    Default Somewhat urgent...(drug test for job in a hour)

    I have a drug test for a job here in about an hour or so,I have xanax and vicodin in my system (I do have a current prescription for both). Should I be worried??.

    Make sure you tell them about the prescription when you take the test.

    Yes, a basic urine drug screen analyzes for Opiates, Cocaine, THC, Amphetamines, Benzodiazepines, PCP, Propoxyphene, Alcohol, Barbiturates, Methadone, and Cotinine.

    So, if you are on Xanax (a benzo) and Vicodin (an opiate), you should screen positive for those...but if you have valid prescriptions, then no worries.

    Ok,Im done.Got my job.

    Tested positive for amphetamines,never done those in my life.

    They sent me to their doctor,took a urine test and tested positive for opiates.But had my valid prescription,so it was all good.

    No amphetamines showed up in the test the doctor gave me.Floyd Landis anyone?.

    Amphetamines include Amphetamine, Methamphetamine, Paramethoxyamphetamine (PMA), Ecstasy (MDMA), Ephedrine, and Pseudoephedrine.

    Are you also on some type of ADHD medication, like Adderall? Or maybe did you take some Sudafed, Claritin-D, Zyrtec, Contac (which contain pseudoephedrine)?

    I'm just trying to figure out how a guy lucky enough to obtain a prescription for both Valium and Vicodin can be unemployeed.

    I guess you can't have everything.

    FWIW, Valium is a different benzo than Xanax.

    I thought they were basically brand names for the same thing.

    No. Xanax is the trade name for the drug "Alprazolam". Valium is the trade name for the drug "Diazepam". Different drugs, same family (Benzodiazepines).

    If you don't take the Xanax lately, then that is why you didn't screen positive for Benzodiazepines.

    I'm curious about the Amphetamine positive result. You do see alot of false positives on standard urine analyses, and that is why confirmatory tests should be completed.

    Typically, how long does vicodin stay in your system?

    I net searched for a few minutes and the general consensus seems to be 24-36 hours, but recommended longer durations before taking a urine test, just to be sure it was out of the sytem.

    Blood, serum, or urine?
