    • Most chemicals will stay in your system from 72 to 78 hours. chemicals will stay in your hair and your body’s fatty tissue for years. best not to do them at least 5 to 7 days prior to a probation visit that you will be requested to to a drop.

      According to my info every medicine you eat you inject in you body will remaining your blood for next 6 moths maximum and can be detectable through blood or urine tests.

      THIS QUESTION SHOULD NOT be under “illegal drugs” listing, as it is a legal prescription drug. HOWEVER, if it is misused, it would be illegal USE of a controlled drug (narcotic pain killer). IF it is obtained without a prescription or valid need, it can get you in trouble. If it is prescribed by a physician for a valid reason, you shouldn’t have to worry about it being in your system, for a urine test for example. Narcotics, depending on amount used, can be detected in your system for at LEAST 48 to 72 hours. If you are misusing Vicodin and need to pass a urine test, you should STOP taking the drug. Urine drug testing looks for: cannabis (marijuana, hashish), opiates(sedatives, narcotics), cocaine, heroin, stimulants (speed, methylphenidate [Ritalin], narcotic painkillers (Percocet, Vicodin, Oxycontin, Morphine (MS contin, MS IR), tranquilizers (Valium, Ativan etc.), sleeping pills (Dalmane, chloral hydrate, Halcion) among others. Again, if you have a medical need and a valid prescription from a doctor, you shouldn’t have to worry about it when they find it in your urine or blood.

  2. How does a mouth swab drug test work?
    I’m going to have to take a mouth swab drug test for a new job and I was wondering what it would be all about. I have no reason to worry about whether or not it will come back postive. I’m just wondering what they are testing for, and how long it usually takes to get the results back. Also is it typically done in a Doctor Office?

    • The saliva test is actually the most “lenient” of all the drug tests. Basically, when you smoke, say, marijuana, many of the particles you breathe in will contact your saliva, and some of them will “stick” to it.
      So, when the swab picks up some saliva, it will also ‘grab’ some of the smoke particles that landed in your saliva, and if such narcotics are detected in a high enough *concentration*, then the test will return positive.
      For some opiates and cocaine, some of the particles from the blood will enter into the saliva, making for a longer test period, of maybe 2-3 days at most. For anything smoked, the test is only good for 12-16 hours tops.
      IIRC, it is one of the cheaper tests, and results come back quickly.

    • It can depend on your metabolism and amount smoked, but weed stays with you for a few months. You could try one of those nasty drinks sold at a head shop that costs about $40 and drink a lot of water, but I kind of doubt that will help when testing actual cells instead of urine. Best of luck!

    I recently came back from Europe (went to Amsterdam’s coffee shops) and I will be performing a swab drug test in a few days for employment. At the time of the test, I will have not smoked marijuana for 7 days. I have been a chronic user for many years and I am worried that it still may be detected past 72 hours.
