What should I avoid before a drug test?

To receive accurate results on your drug test, there are certain things you should avoid before your test. Your doctor, employer, or agency will let you know in detail what should be avoided, depending on the particular drug test you will be taking. However, regardless of the drug test, there are a couple of activities everyone should stop doing the day before taking a drug test.

The first thing you should avoid before a drug test is obviously consuming any kind of drug. This includes sleeping medication, pain and/or coughing medication. Any of these medications may trigger a false positive for PCP if consumed before a drug test. However, it’s important to speak to your doctor before suspending any medication he directly prescribed for you.

It is also important to avoid consuming poppy seeds. Although these seeds are harmless, they contain small amounts of codeine and morphine that may cause you to have a false positive drug test. Besides poppy seeds, hemp seeds, which are found in granola bars, also shouldn’t be consumed because they may also cause a false positive drug test.
