Snorting bath salts Can this be detected in a drug test?

My sons ex wife has been snorting bath salts Can this be detected in a drug test? If so should it be a urine, hair follicle or blood test? How long would she have to be off of it for it to not show up in a drug test?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
MDPV is being abused by many people these days in the form of bath salts.There are tests available to detect this chemical in urine and blood.Please approach your local druggist for knowing the specific brand name and usage procedure.


Take care.

Hello. I am a mother of a 15 year old who, as of late, has been experimenting with bath salts and I, needless to say, am beside myself. We have him set up to enter the best treatment facility we could find in our state with a specialty for treating youths. However, his bed date is still nine days out. For the record, this is the first time we have EVER had a problem with our son. He has always been a focused, ambitious, and all american kid, a true blessing and we are more than grateful. To get to the point, I am positive he is using but cannot prove it and for our peace of mind and to do the best for him, we need to know. Will this horrible substance show positive on a drug test? I purchased one this morning and it tests for amphetamines , methamphetamines, thc, cocaine, and heroine only. Do you happen to know the answer on the screening ability? My husband said there is no way any of the street drugs on this test could be in bath salts since they are legal to purchase. I am skeptical myself, but anything is possible. Sorry for my lengthy message here, but I am just beyond worried about our boy. Please help? Thank you ever so much for your time. God bless....

hi, i have been using mdpv for few months. My vagina always hurt when my husband and I had an intercourse then it hurts for me to pee - burning sensation for at least 3 days. It never use to be like this then I realized that i didnt drink enough water like i use to when i just started taking MDPV; so i began to do so and the pain finally gone away. Now it starting to hurt again even after i drank lots of water (still using mdpv), so I bought a test to see maybe i have bacteria or thrush as it feels like thrush. The test result says that i have UTI. I am going to see a doctor but in the mean time, what should i avoid eating? I have been craving lots of ice cream lately, is this ok? I dont eat much meat & mostly fresh fruits, vegetables & I do have a good diet / actually likes the taste of healthy food. I also love chili peppers but i know such food should be avoided so i have cut it down.

I inhaled 100 mg of mdpv and I feel horrible. I even threw up. What can I do to disapate this? Ordered on the internet and did not know normal dosage. How much of an overdose did I take? What can I expect? Did I do permanent damage? I promise I will never do this again.

i am scheduled for a medical outpatient procedure tomorrow morning, for which i will be under general anesthesia for a short while (15 minute procedure) and yesterday i ingested innocuously a so called bath salt, not realizing it had what i have googled now as MDPV in it. i have searched for any contra-indications for the anesthesia and have only found that some patients come in so crazy on that crap, that they have to be put under anesthesia. i do not want to disclose this information as this is my orthopedist, and the stigma as some kind of druggy, surely would adversely affect the medications that i receive to control the pain i almost constantly endure. what should i do? it really was unknown to me that this so called legal drug contained anything other than the vitamin b-12, and sodium bicarbinate that was on the bag. i dont want to risk continuing in constant pain, and would not have done so had i known. my friend just came by and said check this out it will give you energy. i feel so foolish now. i didn t snort it as suggested but rather ingested like a goody powder a small amount
