Question: im scared
|thegman_2k2 - Tue May 31, 2005 9:16 am|
here is my situation, i am 16 and taking cyclosporin for eczema. Therefore every few weeks i am given blood tests and urine samples. The night before the last blood and urinetest i was given a rolled up cigrette which i smoked. Later i was told this contained cannibis resin. Im really scared, i was told by the nurse that these were to check for blood count and iron and liver function and such things. I never wanted to take drugs. If the tests are not to test for drugs then will they inform me of any found drugs please help me im scared.

Drugs are identified by specific drug screens, not general lab tests.
