Positive 40 days from the end WOW!

so I am literally 40 days out and was given option 4. I called my case manager at PNAP and was like you do have my list of meds right. She was like no. I immediately sent her the list which for me includes Cyclobenzaprine; Diet Pills Stacker; Prozac; otc water pills; Naproxen; Benedryl; KDur; Mag; and Melatonin. I then get an email today that my option 4 drug test showed medications they don't have on file for me. I have been taking this *** for over a year and nothing then I get option 4 and I am told I am positive. Anyone know what could be showing up as a substance of abuse. No sleep tonight

Something like this happened to me the first month I started testing. I was sick with pneumonia and on a cough med (non narcotic).

Tested positive, they refused to tell me what it was for. She insisted she had my med list... Got rude immediately when I questioned her on it a second time. Escalated to the MRO after two weeks of sobbing torture. I mean hysterical kitchen table sobbing. He didn't even complete the call during the scheduled time, they called me to let me know she didn't bother to look and I was fine. I can only assume it was the D in the sudafed. I get pneumonia annually. I don't go to the doctor for pneumonia anymore.

When I emailed her to confirm everything was fine she responded. "Nothing further is needed."

You will become human again when this is over, or at least thats what people keep telling me.

Deep breath. Escalate to the mro. Stay calm and stick to the facts.

All is good. My prescriptions showed that the positive was for one of my scripts. Whew. Now on to life for another 39 days + or - 10 days. #socloseyetsofaraway

Still shocks me how dismissive and rude people representing the Board can be to nurses in recovery, like we’re some kind of rabid animal. My position is, if you have some axe to grind against addicts and alcoholics, and you think we’re immoral, maybe this isn’t the right job for you.
