than ever since I've been on it (currently at 88 mcg and holding), and I'd sure like to see you give it another try.
Avatar n tn What do you mean when you say that a positive blood test doesn't mean a successful pregnancy? My blood test came back positve on Aug. 8 with a HCG level of 302 then I had to go back on Aug. 10 and my HCG was 708. I took another one yesterday but my doc hasn't called me back with the results. So, should I still be worried???? mrsstr- Good luck to you and I hope that your bpt come back positive.
1323357 tn?1274826939 Normally, the safe feeling in the chest after a shock will reverse the change in brain chemistry , lowering adrenaline and raising dopamine, but when you are worrying about the DP, you cannot feel safe. DP can occur as a result of a trauma. In this case, as well as the above, the brain is taking time out to rest itself ? you have no control over this the more you try , the more tired your brain gets and it can't feel the safe feeling it needs.

Avatar n tn Perhaps sleep apneia? It can cause a lot of the symptoms you have described. I know this because my brother-in-law suffered from it. I wish you all the best.
