Saliva drug tests are able to detect a number of different drugs. However, they are able to most effectively test for opiates and methamphetamines. THC and cannabinoids use may go undetected with a saliva drug tests. They are not perceived as particularly reliable for the detection of either of these drugs.

Saliva drug tests can detect alcohol use, drugs, therapeutic drugs, metabolites, amphetamines, opioids, cocaine, heroin and methadone. It is also used to test for cannabis but as mentioned before, the detection of THC is unreliable using this type of test.

Do you have any other questions or concerns regarding this? Please post back if you do...

Of all the most commonly used drugs today, I found that the saliva test can go as far back as 10 days. Most drugs are anywhere between 1-5 days but there are others that are 1-10 days or 3-4 days, all depending on the drug of coarse.

In general, if you give yourself over 10 days you should have nothing to worry about in the event of a saliva test.

Does a swab saliva test for flexaril?

To answer your question, Flexeril is not in the class of drugs generally tested for on standard drug testing (saliva, urine, blood or hair). My research suggests that there are but some enlarged drug tests which can notice metabolites of the drug.

The only exception is a benzodiazepine drug test, where it can show a false positive result because of too much Flexeril taken. So if you’re facing a benzodiazepine drug test and you took Flexeril less then a week ago, you may have to use alternative detox methods in order to pass, or simply show your prescription at the time of the testing.

I know this isn't necessarily a direct answer, but just be aware that a saliva test is most effective only in the first week, as saliva composition changes with every passing day and the best result will be found when the individual stops taking the drug just several days before test.

@Rick,

Benzodiazepines can be detected in your saliva for up to 1-10 days after your last dose. It's kind of a broad time-frame, but from what I can gather, you're pretty much in the clear after a week has passed.

I hope this helps!

I had to take one of those saliva drug tests yesterday for a job and it came back inconclusive. They said they would have to send it out and that it happens all the time. Would Lutera show up in there? I really need/want this job and I have never done drugs. Should I be worried? It should have just come back negative, right?

A friend is getting read to start a new job. The company does mouth swab test. He smokes mary daily, however, not so much recently, but is also prescribed xanax. will they take note of prescribed meds and take that into consideration with results of mouth swab? or make him take a urine or blood test? will his xanax cause a false positive for anything else? the fact that he has smoked daily for years, will a week without smoking be sufficient to pass the swab test?
