Question: What's the possibility of me passing a drug test I took recently? So I took half a 80mg OxyContin pill on Sunday at 9am and had a urine test Thursday at 3 pm.

Detailed Answer:
thanks for the response.
in usual conditions, the effects last 5 days.
so you should be fine.
however, you have taken 80 mg.
in high doses, it can take upto 2 weeks.
so it depends on the metabolism.
if you have been taking plenty of fluids, it's likely to have cleared off.
unfortunately, there is no clear cut yes and no answer to your query . but I think if you have a normal metabolism, it may be in your favor.
best of luck.

Well I only took half of the pill and yes I drank plenty of water the days before the urine test. My metabolism is pretty fast too and I excercise daily. I always take viatmins and I'm pretty healthy when it comes to diet.

Thanks for the information.
But there's no non investigation based method by which I can predict it further.
So we will have to wait and watch .
Best of luck.

I just took a pre-employment drug test and prescribed Klonopin 0.5mg PRN. After reading around, it seems these drug tests will detect 200ng/mL. If I took 0.5mg of Klonopin once per day for 3 out of 5 days leading up to my drug test, will that be detected in the 200ng/mL? What does 200ng/mL equal? I m 5 7 , 130lbs, fast metabolism. I know this should be a non-issue since it s prescribed, but I didn t think to mention it for the drug test and will not be excited to have to explain it if they even give me the chance.

I had an UTI and was told Niacin would help it go away. I had no money and had this at home so I took one 500mg cap a day and drank plenty on water for 7 days. I ended up getting a random drug test and the results said my creatinine was too low. Iddidn t even know what that was but they assume I tried deputing my urine and that s not the case. I told them this stuff was the only thing I have ingested, so.. I have 2 questions.. Does Niacin help with UTIs? Also could niacin make my urine test results on creatinine levels occur that way. I m curious and scared and could really use answers, and from someone who for sure knows the right answer.
