Is It Time For A Drug Test? (Part 1)

Medication monitoring/management? Then you know the routine when you see your doctor, time to pee in a cup for a “drug test.”

Approximately now–may be a good time to give you the secret to pass any type Drug Test you will need to take. This dependable secret will get you a 99% pass for any drug test. What is it? Don’t use illicit drugs!

There can be false positives that account the 1% of fails. Do you need help? See Alcohol & Substance Abuse Symptoms.

Mental Health Drug Tests

Millennium Urine Drug Testing (UDT), yes, they test your pee! They say on the importance of their assessment tool, is that is helps clinicians “monitor and support decisions about medication therapy, particularly controlled substances,” identify prescription meds, non-prescription, and illicit drugs/substances.  They also point out that they can help detect drug-drug interaction and treatment plans. Once again they mention “Identify possible illicit drug or medication abuse, misuse or diversion.”

A  Urine Drug Testing (UDT) can also “Identify potential illicit drug or medication abuse, misuse.”

Drug Testing, it’s calculated–kind of like the Mental Health Humor (Over-Medicated.com) “Drug Test” (#1707).  But don’t be fooled, Urine Drug Testing is serious business!

Let’s move away from the drug testing for mental health requirement to get some medications. Cause correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe you can’t measure and monitor the therapeutic level of carbamazepine (Tegretol, Carbatrol, Equetro, and Epitol) with Urine Drug Testing?

That would require a blood test to determine carbamazepine therapeutic range/level. See: https://www.drugs.com/dosage/carbamazepine.html

Let’s Talk About Money.

Need a job? Want to keep working?

Riddle me this: Do you know what the most common drug test employers require?
