Is there any medicament available for reducing the drug content in the urine?

Hello, doctors! Well, im writing this in behalf of my friend. I just want to ask a few questions that he s been asking me over and over for the last few hours, but i just cant give him definite and concrete answers. He desperately needs an expert s advise. Well, this is the story. Hes been smoking shabu (crack) regularly for nearly a year now. His last hit was last night. It really hit his face hard when he remembered that he will be having a urine drug test in 1week s time. Is there any chance of passing the test, or are there ways/meds, etc to help him get his urine clear of drugs/drug metabololites?! Please help me help him. I know what hes doing is wrong but maybe we could help hm get back on track after this. Thank you so much in advance. I would really appreciate to hear from u soon. Thank you again!

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I appreciate your concern for your friend. But I think as a good friend you should be focussing on taking efforts to get him the help he needs to quit his addiction, rather than finding out means to somehow pass the drug test. This is only going to do more damage to him than any good.

Anyway, in response to your query, the drug detection times for coccaine depend on the frequency, amount and duration of use. Though the average detection time for coccaine is 3 - 4 days, yet people who are chronic and frequent users have a higher chance of failing the test.

Wish you all the best.

Regards,
