Drug test - Valtrex

Recommended Posts

crazypuglady

Hi all,

My company is drug testing all employees with a very thorough drug test covering prescribed and illegal drugs. Just wondering if anyone had any advice on the below:

  1. I am taking 1000mg Valtrex every day ongoing. Will this show up as a red flag either as an excessive amount, or as a potentially illicit drug in a manner similar to codeine? I am planning to declare the medication that I am on.
  2. The drug testing is done by an external provider - are they likely to reveal any medication we have declared to our employer?

Thank you for your help!

drug testing only identifies street drugs. they wont be testing anything more - companies prefer not to pay up the wazoo for checks on additional items. also law states companies have to follow HIPAA. short answer no and no.

Do not worry yourself. Valtrex would not be an issue as it is not Scheduled drug. You don't even need to declare.

      @MissHorne, Please don't take what I said as a criticism. Just thinking out loud and wondering if he reads these. I haven't seen anything derogatory.

      Really need to sort my anxiety out. I've had heth anxiety for a few years and my new worry is hsv2. I think I had 1x unprotected exposure. The reason I say i think is that I passed out and  was possibly assaulted. No lesions, blisters ever seen. Ive been checking. Though 8 weeks after exposure had tingling and itching that lasted for 6-8 weeks on and off. I had this for a good year and a half.  Saw 3 GPs, and visited GuM twice where I was referred to a vulva dermatologist. A culture for HSV was taken, this came back negative.I was diagnosed as having Lichen and prescribed steroids which helped reduce symptoms. I just need some reasurance that I can assume I don't have this and move on. Is the fact that I had a negative culture enough proof and the absence of lessions etc reassuring? Thanks
