Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thank you for asking a premium question. I think maybe some of your question got cut off -- what exactly are you concerned about in terms of drug testing? I'll try and write out the information I think you're looking for while you update your question with a little more detail.

Typical urine drug screens come in a 9-drug panel and can only detect those drugs, typical within a few hours of taking them, and can detect them for about 3-7 days depending on the substance. The specific drugs it detects are as follows:

Cocaine
Amphetamine
Methamphetamine
Marijuana
Opiates (codeine, morphine, heroin, etc)
PCP
Barbiturates
Benzodiazepines (Xanax, Ativan, Valium, etc)
Methadone and propoxyphene

Most drugs can be tested in the blood, but these tests are expensive sendout tests that are not routinely done.

I looked over all the drugs you listed in your medical history -- it appears that none of them would show up in a urine drug screen, so I wouldn't worry about that.

Let me know if you have any further questions at all.
