My psychiatrist prescribes me Ativan 1mg QD PRN panic. I have taken about 3 in the last 10 months. I did take 1mg on 2-15 and 1mg 2-16. I took my pre-employment drug screen for the hospital I'm going to work at on 2-22-13 and I wrote down on the paper that asked if you take any meds that I'm prescribed Ativan. I honestly would be surprised if they were detected but I listed my Rx anyway. Do you think the hospital will frown upon me taking Ativan? Will I have any trouble with this Rx? I also have an old Rx for Xanax dated from 2011. Does each pill show up individually or will they both show up under benzodiazepines since that's what they both are and if so will my Ativan Rx cover it? My Xanax Rx is from 2011 and I'm worried they may say something about the date..any idea how long it takes to get drug screen results back? Although it was done it the hospital I noticed they were sending it out by UPS. I have my appointment with the human resource manager Tuesday morning so I'm hoping its back by then. Also, how long does it take to run a background check? just for the record I was on Xanax then switched to Ativan- I'm not a pill junkie
I get Such bad panic attacks I've had to go the the ER before so benzodiazepines are a big help if I go into an attack.
