Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I am sorry to hear about your daughter. It can take up to a week to get the confirmatory results back on a positive urine drug screen. The outside lab will check it more closely to see if it could be another drug causing a false positive test for narcotics.


How long ago was your daughter in the hospital and receiving the Fentanyl?
