Concerned Says:

I received results from a hair follicle drug test and I'm not sure what the levels mean. The test showed positive for expanded opiates, more specifically oxycodone. The level was around 3900 pg/mg. The test was for 90 days. What does this mean about the tested person's drug use?

It really depends on what information you're looking for in response to your question.

For instance, if they haven't been prescribed Oxycodone, so they aren't supposed to be taking it, then the detection of any would be considered a failure of the test.

Learn more Oxycodone details here.

However, if you're asking what the level means according to the dosage they're taking if it's been prescribed, then only their prescribing doctor can provide you with that information, because there are many factors that go into determining someone's appropriate level.

What specific information were you looking for?

My husband was an occasional medical marijuana user. Usually only 1 or 2 hits ands stops. Averaged a couple times a month. Last used 12/23 and only 2-3 hits. Yesterday 1/12/17 he had to submit hair follicle test. He is bald so they took armpit hair that was only 1/2 in long or shorter. Is it at all possible he might pass?

Hey, I have an important question. Me and my husband and kids did a hair test for dss. Ours came back negative but our concern is our kids came back negative thc cooh and positive for native thc. My sons was 183.2pg/mg. We would have to be heavy smokers for that to be true. And our daughters was 53.0, still too high... I think they are false and may have been an error bc my kids have never been exposed period at all. My son is 17 months old and my daughter is 3. Cps removed them and placed them with my mom. We are torn. Someone please help explain this bc idk how?

Without a reference to the actual drug and or chemical found the levels are meaningless.As for an accurate response you'll need to be more specific as to what drug you tested positive for.

In May, a person's test for cocaine was 3,000. New test taken over the last 2 weeks came back as 300 pg/mg. This person hasn't taken any more since May. Does this mean it is leaving the system and why is it still positive? Is there some way to prove it's leaving?

My daughter is 4 months old. We passed our tests, but my daughter failed for Methamphetamine with levels of 5537pg/mg... My mother blames me, and says I tried to kill my daughter, but we passed... How can this be? What does this result even mean, and how could she fail when no one in our home did? I need as much information as possible, please. I don't know how this happened...

What is a level of 736 on a hair follicle test positive for methamphetamine and what all can give a positive reading for methamphetamine? And can it get into ur system from sex with someone who's taken it or by touching small pieces, as I cleaned a house that methamphetamine was used in?

Re: Stephanie (# 9)

You are absolutely correct, you can test positive for cocaine by being intimate with someone who takes it. My ex used and I was literally Susy homemaker and I failed a urine for employment.
