Can you fail a drug test with a non controlled substance?
I do take Adderall, but I gave them the bottle with my name & the doctors name. They never questioned it! I'm having a hard time getting a direct answer from the company! But basically my Albenza would not have shown up? Asked by Julee Ennes 2 months ago.

I tested positive on my pre employment drug test for benzene! The only thing I take is Albenza which is a non controlled substance & I showed where I take it! The drug testing office told me they had never heard of the generic form that was on my paperwork! Can they fail my drug test after I gave them the information for the medication I was taking? Answered by Princess Reeves 2 months ago.

I looked up Albenza & it showed that it had benzene in it! The company that wanted to hire me faxed the paperwork about my medicine to the drug testing office. I waited a couple of days & they told me my test was still positive! I have never in my life taken drugs & I didn't want this company to think I was taking drugs! So, I went to the drug testing office & the receptionist told me their fax was down & it had been for almost 2 weeks so they probably didn't get it, but not even a minute later, the nurse calls me back & says they did get it & they didn't recognize the generic name! The nurse knew exactly who I was & out of all the drug tests they probably have done in four days she knew about my test results without even looking at anything! I found the generic form on the internet & it shows what it's a generic for. Do you think it would do me any good to take it to the drug testing office? Answered by Adela Divers 2 months ago.

You should do anything you can so yes if you have information that might help them with the test you need to give it to them. I don't know why you would be tested for benzene, it is not a drug of abuse nor is it a controlled substance under international law/convention or under federal law (in any country I have heard of). It is also a fact benzene is found in air, water, and soil (both from industrial sources and naturally). Smokers have particularly high levels of benzene. However no matter what if you truly are testing positive for benzene (and many industrial workers can) you should seek medical advice. Could it be the test was for benzoylmethylecgonine (cocaine) or benzoylecgonine (a major metabolite of cocaine)? Albenza (albendazole) is classified as a benzimidazole, not benzene. A benzimidazole formed by "mixing" benzene and imidazole. It is not itself benzene but I do suppose it could cause a false-positive. You need to ask them (this is based on American law, if you live elsewhere the process is different) if they did GC-MS confirmation testing (they should have for benzene and albendazole) and you need to ask to speak to a Medical Review Officer (MRO), who is (hopefully) certified by the MROCC. Also ask why they are testing for benzene, normally it is only tested for in situations where there is a concern of benzene exposure, which is potentially harmful. Benzene is regulated by the The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with most information from The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). I have provided a link to the ATSDR Public Health Statement for benzene Answered by Hipolito Olguin 2 months ago.

I won't system this with the ordinary shallow hatefulness obvious via the hysterical lots in the end he's a person: They will revoke his probation and its unknown how so much time he'll get. If he fails and admits to the use he'll usually reasonable larger than seeking to combat it at this factor. Good factor he may not experiment optimistic for meth. If he does, it's going to be so much so much worse I might believe. The process of a probation officer is to make certain he's in compliance with the regulation. You can wager if he went down for medicines he'll be randomly proven at all times. Any use in any respect gets him busted. The first-rate motto now's regret and compliance. This is his best danger to stick loose. Answered by Katlyn Watsky 2 months ago.

The drug testing office typically isn't full of the brightest people, but they cannot fail you if you have a prescription. As long as you have proof of taking Albenza, then you're fine. Answered by Joeann Iese 2 months ago.

Benzene is a major component of gasoline (Petrol) and if you filled up your tank you would have inhaled enough Benzene for it to show up. There aren't any drugs that I'm aware of that have benzene as a byproduct. Hopefully they won't act like morons and will accept the test results. Answered by Jackqueline Hulstine 2 months ago.

Answered by Zulma Grindstaff 2 months ago.

Albendazole (Albenza) is the most common treatment for pinworms. Treatment is a single tablet, which kills the worms. There are different strengths for adults and children younger than 2 years. Because eggs can survive for a few weeks, you will have to take a second dose 2 weeks later to lessen the chance of reinfection. Mebendazole (Vermox) and pyrantel pamoate (Pin-Rid, Pin-X) also work. They are also taken in a single dose and repeated 2 weeks later. Because it is common for everyone in a household to have pinworms at the same time, your doctor may recommend that everyone be treated at the same time. Your doctor may also recommend tap water enemas to help flush out the pinworms and reduce symptoms. After taking the pills, you should also do the following: Get into the habit of carefully washing your hands after using the toilet, and before and after eating. Thoroughly launder all bedding, clothing, and toys to destroy any lingering eggs. Launder all bedding every 3-7 days for 3 weeks. Wash underwear and pajamas daily for 2 weeks. Answered by Dollie Pafford 2 months ago.

Yes, as a family member there is a high probability that you have been exposed to the pinworms as well. If you share a bathroom, use the same hand towels or similar items you could have been contaminated. Best bet is to take the treatment and be done with it. If you are still not sure, call your brothers doctor to double check. Please make sure your mom knows to wash all the bed linens, towels and clothes in hot water to rid them of any possible remnants from the pinworms. Hope this helps to answer your question. Good luck!

Worms in butt, what to do?
Mickey Finn no offence to you, its the worms I'm targetting :/ And if its the porn thing youre offended by then yes its freakin true theres more of that than health and medical. Oh well theyv gone, I did the cotton trick and pooped. Asked by Agnes Fagerstrom 2 months ago.

They appear after eating something sweet. I used to getthem as a kid and would come out by pooping heavy or my mom would do something with cotton bud, like she would try getting it out. It lasted a night often or day and often mostly came out by pooping. I dont know why I still get it I dont know what its called and why its not on the internet anywhere (wth does porn appear instead) I got it after months, it happens after a long period of time. Its not pinworms because those are supposed to last weeks. Its night and I cant sleep because of the discomfort which is the sensation of worms chilling perhaps biting in my butt. Any solutions? Anyone know what this is? I cant poop right now. And I tried washing and cleaning deeply, gross but seriously? Answered by Benny Bendis 2 months ago.

Pinworms..?
what is a way to get rid of pinworms if you have no way of getting medication for it. MATURE answers only. thanks Asked by Altagracia Siriano 2 months ago.

Anti-pinworm drugs such as Albenza (albendazole), Vermox (mebendazole), Piperazine and Pin-X or Reese's Pinworm Medication (pyrantel pamoate) are commonly used to treat pinworms as well as ascaris lumbricoides (the roundworm). It is not a necessity to visit a doctor to get these drugs, as Pin-X is available as an over-the-counter medication (Albenza and Vermox are prescription in the US); ask a pharmacist for medicines to treat pinworms (or threadworms as they are known in the UK). These medicines kill the pinworms 95% of the time, but do not kill the eggs. The person being treated may have to return after a time of two weeks to be re-treated. Another precaution is to wash the hands before eating (to prevent any pinworm eggs under fingernails from being ingested) and to wash any area or clothes which have touched or been in the vicinity of the infected areas. Treating the entire family is often necessary for cure. Answered by Linwood Lepard 2 months ago.

Pinworms are very disgusting, and they aren't caused from animals. They are spread easily, especially in public places. How a person catches them is when they touch something a person with pinworms did, then (usually caused when they bite their nails) or at least bring their fingers to their mouth. The eggs can get under your fingernails, and when you bite your nails, they will get in your mouth. Once they are in the mouth, they move through the digestive system. Your doctor can give you a certain tape like item that you can put near the anus, and eventually they will come out on the tape item. Pinworms can come back easily. Try and get out of the habits of biting your nails or putting your fingers near your mouth, especially after visiting a public place, so you don't swallow they eggs again. The only way to prevent them is wash your hands often and be VERY careful to not to bite your nails. Go to the doctor and he/she will be able to help you. Good luck! Answered by Tora Holyoak 2 months ago.

I've heard of all sorts of remedies, from chewing tobacco to clove powder and garlic. I wouldn't really recommend any of them. The only non-medicine way I can think of is to interfere with their reproduction. You ingest the little eggs, where the acid of the stomach doesn't touch them. They hatch in the small intestine, and travel down to the lower intestine to mate and reproduce. The eggs are then laid on the outside around the anus, and the itching makes you scratch. You pick up the eggs under your fingernails, and eat them- starting the whole cycle again. So the easiest way is to simply not eat them to start with. They exit and lay eggs at night, while you are asleep, so the scratching the itch is not fightable. You will do it automatically in your sleep. You can try wearing gloves- but most folks simply can't sleep that way. What you can do is clean under your fingernails each morning, scrubbing them good with a nailbrush and soap, and scrubbing your hands before you eat everytime. Plus, cleaning under the fingernails after a trip to the bathroom. This process should result in you being worm free in about a week or so, possibly two weeks. Although it should work, it also depends on not one single solitary egg getting to your mouth. That's a problem at night again- because what you do with your hands while you are asleep is not something you can control. It's just a lot easier to head to the drug store and get one of the over the counter pinworm remedies- Pin-X is one, the pharmacist will know any others they carry. You can also go to the doctor, but the medicine is pretty much the same- only with a doctor bill to boot. Your option what you choose, but the easiest and most effective, in the shortest amount of time, is the pills. And in the future, unless you want a revisit, remember to wash your hands before you eat. Answered by Heather Falge 2 months ago.

Do not worry they will go away but you just have to be clean and make sure you take a pinworm tablet don't listen to the questions what scare you they will go away but they will take time. Get a bath in a morning Change pants Cloths Bed sheets Clean dust and Hoover carpets Clean your hands when been toilet And when eating food and THEN THE WILL BE GONE, DONT WORRY they will be gone by two month if they don't go to your doctor Answered by Lawanna Gurwell 2 months ago.

You can get the medication totally free from your nearest health dept. If you don't cure it you can spread it to others. Answered by Victor Putzer 2 months ago.
