The tests are faulty as shit.
I wouldn’t bank on any advice given based purely on that, and then there’s also the fact we all absorb drugs at different speeds.
Weed absorbs into your fat cells so depending on how much body fat you have the results can vary widely.
Ive known people to swab positive 3 days after a casual smoke and others smoke habitually while getting a negative every time.
On one occasion I lunged a bong, jumped in the car, got pulled over within 10 minutes and swabbed clean. (I’ve been told that this can happen because the drugs hadn’t completely absorbed into my system yet but fuck knows if that’s legit)

The good news is they send your blood away and that returns a nearly 100% accurate result so theoretically if you are doing the right thing and steering clear of driving for 24 hours it will become nothing more than an inconvenience for your holiday.

Carry your script and or doctors note and that will cover you legally for your meds, supposedly the test can tell the difference anyhow *cough cough.

Each state in Australia has different tests and slightly different rules.

In NSW the roadside tests test specifically for Methamphetamine and not dexamphetamine. So people on ADHD meds commonly used in Australia have no problem.

Note that even if you have a script for your drug and it is not in the test, the police can still charge you for driving impaired by the drug. However, they have to make the case.

just this side of the edge.

Yea you bring up a really good point.

Script or no script, if you seem intoxicated the cops will pull your license for the day and take tests. If you come back positive for anything intoxicating you'll be charged.

Don’t drive fucked up on meth. It only makes you feel like a test pilot. In reality you’re the wrong way, upside down, through a zebra crossing and 12 pre-schoolers and a nun.

Speaking of drug testing in general, I was recently diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorder and ADHD. I was prescribed Risperidone and will be starting Ritalin soon. Risperidone had a calming effect but has a few side effects that will probably take another month to get used to. Not a pleasant drug to be honest, but better than Abilify.

The psych told me I needed a urine test before any authorisation for Ritalin would be forthcoming. What do these urine tests detect besides drugs of abuse?

In NSW if you have ever been a drug addict and known as such to a doctor, then he will have reported you to the Department of Health.

Thereafter, if a psychiatrist wants to prescribe you stimulants then you need to do a urine test which tests for drugs of abuse (including benzos and other Rx drugs).

I think it’s pretty much a formality. I did mine about a month after ending a 6 month meth binge and there were no issues at all getting prescribed dex based on the results.

I see. Do these urine tests also detect specific antipsychotics? I hear that some antipsychotics can cause false positives which had me concerned since I'm on them. I am almost certain that any drug of abuse would be easily detected. But what about other non-abusable drugs?

I think that is something you’d need to research. As for false positives, don’t worry about that until you get one.

Then just inform your doctor of what meds you are on and that it must be a false positive. Worst case: they do a blood test to be sure.

The same psych prescribed the Risperidone, so I'm not too worried at this point.

problems in your kidneys can be detected in urine tests if performed secondarily.
