Question: Drug test


 Renae - Wed Apr 27, 2005 5:15 pm

I have had a migraine for the past week and my doctor has tried Imitrex and Frova. The Imitrex caused severe chest tightness and then I passed out. Then my docotr tried Frova and I had similar symptoms but I did not pass out. Finally, I was in so much pain I decided to just take some pills that I had from a previous injury. I took a Darvocet and when that didn't help I took an Ultram. I know that I shouldn't self medicate but my head really hurts. Anyway, I have to take a random drug screen at work and was wondering if these would show up on the screen. I have prescriptions for them both but I don't really want them knowing my business.

If anyone can help I would really, really appreciate it. :(

User avatar Hi Renae,
It's certainly not an impossibility that these drugs would show up on a drug screen if it were taken within approximately 3 days of administration (generally speaking).
Sincerely,

User avatar Hello,
Darvocet is a narcotic analgesic and may show in some (comprehensive) drug screens as far as I know.
Best regards,
