i have to take the drug test in a couple of days and i will come up positive. can they deny me my seat because of these prescription meds? or is it safe to say they will just ask me to stop taking them? i dont want to loose my seat due to this. i am about to start physical therapy on monday so i can hopefully get weened off of these narcotics. i'm just freaking out. i dont want to take these meds anymore anyways but now my body is addicted to them. it is going to be really hard to ween myself off.
the fact that you know you are now addicted to narcotic pain medications should be a red flag
can they deny me my seat because of these prescription meds? or is it safe to say they will just ask me to stop taking them? check with your school & bon. there is no way anyone on this message board can tell you what it is safe to assume regarding your potential positive drug screen with a valid md rx. even if someone else was in a similar situation with the same bon, there is no guarantee what that student was told will be the same as what you will be told.
many bon's prohibit the use of certain narcotics/controlled substances when working (and clinical placements are often considered "working"), regardless of whether or not you have a prescription.
make an appointment to discuss your situation with your physician and let him/her know of your concerns.
