What is the difference between an oral drug examination and a urine sample examination?

I need to know how far back an oral examination is good at detecting drug use. I have an important interview coming up with a company I want to work for and if given the job, I will have to submit to an oral drug screening. I don't know if I should have something to worry about or if it's a less effective method than the urine specimen examination.

An oral examination doesn't go back nearly as far as a urine sample. Its out of your saliva quicker than your urine.

"For most drugs, the window of detection in oral fluid is about one-to-three days."  (+ info)

What different types of drug tests have you endured for an employer?

I have usually had urine tests but today I got a drug test for my new job and they did it right at the store. They used a cotton swab and i had to hold it in my mouth for 6 minutes then wait for a boring test. Anyone else ever have the cotton swab test or any other type of test?

no idea what that could be, EXCEPT maybe alcohol?  (+ info)

How does alcohol or drug abuse affect the individual and their family?

How does alcohol or drug abuse affect the user and their family? How do they feel? What do they do? What can they do?

I'm only answering the Alcohol part of this question as I have personal experience but no experience of drug abuse.

It depends entirely on the individual.You can be an alcohol abuser for decades and the only clue family might have is that they often smell alcohol on your breath at any time of day or night.Your family might be aware that you drink a lot and they too drink a lot. In these scenarios your family may not be affected at all. You may have some brilliant nights out, really memorable ones where you were so happy you want to do it again.... (and again, and again). However, you as a heavy drinker are exposed to no end of health problems.

Physical and mental health problems can manifest themselves at any time. You might drink far too much and then choke to death on your own vomit. This can even happen to somebody who has their first alcoholic drink(s) in their life. You may become promiscuous due to intoxication and even get AIDS/other sexually transmitted diseases/raped/pregnant/killed. You may become obese. You may spiral into an alcoholic depression and harm or kill yourself. You may get cirrhosis of the liver (don't kid yourself, teenagers can die from this). You may physically abuse your family and not even remember the next day what you did. You may suffer "cold turkey" as often as 1/2/3 times a week.. cold turkey can result in you skipping work (losing your job), make others very worried at your shaking and sweating, vomiting several times a day. Get hooked on drinking to stave off withdrawal symptoms.

So that is how you and your family can be affected. How they feel is dependent on your symptoms. What do they do? It's dependent on your symptoms. What can they do? Nag you. Nag you. Nag you. Ultimately they can do nothing, it depends entirely on you.

What is the best drug store brand of pencil eyeliner?

I am looking for a brown eyeliner pencil and I am hoping that someone can suggest a good drug store brand. Thanks!

revlon colorstay eyeliner! best drugstore brand, you don't have to tug at your eyelids to get some color. lasts about 6 hrs which is good for school, of course it smears though b/a EVERY drugstore brand eyeliner sucks. if you want an eyeliner that stays on all day&doesn't move get a gel eyeliner from stila or bobbi brown, more expensive but it's worth it  (+ info)

How long does it take to get drug test results?

I took a drug test last Tuesday, (6 days ago) and I still haven't heard back from the employer. I have never done any sort of drug use, and I don't understand why it's taking so long. The nurse at the clinic said it would take 1-2 days for the results to come back. And, if it is a false positive, which I know can happen, do you think they would let me test again, at my own expense?

What is the best drug store bought foundation and concealer for oily skin & sweat proof?

I have oily skin,and i need a good foundation & concealer but i also need sweat proof.what is the best you can get from a drug store?

I would suggest Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer. It's creamy, long lasting and great coverage. Here is a link with some info. You can find it at Sephora on Bobbi Brown makeup counters.

If you are not able to find your shade my second choice would be the KAT VON D concealor. It's waterproof and LONG LONG LONG lasting. It's not as creamy as the Bobbi Brown which can be an issue for my dry skin, but if you have normal-oily skin it should be perfect.

Here is a link with some info. You can find this at Sephora


Loreal True match foundation is great for oily skin is oil free, fragrance free
very gentle this foundation is long lasting too the finish is very good medium coverage.  (+ info)

How acurate is a drug screening test using swabs on the inside of the mouth ?

Hi can anyone tell me about drug screening using the swab testing on the inside of your mouth
How is it done?
Is it fail safe?
How far back does the test work correctly? 2 weeks or longer?

They test your oral fluids (saliva, etc.) to see if there are traces or absences of certain drugs or metabolized traces of them. To my knowledge, they would do it just like a throat culture. Meaning they would take a q-tip like instrument and swab the inside of your mouth then send it off for testing. Fail safe? I'm not sure what you mean. If you're asking if it fails, then I suppose it could. The test can detect use during the few previous days.  (+ info)

What does a home drug testing lab do when bleach is found in a urine sample?

ok so say you were drug tested, and you accadently put some water, and liquid bleach into your urine, and you tested positive for a substance. The urine sample was sent to the lab for further analysis. What do you think would happen?

They know all sorts of weird chemical compounds. If it really is bleach, they will figure it out.  (+ info)

How can you fail a drug test without doing drugs?

I recently got hired for a new job after 5 months of being unemployed, but I have to take a drug test. I don't smoke, drink, do drugs, or anything else. But ever since I saw the Seinfeld when Elaine failed because of the poppyseed bagel I've been kind of paranoid because I'm the person who feels that everything bad happens to them. Are there any foods or anything else I should stay away from for the time being? Or am I just being paranoid and have nothing to worry about since I don't do drugs?

Well I think you will pass the drug test .
Don't worry be happy.  (+ info)
