I am in drug court cause I had addiction to lortab. I get drug tested about 2-3 times a week. They are really strick on what we can take, I mean we can't even take advil. I have really bad insomnia and have a prescription of ambien. So my question is will ambien show up in a urine screen???

What type of test are they doing? Neither the Zolpidem in Ambien, nor the Ibuprofen in Advil are substances that are normally tested for on these urine tests.

In addition, they cannot deny you the use of a legally prescribed medication. You should just inform them of this, though they can ask for proof from your doctor, if they wish.

Ambien can cause side effects, that you should be aware of, such as: nausea, short-term memory loss, hallucinations and delusions.

I am on methadone i have a prescription and my probation officer told me to get off of it or she would make me go cold turkey. well I talked to my lawyer amd they cannot make you stop taking any prescription period. no mater what. They are not F***ing doctors ya know?? Also if they were to do it you could file a lawsuit... And you could also tell them that is discrimination against you if they give you a hard time man

Being in drug court and being on probation are two different things. Drug court gives addicts an opportunity to go to long term rehabilitation instead of going to jail. Rules of drug courts differ, for example some do not allow any prescription drugs, if your on prescription drugs you will not be accepted to drug court. They can certainly deny prescription drugs, and even some over the counter medications. Drug court is a priveledge for an addict to get help and they dont fool around. If you break the rules you go to jail. If they did catch you taking ambiem they will see it as drug seeking behavior and send you to jail. Its not worth it. In drug court they make the rules and if you dont follow them its off to jail a you go.

hydromorphone (dilaudid) has a low oral bioavailability. that means that when taken orally, very little of the chemical makes it into your bloodstream. most people IV dilaudid in order to get the full bast of it, which gives you a rush more powerful than heroin. it's like riding a f*****g rocket to the moon. unless you want to become immediately addicted to the needle, I would NOT recommend doing it.

It normally take 40hrs lots of people will tell you to try supplement but actually they are being checked i have worked for the Probation Office in my state now for years doing the drug testing and I will tell you the only way is to be upfront give them all medication explain to them what you actually take then take all the medications in with you when you go to see your probation officer you can also get a list of your medications from your pharmacy

im curious.. how did the urine test go - and did the generic for Ambien show up on the test or was your test clean?

I take ativan, even 12mg at 7pm and will test Clean the following day at the methadone clinic - and these people are so very very picky with their testing.. using both urine and swabs now - and ativan - and i have heard from Others - Not from my Own Exp. so not sure - that Ambien is gone by the following days urine test...

Was it this way for you?
did u test clean?

Thanks for the follow up info

just as a reminder - i have posted before:

Not ALL Benzos are The Same.
They Vary Greatly in the time they take to leave the body..
ex: Ativan is gone F A S T!! Ativan is a fast-acting benzo thus it is out of your system and you are peeing clean in 9-17 hours. I know from experience, even 12mg at 7pm and my urine test is Clean at 11:30 am the next day. And my body usually 'hangs onto' meds/drugs longer than most people. I used to test dirty for heroin 6-8 days after using once!
That's just my body - we are all different - but like i said: Ativan is a Fast Acting Benzo.. and is usually 'not testable' in 9-17 hours.

Now as for Valium.. That is a Long-Acting Benzo...

Drug Court programs can and do. These are usually voluntary programs that are alternatives to incarceration and one of the first things you will do if you are both eligible and accepted into one, is sign a bunch of legal documents essentially terminating your legal rights to just about everything. You can quit when ever you want... but you will go to jail if you do.

If you are going to go see your Pain Management Dr and you know he is going to do a drug test, don't take Ambien /Zolpidem the night before and you should be fine. But if he decided to send it to the lab for further testing then you might have a problem. Good luck :)

Ambien does show up on urine tests as an opiate. I was discharged from a drug treatment program today because of it...& I just had a major neck surgery w/ a prescription.

I take ambien for insomnia but am in treatment for it. I understand there is a new 7 day test they can do to see if you have it in your system, is this true? And what is ambien, a benzo or an opiate? I also take Zanax for anxiety, benzo or opiate? How long before these won't show up on a urine test? Thank you.
