drug testing

  1. 0 I have a question. I recently had a dental procedure, I was prescribed Norco. I'm about to take a drug test for a new job and I am terrified that this will show up. Does anyone know what drug panel dignity health uses?
    Any information will be greatly appreciated.

    I don't have to know what particular drug panel an employer uses to know that Norco will be included.
    If you have a valid script, there is nothing to be terrified about.

    Agreed. Norco is not exactly obscure. It will be included.

    I do have a valid RX, and the doctor even told me he would be willing to write me a letter stating this fact. What I'm concerned about is that it's for a pre employment offer. Just worried they may find a reason to say no simply because I'm taking the medication. Either way thank you for your input. Should I take my RX bottle when going in for the test?

    If you're worried, take the bottle. It will show up on the test, yes. Tell them you're taking it, tell them why. Show them the bottle. It will not be a big deal.

    Yes, show them the bottle. The folks who process your sample will make note of it, and depending on their protocol, may send a final 'clean' report if it all jives for them. Said again, if they match detected metabolites with a valid script, then the final report will read as clean. These labs only report 'hot' when you can't/don't produce legit evidence.
